We believe Christianity is a movement not a special interest group. A transformational force that can change lives, communities, and our world. The following is our ministry statement on movement. We encourage you and your church to write your own movement statement. What are you going to stand for? How are you, as a Christian, going to live out your calling and commission to be a disciple who makes disciples?
We live in a time of pessimism, hopelessness, and despair. The faith of our founding fathers has been disemboweled by the dry rot of moral decay. Rampant secularization is the thief that has captured and chained our national strength and resolve. We stand shattered by domestic violence, crippled by internal corruption, stripped from the power of the most basic building block of humanity, the family unit.
We stand naked and vulnerable in the face of evil forces abroad and sinister corruption in our own backyard. But we do not stand alone. We stand, without shame, with the King of the universe, Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. We also stand with brothers and sisters—the church, with the power of resurrection at our backs, and the potential of renewal before us. We are committed to contribute to a reversal in the trend of decline of the Christian movement in North America. We lift the church as God’s mechanism for changing the world, one person at a time.
The local church, when it does what God has called it to do, and does it right, is the most powerful mechanism for positive change in the universe. We are committed to helping the local church, with a greater end: one church after another, after another, until a divine momentum is formed; a momentum that will unleash spiritual influence on other churches—and then a movement is formed.
This is our calling. We are prepared to make whatever sacrifices. By God’s grace, this will be accomplished in our generation, or we will die trying. Either way, we die fulfilled. Our nation, under our watch, will not go down the toilet.
