The Pursuit. The Purpose. The Pattern.
The Pursuit of Every Person:
In a culture that is dominated by fear, indifference, greed, jealousy, and competitiveness, many hurting and broken people are wrestling with self-worth, self-respect, and identity. We want to help you be at peace in your heart, fulfill your God-given purpose, and have a fruitful life by leaving a godly legacy.
Invite the Lord to R.A.I.D. your life TODAY!
Repentance – A change of mind, of attitude and of direction.
Acceptance – Receive the gift of forgiveness & the removal of past guilt and shame.
Identity – Live life with joy without needing constant approval or having unhealthy dependencies on others.
Dependence – Rest in the love of Christ in child-like faith and obedience.
The Purpose of Our Ministry:
The ministry that God has called us to steward is helping to heal the hearts of hurting humanity, who are often seeking to be justified by their eloquent words without truly searching and knowing what is in their wounded hearts.
We will share God’s word with integrity and in truth, and God’s people will see Kingdom fruit and advancement because their hearts are purged and pure before the Father. With guarding the heart as our focus, there will be nothing that hinders progress and growth – as intentions are right, motivations are healthy, and all actions are prayerfully pursued.
The Pattern of Our Mission:
- Do the Mission that was given to us by God. In Matthew 10:5-8, the Bible says, “Jesus sent his twelve harvest hands out with this charge: ‘Don't begin by traveling to some far-off place to convert unbelievers. And don't try to be dramatic by tackling some public enemy. Go to the lost, confused people right here in the neighborhood. Tell them that the kingdom is here. Bring health to the sick. Raise the dead. Touch the untouchables. Kick out the demons. You have been treated generously, so live generously.’”
- Minister to the needs of others as a perpetual priority. In Matthew 10:9-10, the Bible says, “Don't think you have to put on a fund-raising campaign before you start. You don't need a lot of equipment. You are the equipment, and all you need to keep that going is three meals a day. Travel light.”
- Our personal needs will be met as we focus on others. In Matthew 10:11-15, the Bible says, “When you enter a town or village, don't insist on staying in a luxury inn. Get a modest place with some modest people, and be content there until you leave. When you knock on a door, be courteous in your greeting. If they welcome you, be gentle in your conversation. If they don't welcome you, quietly withdraw. Don't make a scene. Shrug your shoulders and be on your way. You can be sure that on Judgment Day they'll be mighty sorry—but it's no concern of yours now.”
