Welcome to Rapier Publishing Company (RPC). As president and CEO, I am so elated that you have decided to join our TEAM. At Rapier, we are dedicated and committed in providing you the quality service with a “Spirit of Excellence” and utmost satisfaction. Our team consists of a group of individuals who are competent and efficient in making sure your book becomes the reality that God intended it to be. Our goal is to make your voice heard through print. Our primary commission is to provide our customers with books that will cause a change in their lives, impacting them to be better servants for God and His Kingdom. As an author with RPC, we are very grateful and blessed that you are part of that great commission. We don’t take it for granted that you have selected us to publish what God has put in your heart. We know it’s by His Grace, and not our own doing, so again we thank you for selecting us to be about of what God is doing in your life at such a time as this. With you on our Team, we are changing the world one book at a time.
That’s why our foundational scripture is so profound: “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart,” Hebrews 4:12 (KJV). When the Lord birthed this in me, He gave me the name Rapier. It was when I looked up the word in the dictionary; I knew it wasn’t a coincidence. I understood what He called me to do…write and publish books for people like you and me, who want the Truth, setting us free to be everything God has called us to be.
Rapier comes from the French word rapière, from Old French (espee) rapiere, rapier (sword). A Rapier sword is a long-bladed, slender, two-edged sword with a cuplike hilt constructed to provide protection for the hand wielding it. It was used in the 16th and 17th centuries. It is characterized as a light, sharp-pointed sword lacking a cutting edge and used only for thrusting. While the blade might be broad enough to cut to some degree, the strength of the rapier is its ability as a thrusting weapon. A typical example would weigh 1 kg and have a relatively long and slender blade of 2.5 centimeters or less in width, 1 meter or more in length and ending in a sharply pointed tip.
Like the Rapier sword, our books and our authors are using our voices in print, “thrusting” God’s Word in the atmosphere, making a difference, setting the captives free, healing the sick, delivering the bound, and transforming minds to become better servants for God, His people, His Kingdom, and mankind as a whole. Our mission states it all: to proclaim, enhance and empower the Kingdom of God through the writing, producing and distribution of quality books that edify, motivate and inspire readers, enabling them to live victorious and righteous lives in and for God. Again, welcome to Rapier. Welcome to the TEAM!
A company built on Christian principles, beliefs, and the foundation of Jesus Christ.
A company dedicated to excellence, integrity, the truth, and you.
A company dedicated to serving you, and making sure that your voice is heard in print.
At RPC Our Objectives Are:
To provide quality service and products with a “Spirit of Excellence” through the means of books (nonfiction and fiction), manuscripts, or other publications.
To provide Christian authors a venue to spread their message.
To never compromise, conform, or lack fortitude in the mission to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ through print.
To bring God’s Word alive to the reader.
To assist in the enhancement of edifying the Kingdom of God with financial contributions.
Our Statement of Faith:
With God, nothing is impossible, but everything is possible. As we seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness,
we will be able to do all things through Jesus Christ who strengthens us and gives us the will and power to do what He has
called and enabled us to do in a “Spirit of Excellence.”
Through published books and other commitments, our foremost aspiration is to direct people to the Truth, which is Jesus Christ;
setting them free from bondage, strong-holds, addictions, generational iniquities, depression, oppression, and any other sin they
may be dealing with, so they can live fruitful, prosperous and righteous live for God and His Kingdom.
Therefore, we walk by faith and not by sight, for we know that it is not by our power, nor by our might, but by the Holy Spirit who
works in us and through us. As a result, we are more than conquerors; we are heirs of the Kingdom of God, and everything we do is prosperous, and all things work together for those who love the Lord, and are called according to His purpose and plan.
