Vision & Values- Advancing The Kingdom

One of the values at Restoration is to advance His Kingdom. We believe this “value” is also applicable to all Christians everywhere as it is the “commission” from our King to all followers of Christ. The most effective, and impactful, way is to be transparent to those around us at all times while constantly making Jesus the focus and center of our lives. This can, and should, be done through the various people we interact with on a regular basis.

The Assurance of Our Salvation- Identity and Knowing Jesus

As we come to know Jesus more, as God, King of the universe, creator and sustainer of everything, and Savior of the world, we find our security and identity in Him (Heb.1:1). Knowing Jesus, gives our lives purpose and identity. We are loved, accepted, called, chosen by Him, not defined by our past, or the things that have happened to us. So instead of asking “Who am I?” our question should be, “Jesus, who are you?”
