Narrow Way Ministries and Narrow Way Bible College & Seminary was founded in Jacksonville, FL in 2000 by Dr. Samuel Greene. Narrow Way Ministries is a Spirit-filled, non-denominational church. At Narrow Way Ministries, we are dedicated to preparing the bride of Christ through discipleship training and practical ministry. Wherever the Lord sends us, we desire to take the message of sound doctrine, present day truths, the revelation of the glory of God, the coming of the Lord, the message of the manifestation of the sons of God, the calling to be the bride of Christ having true, intimate, liberated, and glorious worship in the manifest presence of God, and the message to call God’s people out of Babylon.

We understand that every Christian is at a different level spiritually. Our commitment then is to serve, feed and bless the body of Christ with milk for babes, bread for children, meat for young men, strong meat for the aged, and hidden manna for the over-comer. Now more than ever, God’s people need to have a deep foundation in the Word of God as well as revelation of present truths, as the body of Christ prepares for the coming of the Lord. God’s desire is that His people “all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” and “may grow up into Him in all things…” (Ephesians 4:14-15). Therefore our goal is to lay an awesome foundation of the Word of God as well as end-time revelatory truth in the lives of every disciple and to bring them into an onward and upward in a relationship of intimacy and deep worship with their Bridegroom, Jesus.

Over the years, the Lord has enlarged our steps by opening up doors to successfully start a church and bible school in La Paz and Cochabamba Bolivia, Zambia Africa, Juneau Alaska and most recently in Davao City Philippines. Our vision is to raise up churches and schools all over the United States and the world as the Lord leads.Since credibility in leadership is of utmost importance we are working hard to raise up faithful priests and leaders in the body of Christ who will be men and women of integrity, committed servants who emulate the pattern given to us in Ezekiel 44 concerning the sons of Zadok, full of the Word of God, full of the glory of God, and leaders who will have true father ministries. Our heart is to not build buildings or make a name for ourselves, but our desire and vision is to build the Kingdom of God by building God’s people by feeding them with a deep knowledge and understanding of the Scriptures, allowing them to grow in the Spirit of God and manifest presence of God, thus enabling them to mature and grow closer and more intimate in their own personal walk with Jesus ultimately preparing themselves for the coming of the Lord and preparing them for their own ministries. This is true discipleship and discipleship is the pattern God Himself requires. In II Timothy 2:2 Paul exhorts Timothy, his son in the faith, by saying, “And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.” Amen!

We believe our vision follows the true Bible pattern established by the Lord Jesus, the early church disciples, and Paul the Apostle. Our desire is to honor, magnify, and glorify Jesus in all that we say or do, for it is “of Him, and through Him, and to Him are all things” (Romans 11:36). We desire to be faithful and honorable stewards of our threefold God, His mysteries, will and purpose to this generation. Below is the Scriptural Foundation for our Vision at Narrow Way Ministries:
