The big 3 (A.C.E.)
Our focus is on three areas to help those who struggle with lust or who have been impacted by lustful pursuits.
Advocacy Groups – We believe most of our problems come from our self sufficiency. So we make available group times to help us develop the grace of humility in seeking God’s will for our lives, for greater joy, to the glory of God. We believe this happens in community with others. The scriptures warn of isolating ourselves so we seek to start living with others in our lives. God’s help manifest in community.
Counseling – We understand that issues come up that need special attention. So we offer, through a suggested donation to the ministry, religious Biblical counseling. We believe that wisdom through counsel is imperative for our spiritual growth. We hope to meet that need when needed. Religious Counseling is also a part of discipleship. Biblical discipleship is a discipline of a believer which only ends upon death. We will forever be working on being like Christ through a disciplined life.
Education – What do you think of when you think of sex? Understanding the theology of sex is important to us. So we make it our aim to grow in our understanding of this topic through the lens of the Bible, which we believe is God’s revelation to mankind. Theology is a big part of what we do. We are constantly learning and helping others learn the Biblical concept of God, and His work in the world and our lives.
Our groups are to be less in addiction terminology or psychological language and more Biblical principle focused. The reasoning is to minister to all the people that will attend. We know for certain that as we walk through the Bible, we rely on the Holy Spirit, through the inspired Word, to minister to the people, right where they are at! The Spirit does a better job then we could ever do on fixing people. To demonstrate our reliance on the Spirit, we teach through the Bible in our groups. We may or may not use a curriculum to fulfill such a mission. But whatever is being used, our groups are focused on Bible study and language. The difference between our groups and others is that those who attend such a group, admit by coming, that they desire to learn what the Spirit of God has to say to us concerning our sexual lives, and we are willing to listen to it. They may not agree with it or necessarily like it, but they are there in hopes of transforming into it.
