Our Foundation: The Father’s Love
The Father’s Love and the Spirit of Adoption are our most important foundations. We believe that if orphaned and wounded children can understand how deeply they are accepted and loved by their heavenly Father, their hearts will be healed. When they come to Jesus, He makes a way for them to know their Father. The orphan Spirit is broken as they receive the Spirit of Adoption knowing their Father through His Son Jesus. They come to know that they are chosen, adopted, deeply loved, accepted, safe, and treasured and gain the confidence to step into their identity, destiny, and inheritance as royal sons and daughters of the King of Kings!
“For you have not received the spirit of slavery leading to fear, but you have received the spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, Abba! Father!”
We instill in our children that when they come to Christ, they are adopted into a Royal Family with a Father who is the King of Kings. We teach them that they are not orphaned, abandoned, or poor, but they are truly… ROYALTY. They learn what this means in terms of having the characteristics of “true princes and princesses” with Godly character and pure hearts. It also means that they have Kingdom authority and power over the Devil, as well as Kingdom destinies uniquely designed just for them by their Father. Like Queen Esther, once an orphan, or Moses, who was abandoned, they are born for great and mighty things. They were born with a God given purpose and dream.
“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”
—1 Peter 2:9
Prayer and Worship
We are cultivating a culture of Prayer and Worship as our children have grown to love to pray and worship God through song. We teach them that prayer and worship is not just a song, but it is a lifestyle. We encounter His love as we press in to His Presence with abandonment.
“One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.”
We believe in knowing the word of God and imparting this knowledge into our children and future generations. We believe in pouring our lives into a few who will pour their lives into a few. Through our discipleship programs, this is possible. We believe Jesus was the best example of this as He gave His time and teaching to the 12 disciples who in turn discipled others and started a chain reaction that has touched the world.
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
We believe in reaching out to the least of these and being the hands and feet of Jesus Christ. Surrounded by overwhelming need, we see each one as Jesus in disguise. Jesus the orphan, Jesus the abandoned, Jesus the AIDS patient, Jesus the rape victim, Jesus the widow, Jesus the sick, Jesus the lonely, Jesus the poor visits us on a daily basis and it is our honor to serve Him and to love Him. We teach this to our children and invite them in sharing in serving Christ in the least of these.
“Whatsoever you do unto the least of these my brethren, you do it unto me.”
Faith for Miracles
We believe that God’s Holy Spirit inside of us and His love gives us access to see His Kingdom come through the miraculous. We are cultivating a culture of the miraculous where impossibilities and evil bondages bow down to the name of Jesus. We are watching as His love heals children of HIV/AIDS and tumors, delivers them of demonic strongholds, provides miraculously, heals hearts, and comes in glorious power and LOVE.
“Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.”
We believe that God is faithful no matter what circumstance we face. We believe it is His will for His children to be saved, healed, delivered, and provided for, and He will be true to every promise written in His word.
“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.”
Salvation and Evangelism
We believe that Jesus Christ is the way, the Truth and the Life and that no man can come to the Father in heaven except through Him. We believe that Jesus Christ is our only salvation and saves us from hell, sin, and death, and delivers us into a life of freedom, righteousness, joy, and peace in the Holy Spirit now and eternally. We believe in evangelizing and sharing this truth in creative ways so that many may be brought into salvation!
“Jesus replied, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life; no man comes to the Father except through Him.’”
