A Handbook for New Christian Believers

Including: The Glossary of Christianese

Every group is a medley of unique individuals that share a common interest. As the group forms, meets, practices, and develops their identity and skills, certain words (like nicknames) are made up, that allow for the common identification of certain things that are important to the group. As a result, a group-specific jargon is developed.

In, for example, a surfing group, learning “Surferese” becomes part of the initiation process. Mastering the group-specific jargon provides the newer member a feeling of accomplishment and pride. When outsiders overhear you, they may now be able to identify you as “one of those Surfers.” Being identified provides you with confirmation that your efforts have not been in vain.

But Christianity is not a hobby or a club. Your eternal destiny is changed for the better by joining and continuing. For this reason, at this critical juncture, no new believer in Christ should be driven away or alienated by some human-made jargon. So, in A Handbook for New Christian Believers: Including the Glossary of Christianese,, the new believer is supplied with a listing of most of the jargon words and their detailed definitions.

This may be the first time such a listing with definitions has been provided, so please take advantage and familiarize yourself with this handbook and the glossary. You will acquire the knowledge you need to quickly enable and ease the process of (1) getting to know your God and Savior, Jesus Christ, and (2) fitting in with the members of your church.

This book is written to glorify God and to help people walk closer to the Lord and become Kingdom laborers. It gives insight about practical reasons for implementing our Christian faith in our day-to-day lives. The book is written for all levels of faith from non-believers to mature Christians. It looks at why our American culture has moved from a God-fearing nation to a secular one. It also discusses relevant topics and issues in the church, in our culture, and in individual lives. The primary focus is helping Christians to see things from Gods perspective, to walk closer to the Lord, and to have an active faith. It will also help readers understand that God has a relationship with nations as well as individuals. We must pray, read, and meditate on Gods ways in the Holy Bible to develop a more personal and intimate relationship with the Lord.

Churchin’ Ain’t Easy

What All Christians Need to Know But Few Take the Time to Share!

People say, “Come to Jesus, and everything will be all right.” Although this is true, there is a wide gap between conversion and everything being “all right.” As a new Christian, your old friends may think you’ve changed too much, while your new church friends may think you haven’t changed enough. You’re supposed to handle things in view of Christ, but how do many of His teachings translate to modern life? And then there are the difficulties involved in finding a church. CHURCHIN’ AIN’T EASY is a guidebook for the new Christian, written by Jennifer Gilbert, an experienced preacher, teacher, and prophet who’s not afraid to tell it like it is. Gilbert includes her own personal struggles to encourage you and make her lessons applicable to your daily life as you walk the Christian path. She helps you navigate between your life’s destruction and your life’s destiny by answering questions like, “What am I supposed to do now?,” “Why so many churches?,” and more. The most important foundational truth Gilbert wishes to share with the new believer is the need to have a relationship with Christ instead of a relationship with religion. A new believer needs to have a supportive church that feels like home—especially as you struggle to survive the transition in your lifestyle. Develop your walk with Christ in order to become a successful and balanced Christian, filled with the Lord’s peace, love, and understanding.

"Walk with Me" is an autobiography of author Mark Lynch's life, filled with many of his extraordinary experiences, struggles, tragedies, and blessings. Mark is no stranger to death, and he reveals what happened in two near-death experiences and his visit to paradise in the afterlife. Mark shares intimately of his confrontation with God and how this confrontation sparked a personal relationship with the Lord that not only changed Mark's life but also the lives of his family, friends, and acquaintances. This book offers hope for those facing their own heartaches. The reality of life is but a fading illusion. Every second of every day brings us closer to our death. The circumstances and people that enter our lives shape and mold us into who we are to become. There is a reason you are alive here on Earth. We are all not here by accident. There is also more to coincidences than you may realize. Whether you choose to believe it or not, you are here for a purpose. There is a reason for everything that happens in life, even when things do not seem to make sense. Walk with me, and I will touch your emotions as I reveal my inner self and take you through my life. My life is of an ordinary man who has survived despite extraordinary circumstances. There is life beyond death, as I have been there... twice. So let me show you the truth. Walk with me as I reveal the keys to a world you may never have known existed. Let me you show the truth, reveal the lies, and expose the myths.

Nigeria's Christian Revolution

Nigeria has become the area of one of the most remarkable religious movements of recent times, reflecting the shift in the global center of Christianity from the North to the South. This book tells the story of one sector of this movement from its roots in the Nigerian civil war to the turn of the new millennium. It describes a revival that occurred among the Igbo people of Eastern Nigeria, and the new Pentecostal churches it generated, and documents the changes that have occurred as the movement has responded to global flows and local demands. As such, it explores the nature of revivalist and Pentecostal experience, but does so against the backdrop of local socio-political and economic developments, such as decolonization and civil war, as well broader processes, such as modernization and globalization.
