our purpose

Antinomianism is heresy (false teaching/living). Anti means “against.” Nomo’s means “law,” (in Greek). So the literal translation is “Against the law.” With regard to Scripture, Antinomianism means being autonomous “self-law,” or self-governing. If someone is autonomous then he is not subject to God’s law. Is that what the grace of God insinuates? Freedom from the law?

Apostle Paul’s says, “No!” 3 For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, 4 so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. 5 For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. Romans 8:3-5

The natural born human being is born sinful and under condemnation of the law without the ability of obeying it perfectly (from the heart) or paying the price to satisfy God’s demands and placate His wrath that we would be cleaned and forgiven. Christ did that for us and now we have been given new minds, hearts and the Spirit that we may freely enjoy obedience to God by obeying His Law.

The Ten Commandments are not to be viewed as an oppressive weight (like legalists who try to earn grace by the law, and antinomians who ignore the law all together), but rather they are a privilege and a Holy way of life that represents the goodness of God. God receives glory by our joyful obedience to Him. or reach people with the life-giving message of Jesus that they might become fully devoted followers of Christ.”

Our statement of purpose is based on two teachings of Jesus: MATTHEW 28: 19-20 NIV, MARK 16:15-17, 20 NIV. Now we would go out in all nations and make disciples.
