“Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord”, Hebrews 12:14. We are called to be His people, free from all the stains and trappings of the culture. Our desire is to see young people who can stand against the lure of the world, and to live lives that exemplify the standards that Christ called us to.
Our world is desperately in need of young people who will stand up and say, “Follow me as I follow Christ”. The Master’s Commission students are encouraged daily to find God’s heart for the people around them. The world is crying out for Christian leaders that live out what they preach. The Master’s Commission students are encouraged to live lives that are worth following.
Acts 2:17 – “‘And it shall be in the last days,’ God says, ‘That I will pour forth of my spirit on all mankind; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.’”We believe that our God is a speaking God. Our goal is to train young people to hear from God, learn to walk with those that are from previous generations, and then live out the vision they receive for the rest of their lives.
One of the fruit of the Holy Spirit listed in Galatians 5:22 is self-control. It is no mystery that we live in a day that we are in need of self-control in order to protect ourselves from the seduction of the culture. The message of our culture tells young people that a lack of restraint means freedom. We disagree. We believe that the word of God is clear that in order to gain our lives we must lose them (Matthew 10:29), and if we are to be Christ-like we must deny ourselves, take up our cross daily and follow after Him (Luke 9:23).
- Generational Transfer
Malachi 4:6 says, “He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers; or else I will come and strike the land with a curse.” We believe that the zeal of the younger generation needs to be married to the wisdom of the older generation in order for true kingdom authority to be established. God moves through the generations simultaneously and we want to be a part of it. We believe that if the younger generation honour and respect the older generation and those in authority over them, the blessing of God will follow them all the days of their lives.
