We are commanded to share the Bread of Life... 



to go out into the world with the light of Christ 



shining through our lives and letting the Good News 



...the wonders of God's grace be known. This is the 



Greatest News to share!


There is clear evidence, positive proofs and illustrations of the divine majesty and 


perfections of God... especially God's goodness, justice, providence, power, 


wisdom, and mercy.


There is nothing more beautiful than knowing that God is real, and that we have 


the privilege of developing intimacy... a personal relationship with God... the One 


Who created the universe and knows every intricacy of our entire existence!


According to Scripture, God is interested in humanity and has always desired to be 


close to us and have a personal relationship with us. God loves us and He only 


wants us to love Him back and be included in our daily lives. God desires to have 


special, deep, personal, and eternal relationship with us and has planned a way to 


make this relationship available to each and every one of us.



In keeping with Scripture, as we pray to God, read and meditate on God's Word, in 


an effort to get to draw nearer and know God better, we quickly come to realize... 


our supreme need to know God and seek the experience of God's presence. 



God's love for us is better than the best this life can ever be!


The more we are aware of God's work in our lives, the more we marvel at the 


innumerable gifts and immeasurable graces He showers on us. It doesn't matter 


how badly we have stumbled, faltered, blundered, and mishandled life... God's 


love can still reach, change, and save us. God views us as His cherished treasure! 


If we exist, we have value and worth and are beautiful to God. The worst person 


we could imagine can receive God's forgiveness by humbly asking for it. That's 


why God sent Jesus. 



We should behave like God's very own children, adopted into the bosom of His 


family. 


Satan's goal is to keep us from proclaiming and living out the 


Good News 


that sets people free. 

The thoughts of not being qualified to spread the Good News or being 

apprehensive and thinking God can use other people, but "Not us," consumes far 

too many of us. 

There is no such thing as a person God no longer wants or can use. God can still 


bring us through and out of the wilderness of defeat and use any of us for His 


glory, despite our past mistakes. Understanding this can rid us of fears and 


feelings of inadequacy.


We are ever in God's presence. All our thoughts, feelings, and acts are open to 


God's view. God is able to work through every expression of genuine faith, from 


the strongest and purest... to the weakest and worst.

God is faithful and true. I know this to be true in my own life. As I find myself 


reflecting on the wonders of God, God's goodness, God's loving-kindness, mercy, 


and faithfulness... I would be remiss not to sow the goodness of God forward. This 


is known as the "Great Commission," which is one of the final commands Jesus 


gave to His disciples.


I believe we are called to step outside of our comfort zone to share the Good News 


with others so that they may taste and see that God is awesome! 


So whether it's by talking with a neighbor, a stranger in the supermarket, visiting a 


community center, nursing home facility, other cities, states, or countries, God 


wants us to use every opportunity, far or near, in everything we do, to tell others 


about Him.


Regardless of where we have been, what we have done, how many failures we 


may be surrounded by, how successful or unsuccessful we are or have been, how 


deep the hurts and struggles, despite how sophisticated, religious, smart or broken 


we may be... no matter what we have done in the past... God loves us and is under 


no illusion about who we are, where we have been, what we have done or 


acquired.


"There is none righteous, no not one" 


(Romans 3:10)


Yes, we are all flawed, frail, and sinful. We all have sinned and cannot undo what 


we have done. We have all done, thought, or said unrighteous things, which the 


Bible calls sin. The fallen man is a sinner by birth and by choice. God knows we 


do not suddenly become perfect or capable of perfection in this life. 


If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us 


(1 John 1:8).



According to Scripture, 


"All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" 


(Romans 3:23). 



We have no obligations whatsoever to our old sinful lower nature to do what it 


begs us to do... to do what we know is wrong. So let us withdraw from punishing 


ourselves and telling ourselves how inadequate we are and how awfully we've 


failed. If we really did stumble, falter, blunder, or mishandle the assignment God 


gave us, let us repent and ask God to forgive us in spite of ourselves. May we ask 


God to forgive us for the times we have placed limitations on His ability to bless 


us because we thought we were not good enough. 



According to 1John 1:9, 


"If we confess our sins, God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse 


us from all unrighteousness."


Let us be clear... God's favor and righteousness is not of ourselves... neither is it a 


result of works that we might have a relationship with God. None of us have an 


ounce of power on our own to "Be like Jesus." 



It is only "Jesus in us" which produces 


a Christ-like life.

 


A Christ-like life begins to happen the moment a person is transformed. We 


spiritually die to the "Self", so that we are no longer trying to arrange the universe 


around our own plans, but we are surrendered to be used of God and God's plans 


and purposes in the world and for the world. In other words, Jesus becomes the 


King of our hearts and life.



 It doesn't matter how badly we have stumbled, faltered, blundered, and


mishandled life... God's love can still reach, change, and save us. God views us as 


His cherished treasure! If we exist, we have value and worth and are beautiful to 


God. The worst person we could imagine can receive God's forgiveness by 


humbly asking for it. That's why God sent Jesus. 



We should behave like God's very own children, adopted into the bosom of His 


family. I believe we are called to step outside of our comfort zone to share the 


Good News with others so that they may taste and see that God is awesome! So 


whether it's by talking with a neighbor, a stranger in the supermarket, visiting a 


community center, a car repair shop, other cities, states, or countries, God wants 


us to use every opportunity, far or near, in everything we do, to tell others about 


Him.



God is faithful and true. I know this to be true in my own life. As I find myself 


reflecting on the wonders of God, God's goodness, God's loving-kindness, mercy, 


and faithfulness... I would be remiss not to sow the goodness of God forward. This 


is known as the "Great Commission," which is one of the final commands Jesus 


gave to His disciples.



Then Jesus said to them...



tell everyone the Good News!


God knows our every thought, our 


sorrows, and our greatest hopes. God 


knows the many times we have sought 


Him. The many times we have felt 


limitless joy. The many times we have 


wept in loneliness. The many times we 


have felt helpless, confused, and/or 


angry. 

Yet, no matter our history—if we have faltered, failed, felt broken, bitter, betrayed, 


or beaten... with God, we are not alone.

God still calls to us. That is what 'unconditional love' looks like. Never 


abandoned. Never alone. Never tired of calling us. Never tired of waiting; 


watching; forgiving; helping; teaching; and loving us. The Savior extends His 


hand to us. He doesn't wait for us to reach for Him. He lovingly stands with arms 


outstretched, even as we speak.

God makes everything beautiful in its time."


Ecclesiastes 3:11

God knows our frame; He is mindful that we are but dust 


(Psalm 103:14). 


The Scriptures are very clear: 


We are ever in God's presence. God is nearer than our soul and closer than our 


most intimate thoughts. All our thoughts, feelings, and acts are open to God's 


view. 

This website draws heavily upon God's Word. 


Our views do not speak for or to any specific religion. We believe Spirituality 


extends far beyond the known and observable realm of worldly barriers and 


designations perceived between ourselves and others.

We believe God is Truth, 


and God's Truth is trans-cultural.


We believe if something is true, it is true for all people, in all places, at all times.


We believe Spirituality transcends the material aspects of life, the diversity of 


race, color, language, and sect, and helps us realize the dignity of each individual.

 

This typically means being less self-serving, overcoming ego, overcoming


self-righteous indignation, elevating our consciousness, and emulating the 


characteristics of our Creator.



We believe there is One God and 



Father from whom all things are.



We do not believe in being held captive by tradition.When our attitudes and 


actions are consistent with the teachings of Jesus... we can share, act, and come 


together. We believe everything that is needed to build a culture of peace already 


exists within each one of us. 


We believe, God is ever-present within



 us all, and God’s reign is universal.


“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof” 

(Psalm 24:1).

We are commanded to share the bread of life... to tell



the Good News of God,


the Greatest News to share


with every tribe, nation, and tongue.


We believe God's love extends far beyond imaginary man-made barriers 


and worldly designations, i.e., race, tribe, creed, color, gender, language, 


age, culture, disability, political beliefs, educational background, or socio-


economic differences, experiences, or realities.


God's sovereignty is not limited to a single nation or a single country. God is the 


Lord of all the world, for He is its Creator.


Whether we are conscious of it or not, we are all interconnected, living the 


human experience, breathing the same air, and eating food grown out of mother 


earth... and no matter how far away we live... every one of us are literally sharing 


her. 


Our deep-seated aversions to different races, tribes, colors, genders, languages, 


cultures, etc., may actually be our response to fear that those qualities we 


see in others... also exist in us.


There is One God and Father.


We all share and depend on the same Divine Creator. All of creation are a part of 


God's exquisite and divine plan. God gives pure love, life, breath, and spirit to 


everyone. 


God transcends all as well as emanates in all. Every thread is guided by the 


unspeakably tender hand of God. Everybody's story is important in this huge, rich, 


beautiful, and diverse tapestry. Every individual is like a thread and each thread 


has a vital contribution to make. Each thread has possibility. Each thread can make 


a positively good difference.



We believe that we fall short when we take a narrow view of the world and give in 


to stereotyping. Given that... one cannot rise above destructive and violent 


rhetoric. We believe the idea of difference, worldly isms, and class privilege 


are interlocking systems of oppression. They appear to be natural; however, 


they are, in fact, socially constructed and are used to rationalize inequality and 


all kinds of isms.



Spirit makes us relevant to anyone, anywhere, anytime. The Scriptures affirm the 


fundamental equality of all people before God. God's Word is very clear in telling 


us that no one is insignificant. Every single person is important, vital, and valuable


 to God. 


May we embrace the common thread that weaves the 


complex tapestry of life together.



It is our belief that if God is at work in our hearts giving us the desire to lovingly 


help others come to experience the joy in knowing Him and realizing and 


experiencing His love, especially considering the times and issues we are faced 


with in this fallen world, we would limit ourselves and be a disservice to the 


Kingdom of God if we did not share or chose to share only from one culture, 


laced with isms and ego.



We believe, with God in the forefront of all of our affairs, we can rise above 


narrow and habitual ways of thinking about other beings and free ourselves from 


identification with the temporary state of our physical forms as we remember our 


true nature.



We strongly believe when truth is well wrapped in God's grace... we are able to 


effectively witness to every tribe, nation, and tongue.



**Every tribe, nation, and tongue emphasizes the concept of wholeness, 


entirety, or all-encompassing.



We are all the work of God's hand.



-- Isaiah 64:8. 


We believe that now with advanced technology, nuclear energy, and computers as 


factors in society, we must seize the moment and become intentional about


 embracing and celebrating all races and cultures. We believe, inclusion propels us 


forward in Unity to our Divine Destiny.



God's message is always



one of inclusion.


The love of God is not confined to our past or national boundaries, but extends to 


all nations, tribes, cultures, tongues, and peoples.


We declare the Good News to all the nations because God is King over all the 


nations. Everyone on the face of the earth needs to hear The Good News because 


it applies to all of creation. It is about us all. It is for us all.


Revelation 7:9-10: “I looked, and behold, a great multitude ... 


of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, 


standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with 


palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying,


 ‘Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!’”


Spirituality extends beyond the sanctuary and the


 practice of religion.


Diversity did not stop Jesus. 


Jesus always included people.



Jesus embraced others with a radical disregard for their race, tribe, creed, color, 


class, religion, language, age, culture, disability, political beliefs, educational


 background, or socioeconomic differences, experiences, or realities. 


"Jesus ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and 


nation."


Revelations 5:9


We believe those of us who know God know that no one can annul what God has 


planned and purposed. As we wholeheartedly pursue a relationship with God and 


follow Jesus' lead... we, too, can boldly and bravely take advantage of every 


opportunity to exalt God publicly... especially in our, sincere, actions and words.




Jesus did not allow social status or cultural barriers to dictate His relationships 


with people. It didn't matter who people were, where they had been, or how


 long they had been out there.



Tradition, cultural restrictions, or the displeased, indignant, self-righteous, 


fighting-mad, irate behavior of a few sneering scoffers on the sidelines, did


 not discourage Jesus. Jesus made the most of every opportunity to minister to 


souls that were callused, in despair, and thirsting for truth. 



Jesus was criticized for His actions,


 but what prophet ever lived without 



criticism???




Jesus' example shows us that we should not allow worldly barriers, such as 


geographical limits to particular countries, communities, religions, or traditions to 


dictate whom we share the Good News with. 


Jesus promised:


The Spirit will empower us to be God's witnesses.
