A PRESENTATION OF MY SPIRITUAL JOURNEY WITH SOME VERY SPECIAL FRIENDS!!!
It is her sincere desire to be a global ambassador for Jesus Christ; that she represents Him well, and that all she does is pleasing in His sight, in His service, and according to His will. Her prayer for you:
"My prayer for you is that he blesses you immeasurably more than all you can ever ask or imagine according to his power that is at work within you" ~ Ephesians 3:20 ... AMEN!
Jesus is the Son of God, sent to reconcile us back to God; was born, crucified, and resurrected with all power by God and is returning again. We are to also be reconciled with God, within ourselves and then with one another.
God has imparted in each of us a ministry to be shared with the world, that is tailor-made according to what He has purposed each of us to do and that it takes the shape and form in many ways and is organic and dynamic. I am committed to assisting others in bringing to fruition what that purpose is according to God.
I believe that planning is imperative to fulfilling the mission and vision with the guidance and direction of our Advocate the Holy Spirit – to encourage others and assist them in writing the vision and making it plain.
I believe that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God and that it is the road map to a fulling life on this side and the key to eternal life and that preaching and teaching, helps spiritual growth and development are all contained in His Word.
I believe that there should be evidence of our Christian faith by our actions modeling Jesus to leave the world better that we found it by sharing our faith; by both addressing tangible as well as spiritual needs and ministering without hesitation or complication.
To share the Gospel of Jesus Christ locally and globally through preaching, teaching and equipping others with the spiritual tools for establishing a personal relationship with God for abundant living.
To create a ministry that is practical and accessible for ALL people to come to know Christ using various mediums as a way to spread the gospel without walls, restrictions, or red tape.
To be a global ambassador for Jesus Christ; representing Him well, and that all that is done is pleasing in His sight, in His service, and according to His will.
