Books – Islam Lutfi:
Rev. Dr. Andre Zaki, head of the Evangelical Community in Egypt, participated in the inauguration of the Baptist Theological College in the Middle East, today, Friday, in El-Shorouk City, in the presence of a number of evangelical community leaders from members of the General Evangelical Council, heads of evangelical denominations in Egypt, and leaders of the Evangelical Synod of the Nile, with the participation of Rev. Eid Salib, President of the General Assembly of Independent Baptist Churches, Dr. Joseph Morris, Dean of the College, Rev. Archie Norman, President of the Baptist Mediterranean Mission, and Dr. David Dickerson, Director of the Baptist Theological Seminary in Georgia, USA.
At the beginning of his speech, the President of the Evangelical Church saluted each of the Rev. Liather Benjamin and Sheikh Sami Labib, who passed away from our world and had a great role in establishing the college. He said: “My heart is happy today when I see this great educational edifice in the presence of the leaders and symbols of the evangelical community.”
The head of the Evangelical Church added: “Theological education is linked to the certainty of faith, so we have to believe that there are principles in dealing with the sacred text, and that the beauty of faith is that it is part of submission, and what we believe in is real and certain, and this makes us proud of the word of God that is in our hands.”
