Mission Statement


Priority 1 Ministries seeks to disciple, prepare, and challenge born-again youth and adults through ministry opportunities: that will provide training, encourage them to cultivate a more intimate walk with the Lord, and enlarge their missionary vision; to serve the Lord in a missionary setting; and, to seek every available means of leading people of all ages to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Description


Training and disciplining Christ-followers to go into all the world and share the hope of the gospel is done through short-term international missions (both youth and adult) and urban outreach teams. These trips are not only to reach the lost but to also challenge and encourage participants to be life-long disciples of Christ. Previous participants have given testimony that Priority 1 gives young people an opportunity to make an eternal difference in the world now, and gives adults a second chance for God’s call on their life. Many adults feel they have missed God’s best for their lives, and now have opportunity to make a difference. People are able to realize that God wants to and can use them if they make themselves available to Him. The Body of Christ has many gifts and God wants to use those gifts because they all are needed in some way everywhere around the world. God does not look for ability as much as He looks for availability.

Organizational Statement of Faith


Statement of Faith We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
