The Man in White Delivers from Darkness

“Who is this one who takes away sin?



God is moving in such powerful ways in the Middle East, stopping at nothing to reach people with His love and truth. We consider it a privilege to share what God is doing through simple, obedient followers of Christ in these dark regions.

Naghma had been depressed for over four years when she met one of our disciple makers. She never wanted to open up and talk to anyone, but she felt so safe and comfortable with this disciple maker that, surprisingly, she opened up quite easily. Naghma shared how she was seeing intensely dark images in her room and being troubled spiritually. She felt these dark things that would come to her were unbelievable, so she kept it to herself. Even her family did not know what was going on with her. Finally, comfortable enough to share, our disciple maker was able to pray for Naghma and for these dark things to go away.

During a visit with our disciple maker, Naghma confided that someone else had visited her—a Man in White. She thought perhaps he was a prophet, but she definitely knew He was not evil like the other things that had been afflicting her. Naghma described when this Man in White came to her, He took her heart and blew on it and it became white. He then put her heart back in her, causing her face to shine. From this time on, the evil spirits stopped coming into Naghma’s room and tormenting her. And she began to regularly ask questions and pray with this disciple maker.

Throughout these weeks of meeting together, the disciple maker had been sharing Bible passages with Naghma. On the particular week that she had the visitation of the Man in White, the Bible passage was Isaiah 53.

“But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.”

— Isaiah 53:5

When Naghma read this passage, she was consumed by every detail. Reading it over and over, she came back to the disciple maker with many questions asking, “Who is this one who takes away sin?” The disciple maker directed her to pray and ask God for her answer and continued to give her more Bible passages.

Meanwhile, all of Naghma’s family is noticing changes in her. She is happy and no longer depressed. They are inquiring about this new friend of hers and the stories she is reading. As a result, Naghma’s mother and sisters have begun meeting together to read these Bible passages. Now, the whole family is open and excited to hear more.

We believe the Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are inspired by God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:15-17, 1 Peter 1:21)

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent who has revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Luke 3:22)

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father where He intercedes for us, in His present rule as Head of the Church, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:31)

We believe in the creation of mankind in God’s image, and the fall of man, resulting in universal guilt and total depravity; and the necessity, therefore, of redemption and restoration; that all men and women are lost spiritually and face the judgment of God, that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ is necessary for regeneration by the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 2:17)

We believe salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life. (Luke 24:47, John 3:3)

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life in the presence of our Lord, and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation and eternal punishment. (Matthew 25:46, Mark 9:43-48)

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church, which has the duty to preach the Gospel to every person. (Ephesians 1:22-23, Ephesians 2:22)

We believe that we must dedicate ourselves to prayer, to the service of our Lord, to His authority over our lives, and to the ministry of teaching, preaching, the prophetic, the apostolic, and evangelism. (Ephesians 4:11-13)

We believe in upholding the ordinances of the church of water baptism and holy communion.

The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded by the Scriptures. All who repent and believe in Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized. Thus, they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:16, Acts 10:47,48, Romans 6:4)

The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements—bread and the fruit of the vine—, is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:4), a memorial of His suffering and death (1 Corinthians 11:26), and a prophecy of His second coming (1 Corinthians 11:26), and is enjoined on all believers “till He comes!”
