Who We Are
"Jodi and Corey have changed my life not only as people I can trust and love like my own family but as mentors and spiritual guidance. They have taken me out of a dark place and gave me light and purpose. They have saved my life literally. Without them I would not be alive today. They taught me how to cope and deal with my past as well as help others and the wisdom they provided were amazing. They do this not because of money but it’s their calling and they love it. To them it’s not about the money yes it’s nice but it’s about changing and saving and helping people." - Xavier

What we Believe
The sole basis of our belief is the Bible.
-We believe it to be inspired by God and without error, and the final authority on all matters for faith and life. As the Bible teaches, there is one God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – each co-equal in power and glory. John 1: 1-5
-We believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. Genesis 1
-We believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary. Matthew 1:18-25
-We believe Jesus Christ suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended into the dead. Matthew 27:32-56
-We believe on the third day Jesus Christ rose again and walked among his followers. John 21:1
-We believe Jesus Christ ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come to judge the living and the dead. Matthew 24:44, Acts 1:9-12, Mark 16:9
-We believe in the Holy Spirit and the forgiveness of sins through the birth of the savior Jesus Christ. John 14:26
-We believe in the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. John 11:17-44
-We believe we were created by God genetic male and genetic female without error in His image. Genesis 1:26
-We believe marriage is between one man and one woman in a covenant with God as the head. Genesis 2:24
-We believe in our world we have an enemy working hard at getting and keeping us off the path to life.
The thief comes only in order to steal, kill, and destroy. I have come in order that you might have life--life in all its fullness. John 10:10
Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8
For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. -Ephesians 6:12
We stand on God’s Word and truth as the authority in our lives and all our teachings are derived from the Word of God. We believe Satan is our enemy with the sole purpose is to destroy causing us to questions God's life breathing character and essence of Love. We believe that everyone has a story and in that story brokenness keeps people off the path of following God's light. We also believe that as a result of the fall, defects of humanity plague us. It is in that we love people, all of humanity and believe we are created to Love God and Love His creation with our gifts gently guiding them to the path of life finding their identity and purpose as His children freeing them from darkness.
