Heart Of Strength
Who We Are:
We are a small band of fairly ordinary guys, who have been deeply impacted by the love of God our Father. We are honored and delighted to reach out to other men, to share how God has set our hearts free and how he can do the same for them as well.
Heart Of Strength is an informal ministry -- that is, we are not a 501c(3) charity ... at least not yet. But, since we run it on a shoe-string, we are open to donations towards scholarshiping men to our weekend events.
What We Believe:
As followers of Jesus, we hold to the classic creeds of the early church.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, only, infallible, inerrant, authoritative Word of God.
We believe in the one true God, the sovereign, eternal creator of all that exists, both seen and unseen. God is eternally existent in three persons, yet one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in his virgin birth, in his sinless life, in his miracles, in his vicarious and atoning death through his shed blood, in his bodily resurrection, in his ascension to the right hand of the Father and in his personal return in power and glory.
We believe God created mankind in his image. Adam and Eve, the first human beings, chose to rebel against God and go their own way. As a result, all of mankind became separated from God, the image of God in man distorted, he became subject to the power of the devil, and the sinful nature passed on to all their progeny. Because of original sin, unregenerate human beings are incapable of pleasing or commending themselves to God. The only remedy for mankindís pitiful predicament is redemption through faith in Jesus Christ.
We believe that when a person exercises saving faith in Christ he passes immediately out of spiritual death into spiritual life, and from the old creation into the new, a new nature and a new heart imparted; being justified freely by grace, accepted before the Father according as Christ his son is accepted, loved as Christ is loved, having his place and portion as linked to him and one with him forever.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they who are saved unto the resurrection of life and they who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
