Men’s Ministry Mission Statement:
The Men’s Ministry exists to help men come together to that “solemn assembly” in worship of the Lord. Too often one of the hardest things for men to do is to really connect with other men on more than just a semi-superficial basis. To move beyond the subjects of business, sports cars/motorcycles, or whatever, is all too rare…even in Christian men. The Men’s Ministry exists to help men connect as brothers in the Lord and to create opportunities to learn and grow in worship of our Great King! (Romans 12:1-2, 2 Peter 3:18).
As the men of Living Truth, our ultimate desire is to be "Men of God." The purpose of the Men's Ministry is to do all that we can to achieve that goal. Proverbs 27:17 says “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” We want to help each other grow in love, honor, faithfulness, patience, and understanding by the study of God's Word. We want to encourage and be encouraged by one another's faith. We want to become better servants of our Lord, to be better husbands, fathers, grandfathers, sons, friends, employers and employees. We want to support one another when we struggle, or even fall. And we want to be beacons of our Savior’s handiwork in our everyday lives.
As men we also recognize we are in a battle. There is a “war” that is being waged. There is a spiritual battle (Ephesians 6:10-13), a battle for ideas and worldviews, a battle for the hearts and souls of men and women, boys and girls – our family, friends and neighbors. There are many who have been wounded in this battle and need healing and restoration.
One writer said “We are surrounded by all kinds of ‘trumpet blasts’ of errors of all kinds, such as the view that all religions are the same, all gods are equal, and that it does not matter really what we believe, as long as we are sincere. Troops need a clear sound to engage the enemy.”
For if the trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare for battle? 1 Corinthians 14:8 NKJV
We want to fight for the right cause, the greatest cause, the Gospel – the cause of Christ. We exist to help each other “fight the good fight of faith” (1Timothy 6:12 A) and when it is all said and done we pray we can all say like Paul:
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing” (2 Timothy 4:7-8).
