Into Thy Word Ministries is about Equipping Church Leaders and Pastors to better understand and apply the Bible. 
This is crucial to building a personal relationship with Christ and a healthy Church for Christ's Glory. Many pastors are inadequately equipped or have lost their focus. ITW seeks to encourage and equip pastors around the world. You can partner with us, too!

The incarnation simply means God came to be a man. He was fully man while remaining fully God. That way He could identify with our plight in life. As He lived a normal human existence for over 30 years, He experienced all that we experienced...

The Christmas Story

Living the Christmas Spirit All Year Long

When someone says the word "Christmas," what comes to your mind? Christmas Themes from Philippians
Are you so caught up in the events and planning of Christmas that you have forgotten the "Christ" and the "mass," which means we are to worship and venerate Him? Most of us do forget, perhaps not intentionally, because of all our busyness and neglect.

The Responsibility of the Church

It all comes down to this point: God's call for the Church versus ours.
Who is running "your" show and who gets the glory? Or better put, whose show is it and what are you showing? Your attitude and motivation come from what you favor and prefer and these ideas come from a sense of desires and pride that in turn run the church. Or, we can manage "our" church from a sense of call and responsibility as the stewards of His Church.
What Type of Foundation Does Your Church Have?

It is our VISION and call, and commitment to point the church back onto the path of making disciples. It is our passion and directive to lead Christians away from our false perceptions and into His way.

Church Growth Tip and Prayer of the Week

Ideas to consider: (Romans 12:18; 14:18-19; Ephesians 4:3; Hebrews 12:14)

Organize a prayer base in your church. See our Prayer Channel for details. See the article in our prayer channel,Leading the Church to be People of Prayer. (John 13:34-35; 20:19-23; Romans 12:1-21)

Pray that your Church leaders and Pastors families will be cared for and respected and receive good consideration, so they can grow too, as they are usually misunderstood, under-appreciated, ignored or overworked. Pray that all the staff be committed to their families with authentic love and care, that they will be strong and learn in the midst of trials, that their homes are a refuge and haven of rest and they are not condescending or withdrawing from their own families (Psalm 91:9-15; Phil. 4:19; 1 Peter 2:23).
