Summary of Our Belief, Center Doctrine, and One Hermeneutic
I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. - Paul the Apostle
Our desire is to see Jesus and His work on the Cross the center of everything we say, read, work, and live. Not having our own enticing words full of our own wisdom, but that our lives would be a demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. (See Colossians 2)
Summary of Our Faith - Belief lived out.
To live, preach, warn, teach, the mighty freeing truth of Jesus Christ and him crucified, that in all things, He would be preeminent in everyone and everything.
(1 Corinthians 2:2), (Colossians 1:27-28), (John 16:14-15), (Colossians 1:18).
The Freeing Awesome Gospel
“Crucified Living” is based off of the Dead/Living Christian life. True Christianity is based on a new life, a new man, being born again. Galations 2:20 says, “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” Romans 6 tells us to Reckon Ourselves Dead to sin. The word “Reckon” is an accounting term, it’s like reckoning money in your account even if you can’t see it yet. Reckoning the Gospel of Jesus is done by the power of God’s mighty Grace, through Faith. We walk by faith, not sight. It is our desire to see a generation ignite on fire for Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit, and the preaching of Truth.
I have been blessed with the opportunity to be discipled by men built mighty in the Spirit, who hearts cry is to declare Jesus Christ and see Him glorified. The ultimate goal for this website is to lift high the powerful truths of the Bible causing lives lived out in absolute surrender, and thereby lifting high the one who the Scripture speaks of, Jesus Christ. (John 5:39)
“Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. – Philippians 2:5-11
Mission – Worship, the outflow of Holiness
The extreme need in Haiti has been something that has been pressing upon my heart this year. Right now, our practical plan for this mission is in a praying and waiting holding pattern. I (Andrew) am currently evolved with a ministry that is working with a Haitian Orphanage and am having some involvement in that respect. But right now, we are seeking God’s face in this Mission, while praying for the body of Christ in Haiti. Pure religion (or Worship) and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. James 1:27
Tent Making – The Store
Crucified Living is legally a (DBA) business. We have an online store where we sell t-shirts, hoodies, and other resources. This is not where we “sell” the gospel. We are not wanting to cause a stumbling block to the bride of Christ in anyway. For the Word of God is free to all and the transforming power of the work of the cross is for all. The “Christian T-Shirt” side of the store is simply a desire to see high quality t-shirts with unfiltered truth published. So, the store is one of the channels where God has provided earthly necessities. I don’t need a penny God hasn’t given, so don’t feel obligated to buy or give anything.
Giving - The Muller Model
I believe and am walking in faith that God will for eternity supply all my needs, financially and spiritually. By God’s empowering grace I am honored to follow this same financial principles of men of faith like my personal hero, George Muller. Donations are accepted, but only under strict leading that it is God who is asking you to give. More info on Giving here
Please join me in prayer as a brother of Our Lord Jesus Christ. I pray, that God would allow me to wash the feet of His Bride, feed the starving, care for the fatherless, widows, and afflicted. Free those in bondage to sin by the message of the Gospel. That my life would be summed up in having my blood spent defending His Name, Reputation, Character, and Truth.
