What role does integrity play in our hope in God?
I have enemies. You have enemies. When we follow Jesus, that is reality. When we speak out for Him, we are attacked. Some days I get focused on the enemy and the pain. I need to focus on Jesus.
May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope, Lord, is in you.Psalm 25:20-21 (NIV)
In Jesus, I have been made a new creation. I’ve shared His death and resurrection to a new life. I’ve been born again.
I share the integrity and uprightness of Jesus. Jesus has defeated death and the evil one. As the Apostle Paul reminds me,
“Therefore, if anyone is in the Messiah, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”(2 Corinthians 5:17)
Hope is amazing. Hope protects us. “We belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet.” (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
This is nothing I have accomplished myself. I miss God’s goal (aka sin) a lot. It is all about Jesus and my hope in Him.
Κύριε Ἰησοῦ Χριστέ, Υἱέ τοῦ Θεοῦ, ἐλέησόν με τὸν ἁμαρτωλόν
Translated: “Lord Jesus the Messiah, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner”
What We Believe
There is power in prayer. We see it every day. Let us join with you in tapping into the Power of God. Click here to make a request.
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. Learn more here.
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.
- 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.
