It’s our dream that each and every one who comes through our doors would step into and walk in the identity of who Jesus says you are...the beloved sons and daughters of the King. That makes you, in a word, NOBLE.
Merriam Webster defines noble as “of high birth or exalted rank”.
John 1:12-13 says “12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, 13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.”
Did you catch that? If you receive Jesus it is your right to become a child of God! Look at verse 13 again. If we condense the verse by taking out all of the things it says we aren’t born of we get, “who were born…of God.”
The Bible says you, the believer, are literally born of God.
1 John 5:1 puts it simply, “Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God…”
Can you think of a higher birth? Can you imagine a more noble family tree?
Who we are.
It's our belief that understanding and embracing our identity is SO crucial and foundational to our lives as believers, that without it, we can't begin to live the life Jesus says we can. If we can grasp who we are, who we really truly are, it will change everything. And living in that reality together we can change our families, our schools, our city, our world.
"Astonishingly, it’s the favored youth leading the way: princes of praise in their royal robes, and exalted princes are among them, along with princes who have wrestled with God.” -Psalm 68:27 TPT
"But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” -1 Peter 2:9 NASB
Our students are a group of living and breathing God-encounters who get to put the Father on full display at their schools, in their homes, and everywhere they go throughout their lives.
Imagine what a group of radical, God-hungry teens can do to a city! What would it look like to have a group of teens who are completely free of condemnation and shame? These are teens who not only live free from anxiety and depression, but are able to set others free. Teens who aren’t just trying to be good christians but actually radiate the love of God everywhere they go. What if we raised up a group of young people who could honestly say, “If you’ve met me you’ve met Jesus because I’m predestined to be conformed to His image and I look just like Him!”
