Just the Word is a specialized teaching and learning ministry to the body of Christ. We seek to fulfill just one of the five purposes of the church: maturity. Our goal is not to supplant, substitute, or circumvent the work and mission of the local church, but to supplement it. We view ourselves as a help and aid to the local church. In so doing, we transcend all artificial barriers of race, gender, nationality, ethnicity, religion, denomination, and the like. We provide instruction for living from the Word of God, which we recognize exclusively to be the Bible. We are not trying to build a church, but to build up THE church, the body of Christ, until we all come into maturity and the fullness of the measure of the stature of Christ.
Our niche – people who just want the word because they are: new to the faith, in between churches, tired of drama, curious about the Christian message, burned out, or angry and out of fellowship with church people.
Our purpose – provide instruction for living from the Word of God.
Our mission – restore sensible Christianity, via practical biblical teaching, to the body of Christ.
About Earl Middleton
Although I loved my parishioners I often felt awkward in a church setting so I quit the pastorate after 22 years. I’m done with religion. But not with God. After earning a M.Div. degree from Princeton Theological Seminary I was voted out of two pastorates because I’ve never gotten along with church boards and trampled over their stuffy traditions at every opportunity. I love being alone in crowds, whether speaking to a large audience or blending in among a bunch of strangers. That’s where I was, driving alone on a crowded street, when I heard the audible voice of God tell me to WRITE! Today I’m the author of a growing catalog of fiction and non-fiction titles, many of them illustrating the power of God’s G.R.A.C.E. to heal and restore souls damaged by any form of parental rejection, abandonment, abuse, or neglect.
