For over eighty years the rightly divided Word of God taught and lived in our ministry has made it possible for people around the world to live victoriously. That’s a reason to celebrate! Our united worldwide focus during this Eightieth Anniversary year is Living Victoriously Today.
Forty years ago, The Way International Headquarters hosted Living Victoriously, an inspiring class on the Bible, taught by our Founding President, Dr. Victor Paul Wierwille. During this new ministry year, the planned study of topics from that class will help each of us better understand what it means for a believer to live victoriously today and to help others do the same.
We are excited to have II Corinthians 2:14 as our theme verse.
II Corinthians 2:14:
Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.
Our thankfulness to God for all He accomplished for us in Christ is vital to our living victoriously today. And victory can be ours as we remember our rights as the sons and daughters of God who believe to walk in all the power He has given to us. Our lives are a mighty witness in the world when we take believing action on God’s promises and manifest His love and power.
On our beautiful theme poster, the sun rises on a new day, lighting up the rural Ohio countryside where there stands a mighty white oak tree. The Way Tree symbolism reminds us of the different aspects of the oak tree. It grows from a small acorn seed. The acorn is filled with all the potential to develop into full maturity and produce fruit of its own. When planted in optimal conditions, over time the acorn grows from stage to stage, providing shade, strength, and beauty for future generations.
Each part of the tree is fed by the process of photosynthesis as sunlight shines on the leaves. Enriched by good soil, life-giving water rises from the root system to all of the tree’s parts. With its roots spread deep in the good ground of God’s Word and with God, Who is Light, shining brightly upon it, The Way Tree stands and weathers the storms of life, triumphant.
We are thankful to our God for His goodness to us in Christ. Together we stand for Him—strong and triumphant like the mighty oak. As we do, we manifest the sweet savor of the knowledge of Christ in every place, worldwide. Those who hear us and believe on him will have life more than abundant and power for victorious living.
