Graduation

We trust God with His UNRELENTING guidance. 

Guideline #1: We face our FEARS. 

7 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7; ESV) 

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” Nelson Mandela

Unwavering trust is a rare and precious thing because it often demands a degree of courage that borders on the heroic. Brennan Manning, Ruthless Trust

Guideline #2: We forget our FAILURES. 

12 Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. 13 Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:12-14; ESV) 

Guideline #3: We follow our FAITH. 

12 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. (Hebrews 12:1-3; ESV)

We trust God with His UNREMITTING guidance.  

Vision: Engaging the world with God’s love as equipped and empower followers of Christ.
