Organization Foundation Scripture
“When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch, as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.” KJV
A SNAP SHOT OF ADJOINING LIFE MINISTRY U NLIMITED
The main focus of this ministry is to lead people to Christ and connect those ministries and services with one another for the common cause of Kingdom Building, pointing all towards the sustaining of a holy lifestyle. It is our commitment to you who join this ministry to equip you with a holy educational experience of seasonal teachings in the Five-Fold Ministry, motivating one another with principles that lead towards a true and unique manner of uplifting you towards your true destiny in Christ.
Additionally, our plan is always to encourage you to move from a dark state towards the light of the “SON” with whatever assignments have been placed into your hands. We do this by conducting unique seminars and workshops that are relative to your needs in ministries or services. With each presentation, we commit to bringing you seasonal individuals housing a wealth of knowledge, which will include but not be limited to, ongoing training in the field in which you are called to serve. Our vision is for all religious organizations and services that will unite with us in this training experience to share their experiences with others who are embarking on new ministries or services, giving them a message of hope and pointing them to the understanding of success through Jesus Christ.
Connectivity, we believe is the key to progressing for our community of believers today. Working together for a common cause shows unity, and we believe that we as believers can exhibit to the entire world that we are more than just a religious body, we are conquerors through Jesus Christ who owns everything and is the giver of goodness and peace.
Participating in the solution is the key to Kingdom Building.
Rejection is on the rise for religious leaders. We would like an opportunity to change the concept that is being exhibited today as it concerns Christian living and Christian business. We believe that if we apply the principles of Jesus we will be successful. This is not a new concept, but it is a concept that is not being strongly taught. We as believers are not game players of the world we live in, we are game rulers, delivers, and changers. (Join us and you will understand what we mean).
Ministries and businesses should be thriving in the religious community, but they are not. We believe it is because of our programmed mindsets. Everybody seems to have their own individual ways of doing ministry as they see fit. There is nothing new under the sun. “In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” Judges 17:6 We have to remember at all times, that it is not our ministry, it is God's ministry. LET"S GET BUSY bringing people to Christ in the fashion that Jesus did.
Purpose & Beliefs
Our purpose is to glorify God by conducting this organization in accordance with the Word of God, the Articles of Faith, the covenant and the constitution of this religious organization; to promote the worship of our God, through edifying believers, teaching the whole counsel of God, and administering the ordinances and Biblical discipline while seeking to win the lost to Christ through personal witnessing and the preaching of the gospel; to carry on a vigorous missionary program around the world; to establish other churches; to defend the faith, and maintain a good testimony for Christ in our community by godliness and good works. It is the intent of this religious organization to aid in the planting of other church communities and to assist in the aforementioned thorough instructions, prayer, love, and hope which has become the life mission of the Founders in the making of future disciples for Christ.
We believe in a mission-based, incarnation-based, and attraction-based focus when launching new faith communities. We believe the Spirit of God is calling and sending forth workers from the harvest field to begin new churches and ministries. We look for and are experiencing all different kinds of strategies, different kinds of people, different kinds of visions, and in all sizes of communities. Our first and initial purpose is to unite with those who have a zest, zeal, and burning concerning the spreading of the gospel of Jesus Christ, which will be done through our efforts of sounding out to others that the gospel is still the guideline to a productive and wholesome lifestyle. We will with the assistance of the Holy Spirit equip those that will assist through the teachings of Jesus the Christ to make disciples that make disciples thereby reproducing healthy disciples which plant the church of those disciples, which will make up the church.
What We Believe
God is the Creator of All
We believe in one God, Creator of all things, holy, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in a loving unity of three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Having limitless knowledge and sovereign power, God has graciously purposed from eternity to redeem a people for Himself and to make all things new for His own glory.
We believe that God has spoken in the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, through the words of human authors. As the verbally inspired Word of God, the Bible is without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for salvation, and the ultimate authority by which every realm of human knowledge and endeavor should be judged. Therefore, it is to be believed in all that it teaches, obeyed in all that it requires, and trusted in all that it promises.
The Human Condition
We believe that God created Adam and Eve in His image, but they sinned when tempted by Satan. In union with Adam, human beings are sinners by nature and by choice, alienated from God, and under His wrath. Only through God's saving work in Jesus Christ can we be rescued, reconciled and renewed.
We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and full man, one Person in two natures. Jesus-Israel's promised Messiah was conceived through the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father as our High Priest and Advocate.
The Work of Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ, as our representative and substitute, shed His blood on the cross as the perfect, all-sufficient sacrifice for our sins. His atoning death and victorious resurrection constitute the only ground for salvation.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit, in all that He does, glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ. He convicts the world of its guilt. He regenerates sinners, and in Him, they are baptized into union with Christ and adopted as heirs in the family of God. He also indwells, illuminates, guides equips, and empowers believers for Christ-like living and service.
We believe that the true church comprises all who have been justified by God's grace through faith alone in Christ alone. Churches are united by the Holy Spirit, in the body of Christ, of which Christ is the Head. The true church is manifest in local churches, whose membership should be composed only of believers. The Lord Jesus mandated two ordinances, baptism and the Lord's Supper, which visibly and tangibly express the gospel. Though they are not the means of salvation, when celebrated by the church in genuine faith, these ordinances confirm and nourish the believer.
We believe that God's justifying grace must not be separated from His sanctifying power and purpose. God commands us to love Him supremely. Secondly, love others sacrificially, and live out our faith with care for one another, compassion toward the poor, and justice for the oppressed. With God's Word, the Spirit's power, and fervent prayer in Christ's name, we are to combat the spiritual forces of evil. In obedience to Christ's commission, we are to make disciples among all people, always bearing witness to the gospel in word and deed.
We believe in the personal, bodily, and return of our Lord Jesus Christ. The coming of Christ, at a time known only to God, demands constant expectancy and, as our blessed hope, motivates the believer to godly living, sacrificial service, and energetic mission.
Response and Eternal Destiny
We believe that God commands everyone everywhere to believe the gospel by turning to Him in repentance and receiving the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that God will raise the dead bodily and judge the world, assigning the unbeliever to condemnation and eternal conscious punishment and the believer to eternal blessedness and joy with the Lord in the new heaven and the new earth, to the praise of His glorious grace.
