A Life Lived Wholly Unto God - Chapter 17: Water of Life Christian Training School

A Testament of the Grace of God on His Servant
by Kathryn Currier with Doyle Davidson

God began revealing the gospel to Doyle and the foundation laid by the apostles in 1973. In 1983 at the direction of God, he began Water of Life Christian Training School.

“In January the Lord instructed me to begin a bible school. When I shared this with one of the leaders of Water of Life he replied halfheartedly, “Well, who is going to come?” My response was, “I don’t care if anyone comes. I will teach to the chairs.” Two weeks later Water of Life Christian Training School was established with fifty-four students in attendance. We repeated the same teaching in September adding another term, enlarging the school to comprise of a fall and spring semester.

The teaching began with the Gospel and Its Benefits. After that I taught the foundation found in Hebrews 6:

1) Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

2) Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

The course was called, ‘Foundation Faith’ but we covered each of the principals separately; Repentance from Dead Works, Faith Toward God, The Doctrine of Baptisms, The Doctrine of Laying on of Hands, Resurrection of the Dead and Eternal Judgment.” (From A Work of Righteousness by Doyle and Kathie Davidson)

From the Christian Training School came 239 hours of teaching tapes which he sent to Africa, all over the United States and many other countries upon request. In 1990 God had him put some of the teaching tapes in book form with the help of Randy Brooks and Wally Edge.

In 1983 God instructed him to begin receiving satellite teaching from Word of Faith Outreach and once a month they would receive teachings from well known faith ministries. Doyle knew that that those ministering on Word of Faith broadcasts were teaching in error and not walking in obedience to the word but he also knew he was receiving them at Water of Life so he could overcome the spirits they walked in. A number of people at Water of Life were troubled because they knew these ministers were teaching things that were not scriptural, but Doyle encouraged everyone to just be still, God was doing this. In March of 1986 Word of Faith was broadcasting an event and there were all sorts of emotional manifestations and people were proclaiming it was another Azusa Street. Doyle said to the Lord one morning, “This is not you, Lord” and the Lord spoke to him and said, “Since you have rightly judged you are free from taking Word of Faith Satellite.” He said he couldn’t get to the church fast enough to end it.
