A Different Type of Ministry

Do you feel like you have to pay to learn about God? “Buy my new book, DVD series, sermon”. “Join us at our next conference for only $$$”. Or “become a partner” by donating…”

“Don’t rob God…pay your tithe – [a horrible misuse of Malachi 3:6-12” (I had better leave that one alone [for NOW but will address it ASAP]). Are you tired of the gimmicks? “Holy water from the Jordan River”. “Dirt, sand or rocks from Jerusalem the holy city”. Stop and ask, what did Jesus do, did He use these types of tactics?

It is time for a Spiritual change. God’s word should be free of charge via any source. Sound Truth Ministry offers a different approach. If you are tired of tradition join us, follow us, learn from us! Worshiping and serving God has to be more than a habit or obligation. It is a way of life, a Spiritual life. You cannot join church or repeat a “sinners prayer” to be born into God’s family. The image above merely provides a summary of Sound Truth Ministry. I am creating this website and blog to give truth from God’s word.

Our focus is Salvation or being saved using the word of God to make God’s plan for those who become His children clear. We also help those who are called to teach learn how to teach others. What does this mean? Simply put we must learn to use the Spirit to teach us how to use the word to explain and understand the word. That is the only way we unlearn how to depend on someone else to help us understand the word. God has blessed me with the ability to make a lot of money but that would not fulfill His purpose. It would take away from the time I now have and use to study, document and teach. I will cover this in-depth at a later time.

Heal the sick, raise the dead to life again, heal those who have skin diseases, and force demons out of people. I give you these powers freely, so help other people freely. Matthew 10:8


Example: At some point in your life someone (more than likely one or both of your parents) taught you how to do basic things. How to eat, dress, groom, read, spell… Eventually, you no longer required them to help you.

You learned all you could from that teacher and went to other general teachers as you progressed. Eventually, you started learning from teachers who specialized in certain subjects, e.g., math, english, history, etc. Each taught you how to do things at a different level including how to study. At some point if you continued to learn you no longer required the teacher to guide you.

The question is not merely “what would Jesus do” we do not know the answer. What DID Jesus do? The short and simple truth is He taught His followers not only to understand but how to teach others… What did His apostles do? The bible does give the answers, read it, study it, get to know it and live by it!

Read Matthew 13:36-53; Mark 4:30-34; Luke 6:20-26; Acts 4:23-31; 1 Corinthians 1:10-3:23 {just for starters}

Unfortunately, very few spiritual teachers teach you how to study or how to use the Spirit to teach you. Have you ever wondered why?

Are You Ready For Change

image of studentPray about it if you need to. I did not intend to go there, but change is needed! I plan to create a post soon that will give scripture to explain what is being revealed here. Ultimately and I smile as I think of this, we will host a site that provides biblical insight into various topics to help us understand God’s way. I have gathered this information since 1981 and will finally get it hosted soon.

If you have questions or care to discuss this, email me using this form for a private message:

Have you learned how to study the Bible? Please leave a comment!

Bishop Pettiford

Welcome to a different type of ministry; we are primarily internet-based, we NEVER ask for MONEY for anything we do. We are faith-based and solely rely on God to give what we need. Your attention and time to check what we freely give is all we ask of you and that you be blessed by this ministry.
