WELCOME TO THE PROVEN WORD MINISTRIES, INC. WEBSITE!
Here at PROVEN WORD MINISTRIES, INC., we are committed to serving God and obeying His Word, as it is written! We are hoping that you are an avid Bible reader...
THIS IS NOT ABOUT DENOMINATIONS OR CHANGING WHICH CHURCH YOU GO TO! IT IS ABOUT THE TRUTH!
The purpose of this ministry is to present the facts as it pertains to salvation through baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (Acts 2:38) ...which should be emplemented in every church... Are we not all commanded to obey HIS Will and HIS Word? When we disobey this command we bring the Word to no effect. We become blind leaders of the blind!... I thank God that the Apostles not only obeyed His command, but left this record as a witness to all who will read and obey it!
Why we should be Baptized in Jesus’ Name
(This is Scriptural)
What Jesus said: –
Matthew 28:18. And Jesus came and spake unto them, "All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you
Note: He didn't say repeat this... He said do this! No room for private interpretation... The command is solid!... It has never changed
Luke 24:46. :And said unto them, 'Thus it is written and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day;
47. And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
48. And ye are witnesses of these things.
49. And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until be endued with power from high.' ”
Who He said it to!:-
Matthew 28:16 "Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them."
How they obeyed:
By Peter –
Acts 2.38 “Then Peter said unto them, ‘Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
39. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.’”
Evidenced by –
Acts 4.12 – “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (See Philippians 2:9 – 11)
Followed by signs and wonders –
Acts 2:43 And fear came upon every soul; and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.

Testimony 22:4-16 (from Acts 9:18) Jerusalem
John 1:1, 14 – “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” - “And the Word was made (or became) flesh, and dwelt among us…”
Matthew 1:23, 25 – (All capital letters Indicate prophecy) “BEHOLD, A VIRGIN SHALL BE WITH CHILD, AND BRING FORTH A SON, AND THEY SHALL CALL HIS NAME IMMANUEL, which being interpreted is, God with us.”
Luke 1:31 – “And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS”.
Matt. 28.19 – “Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them IN THE NAME of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost”.
I have a question for you; (St. John 1:1-14) If “the Word was with God, and the Word was God”, and “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” (St. Matt 1:18-25, St. Luke 1:26-31) and an angel was sent BY God to establish that that flesh’s name “shall be called Jesus”, doesn’t that make Isaiah 45:18-23, and Phil. 2:9-11 clear? God Himself has chosen this name by which, He brings the access to salvation to the world (or more clearly, to those that believe on His Name!).
2 Cor. 5:19 – “To wit, that GOD WAS IN CHRIST, reconciling the world unto Himself…”
1 Tim. 3:16 – “And without controversy, great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.”
2 Chron. 7:14 – “If my people, which are called by MY NAME, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek MY FACE, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
We invite you to become a member of the true body of Christ (Not changing church homes, but obeying the Doctrine of Jesus Christ to the fullest) - allowing God Himself to give you your life/ministry assignment through the Holy Ghost.
