Truth-Keepers


Biblical Discipleship for low castes

As Truthseekers' movement grows, more and more castes are reconciled together and they've started rejecting the spiritual hegemony of Brahmin priests. This cultural shift creates a huge void. Who will solemnize weddings now? Who will bless new houses and business? This is the problem that Truth-Keepers Discipleship program is solving. We are discipling people into solid Christ followers who will have the authority, confidence and capacity to pastor the low and out castes, including performing and presiding over the spiritual ceremonies that Brahmins once did.

Truth-Keepers discipleship is Biblical discipleship, teaching to love and obey Jesus, with a directed focus on community leadership. Truth-Keepers are active in the communities, not just performing ceremonies, but counseling and mentoring, leading worship, fighting for justice, teaching and preaching, advocating for inter-caste marriages, and training other Truth-Keepers. Our program is decentralized and Truth-Keepers are expected to start training new Truth-Keepers from day 1.

Reconciliation


The coming of the Kingdom of God

God has given all His children the ministry of reconciliation and through the Gospel two of the biggest components of reconciliation - love and forgiveness.  Our goal of the Kingdom of Jesus realized through caste annihilation by reconciliation implements these two Gospel qualities through reconciliatory events like footwashings.  All over India we have washed the feet of low and out castes to dignify them, show them the model of Jesus' washing feet, and promote reconciliation as a means to bring about His kingdom.

The fruit has been many more inter-caste footwashings organized without the direct involvement of the central Truthseekers office.  Indians are owning their new identity as God's children and pursuing reconciliation with neighboring castes with whom they've lived in conflict for thousands of years.

Bible Translation


God's Word for the low castes

Bible Translation


God's Word for the low castes

Truthseekers is bringing God’s Word in an acceptable form to India’s OBCs for the first time in history. When missionaries arrived in India they worked with the literate castes, meaning the Brahmins, to translate the Bible.  Inevitably Brahminical words and concepts were carried through the translation that dilute and subvert the power of the Gospel.

We are not only seeking to correctly translate the Bible, but to trans-create.  We are turning the Bible into song and poetry to be sung in India's native corporate worship format, the type of worship they've done for thousands of years.  Over 10,000 copies of a New Testament paraphrase has been translated into language understandable to the average lowered-caste Indian and distributed.  When complete the Bible will be available in audio and print using acceptable language to over 700 million people!

Dream Land School


Education for the out castes

Dream Land School


Education for the out castes

In New Delhi some nomadic Muslims have pitched bamboo and tarp tents on an empty plot of dust.  There is no running water, electricity, bathrooms, grass, nor any trees. In June, daytime temperatures will reach 100F (40C), and later the monsoons flood the land. 

Truthseekers International meet with the leaders of this outcast community and learned that no one was literate nor was in school.  We pitched our own tent to start their first ever school.  With additional support, we've been able to rent a building that can withstand the monsoon rains.  The benefit of literacy is beginning manifest itself and many children make their way to Dream Land School everyday.

Dream Land School is just one of many schools that Truthseekers has supported and helped get started.  With your support we have the ability to start many more.
