The Mission of the Garden School of Kingdom Ministry is to train, equip, and develop passionate disciples of Jesus Christ who, through Christ-like character and a kingdom lifestyle, demonstrate the healing love of the Father and His transforming power on earth,
as it is in Heaven.
GSKM is passionately committed to training individuals who filled with knowledge and understanding of Scripture and equally are filled with the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to display his fruit and gifts. We recognize that studying the Bible and learning how to live it out are not quite the same. Understanding Scripture is important to know what God has said and done in order for us to know what his expectations are for Godly living in our current times. We also believe it is important to have a safe environment to “DO” or "PRACTICE" Godly living especially when it comes to being like Jesus. We want to know the Word as well as live the Word of God for this generation. We believe every instruction of Scripture comes with an invitation for an intimate encounter with the Spirit of God who inspired it.
Accordingly, our focus and primary objectives for the 1st year Course are:
(1) To develop greater intimacy and relationship with God as Father as we realize and receive the fullness of His great love, grace and favor.
(2) To better understand and know our identity and inheritance in Jesus Christ as our hearts and minds are being transformed into His very likeness.
(3) To develop a lifestyle centered upon worship, the Word, and revival culture where experiencing God’s presence is a normal happening within everyday situations and occurrences of life. The phrase we use as we teach this lifestyle is to be "naturally supernatural" through expressing God's tangible love through the power of the Holy Spirit.
The emphasis in the classroom will be a balance between worship, study, lecture, discussion, small groups, in-class exercises, impartation and outreaches. Below is a topic list and does not represent the full course content. We leave room for the Holy Spirit to direct as He determines.
