Divine Word International Ministries began as a small Prayer group (Divine Prayer Line) on a free conference line and has grown in a very short time to a full-fledged Ministry.
Established by Bishop Dr. Kofi Adonteng-Boateng, The General Overseer of Divine Word International Ministries with the sole aim of bringing together Christians around the world under the banner of receiving the salvation of Jesus Christ. Within a few years of its existence, lots of souls have been won, burdens broken, and the sick healed. The Ministry is impacting thousands of lives. God has given Bishop Dr. Kofi a big vision: to Love, Live and Lead Like Christ. A vision where families are strong units, founded in the Word of God, and raising men and women to be people of integrity, honor and discipline. A vision where communities work together to help the less fortunate so that everyone is not only employed but empowered to be contributing members of society around the world. A vision where corporations and governments turn to men and women of Christian faith for guidance, direction and leadership in business and governmental affairs. God continues to bring people to Divine Word who are both skilled and passionate about the Kingdom of God to help make this vision a reality.
Our history has been rich, but our future will be richer. We hope you will be a part of it.
What We Believe
The Scriptures: We believe that the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God and is inerrant in the original writings. The Bible being the revealed Word of God is the ground and foundation from which all claims of truth shall be substantiated. The Word of God is alive and quick! Through God’s sovereign hand, the Scriptures have been preserved and are the supreme and final authority. (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21; Hebrews 4:12)
God: We believe that there is only one true and living God, existing in three persons — Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each is a distinct Person, but they are all of one essence; they all have the same nature, perfection and attributes, and each is worthy of precisely the same worship, confidence and obedience. (Genesis 1:1-3, 26; Matthew 3:16,17; John 1:1,14, 10:30, 14:26, 15:26; Matthew 28:19)
Jesus Christ: We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary; that he shed His blood on Calvary in our place, was buried, rose again and ascended to the Father, according to the Scriptures. (Luke 1:26-33, 22:20, 24:46
Holy Spirit: We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity — God — and coexistent with the Father and the Son. The Holy Spirit is the Chief Agent in the regeneration of the soul, the Chief Convictor of sin and the Chief Comforter of the believer. Simultaneous with regeneration, the Holy Spirit baptizes the believer into the body of Christ, permanently indwells him and seals him in salvation for all eternity. The Holy Spirit is the giver of spiritual gifts to the believer. (John 16:1-13; Acts 5:3-4; Titus 3:5; Matthew 3:11; Ephesians 1:13-14; I Corinthians 12:1-11)
Man: We believe that man is the direct creation of God — body, soul and spirit. Therefore, man is not in any way a result of evolution but is made in God’s image. The sin and fall of Adam resulted in the fall of creation and mankind, both physically and spiritually. (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:10, 5:12, 8:18-23)
Salvation: We believe that all who, in faith, receive the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior are born again by the Holy Spirit and thus become the children of God. Salvation involves redemption, regeneration, sanctification and glorification. (Ephesians 1:7; Romans 10:9-10, 5:7-11; Colossians 1:13-14, 21-22; John 17:16-22; II Corinthians 5:17; I Corinthians 6:19)
Eternal Security: We believe that salvation is not only a gift from God but is sustained by Him as well. Salvation is wholly of the Lord, apart from the works of man. The Holy Spirit permanently indwells the believer and seals him in salvation for all eternity. Therefore, the believer shall be kept by the power of God through faith. (John 3:16, 10:27-29, 14:16-17, 26; Ephesians 1:13; 2:8-9; Philippians 1:6; I Peter 1:5; Jude 24-25
