Welcome to Grace For Life Ministries.
What is Grace? Imagine a great king leaving his castle and riding in his royal carriage to a nearby village where he observed how the commoners lived. While making his way through the streets, the people stopped and bowed to the king. But then, much to everyone's surprise, the king ordered his carriage to stop. He got out and walked over to a needy man who was without the means to improve his situation. The king bent down low and offered the man his hand to help him up. Then the king took the needy man into his carriage and to his castle where he made him a member of the royal family which guaranteed the poor man would never want again. This is grace. The Greek word for grace is charis. It means favour, blessing, or kindness. It is perfectly expressed when one chooses to stoop or bend down to help another up. This is what God has done for us. He has bent down to help us up because we hadn't the means to improve our spiritual situation. This is what makes grace so amazing. It is God's choice to love and rescue us.
Grace For Life Ministries exists to model, offer, and teach grace to others that their lives might literally change. It is our desire to extend favour, blessing, and kindness while reaching out to help people deal with situations they cannot or believe they cannot manage or be freed from. We want to help others find love, unconditional acceptance, freedom, and health that affects every relationship in their life.
To reach out and help people change by teaching them God's Word and how to apply God's grace to their life.
These people may be churched or unchurched. They may have great faith or none at all. What they all have in common is their desire for change.
We will reach, inspire, equip, and encourage people to learn truth, trust God, and live by God's grace through faith.
We will use four ministry platforms to accomplish our Mission:
Counselling to Pursue God's Grace
Teaching to Present God's Word
Speaking to Persuade God's People
Writing to Promote God's Truth
Knowing God, Loving People, and Teaching Grace.
Helping people believe and helping believers grow.
Inspiring people to learn God's Word and put their trust in Christ.
Teaching people to understand and adopt a biblical worldview.
Encouraging people to change by allowing God's truth and grace to guide what they believe and how to live.
