With so many things threatening to keep us apart, we as sisters in Christ choose to unite together to learn from God's word, to worship, and to get to know one another better. We are organizing this event to provide women a place to come together to be challenged, refreshed, and supported in their faith journey.
Through relationships, we grow in grace as we apply the truth of who God is, what He has done, and what He requires of us. We strive to foster a culture of honest, transparent, authentic, Spirit-filled relationships. We desire to be a community of faith that accepts each other despite our differences, shortcomings, and struggles. This attitude of acceptance encourages spiritual growth in ways that reconcile and restore rather than judge and condemn. From this environment of God-honoring relationships will flow the worship of God from grateful hearts and the desire to reach people with the richness that is life in Jesus Christ.
is a person (not merely personal) and jealously desires to be properly identified. God has acted in history in order that we may know that the Lord God of Israel is the one and only God. He is the source and creator of all that exists and His character and will determine what is good. We are able to recognize many characteristics of God in Scripture. These characteristics are properly understood from the multiple contexts in which they are expressed. God is both transcendent above creation and imminently involved in it. God has life within Himself. He is a spirit. He is omnipotent, omnipresent and eternal. God is just, holy, loving, merciful, faithful, and true. God is the creator, deliverer, redeemer, king, and Lord of everyone and everything. Beyond our comprehension, the one God exists eternally as three persons (Trinity): God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The Godhead is one in substance yet three distinct persons. Each person has the same nature and attributes, but they may take different roles in a given activity. They are equal in position and deserving of homage.
the Messiah, having eternally been fully God, also became fully human without giving up His deity. He is the exact representation of the nature of God. Jesus did this in obedience to the Father, taking the form of a servant. Jesus was born of a virgin and lived a perfectly holy life. He was tempted in all respects as we are yet never sinned. He died on a cross, was buried and came to life after three days effectively accomplishing a substitutionary atonement for the sin of humankind. Jesus then ascended to the right hand of the Father, exalted as Head overall. He serves as our High Priest and advocates before the throne of God. Just as He ascended, He will again return physically to reign on the earth.
is eternally God and was active in God’s plans prior to the ministry of Jesus. After Jesus’ ascension, the Holy Spirit was sent by Christ to believers at Pentecost. By His baptism, the Spirit unites all believers to Christ. The Holy Spirit bears witness of Jesus. He also convicts mankind of sin, righteousness, and judgment. He regenerates believers and bears witness with their spirit that they are the children of God.
General, Special, and Scripture | Because of sin, humankind is separated from God and dependent on His mercy to reveal Himself. God and His truth are apparent in part through creation, which reflects His imprint (general revelation). Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, was the fullest revelation of God communicated to humankind (special revelation). The full significance of both these forms of revelation is mediated to us through the special revelation of the Bible. The Spirit of God moved in some to write His message. This message is the full word of God, delivered in the words and styles of people.
We are a gathering of women of faith from a number of different Grand Rapids area churches who desire to connect with other women who are committed to Christ.
We would like to grow in our relationship with God, with one another and with our community.
