Apostle Dr. Loretta Rich, Senior Pastor, President, and Professor of the Bible College 

Non-Denominational Church & Bible College

Fall Semester:

The Holy Bible is inspired by GOD. The one true God reveals Himself as the eternally self-existent creator of heaven and earth, and Redeemer of mankind. He is embodying the FATHER, SON, and HOLY GHOST. His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary work on the cross, His bodily resurrection from the dead, His exaltation to the right hand of GOD, are all proof. Man was created good and upright until the fall of man. Then came the salvation: man’s only hope of redemption through the blood of JESUS CHRIST the son of GOD. More aspects include baptism by water immersion, which is commanded. The Baptism is in the HOLY GHOST. Evidence is the Baptism in the HOLY GHOST and manifest by speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. Holy Communion is taken in remembrance of Jesus’ suffering and death. In addition, sanctification is separation from evil and a dedication to GOD. The Church is the body of CHRIST. Ordinances and doctrines are of the Scriptures. There is a cheerful giving of tithes and offerings.

Spring - Semester Open Session

January 28. 2023

7:00 PM

Spring Semester 2023

begins with an Emphasis on the assurance of a Solid, Spiritual Foundation laid properly. 

I am called by GOD to Teach, and in some cases remind the Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors,Teachers, and Believers, of the proper way to disciple followers, family and friends, how to be firmly rooted and grounded in CHRIST JESUS our LORD.

Most Believers, know less than 3 of the necessary Foundation Stones, and they don't know that there are more.

Many don't share there Faith because they feel inadequate and unprepared. 

Leaders in  CHRIST's Body, let's do better in discipling the flock GOD has entrusted to our care.

It will take time from our busy schedule but it is required.

JESUS said feed My Sheep if you Love ME. 

It is one thing to know and not do, another to not know, at all. Both have bad outcomes.

My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge and for rejecting knowledge (Matthew 7:24-27 and Hosea 4:6).

You are invited to come to the Open Session to get more details. 

Please call and reserve your seat.
