Our Mission: To Help You Navigate the Challenges of Life
God uniquely designed each of us with a plan and for a purpose, yet it never seems that simple in real life. We know life is hard, and we’re here to help by equipping and encouraging you as you navigate the challenges of life.
And you may be thinking…How is this different? What’s unique about this ministry? Is this just another “life coach”?
We’re glad you asked. Here’s how we’re different:
BOOKS ~ RESOURCES ~ ASSESSMENTS ~ MENTORING ~ SEMINARS
A “module” simply refers to a set of materials that have been organized and compiled for you in one simple place. Once you choose your preferred topic, feel free to explore the materials at your own pace, or let us know if you’d like the assistance of a Coach. In some cases, we are simply pointing you to the subject matter experts whose research and materials we believe to be life-changing. We highly encourage you to visit their site and order their materials, such as The 5 Love Languages, and also the Boundaries study. In other cases, our certified coaches have developed proprietary materials, such as the DISC-over Yourself module and the Personal Inventory.
Statement of Faith
Concerning God: We believe in the Holy Trinity, that there is but one God, who exists eternally in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Concerning Man: We believe that all have sinned and fallen short of God’s plan and are in need of being brought into right relationship with God.
Concerning Salvation: We believe salvation is from God alone, accomplished by the completed work of Jesus Christ. It is applied to mankind, not on the basis of individual merit, but by the grace of God through faith, alone, apart from any works of man.
Concerning Jesus: We believe Jesus is the eternal Son of God, born of a virgin; and, who lived a perfect life and gave that life on the cross as a sacrificial atonement for those who would trust him for salvation.
Concerning Scripture: We believe the Bible is the word of God; given through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. We believe the Bible to be without error in the original manuscripts, and that it is infallible, and is authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.
Concerning Christ’s Return: We believe in the visible and bodily return of Jesus Christ, at a time appointed by, and known only to, God; and, that Jesus Christ will judge all mankind and receive His people to Himself.
