While each message that we receive is as unique as the people who write them, there are many questions that are
frequently asked. Before emailing us, please take the time to see if your question is answered below. Due to the
amount of mail, we are unable to reply to questions that have already been covered.
If you belong to an evangelical christian church which holds to the doctrines of the Evangelical Alliance, and wish to
use some of our material in your church magazine, you can use 600 words without needing any written permission from
ByFaith Media; but it must never be sold or used for commercial gain. Also, you may use 600 words in your book without needing any written permission.
In every case, the ByFaith website must be credited
with the source and the link (www.byfaith.co.uk) must also be included. The complete Discipleship
Course can also be printed and used for free in your youth/cell group etc. Even after printing, our material
remains the exclusive property of ByFaith Media, all rights reserved.
If you have found a spelling error on any page, please email us with the page link
(Example - www.byfaith.co.uk/paulb112.htm#t) and help us identify the paragraph with the problem. Whilst every attention
is made to check and recheck each page, there are times when mistakes go unnoticed and the author, editor and the ByFaith
Team would greatly appreciate these errors being pointed out. Please note that there are spelling and grammatical
differences between American English and Standard English. We understand that within the Evangelical Christian
Church (though united in our central doctrines) there are many different interpretations of Scripture. We do have
respect for those who interpret the Scriptures differently from us, but we do not have time to discuss different views.
Are you called to do a short-term mission, or do you feel a lifetime appointment to missions? If you feel called to do a
short-term mission see the next question. If you feel the call to become a full time missionary, you will probably need
good biblical training - take a look at our Bible College Directory with the advice page. We
recommend that you read our missions page and especially the article
entitled ‘Ambassadors for Christ.’
If you belong to a good evangelical church, hopefully your pastor or elders can help give you some advice. You may also
be able to get wisdom from visiting missionaries, or from missionary biographies. If you have a burden for a country, why
not start by studying and praying for that country?
The quickest way to contact us is via email. Our ministry is optimised to receive contact
through email and if you post us something, please understand that it will take longer for us to get the
letter. If you need to send a letter to us please email us for the address.
Please note, our primary form of correspondence is via email. Our postal address is not for personal counselling,
which we are not in a position to offer.
If you have a doctrinal question, you must appreciate that ByFaith productions are not an in-depth biblical exposition of each
subject, but rather it is a very basic look at the subject(s) through the thoughts and experiences that the ByFaith
Team had whilst on these missions. In every country they ask, “What did God teach us through our experiences in this
country.” Hopefully, every episode will provoke thought, interest and research into every subject by the affected viewer.
If you require in-depth exposition, maybe you should view a Bible teaching programme, rather than our ‘Journey of
Discipleship’. You can also develop your understanding by searching through our website and in other places. We understand
that within the Evangelical Christian Church, (though united by our central doctrines) there are many different
interpretations of Scripture. We do have respect for those who interpret the Scriptures differently from us, but we do
not have time to discuss different views. Jesus said, “Go into all the world and make disciples of all the nations
baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things
that I have commanded you…” Matthew 28:19-20. Jesus final words were not about discussing theology and people's different
interpretations, however important that may be, but a call to preaching and discipleship.
If you have a question about the mission work, please look at the questions on this page. If your question
is not answered by the comments on this page and on the other relevant pages, and you have watched every episode, then
feel free to contact us.
