Based on Hosea 2, God desires to bring restoration to our lives, marriages, and families. The primary path that leads to restoration is brokenness. Brokenness is necessary in every person's life in order for healing to take place. As a ministry, we embrace brokenness and welcome healing through Christ.
Jesus did not come to usher in a behavior-modification plan. He came to ransom our hearts. As a ministry, we maintain a steady focus on heart-level issues with God and others.
Jesus came and fulfilled the prophecy laid out in Isaiah 61. Part of that mission was to "bind up the brokenhearted". As a ministry, we recognize the deep wounds in all of our hearts that continue to wreak havoc on our relationships with God and others. Awareness of these wounds is important but does not equate with healing. We desire to usher in more healing.
God is relational and in perfect fellowship as Father, Son, and Spirit. Created in His image, we have the unique capacity for relationship. To live in isolation is to deny being an image-bearer. Through the body of Christ, we can experience community which is integral to transformation. As a ministry, we celebrate community and relationships.
As a ministry, we are committed to doing ministry as a team. Laying aside the lone-ranger mentality, we choose to rely on others for wisdom and direction.
In Acts 2, the local church is birthed by God's powerful Spirit. Launching a movement of God, this comunity would be the hands and feet of God. As a ministry, we are committed to the building up and encouragement of the local church.
