Tree Of Life Ministries is dedicated to teaching the Word and the Way of Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus Christ is "The Way, the Truth and the Life”, that God is one in being and person, and that through the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, we have found a definitive divine revelation, example and inspiration by which to live a just, loving, and peaceful life. We believe in one God, the Creator and Preserver of all things, in Jesus Christ, the Son of Man, whose teachings and life form the standard of our faith and practice, and in the Holy Spirit, the influence of God within us. We believe in the divine element in conscience, in free will and the responsibility that comes with it, in the inspiration and sanctity of God's Word, in forgiveness of sins, in God's universal love for all humankind, and in the advancement of all of humanity to faith, compassion, love, and happiness. As Jesus taught us, we are committed to social justice and equality for all of God's children.
We foster individual empowerment by encouraging all members to understand their personal relationship with God, to which we are all entitled. Within the community, our intent is to grow in faith and share our faith with the world around us and to have an "open door church", actively reaching out to and welcoming all persons. We will provide opportunities for service, worship, outreach and improvement in our community as well as the global community of which we are all a part.
Although Tree Of Life Ministries began as a local ministry it is evolving into a global movement. As God's children we must reach out to each other with compassion, love, tolerance, acceptance and forgiveness. As the great Martin Luther King Jr. said, "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. The true neighbor will risk his position, his prestige and even his life for the welfare of others." We are prone to judge success by the index of our salaries or the size of our automobiles, rather than by the quality of our service relationship to humanity.” Tree Of Life Ministries is committed to bringing God's light and love to all of humanity. We must reach out and lift up those in need, we must help to feed the hungry and house the homeless. We must fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. We must fight hate and bigotry and be the change we want to see. Help to make our world a better place for all of God's children. Gandhi said, "You may never know what results come of your action, but if you do nothing there will be no result." The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing."
It is time for change, it is time for hope, it is time for all of us to work together for the common good of all humanity. Join the movement and make a difference today.
