The Word and Prayer and Lower Lights Ministry Mission Statement
As believers … whose faith and hope are in God…
We have in obedience to the truth purified our souls for a sincere love of the brethren – striving to love one another from the heart.
We are devoting ourselves to the ministries of the word and prayer, striving to both speak and serve out of the power which God supplies, that we may proclaim Christ, warning all we meet and teaching all we can. For we have been called for this purpose – to make disciples and equip the saints for works of service so the body of Christ may be built up, with each member functioning in a way as to cause the body of Christ to grow and build itself up in love.
We do this by looking to Christ our example and encouraging believers to hold fast to the Word of Life so they may shine as lights in the world. We pursue love, the goal of our instruction, and are pressing on to the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
We encourage all believers to pray without ceasing, laying hold of that for which Christ laid hold of them; and to not shrink back but to have faith to the persevering of the soul. And to live by the same standard to which they have attained. Counting all things loss for the sake of Christ, we accept the ministry of reconciliation given to us from God, Who through Christ reconciled us to Himself!
Freely we have received – freely we will give!
