Pinecrest Bible Training Center

John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone.

Beginning in 2008 the vision and bible school that God so graciously gave Wade Taylor beginning in 1968 came to an abrupt end, falling into the ground and dying.-

We now wait for God to raise up and bring forth His seed of promise in another, that the vision fail not.

Summer 1992

Dear Friends of Pinecrest,

In Phil 3:10, Paul expresses his desire to fully know and serve His Lord. These are given in the progressive order in which they developed in his spiritual experience; "Knowledge, Power, and Fellowship."

Knowledge begins with information and ends in a personal experiential knowing. Power begins with imparted spiritual gifts and finds its fulfillment in a spiritual authority which develops through experience. Fellowship begins with the Lord meeting our needs, and matures with the Lord sharing His burdens and intentions with us.

The outworking of this progression can be observed within the Body of Christ. First, the "knowledge" of spiritual things was very important. Then the "power-gifts" became the center of interest. Now, many are seeking a deeper" fellowship" with the Lord, and in response, He is separating these unto Himself.

In each of these areas, there is an urgent need for further development. This will happen as we enter into a deeper personal experience, and cooperative fellowship with our Lord. Only then will we be able to have a part with Him in the birthing of the "new day" about to dawn out of the darkness of our present day.

The Banner seeks to direct those who are presently being "spiritually awakened" towards this deeper personal relationship with our Lord. It is not enough to know about Him. Nor is it enough to have gifts and ministries in operation through us. We are being called in this present hour to experientially know and walk with our Lord.

This Summer 1992 issue of the Banner is prayerfully sent to you that you might more successfully become one of these whom the Lord is calling into this higher place of identification with Himself, and with His purposes.

I wish to personally thank each of you who have given towards re-paying the loan for the printing press. If you have not given towards this need, please prayerfully consider doing so. A special letter is within this Banner concerning this.

Because most of the funds being received are going towards paying for the printing press, we are considerably behind in paying current bills. Also, soon a large order must be placed for paper to print future issues of the Banner. I sincerely ask your continued support in prayer, and with your gifts, which make it possible to continue this ministry.


In His Love,

Wade E Taylor
