14 Ministry Formation
“The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ.” (1 Corinthians 12:12)
The Gospel has an effective power to penetrate every sphere of human life. It transforms not only individuals but also the whole world where they live. Olivet Assembly of USA launched stations to connect and network diverse endeavors expressed in various Christian organizations and fellowships.
