"To provide biblical solutions that provide personal success in life, family and work". 

Mission Statement

To bring them in: Matthew: 28:19 AMP

19 Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

To build them up: Ephesians 4:11-12 AMP

11 And His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers of the Gospel, traveling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock) and teachers.12 His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ's body (the church),

 Send them out: Luke 9:1-5 AMP

1 THEN JESUS called together the Twelve [apostles] and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases,2 And He sent them out to announce and preach the kingdom of God and to bring healing.3 And He said to them, Do not take anything for your journey–neither walking stick, nor wallet [for a collection bag], nor food of any kind, nor money, and do not have two undergarments (tunics).4 And whatever house you enter, stay there until you go away [from that place].5 And wherever they do not receive and accept and welcome you, when you leave that town shake off [even] the dust from your feet, as a testimony against them.
