We believe these things about men:
We see men not as they are, but as they will be when Jesus Christ is truly Lord of their lives. (Heb 12:2; Rom 12:1-2)
We see men who have the mind of Christ, who know their purpose in life, and who make all their decisions with the gospel of Jesus Christ in full view. (Col 1:19-23)
We see spiritually hungry men who are eager to grow to become the men of God they know God created them to be. (2 Peter 3:18; 2 Tim 3:16-17)
We see men who understand what it means to be a man of God, and who are secure in that identity, knowing their adequacy comes from Him. (Eph 3:14-19)
We see men who are not insecure or fearful to embrace their role as spiritual leaders with their wives, children and in their church. (1 Tim 1:5)
We see men banding together to finish strong by helping each other reach the “1 Timothy 4:7” finish line. (1 Cor 1:10)
We see men who are understand what it means to be free in the grace of Christ and are helping other men become free as well. (Eph 2:1-10)
We see men who are focused, prepared, on their guard, and standing firm in the faith. (1 Peter 5:6-10)
We see men who spend much time in the presence of Jesus Christ, and out of their intimate relationship with Him, exercise their God-given gifts and passions in the service of their local church. (James 4:8; Heb 10:23-25)
We see men influencing their world for Christ because they have spent much time with Him and have become like Him. (Acts 2:41; 4:4; 4:13)
