The Church is called to come to the "measure of the
stature of the fullness of Christ" Eph 4:13b. This "measure"
means that the Head and the body must become proportionate
to each other, "For the earnest expectation of the creature
waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God" Rom
Jesus, in totally fulfilling the will of His Father, became
a fully matured head. We, the body of Christ, must develop
into the maturity of the Head. As we approach the end of the
Church age, and the time for the manifestation of the corporate
Christ, there is an increasing urgency that each one of us
come to spiritual maturity.
This is the vision and calling of Pinecrest, which is being
fulfilled through the ministry of the Banner, the Bible School,
A ministry such as this must depend upon gifts that are received
through those who receive the Banner. Recently a letter was
sent concerning the need for Pinecrest to be free from the
burden of past indebtedness, and also to make known the urgent
need for an increase in income.
The ministry of Pinecrest is being made available to you
with the belief that you are one of those who desire to come
to spiritual maturity, and are being spiritually fed through
the ministry of the Banner, and of Pinecrest.
I prayerfully trust that you have favorably responded to
this letter and have already sent a gift to Pinecrest, and
that you will continue to give on a regular basis. If so,
thank you, and may our Lord abundantly bless you.
If not, your participation is very much needed, that Pinecrest
might continue to fulfill its calling and purpose. Your gift
will tremendously help, and will be prayerfully and carefully
used in the ministry of bringing the Body of Christ to the
completion of the Head in these last days.
I am greatly encouraged by the letters and comments that
I receive. Thank you, from my heart, for your part in this
