Who We Are

Our Mandate

The mandate of Equip 4 Success is to teach and train people according to the principles of God’s Word, so that they are equipped to succeed in their everyday lives.

…for the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ…

Ephesians 4:12,13 (NKJ)

 

To equip defined:
‘to provide with abilities, understanding’ (Collins English Dictionary)

Success defined:
‘favourable outcome, happiness, prosperity, triumph’ (Collins Thesaurus)

Therefore, Equip 4 Success aims to provide people with abilities and understanding from God’s Word, so that they can experience happiness, prosperity, triumph and a favourable outcome in every area of their lives.

 

This is God’s plan for us as Christians:

Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ… (NKJ)

I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. (NKJ)

“…For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (NIV)

Psalm 35:27:
Let the Lord be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant. (NKJ)
