Author bio

Diane M. Hoffmann has been in the Christian ministry since 1981 when she met God personally and asked Him into her life. An ardent Bible student with various Bible colleges and churches, she first began her formal studies with the Eastern Pentecostal Bible College and went on to obtain her bachelor’s degree in Theology at Canada Christian College and School of Graduate Theological Studies, (Inter-denominational), Toronto, Canada in 1988. Dr. Diane then completed a master’s degree in Theology in 1990 and a PhD in Theology in 1991 (Thesis: “The Theological Relationship between the Old and the New Testament”—Particularly in the History of the Jewish People) through Christian Bible College (Inter-denominational), Rocky Mount, North Carolina, United States.

She is an ordained minister of the Gospel through
the Independent Assemblies of God International (Canada). Diane maintains a website where she offers Bible study programs, theological readings and discussions, and other Christian articles and products to help Christians grow in their Christian faith.

As an author, her work encompasses many written booklets, tracts, and articles on Christian literature and theology, her books Horizontal Chronology of the Four Gospels and The Global Mindset Report, as well as many other written works. As a business person and entrepreneur, Diane has also written many business articles and delivered seminars, including a book on communication Contextual Communication, Organization and Training, the ten-part Kindle series of the same book, various e-books on starting and running an online and offline business, and The First Step series on starting and running a small business. She offers business consulting and
services to the seniors in the community.

In 2011, Diane was awarded the title of Diamond Expert Writer by EzineArticles© Publishers. A year later, she also achieved a marathon award of completion for writing one hundred articles in one hundred days for the same publisher. Diane went on to complete studies and training for her designation as a certified professional consultant on aging (CPCA) from the Age-Friendly Business© of which she was a member until 2015.

As a nutritional consultant from the Packard School of Nutrition, Diane has also written many articles and seminars in health and nutrition as well as diet programs to help people with their health and nutrition issues. Diane also holds a certificate as an international staging and redesign professional, which enables her to help people with the editing of their home decoration for a peaceful and harmonizing personal and family living experience.

In 2013, Diane stepped out in faith to take on her biggest undertaking ever: running as MLA (Member of the Legislative Assembly) for a local political party. Diane feels that Christians have certain responsibilities in the governing of their country. Since no one was stepping up to the plate in that constituency area, and even though she did not have the political experience, Diane felt strongly that the voters deserved to have a choice on the ballot other than the same parties of the last several years. It was a growing experience, and she and the constituency voters came out third throughout the immediate regional area.

Statement of Faith

 We believe that there is one eternal God, in three persons: 
Father, Son and Holy Spirit -- not three Gods, ONE.

We believe that God loves all people and because of this He is not willing that any should perish, 
but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9).

We believe that humanity is desperately messed up, especially today, because of sin and that we can only find healing, renewal and salvation through a relationship with Jesus Christ, who was born to give His sinless life in our place (for the wages of sin is death -- Romans 6:23), as the ultimate sacrifice on the cross, then rose again from the dead to give us new life in Christ.

We believe that He then sent His Holy Spirit when He returned to His heavenly glory, to teach us in all things, and bring all things to our remembrance, whatsoever He has said unto us while He was on earth. The Holy Spirit now guides us and draws us into that relationship with Jesus, helps us to understand truth, and empowers us to witness and share all truths with others.

We believe that the Church was God's idea (despite our flaws), and that followers of Jesus need to grow in their faith by gathering with other Christians to worship God and to engage with Scripture as a family.

We believe that the Bible is the authoritative Word of God, and that it is credible and trustworthy.

We believe in the practices of the Lord's Supper and water baptism for all followers of Jesus.

We believe in the soon return of Jesus Christ and that while we look forward for this awesome event we are responsible to act justly, to love mercy and to bring good to our world, while inviting others into a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ.
