The direct mission of Grace Bible Church Pakistan is to serve a flock of Christians in Arifwala, Pakistan. 

Pastor Faisal John provides face to face teaching (Nov-Apr), and teaches using the Internet (May-Oct).

The ministry also sends teams of two men to the villages to serve Christian families living in remote areas.

Grace Academy English Medium School educates over 140 extremely poor children as a grace ministry. 

  GBC Pakistan also has their 3:16 Children's Home for orphans.

When in the USA, Pastor Faisal and his wife Carrie work with young people at various youth camps - including ours.

Finally, they distribute printed Biblical material in the Urdu language.

Who you are ultimately determines how you will think, and what your mind will dwell on.

If you are in the flesh (unbeliever), you will produce fruit for death.

If you are in the Spirit (believer), you will produce fruit for God.

ROM 7:4-6

Your way of thinking, your outlook, REVEALS who you are. It does not determine who you are.

ROM 8:5

This verse CLEARLY says that who you are determines what you will set your mind on.

ROM 8:7-8

Those who are in the flesh CANNOT please God. They are INCAPABLE!

Who you are (in the flesh or in the Spirit) determines your outlook; your outlook drives your actions.

Can how you think change …. whether or not you are a child of God?

…the fact that God has forgiven you of all your sins?

…the fact that you are in Christ?

…the fact that you are beloved by God?

…the fact that you are a member of the body of Christ?

…who you are in terms of one possessing eternal life?

Can you think yourself in or out of the love of God?

Can your thoughts stop you from being the object of God’s constant care and amazing grace?

Can you do some thinking that would mean you were no longer God’s workmanship?

Can you think your way in or out of having the Spirit indwell you?

Can your thought process take you from being a new creation back to being an old creation?

Can how you think put you back under the Law?

Can how you think cause your old man to no longer be crucified with Christ?

ROM 8:5

What are the “things of the Spirit” that believers set our minds on?
