Author Ken Mbugua on the need for this resource. Also, see written interview


The gospel is the church’s most precious gift to cherish, protect, and pass on. If even an angel preaches a gospel contrary to God’s word, the Apostle Paul says he is cursed. We must never stop checking what we believe and preach asking the question: Is it the gospel that God has revealed to us in the Bible? There is a false gospel sweeping Africa and the world. It is a dangerous lie wrapped in a covering of religion. 

We are partnering with African and North American authors and publishers to create a resource that will be distributed for free throughout the continent of Africa and beyond. Our goal is to provide a tool for pastors, leadership trainers, and church planters for the purpose of shining the light of biblical truth upon the widespread deception of prosperity theology. Our prayer is that God’s people will come to know and love the true gospel more deeply.

In Prosperity? Finding the True Gospel, African pastors Michael Otieno Maura, Ken Mbugua, Conrad Mbewe are joined by Wayne Grudem and John Piper in pointing pastors and Christians beyond the deceptions of prosperity theology to the true gospel of Jesus Christ.

Once complete, this resource will be distributed for free throughout the continent of Africa and beyond. Also once complete, all donors will receive an email with a link to download a free ebook version.

While the majority of the world speaks and communicates in local languages, globalization has created one major stream of communication—Global English. It is the official language of 53 nations (one-fourth of the world), and it is estimated that another billion people speak it as their second language. Nearly 1,742,600,000 are able to access, read, and comprehend resources in the English language. That’s more than 1 out of 5 people in the world!

While we continue to pursue translation into key languages, many times it is more cost effective to make English resources available to pastors, seminaries, and those who train church leaders. Global English is vital for equipping Christian leaders with selected biblical works.
