“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast”. Ephesians 2:8-9
Our soul desire is to “KNOW CHRIST” to the fullest. This isn’t a mere intellectual understanding or fact gathering exercise… no… it is the integration of knowledge to an intimate, personal connection with JESUS. To know JESUS, “PERSONALLY” means that we have entered into a personal relationship with JESUS CHRIST, through faith experiencing the incredible working of HIS GRACE. (EPH 2:8-9). To “KNOW CHRIST” is  a journey in this life that we are all on, as we walk out our messy spiritual lives allowing the HOLY SPIRIT to transform us from within.


“For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline”. 2 Timothy 1:7
The heart of GOD is that every CHRIST-follower is walking this life inFREEDOM”.The FREEDOM that GOD wants us to walk out is from every aspect of life that defeats, diminishes, dilutes, or discourages us from experiencing the transforming power of GOD in our lives. JESUS CHRIST came to set us all FREE from the domain of darkness that our enemy influences so that every CHRIST-follower can walk in power, love and a sound mind.  (II TIM 1:7)


“For I know the plans that I have for you, ‘declares the LORD,’ plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11

The heart of GOD is that every CHRIST-follower DISCOVERS how GOD has uniquely made them. Our DISCOVERY is through the revelation of our personality (how we are wired) and the spiritual gifts that GOD has given us.We know that GOD has a plan and purpose for us all (JER 29:11) and in HIS plan HE desires to reveal and release HIS full power and provision to the fullest in the life we have been given.


“And He said, ‘Go into the city to a certain man, and say to him. ‘The Teacher says, “My time is near; I am to keep the Passover at your house with My disciples,”‘” The disciples did as Jesus had directed them; and they prepared the Passover.”
Matthew 28:18-19
The heart of GOD is that every CHRIST-follower obeys the mandate that was given to “GOinto all the world preaching the Gospel. (MATT 28:18-19) This privilege that every CHRIST-follower has been given is to engage the culture and context that JESUS has placed us in. For some will engage the world through foreign mission yet the vast majority will engage through the MISSION field of the very lives they have been given. Each CHRIST-follower is to bear the image of GOD and to emit HIS fragrance to everyone they come into contact with.
