Current human wisdom believes that all forms of spirituality are essentially the same. Such a belief seems logical. Without question it’s very convenient. And it’s dead wrong.
Never forget how radical the message of the Gospel really is. It’s not about our getting up to God. It’s about God coming down to us. It’s not about making ourselves holy before God. It’s about God living a holy life in our place. And it’s not about cleansing ourselves of our wrongs. It’s about God going to the cross to wash our sins away.
When it comes to human reason versus the Gospel, the Gospel wins every time. Thank God.

Helping Families Thrive
Focus on the Family is a global Christian ministry dedicated to helping families thrive. We provide help and resources for couples to build healthy marriages that reflect God’s design, and for parents to raise their children according to morals and values grounded in biblical principles.
We’re here to come alongside families with relevance and grace at each stage of their journey. We support families as they seek to teach their children about God and His beautiful design for the family, protect themselves from the harmful influences of culture and equip themselves to make a greater difference in the lives of those around them.
No matter who you are, what you’re going through or what challenges your family may be facing, we’re here to help. With practical resources - like our 1-800 Family Help line, counseling and websites – we’re committed to providing trustworthy, biblical guidance and support.

Charles F. Stanley is the founder of In Touch Ministries and a New York Times best-selling author. While his teaching is transmitted throughout the world to millions of people, Dr. Stanley has been said to demonstrate a practical, keen awareness of people's needs and provide Christ-centered, biblically-based principles for everyday life.
Dr. Stanley’s motivation is best represented by the truth found in Acts 20:24, “Life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about God's mighty kindness and love.” This is because, as he says, “It is the Word of God and the work of God that changes people’s lives.”

The story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37) gives a clear picture of God’s desire for us to help those in desperate need wherever we find them. After describing how the Samaritan rescued a hurting man whom others had passed by, Jesus told His hearers, “Go and do likewise.” For over 40 years, Samaritan’s Purse has done our utmost to follow Christ’s command by going to the aid of the world’s poor, sick, and suffering. We are an effective means of reaching hurting people in countries around the world with food, medicine, and other assistance in the Name of Jesus Christ. This, in turn, earns us a hearing for the Gospel, the Good News of eternal life through Jesus Christ.
As our teams work in crisis areas of the world, people often ask, “Why did you come?” The answer is always the same: “We have come to help you in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.” Our ministry is all about Jesus—first, last, and always. As the Apostle Paul said, “For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake” (2 Corinthians 4:5, NIV).
Samaritan’s Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God’s love through His Son, Jesus Christ. The organization serves the church worldwide to promote the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Christians Reviving America's ValuEs (CRAVE) is a National Not-for-Profit (501c3) Organization founded by Pastor Don Swarthout who defines the organization: "We CRAVE Revival in our Churches and the Restoration of Godly Principles in America".
One of the goals of CRAVE is to educate Christians and Americans of the effort to take away their rights. It is also the goal of Christians Reviving America's ValuEs to stand for, defend, and revive those principles, on behalf of Christians and Americans, that have made the United States of America the beacon of truth and liberty that it is today.
CRAVE began in 1999 from the Lawsuit over The Ten Commandments which took place in Southeastern Kentucky. In late 1999 began CRAVE by filing the necessary paper work with The Internal Revenue Service to become a 501c for income tax purposes. CRAVE was approved for tax exempt status very soon.
The purpose of CRAVE was to restore the Constitution to America and to teach our children in school to recognize God, God's Values so that you can get into Heaven when you die and will have learned to recognize American Exceptionalism.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
Church Alliance members should be in general agreement and be able to certify that their own church’s Statement of Faith (or similar document) does not materially conflict with the following portions of the Alliance Defending Freedom statement of faith:
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity and humanity of 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, in His present rule as Head of the Church and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe that all those who die in God’s grace through faith are assured eternal salvation; those who die in a state of sin and unbelief suffer the punishment of Hell.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, with equality across racial, gender, and class differences.
Church Alliance members must be in specific agreement with the following portions of the Alliance Defending Freedom statement of faith.
We believe that God immutably creates each person as male or female, which reflects the image and nature of God. Rejecting one's biological sex rejects the created image of God.
We believe God designed marriage as a unique conjugal relationship joining one man and one woman in a single, exclusive, life-long union. God intends sexual intimacy to only occur between a man and a woman joined in marriage.
We believe all forms of sexual immorality are sinful and offensive to God.
We believe God endows all human life with inherent dignity at every stage of development and it must be respected and protected from conception to natural death. Thus, the unjustified, intentional taking of human life before or after birth is sinful and offensive to God.
