God has called Faith NOW Ministries to reach the lost through faith in Jesus Christ. One of the ways we do this is by ministering the Word through Sunday Services and also three day "Discipleship Seminars" to those who are in prison. Stepping out in faith to reach the world around us is commanded for every believer. John the Baptist came as a witness to the Light. He proclaimed Jesus to the world.
35 Again, the next day, John stood with two of his disciples. 36 And looking at Jesus as He walked, he said, "Behold the Lamb of God!"
Our part as believers is to proclaim Jesus to the world! It's up to the hearer to respond to the invitation to this new eternal and exciting life. There is no life apart from Jesus Christ and there is no redemption attained by any other name.
12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."
Through the power of the Holy Spirit Faith NOW Ministries evangelizes by proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the prisoners. The Holy Spirit draws men unto the goodness of God. And it's Gods goodness and love the leads them to repentance.
4 Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repe
14 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? 15 And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings
of good things!"
The Gospel is proclaimed so that people would hear and believe. The next thing we do as we minister to the prisoners is to disciple them. I found it to be true that only disciples will disciple. Not every believer is a disciple. Only those that continue in His Word and become a doer of the Word.
31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; an
d lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.
Making disciples is a direct command from Jesus.
3. Identity Change/New Nature
When we exchange our old nature of sin and become a new creation, through faith in Jesus Christ, our dentity changes. We are no longer identified by who and what we were, we are now the righteousness of God in Christ. Why? Because we came out of the darkness of sin and were translated into His marvelous light in Christ Jesus!
2 Peter 1:2-4
2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
4. Renewing Your Mind
"And do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
If you want to know the will of God for your life.
If you want to know what is acceptable in the sight of God.
If you want to know how to think the way God thinks
If you want change the way you think of yourself and see you as God sees you
If you want to have the mind of Christ, then you MUST renew the old carnal mind and allow God's Word to transform you.
Your spirit in Christ is complete and perfect at the point you receive Jesus as Lord and Savior. But in order to have your soul (mind, will and emotions) line up with your spirit and come in agreement with the Holy Spirit, you must be renewed.

Jesus shed His Blood for our sins and His body was bruised, beaten and by His stripes we were healed
In Jesus Christ our salvation is complete. Every area of our lives is designed to reign victorious and to prosper.
If we are not prospering we are not experiencing the freedom that comes through the truth of the Word.
3 John 2-4
2 Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. 3 For I rejoiced greatly when brethren came and testified of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the truth.
The truth of God's Word we place in our hearts will bring healing and restoration, prosperity and provision, deliverance and power and authority. But we must believe in our hearts and then we will receive what we say by faith!
22 So Jesus answered and said to them, "Have faith in God. 23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. 24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
2 Tim 1:7
7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
