Ephesians 4:11 reminds us that God gave gifts to the Body of Christ to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ. ARM seeks to nurture, educate and equip individuals and churches to minister in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Without the Holy Spirit, the wounded keep on wounding, the hurt keep on hurting, and the aimless continue to wander. Without the Holy Spirit, the captives remain captive, the spiritually blind continue in blindness, and the spiritually deaf continue in silence. Without the Holy Spirit, prayers remain unproductive and ineffective, worship remains weak, mediocrity is propelled, and potentials are not reached. Without the Holy Spirit, instead of fulfilling the Great Commission, the church ends up sitting like the lame one at the Gate Beautiful begging from the world just to survive.
Picture instead, God supernaturally, and uniquely at work in every local church, drawing people to Himself, building His church, advancing His Kingdom, turning the world upside down.
Introduce - People to the Holy Spirit
Invite - People to experience the power of the Holy Spirit in their lives.
Impact - The world through people who have been transformed by the power and love of the Holy Spirit
ARM purposes to strengthen the church with a strategy of team-led renewal events tailored to the spiritual needs of the local congregation. ARM offers tools to help the local church establish a vibrant prayer, worship and faith-sharing life fueled by the power of the Holy Spirit. To individuals, ARM offers learning experiences that teach about the integral ministry of the Holy Spirit who empowers them to pray, worship and to share their faith journey, carrying on the ministry of Jesus.
Also, ARM seeks to minister to ministers. Mindful of the unique and serious challenges that clergy face, ARM provides opportunities for spiritual renewal, refreshment and leadership development for those in ministry.
