MISSION

The mission of Trinity Fellowship International is to find the rejected, disconnected and discarded parts of the Lord's Church and help heal, sort and reassemble according to the teachings of our Lord and Apostles of His New Testament Church (I Cor.1:17-31; Eph.4:1-16; John.17).

The mission also includes the development of House Church ministries. House Church ministries are not satellite Bible study groups of a larger monolithic theater mega church program. House Churches are autonomous physically, but spiritually share in the beautiful unity of Christ (Eph. 4:11-16 and John 17).

The original impact of the Early Church should be carefully studied and emulated. If we cannot surpass the Early Church in effectiveness and power, then we should try to copy The Early Church. We should not seek to deviate from the original productive pattern given under the anointing and guidance of the Holy Spirit to the Apostles.

I.                   Vision:

To enable any disciple of Jesus Christ to receive a balanced education in the theology of God's Truth in Love, Holiness and Power in one year. And in the second year to encourage the development of Christian Maturity for Ministry to train others also.

II.                Location:

The seminary will be basically centered at Pilgrims' Inn Abbey, (Hale Maluhia) www.pilgrims-inn.com we are in the process of confirming the three years of classes and curriculum. The seminary will be a subsidiary of Trinity Fellowship International and soon will also have a book store, "Acts 29 Book Store", in order to make text books available for our students at the lowest possible cost..

III.             Study Plan:

Students will receive guided study for the basic theology of each course.
Students will then have an interactive discussion on what was learned each week.
Students will submit a two page, double spaced paper covering each chapter.
 
Pass or fail will be posted each week as per instructor's evaluation. An evaluation for previous ministry experience may also be accepted for equivalent subjects.
Other class and study options may be included at the discretion of the Dean.
