"I am the good shepherd, and I know My own and My own know Me, even as the Father knows Me and I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. I have other sheep, which are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will hear My voice; and they will become one flock with one shepherd." -Jesus John 10: 14-16
Disclaimer: We have included a list of teachers and pastors that have helped our walk and relationship with Jesus. We ask that you be like a Berean and check what you hear from these Pastors and teachers against the Word of God. Teachers that are helpful for us, may not be for you. God may lead you to others. Pastors and teachers are still human, and make mistakes, however Jesus never will. God has gifted you discernment to make sure that you are not deceived or lead astray. Jesus is the final authority over all and the Holy Spirit is your #1 teacher. When you are in the Word, continually pray and ask Jesus for guidance. He will lead you to teachers that are biblically sound and aren't wolves in sheep clothing. The following list are teachers we have found are very serious about correct teaching and God's Word.
