i have recently come in contact with an organization called
Living Waters Ministry.
i am very impressed with the people and the program.
Put simply, Living Waters is a community-based, Christ-centred discipleship ministry that exists to help people find hope and live life through experiencing Jesus in their relationships and sexuality. Living Waters Canada is part of the Living Waters Global network.
it may not be for everyone, but what i have learned so far from the group has already been incredibly helpful.
here is what they believe (from their website)
Founded upon biblical principles, Living Waters adheres to the following beliefs, which make up our statement of faith.
•We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God, the final authority of doctrine, reproof, correction and instruction in right living.
•We believe in one God, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
•We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, fully human and fully God, only begotten Son of the Father. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and lived a sinless life. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, buried and rose physically from the dead. He ascended to the right hand of the Father and will come again in power and glory.
•We believe that faith alone in Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord frees us from the mastery of sin, and its consequences of death and eternal damnation. He assumed the penalty of death Himself, and enables us to live out of His resurrected life unto eternity.
•We believe the Holy Spirit carries out this work of renewal in our lives, empowering us to grow in loving union with our Heavenly Father and to walk in obedience to His will.
•We believe that the church of Jesus Christ is formed of all those who know Him as their Saviour and Lord, regardless of denominational beliefs.
