How We Will Lead
“How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?” (Romans 10:14)
M46 is built around the idea of practicing a better way, together, so that all might hear and see God’s transformative power and experience His healing love.
We believe that to be a disciple of Jesus of Nazareth is to practice being with Jesus, becoming like Jesus, becoming a friend of Jesus, and “doing” like Jesus did. The process of discipleship is to be conformed into the image of Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus commands us to love others as He has loved us and to love the Lord with all our minds, souls, hearts, and strength. Our dream is that as we practice living a better way, according to His commands, our lives, families, businesses, and communities will be transformed, ultimately bringing heaven to earth.
As His organization, our heart is to proclaim Jesus to the nations, fulfilling His instructions to:
To share the gospel and our testimonies to create new testimonies
To make disciples by practicing (or journeying with) Jesus together in community
To demonstrate His love for one another, so the world will know we are His true followers
To become a community of “disciple makers”, sent out ones, who disciple future “disciple makers”
We do so by:
Sharing the word of our testimony, the testimony of what Jesus has done in our lives for Him to do it again and again! (Rev 12:11, Rev 19:10)
Loving others well. (John 13:34-35)
Proclaiming the good news of the Kingdom. (Matthew 10:7-8)
Proclaiming the power of God to restore people, families, communities and nations. (Malachi 4:6, Isaiah 61:1-3)
Building healthy discipleship communities. (John 13:35, Matthew 28:19-20)
In the words of Jesus, our mission is:
“A new command I give you: Love one another.As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:34-35)
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20)
“As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.” (Matthew 10:7-8)
Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil. Our mission is rooted in the love of God and a dedication to usher in the transformative power of the Holy Spirit to set the captives free, heal the brokenhearted, and plant seeds of joy and hope, turning the hearts of parents to their children, and children to their parents. God’s Kingdom is in the hearts of His people. His Kingdom is family. Transformed hearts. Transformed family. Restoration of all!
Jesus came to seek and save all that was lost and to restore the Kingdom of God, on earth as it is in heaven. We fully believe that choosing to live the better way results in redemption, restoration, and transformation: the abundant life of our union with Jesus.
The Power of a Testimony
M46 exists to share our testimonies. There is a difference between a biography and a testimony. A biography is about me. A testimony is about Jesus, the story of what God has done and proclaims the greatness of God. Born out of our personal stories of tragedy and extreme losses, we’ve been redeemed by Jesus and transformed into testimonies of Jesus. We tried life our way. Then we did it Jesus’ way, a better way. His way is so different from anything the world has to offer.
As we share our testimonies, we release the power of God for transformation to be released in the lives of others. The word testimony comes from the Hebrew root word “odot” (עֵדוּת) which essentially means “do it again.” Every time we share our testimony of God’s faithfulness in our lives, we welcome the power of God to do it again in the lives of others.
This is just the beginning. We are so excited about all that God is going to do through M46 Ministries. Pray for us as we embark on this new adventure! Grateful for you!
