GOD’S KINGDOM

LOST & BROKENHEARTED

PERSONAL DECLARATION

I am called, anointed, empowered and equipped to reach people far from God

2 Peter 3:9 | Luke 4:18 | Luke 19:10

9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

18 The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free

10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.

JANUARY 3RD

OUR COMMUNITY

URBANDALE & SURROUNDING AREAS

PERSONAL DECLARATION

I powerfully influence my surroundings

Acts 13:47 | Mark 16:15 | Romans 1:16 | Psalm 105:1

47 For this is what the Lord has commanded us:
“‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles,
that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.

15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.

1 Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;
make known among the nations what he has done.

JANUARY 4TH

CHURCH LEADERS

PASTORS & VOLUNTEERS

PERSONAL DECLARATION

I enthusiastically serve leaders. I love people and believe the best about others.

Colossians 3:23-24 | 1 Corinthians 15:58 | 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13

23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

58 Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

12 Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you. 13 Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other.

SPIRITUAL BREAKTHROUGH

PERSONAL DECLARATION

I speak God’s promises over my life. My faith is being strengthened to possess all that Jesus won for me. I am not a slave to my habits. I am not a prisoner to an addiction. I have been rescued from the power of darkness and brought into the kingdom of God’s light.

Hebrews 6:12 | Psalm 34:10 | 1 John 5:14-15

12 We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.

10 The lions may grow weak and hungry,
but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.

14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.

JANUARY 7TH

PHYSICAL BREAKTHROUGH

PERSONAL DECLARATION

I speak to every mountain of discouragement, stress, depression and lack and cast it into the sea in Jesus’ name. I receive constant nourishment to my body, soul and spirit

Isaiah 53:4-6 | Matthew 9:20-22 | Jeremiah 17:14

4 Surely he took up our pain
and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
stricken by him, and afflicted.
5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to our own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.

20 Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak. 21 She said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.”
22 Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed at that moment.

14 Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed;
save me and I will be saved,
for you are the one I praise.

JANUARY 8TH

FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH

PERSONAL DECLARATION

I am abundantly blessed in my finances.My past does not determine my future. I rejoice when others are blessed.

Philippians 4:19 | Malachi 3:10 | Acts 20:35

19 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.

35 In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’

Everytime we gather together, we host the Presence of God. The glory of God rests upon us corporately and individually and God is enthroned upon our praises. A new season for this church has come, the old is gone and the new has begun!

John 4:24 | Psalm 59:16 | Psalm 100:4

24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.

16 But I will sing of your strength,
in the morning I will sing of your love;
for you are my fortress,
my refuge in times of trouble.

4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.

Ephesians 6:18 | 2 Chronicles 7:14

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

JANUARY 11TH

WISDOM AND DIRECTION

PERSONAL DECLARATION

My life belongs to God. Daily I seek him and daily he directs my steps. I know his voice and he leads me to his perfect will.

James 1:5-7 | Proverbs 16:16 | Ephesians 1:17

5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.

16 How much better to get wisdom than gold,
to get insight rather than silver!

17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.

I see my future through the lens of hope. My confidence is in Christ and Christ alone. His spirit lives within me, I can do everything He calls me to do.

8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

CHURCH VISION 2020

PERSONAL DECLARATION

We believe that we are called to be a Jesus-Centered community that is driven by eternity and hungry for revival. A place where God is easy to find.

Psalm 127:1

1 Unless the Lord builds the house,

21 DAYS OF FASTING

We have chosen to make it a priority as a church to seek God in prayer collectively from January 2nd-22nd. Together, we will come together to faithfully seek God first, trusting in His power alone to create lasting impact in our lives, our church, and our world.

The goal of fasting is to draw nearer to God. Biblical fasting always has to do with eliminating distractions for a spiritual purpose; it hits the reset button of our soul and renews us from the inside out. It also enables us to celebrate the goodness and mercy of God and prepares our hearts for all the good things God desires to bring into our lives. Remember, your personal fast should present a level of challenge, but it is very important to know your body, your options, and, most importantly, to seek God in prayer and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do.

ABOUT FASTING

Fasting is a spiritual practice that enables the body of Christ to grow in their relationship with God. The purpose of a fast is to set aside a specific span of time for restricting certain foods or practices as a physical commitment to seek God through deeper personal engagement and fervent prayer. When we combine fasting with prayer and meditation, we can experience a more focused time of closeness with our Lord and seek His wisdom and help.

TYPES OF FASTING

COMPLETE FAST

In this type of fast, you drink only liquids, typically water with optional light juices.

SOUL FAST

This fast is a great option if you don’t have much experience fasting from food, have health issues that prevent you from fasting food, or if you wish to refocus certain areas of your life that are out of balance. For example, you might choose to stop using social media or watching television for the duration of the fast and then carefully bring that element back into your life in healthy doses at the conclusion of the fast.

PARTIAL FAST

This fast is sometimes called the “Jewish Fast” and involves abstaining from eating any type of food in the morning and afternoon. This can either correlate to specific times of the day, such as 6am to 3pm, or from sunup to sundown.

SELECTIVE FAST

This type of fast involves removing certain elements from your diet. One example of a selective fast is the Daniel Fast, a pseudo vegan fast, during which you remove meat, sweets and bread from your diet, consume water and juice for fluids, and fruits and vegetables for food.

THE DANIEL FAST

The Daniel Fast is a great Selective Fast based on the experiences of the Biblical prophet Daniel. Below is a basic guideline for this fast, but additional details can be found online at: UltimateDanielFast.com
