We invite you to join us on this journey of faith


Please let us know if you visit our blog. We are on a journey of faith. On the Logos Hope and Logos 2 we are studying through the book of Nehemiah in the Bible.

God gave Nehemiah a vision to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. When he heard the report he responded in prayer and then gave leadership to the initiative. He faced opposition but kept focused on the task that God had given to him. Through His leadership the people were led to see that a spiritual rebuilding needed to be done in their lives as they built the wall around the city and around the temple that had been rebuilt in response to the prophetic encouragement by Haggai and Zechariah several years earlier.

Many of us have built our temples of worship to God but the walls of our lives are still in a ruin because of the influence the world around us and the attacks of Satan. It is time for us to rebuild those ruins so that our strength is found in our identity in Christ and the strongholds of the enemy are broken. The walls of God’s protection will surround us so that his purpose triumphs over deception and defeat. We learn about prayer, worship, repentance, discipline, leadership, conflict and struggles. We see God’s sovereign purpose for his chosen people unfold through the pages of this practical handbook for a missional community.

“Oh Lord God of Heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant of love with those who love Him and obey His commands, let your ear be attentive and your eyes open to hear the prayer your servant is praying before you day and night for your servants the people of Israel.” Nehemiah 1:5,6.

What if we really believed the work is God’s and that breakthroughs come from Him alone. Would this not radically impact our prayer life and move us to greater depth in worship, intercession, confession and steps of faith to rebuild the walls of protection around the people of God.
