Helping to start house church type congregations, schools & community focused on new disciples, sonship and/or 7M.
VISION AND FOCUS
Evangelism that is connected with discipleship maturing
Serving people in their vocations, including single mothers and young children
both sparked by clear text and deep revelation from the Bible, fueled by Holy Spirit
In a time of prayer recently, I saw how both pastors and congregations have been snookered in order to keep everyone down. Ministers have to placate people’s flesh, even demons, in order to keep up the budget, especially since there is an assumption of the necessity of uber expensive building and equipment. Congregants are snookered into valuing only the church’s program and thus failing to be salt and light in the world. In pitting one against another, making a real difference in the world, i.e., expanding the Kingdom, is the last subject that can be discussed. Let alone done. People are owned instead of cared for. People support the organization rather than each other. Programmatic rather than organic. Budget over love.
Yes, this site was called “Jesus Name Austin.” The idea was always to start churches (plural). My busy schedule and the shutdown did impede us. Our first interest is Austin/Central Texas and East Tennessee. We will help you wherever you are, or pass you on to two similar organizations.
What We Believe
- The Bible is the sovereign Word of God and every word of it can be taken as absolute truth.
- Salvation by grace, through faith.
- The manifestations of the gifts of the Holy Spirit for every believer in Christ.
- Healing through laying on of hands, anointing with oil and faith in the written Word of God.
- Importance of personal prayer, communion with others in the church
- Sonship, meaning growing into full maturity which takes community but is not arrived at by ownership, obedience, or subservience
- Seven Mountain, meaning service in the world that includes offering godly leadership and civic involvement
We believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ His only son our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried, He descended into hell: The third day He rose from the dead He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty from there He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost, the church universal, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
We are led by Sharon Sarles, M.Div. M.A.. We partner with Lance Wallnau, Johnny & Elizabeth Enlow, All Nations Church, pastored by Mahesh and Bonnie Chavda, and have been accepted under the covering of GPEC/Robert Henderson.
Originally ordained in apostolic succession (meaning in an historical church tracing a line from the first apostles) after attending a seminary that is accredited by the South Association of Schools and Colleges. Further, this call of God has been witnessed to and blessed by recognized prophets, and impartations from R.W. Schambach, Benny Hinn, and Mahesh Chavda when he blessed the idea of starting some churches. Now we are working a little more closely with Robert Henderson because he is closer geographically.
Further, we read abundant evidence of women’s ordination in an inerrant Bible: e.g. Isaiah 68:11, Matthew 28:10, Romans 16:3&7, Phillipians 4:3, I Tim 3:11, and then please contemplate what Hebrews 13:22 says about who wrote Hebrews. One must resort to the King James, rather than Hebrew and Greek, to arrive at the preconceived error that only men may preach or lead. Think about it: do you really want to perpetuate the politics that King James injected into the Bible in order to strengthen his reign? Therefore, henceforth, let no one trouble me as I bear in my life the marks of persecutions; I have been hated without a cause. We do, however, appreciate the strength and focus of leadership that our brothers bring.
