JOHN 21: 15-17
Important: Please read this first
It is without a doubt that smartphones are a major part of our lives today. People are increasingly having majority of their lives on mobile. Today we see the constant use of electronics in places of worship. People can easily read bibles on buses, trains, while waiting outside, walking, airplane, all on their cell phones. In 2018 we started engaging in outdoor evangelism where we preach the gospel to passersby, many were giving their lives to Christ and the Church of Christ were growing daily. We had a problem though, for some people who and became Christians and moved away from the town we were, they had no bible or anyone to help them explain and understand the scriptures. It is one thing to read the bible, it is another thing to have a solid understanding of what its saying. This is where FTS.Bible comes in, for the many people around the world in far countries, we are able to teach them the bible and help them explain it to them through our app. This is important for the growth of any Christian.
Our goal for FTS.Bible is to raise disciples for Christ which we believe will in turn create a better world for everyone to live in
FTS.Bible is not only limited to helping our users grow in their Christian walk by means of reading the bible alone. We have different outlets that could help individuals grow in the faith all via the app. Podcast, sermons, worship songs, praise song, rap music and more.
