Christ’s life, death, and resurrection provided for us forgiveness of sins (Eph 1:7; Col 1:14), full righteousness (Rom 3:22), and union with Christ (Col 3:3, Eph 2:6)
The Scriptures: The Bible presents a complete understanding of the human condition (Genesis 6:5, Romans 3:23; 5:12) and instructs us in our life ‘in Christ’. The scriptures are the source as we lead others in soul care.
His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire. For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins. – 2 Peter 1:3-9
The good news of the gospel, through the transforming power of the Holy Spirit, is our only hope for change. The good news that all our sins have been forgiven frees us from guilt, shame, and fear and leads us to live a life of love. Therefore all of our soul care is about continually giving the message of the gospel to those for whom we are caring.
Being created in the image of the Trinitarian God means being made for community. We don’t hold out hope for ongoing change outside of living in community with others. Our goal is to get individuals integrated into loving community (Community Group) where they can receive regular care from Christian brothers and sisters.
It is our hope that all will understand their life as a part of God’s mission to declare and display His love to the world. We want all those we care for to be involved in that mission by acknowledging their story as a story of God’s grace and participating in the declaring and displaying of His love for us. (Matthew 5:13-16)
Our Hope for you in Soul Care
Our desire is to walk with you and see God give you a deeper love and trust in the completed redemptive work of Jesus Christ. We are certainly concerned about external circumstances and will address those because they are connected to heart issues, but our aim is to continually turn you away from yourself and toward your Savior. We hope you see Jesus not only as your Savior but also as your Healer in your present circumstances.
