WHO WE ARE:
We in Abundant Grace Ministries exist to be a family of healthy churches, passionately committed to Jesus Christ and fulfilling his purposes.
WHAT MOTIVATES US:
We desire to be Christ Exalting.
AGM CORE VALUES:
The sufficiency of Christ’s love, grace, and work to every human need.
Our Theme Verse:
Acts 4:33 - “And with great power the apostles were giving witness to the resurrection of the
Lord Jesus, and abundant grace was upon them all.”
To model, demonstrate and minister the life of His Body.
Our Heart Cry:
“…we would see Jesus.” John 12:21
Our Presentation Of Jesus:
Luke 4:18 - “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captive and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are downtrodden.”
We desire to combine the truth of deeper life and the filling of the Holy Spirit to lovingly equip and release people to fruitfulness and thus actively actively
engage in the work that Christ has left for us to do.
Our Worship Purpose & Vision:
To draw the hearts of the congregation into restoration, healing and vital relationship with Christ through worship that is prophetic, intercessory, releasing and sacrificial. Such worship will provide experience and exposure to the Lord and ignite the hearts of the worshipper.
Our purpose is to nurture and develop a worship team to live, model, educate and exhort a transforming worship experience. We desire to create an atmosphere that embraces His Presence, humbles our hearts and extends His love to our congregation and into other churches.
Therefore we, encourage people to experience and live a spirit–filled life through worship, teaching, and body ministry. We minister to release andempower men and women, young and old, to discover their lifetime vision and reach their God – given destiny. We also invite everyone to enter into the fullness of God’s provision through spiritual gifts, healing and ongoing work of deliverance.
The vision of the Abundant Grace Ministries, a network of Christian Churches, is to provide the NE Ohio communities with a church experience of nurture, growth, counsel, discipleship, relationship and the vitality of Body life through a home church or small church network. We envision the application of “equipping and releasing” others for the work of ministry to bless and enrich other local churches and the community at large.
The purpose for the Abundant Grace Ministries is to minister to those desiring an alternative church lifestyle emphasizing Body life and ministry. This would be accomplished by developing a network of home and/or small churches under the direction of church planters and leadership. We also desire to bless and enrich the independent and denominational local church by any means possible.
Philosophy Of Ministry:
It is our desire to be a caring, diverse and sensitive church focused on quality reproduction in the body. Our hope is to be a safe haven for all people to experience the encouragement and healing of a healthy priesthood of believers. These objectives are to be realized through our commitment to equip, empower and release believers to capture thevision of God’s destiny for their life and ministry.
Statement of Faith:
We hold a high view of the Bible and openly embrace the application of its truth for our life and guidance.
We believe all people without Jesus Christ are lost and that they are high in God’s priority and must be in ours.
We believe in planting and empowering home and local churches in our community and beyond.
We desire to reproduce ministers and ministries.
- Being: on the cutting edge of ministry.
- Balanced: in doctrine and conduct.
- Blessing: other local churches and ministries by any means available.
We envision a bright future in the next millennium and desire the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to be trans-ethnic and trans-cultural in our outreach and relationships.
We desire to experience the Lord Jesus as Savior, Sanctifier, Healer and Coming King by mobilizing community-focused congregations for active participation and involvement in Body life.
We prioritize the need for meaningful and substantial relationships of honesty and integrity.
We believe that the method ordained of God for the support and spread of His cause is by giving of tithes and free-will offerings.
