We are so privileged to have this opportunity to share our First Love with you and we hope that you will be encouraged and strengthened, falling even more in love with our King.
Our ministry exists to call the Body of Messiah back to her First Love.
The journey of returning to our First Love is a real and personal one to us, therefore our testimony and mandate.
By the grace of our Lord Jesus, He saved us out of the shadow of darkness, which speaks of religion in our case and brought us full circle into His marvelous Kingdom of Light once again.
Revelations 2:4 “Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.”NKJV
This is a grave sin that the church is guilty of, that we have forsaken our First Love (Jer. 2). We must return to Jesus with our whole heart and build an intimate relationship with Him. Learn to hear His voice and follow Him everyday.
Abiding in the Vine, which is Jesus, is a necessity for every believer. This is a spiritual state of being that can and should be experienced daily. It is from this place of intimacy that we bear fruit that glorify the Father (John 15:8).
John 15:5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.”NKJV
The Lord has called us to be a House of Prayer (Isa. 56:7). It is our desire to see the church become a house of prayer again.
The fear of the Lord is the foundation of a House of Prayer.
We share how the Lord saved us out of the Hebrew Roots Movement in order to warn and teach the body of Christ about the dangers of religion (which is also active in the church) and how to discern between the natural and the spiritual. The spirit of religion operates as a counterfeit of the true spiritual and keep people immature in the faith (Eph. 4:14, 2 Tim. 3:7) whereby they can be easily deceived into false doctrines (2 Pet. 2:1-3) and deny the Lord who bought them.
As we encountered the love of God which flows through the presence of Jesus, our hearts became more and more aware of the suffering and need in our community. We started assisting with people who are in need of food and plan to keep on sharing the compassion of Jesus to the needy (1 John 3:17).
All of the above can be summarized as discipleship or following Jesus. As we listen to our Good Shepherd’s voice and obey, we grow into His likeness and image.
We love to serve others through prayer and Bible study, assisting brothers and sisters in their journey with Jesus. As the Word says in Hebrews 10:25 “not forsaking the assembling of yourself together…”, we should be eager to gather together with one another to build one another up in our pure faith, our eyes fixed on Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith (Heb. 12:2).
Maranatha “O Lord, come” (1 Cor. 16:22) is our cry. We believe that we are the End Time Church and that we should be preparing for the soon return of the Lord. Proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom to the whole world and with all diligence making our call and election more sure, the call of children of God (2 Pet. 1:10).
We would love to hear from you.
In His Love
