Heart of an Apostle

Front Cover
Morgan James Publishing, 2007 M10 1 - 132 pages
This is an important book written by Pete Beck Jr. for the perilous times in which we Christians find ourselves. The maturing of the church of the Lord Jesus Christ is what is happening and is absolutely paramount to the Holy Spirit. It will not happen without mature and spiritual leaders. He wants to make it a truly apostolic church going forward with apostolic doctrine to win the nations. Apostles in the other five-fold ministry gifts, prophets, evangelistics, pastors and teachers are being raised up as never before across the world. They are being raised up as a team. The Bible is clear that satan will attempt to produce false apostles to weaken or mislead the church. Many do not seem to even understand the principles of God laid out in the Scriptures. Ambition and a love for money and recognition dominate some who claim to be apostles. When speaking to the church at Ephesus, the risen Christ commended them for discerning those who were true apostles and rejecting those who proved false.

In 1994 I resigned the church pastorate and pursued full time traveling ministry to many churches and their pastors. In 1995, with Neil Silverberg, I founded Master Builders Fellowship, a fellowship of pastors and leaders dedicated to the purpose of strengthening churches and extending the Kingdom of God.
