To be a Christ-Centered Freedom Ministry and see Jesus deliver individuals from the bondage of addiction.
Present God’s truth that sets people free from addictions by connecting them to God through an encounter with Christ through a revelation of the Holy Spirit.
Define a person’s true identity in Christ as revealed in 2 Corinthians 5:17, “this means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” (NLT).
Reveal that the addiction or addictive behavior is a stronghold of the mind, which Christ provided victory over in 2 Corinthians 10:4-5, “The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ” (NIV).
Provide a safe environment through fellowship, high worship, teaching of scripture, prayer and communication; disciplining people into faithful followers of Christ; and empowering them to daily Walk By Faith (2 Corinthians 5:7) in the Freedom that Christ provided when He set us Free (Galatians 5:1).
"So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free" John 8:36
FREEDOM HAS A NAME, IT'S JESUS
In August 2014 the leadership of Risen King Church realized that we were facing a horrific reality, as we lost several of our young people to the bondage of addiction. We determined that we would reach out to those who were struggling with addiction and provide a safe healing environment, to present God's truth that sets people free through a personal relationship with Jesus who gives us a new identity in Him. After much research of established faith-based ministries we decided the foundation of the Walk By Faith Ministry (WBF) would be grounded on a book written by Dr. Neil T. Anderson, Mike Quarrels and Julia Quarrels, Freedom From Addiction. This book discussed how a pastor who struggled for many years with alcohol found his freedom when he realized he was truly a new creation in Christ and no longer a slave to the old self. Dr. Anderson provided clarity into the causes of addiction, how strongholds form in the mind, the sin-confess cycle that keeps us in bondage, and points to our freedom coming from our belief of who we truly are in Christ, a child of God, and then how to walk daily in our freedom.
WBF launched our first Session in July 2016. We have since seen Jesus break the chains of addiction for many people as they walk in their freedom.
