Sacred Impact Ministries
Sacred Impact Ministries is passionate about reaching out into our neighborhoods and communities to develop relationships which impact and transform lives through sharing and living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
It is our deep desire to see the Church, the Body of Christ, connect with each other across racial, ethnic, age and cultural lines. We believe we need to be intentional in the effort to tear down walls that separate us and work to build bridges that connect and unite us. By doing this, lives will be transformed, souls will be saved, The Church will be edified and strengthened, and God will be glorified.
Our classes are meant to challenge you in a positive way, to strengthen and empower you by dealing directly with the realities of life while utilizing the tools of truth and encouragement from God's Word.
Getting the Word Out
The Church initially began as a multi-cultural, multi-lingual, multi-ethnic body of Spirit-filled believers. Read Acts chapter 2. So this idea is nothing new and it didn't come from the mind of man....it's a "God idea" which has been around since the most ancient of times. It is up to us in the 21st century to be faithful to what God has already done and to restore and maintain what God started at Pentecost. We have an awesome opportunity to actually live the lifestyle of Pentecost, not only spiritually but also practically, in our day to day relationships. The miracle of Pentecost was a mandate for connecting and honoring people of diverse cultures and traditions, interacting with one another in a dynamic way while honoring the Lord Jesus Christ.
"You were all called to travel on the same road and in the same direction, so stay together, both outwardly and inwardly. You have one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who rules over all, works through all, and is present in all. Everything you are and think and do is permeated with Oneness." (Ephesians 4:4-6 MSG)
We believe in community - real community - as part of God's plan for mankind. We believe in connecting and reaching out - beyond our comfort zone. Moving beyond the familiar - into the unfamiliar. We are intentional about acknowledging those things that make each of us unique individuals. While at the same time we understand that the same uniqueness brings us together as One Body with many members. What the Apostle Paul wrote to the Galatians still stands today:
"In Christ’s family there can be no division into Jew and non-Jew, slave and free, male and female. Among us you are all equal. That is, we are all in a common relationship with Jesus Christ. Also, since you are Christ’s family, then you are Abraham’s famous “descendant,” heirs according to the covenant promises."
(Galatians 3:28 MSG)
Here's the Apostle Paul's phenomenal description of the transformed life of a believer in Christ:
"Because of this decision we don’t evaluate people by what they have or how they look. We looked at the Messiah that way once and got it all wrong, as you know. We certainly don’t look at him that way anymore. Now we look inside, and what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life is gone; a new life burgeons! Look at it! All this comes from the God who settled the relationship between us and him, and then called us to settle our relationships with each other. God put the world square with himself through the Messiah, giving the world a fresh start by offering forgiveness of sins. God has given us the task of telling everyone what He is doing. We’re Christ’s representatives. God uses us to persuade men and women to drop their differences and enter into God’s work of making things right between them. We’re speaking for Christ Himself now: Become friends with God; he’s already a friend with you." (2 Corinthians 5:16-20 MSG)
We are called to live as new people in Christ - to live as one body with many members - to live in unity.
This is the heart of Sacred Impact Ministries
and the core of all we do.
Christ's Love Command
“Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way I loved you, you love one another. This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples—when they see the love you have for each other.”
John 13:35 The Message (MSG)
