Did some religious elite appoint us as spokespersons for Jesus?

I am astounded at how many companions in faith I have. Due to the power of the world wide web, I meet more and more every day. What a joy. What a pleasure.

Where does our authority come from to say what we proclaim? Did we get elected? Does it come from a popular vote? Did some religious elite appoint us as a spokesperson for Jesus?

Nope! We are not wise from a theological point of view. I don’t have an advanced degree. The church doesn’t sanction what I say.

The only authority we have comes directly from Jesus, the anointed King (Messiah). It comes from God who raised Him from the dead.

Because of that we have great words. What are they? They are grace (the stunning beauty of Jesus) and peace!

I know what peace is because Jesus the Messiah rescued me from this evil world. I’m in on things because Jesus offered himself as a sacrifice for my missing God’s goal (aka sin).

God has a plan. God wants everyone to experience that rescue.

Glory to God forever. Oh yes, it is amazing.

What We Believe

Our programs are like an immersion into a new language – the language of living in Jesus.  The goal is fluency in the language of relationships.  Programs share a sequential vision, building an understanding of relationships and family culture.  The foundation is an encounter with Jesus.  This encounter is the means for both insight and vision.  Encountering Jesus leads a radical change in living and relationships.

We are an inter-denominational ministry, and our desire is for transformation: a genuine change of heart and lifestyle that flows out of an intimate relationship with Jesus.

We believe:

  • Jesus is Lord. We exalt the One True God who made us and gave us the Lord Jesus Christ as our salvation. Our goal is to be a people with a heart for obedience to Christ in all things. His work made it possible for us to live – eternally and now – as children of God. Jesus made it possible for us to be rightly related to the Father and to one another. His desire is for us to succeed. We believe a right relationship with Him is the first and most important step.
  • The Bible is True. God’s Word is alive and active (Hebrews 4:12-13), which we take into our minds and spirits and live out through the flesh. When Jesus asked what the greatest commandment was, He said, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30-31). The basis for everything we teach is “Life is Relationships.”
  • Presence and Power of the Holy Spirit. We desire to walk in and by the Spirit. The Holy Spirit (available to all believers) empowers Christians for living witness and dedicated service.
