About

Purpose

We equip and encourage golfers around the world to PERFORM in alignment with their God-given purpose and design, both on and off the golf course. 

Vision

Through their interaction with the ministry, golfers will experience real performance results, not only in their golf game, but in their lifestyle.  Stress will be reduced.  Relationships will be healed.  Marriages will be strengthened.  Generational strongholds will be uncovered.  Overall health and wellness will improve.  And step by step, Christ will become known.  Some will come to know Him as Lord and Savior.  Others will strengthen their personal walk with Him.  Connecting golfers to God, one step at a time!

Statement of Faith

Concerning God: We believe in the Holy Trinity, that there is but one God, who exists eternally in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Concerning Man: We believe that all have sinned and fallen short of God’s plan and are in need of being brought into right relationship with God.

Concerning Salvation: We believe salvation is from God alone, accomplished by the completed work of Jesus Christ. It is applied to mankind, not on the basis of individual merit, but by the grace of God through faith, alone, apart from any works of man.

Concerning Jesus: We believe Jesus is the eternal Son of God, born of a virgin; and, who lived a perfect life and gave that life on the cross as a sacrificial atonement for those who would trust him for salvation.

Concerning Scripture: We believe the Bible is the word of God; given through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. We believe the Bible to be without error in the original manuscripts, and that it is infallible, and is authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.

Concerning Christ’s Return: We believe in the visible and bodily return of Jesus Christ, at a time appointed by, and known only to, God; and, that Jesus Christ will judge all mankind and receive His people to Himself.
