Mission Statement

Our mission statement:
“That the United States and the world might know Christ through  example”.

Statement of Faith:
1. We believe the Bible is the inspired, the only infallible authority of God. We believe it to be God’s Word. We believe there is one God in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Matthew 28:19
2. We believe that man is lost and undone and needs a Savior to avoid judgement. We believe that Savior is the Lord Jesus Christ. Luke 24:46-47.
3. We believe the true Christians have the Holy Spirit inside their being and can live a Holy life. John 3:5-8.

4.  We believe that God gives Christians spiritual gifts, one of which may be the ability to share faith using the written word, aka-“blogging”.  Our hope is that our bloggers would see this as a mission in their lives, to make a difference in the United States and the world by using the written word.  If this is your heart, please join us in  “blog 31 days”.

So that everyone will be able to follow your blog on your website. Make it easy for them by linking all of your 31 days writings to one beginning post.  Here’s how to do that:

On your own blog, you will set up a post to give a caption for every single day that you write.  For example if you are writing about “How to change the world”, you will create a page called just that and on that page number from 1-31 ( 31 days of writing).  Each day as you blog you will link your day-blogging to that day. For example:  On day 1 you might have an introduction so your page will look like this:

How To Change The World

Day 1- Introduction ( and you will link the introduction blog to this). On your 2nd days you might blog about “Changing the world is not easy”.

Day 2- Changing the World is Not Easy ( You will return to the “How To Change the World” page to link up day 2 and day 3 and so on until at the end of your 31 days your whole 31 day series(all 31 individual blogs)  is linked on the “How To Change The World” page on your own personal blog.People can then go to your website and click on your “How To Change The World” page to find your whole 31 day series.
