About

We believe that our calling is to share what Martin Luther boldly proclaimed to his generation: that God intends to make of us a “race of Christs’.” Having had, from the Holy Spirit, the revelation of our personal union with Christ, we see it as our commission to share this liberating awareness with the entire Church around the world.

Our foundation is the Cross of Jesus Christ. We wholeheartedly embrace the evangelical position and doctrine as set out in the Apostles’ Creed--emphasizing everyone’s need for salvation, which is only available through the atoning blood of Jesus Christ.

We believe that Paul clearly teaches that there are two aspects to the gospel of Jesus Christ:

  • To proclaim the saving Gospel to those without Christ.
  • to proclaim the mystery of the Gospel—“which is Christ in you the hope of glory,” to those of us who are already Christians.

We see ourselves as a two-fold ministry (to the lost as well as to the saved) although, our outreach is to be primarily to born-again Christians who desire to move on from “the elementary teaching about Christ,” to full maturity in Christ.

We believe that maturity is only attained as a person becomes aware by Spirit revelation of “the mystery once hidden but now made manifest...which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Along with this revelation of who we contain, we also see the truth concerning the human vessel. We understand that the human doesn’t have a nature of his own, but instead only derives the nature of the Spirit who indwelling us. Therefore, we humans are not an independent, self-operating-self and never have been.  We were a vessel containing Satan, and now through the Cross, we are vessels containing Christ.  

Christ, Our Life Ministries is dedicated to bring an expanded awareness of this mystery of the gospel to the Twenty First-century Church of Christ. We purpose to share those truths that enable Christians to know who they are in Christ, and build them up in the most holy faith. This faith will give unto them the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. “That the eyes of their understanding be enlightened that they may know what is the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints” (Ephesians 1:17-18).

The outgrowth of this revelation will ultimately manifest fruit in the form of a life lived for others. As God so loved the world that He gave His Son, so we too will give our lives for others that the world might experience that abundant life which only comes as a person knows inner “completeness” and “Perfection” in Christ. With Paul we say, “We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, that we may present every man complete in Christ” (Col. 1:28)
