That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen
with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning
the Word of life-- the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you
that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us-- that which
we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us;
and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.
And these things we write to you that your joy may be full.
(1 John 1:1-4 NKJV)
Holding Hands in Fellowship:
Holding Hands is the fellowship side of our entire foundational ministry and outreach programs.
Often times Jesus would bring His disciples aside privately to teach them, and expand upon the lessons He had given to the whole crowd. And He still desires to do so today. Why? Because sometimes, we can hear a message in church (as apart of the “crowd”), but have a hard time understanding how to go deeper in it, or apply it to our lives. So, we desire to come along side you (to draw aside with each other), to share with you, what we have learned so that it may help to give you insight and understanding of His Word as you grow in your own personal relationship.
Whether you need someone to actually study with, or to give you tips on how to grow in your walk with God, or to help you understand God's Word (and how it applies to our lives today), we are delighted to visit with you, and share ways we have found to go deeper in His Word, and then walk it out in faith.
We believe God desires for us to KNOW HIM, and not just to know things ABOUT Him. We also believe that God desires to have a personal relationship with each of us, but sometimes it can be very difficult to know how to start walking with Him in our lives (even if we are church goers).
So we invite you to sit down with us and visit. Let us help you in your walk, let us help you to come to know God in a more profound way, let us study together and learn how to live a life pleasing to God, as we connect the truth of His Word to our everyday life!
God's Word says that your faith will help to strengthen mine, and mine will help to strengthen yours... so lets hold hands, and come to KNOW God as we grow in His Word, as believers in Christ.
Often times when going through different stages in life,
it is hard to understand how God's Word applies to our situations.. it can also be very
difficult to focus on Him, instead of the struggles we are going through.
We read of a man in the Bible in Acts 8, who was hungry (and thirsty) for a better understanding of God's Word, so God sent a servant along side of him to help.
But an angel of the Lord spoke to Philip saying, "Get up and go south to the road that descends from Jerusalem to Gaza." ( This is a desert road.) So he got up and went; and there was an Ethiopian eunuch, a court official of Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, who was in charge of all her treasure; and he had come to Jerusalem to worship, and he was returning and sitting in his chariot, and was reading the prophet Isaiah. Then the Spirit said to Philip, "Go up and join this chariot." 30 Philip ran up and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet, and said,
"Do you understand what you are reading?" And he said, "Well, how
could I, unless someone guides me?" And he invited Philip to come up and sit with him.
(Acts 8:26-31 NASB)
Basically Philip asked this man, "Do you understand what you just read?"
And the man said, "How can I, unless someone explains it to me..."
THIS is what we desire to do, to help others have a better understanding of God’s Word,
and to see how to connect everyday life, with the His truths.
We invite you to join us as we gather together, and hold hands in fellowship in a Christ-like friendship, while we learn how to "do life" from the perspective of God's Word, and how it connects with everyday life.
Please know, we are NOT trying to persuade you to believe one thing over the other, or to pressure you into a specific doctrine (or denomination). We believe that GOD'S WORD is inspired by the Holy Spirit and it is HE who is the teacher.... We just desire to share what we have learned, and to help you to study God's Word for YOURSELF, so that YOU know and can understand what He has said, and how to apply it to your life today. SO THAT you will know truth for yourself, and will be able to discern a biblical accuracy and the difference between the truth and a lie (or a watered down version of the truth) when you hear it.
And ultimately... where two come into agreement, Jesus is there, and cord of three stands is not easily broken! So don't feel alone in your walk! Jesus is there, and so are we.
