We are Builder of the Spirit, a ministry dedicated to world outreach and the proclamation of an uplifting Word

 

We’re privileged to be servants

We’re a private charity dedicated to distributing books and Bibles to those in need across the globe, entirely free of charge.

At Builder of the Spirit, we are dedicated to spreading hope and spiritual growth across the globe.

As a ministry focused on world outreach, our mission is to distribute free books and Bibles to those in need, embodying our belief that spiritual resources can transform lives. We invite individuals, groups, and churches to support us in this cause, whether through donations, contributing gently-used Christian materials, or partnering with us financially. Together, we aim to fulfill our mission: The Word in Every Hand.

Learn more about our efforts, and how you can be a part of our mission.

Many need our help! Those less fortunate are given a means of material hope to enrich life, but it can’t happen without you.

Please … consider donation that we may send a Blessing to others. If you aren’t able to contribute by monetary means, please send us those gently-used Christian books or Bibles that aren’t in use – we will get them to those who hunger for hope.

Groups, individuals, and churches are always encouraged to partner with us and can do so for as little as a dollar a month. Several support us as a part of their missions budget, for that’s what we really are is a missions organization. Many churches also have collection boxes in their lobbies to gather used material – a few like to call it an “On-going Bible drive.”

Builder of the Spirit has accounts with many of the large Bible publishers and can buy new books direct from them, by-passing the mark-up of the middleman. The ministry can get Bibles in over a hundred different languages.

Please … consider those in need. Get involved! You can bless someone and be a partner in the cause. Dust off those used materials as well – give them – be a Builder Of The Spirit yourself for the task is great.

What We Believe

The Bible to be the inspired Word of God.

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His future return to this earth in power and glory to rule over the nations.

In the Blessed Hope – the rapture of the Church at Christ’s coming. The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ.

Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation. The baptism in the Holy Spirit according to the book of Acts. In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation.

Is Jesus still interested in us?

What does it mean to have a personal relationship with Christ, and in what way does it impact our lives? And how does someone go about making that kind of commitment? Those are good questions, and typical of someone who understands the significance of Jesus. Here is some information to help answer these and other questions you may have about Jesus.

Because of Jesus’ resurrection, his followers do not honor a dead Builder.

They have a personal relationship with him. Jesus Christ lives today and faithfully enriches the lives of all those who trust and obey Him. Throughout the centuries multitudes have acknowledged Christ. There is a vacuum in the heart of every man which only God can fill through his Son Jesus Christ.

You can!

Because of God’s deep love for you, he has already made all the necessary arrangements. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, you can enjoy a personal relationship. Jesus made it possible to bridge the gap which separates us from God. The following four principles will help you discover how to know Jesus personally and experience the abundant life he promised.

God LOVES you and created you to know Him personally.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

John 17:3 “Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.”

What prevents us from knowing God personally?

Man is SINFUL and SEPARATED from God, so we cannot know Him personally or experience His love.

Romans 6:23 “The wages of sin is death.” [Spiritual separation from God]

Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

Romans 8:6-8 “The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace; the sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please God.” A great gap separates man from God. Man is continually trying to reach God and establish a personal relationship with Him through human efforts, such as living a good life, philosophy, or religion. But he inevitably fails. The third principle explains the only way to bridge that gap.

Jesus Christ is God’s ONLY provision for man’s sin. Through him alone we can know God personally and experience God’s love.

Romans 5:8 “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

1 Corinthians 15:3-6 “Christ died for our sins… he was buried… he was raised on the third day according to the scriptures… he appeared to Peter, then to the twelve. After that he appeared to more than five hundred…”

John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’ ” God has bridged the gap that separates us from Him by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross in our place to pay the penalty for our sins.
But it is not enough just to know these truths.

We must individually RECEIVE Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior; then we can know God personally and experience His love.

John 1:12 “As many as received him, to them he gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in his name.”

Ephesians 2:8-9 “For it is by grace that you have been saved, through faith. This does not depend on anything you have achieved, it is the free gift of God; and because it is not earned no one can boast about it.”

Receiving Christ involves turning to God from self (a spirit of repentance) and trusting Christ to come into our lives to forgive us of our sins and make us what he wants us to be. Just to agree intellectually that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that he died on the cross for our sins is not enough. Nor is it enough to have an emotional experience. We receive Jesus Christ by faith, as an act of our will.

Jesus Christ is waiting for an invitation to come in to your life. In fact, he said, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in!” (Revelation 3:20)

Perhaps you can sense Christ knocking at the door of your heart.

You can invite him in by faith right now. God knows your heart so it doesn’t matter exactly what words you use, but here’s a suggested prayer:

Jesus, I want to know You! You died on the cross for me, a sinner. Forgive me for the things that I’ve done, I’m sorry! I open the door of my heart and ask You to come into my life. Be my Lord and my Savior! I choose to serve You and live my life as a reflection of You, giving me eternal life. Mould me and shape me into the person You want me to be. AMEN

If this prayer expresses the desire of your heart, pray it right now and Jesus Christ will come into your life just as he has promised. Once you invite Christ into your life, he promises to never leave you.

Hebrews 13:5 “God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.'” To know God personally is the greatest decision you will ever make. If you’ve just asked Jesus Christ into your life, tell us about it. We would love to hear from you.

"I finished reading War of the Heart yesterday. I really enjoyed the book. I have always been captivated with movies/stories/video games that show the relationships of people in those situations. Shows like MASH and the Call Of Duty game pull me in and take hold. I especially liked how Jonathan was rewarded for his faithfulness."

"War of the Heart is a great novel. I couldn’t put it down! It was factual, and bought back a lot of memories. I love the way the power of prayer was illustrated. It showed me that anyone can overcome hard times with prayer and perseverance. I served with many guys who didn’t care about God, but when bombs were falling on us, though, those same men would be among the first with their prayers to saved."

Society’s Loss Of Respect

Not long ago, I had a lengthy conversation with a state trooper.  He was eating lunch with my wife and I and he had some interesting things to say. In spite of my clever efforts to reveal his name he chose not to divulge it, nor did he want to go on the record or be quoted - He jokingly reiterated that several times. For some time, I’ve been longing to write about the lack of respect plaguing our nation and the good trooper was an inspirational springboard. The 34-year-old trooper, an 11-year veteran, said he’s seen a shift in our culture during his career.  He said respect in society has...

Old Habits Entertain Reciprocal Thoughts

I’ve been fortunate to have seen many things and done far more in life.  We all have talents, if we dare peer within.  Of the many attributes that I lay hold, I’m proud to say I’m a songwriter - a lyricist.  Life’s precious indeed, yet, how boring it would be without music.  Who doesn’t like a good tune anyway? Although I can’t compose the music to a song, I am intrigued by all the facets that make up a great tune.  However, lyrics are an ever glow and a shooting star for me.  Although some songs are instrumentals, with no words, others have a tendency to have diminished meaning with their...

Fundamentally Transforming America

The President of the United States entertained a foreign dignitary from Vietnam in the White House some time back.  While doing so, the camera lenses were clicking when Mr. Obama began speaking about the former communist dictator of Vietnam Ho Chi Minh.  The President spoke of a letter Minh wrote to Harry Truman.  Then Mr. Obama went on to compare the former Vietnam Marxist, who had over half-a-million Vietnamese murdered to gain power, to Thomas Jefferson and the founding fathers of America. I’m sure most of the relatives of the 60,000 Americans who gave their lives in the Vietnam War...
