Most of us are broken in some ways, and we believe that a healed heart comes from knowing our true identity and to know that we are truly loved! This is the focus in the teaching you find on this site.
We want to tell you: The Christian life is not a life of striving and trying to become something you are not yet, but it is a journey of discovery of who you truly are and have become, and the one who lives on the inside of you, and with you.

A summary of what we believe and teach.
"The Spirit of the Lord is on Me; because of this He has anointed Me to proclaim the Gospel to the poor. He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim deliverance to the captives, and new sight to the blind, to set at liberty those having been crushed,
Come to Me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
He heals the brokenhearted, and binds up their wounds.
None of us have gone through life without the experience of rejection, fear or mental wounds. Some may have managed to handle them in a better way than others, and some might be good at hiding them or suppressing them, than others. While others are left paralyzed in many ways in fear, guilt, shame and condemnation.
I am not a psychologist but only a Bible teacher who has some experience in this topic and knows and teaches the word of God, but I believe with all my heart that the message Jesus had and has is the solution and healing for all pains we may have in our lives, even physically like sickness.
To say this is not just a cliché for me, like something I just like to say because it is a good christian thing to say.
The Gospel means Good News, but unfortunately many people have not been presented with the Good News, they have often been presented with a religion, a perverse image of God that often brings condemnation and commandments and rules that they fail to reach up to.
This often has the opposite effect of the Good News: it leads to more heavier burdens and more striving. It leads to more oppression, condemnation and broken hearts.
Our wrong picture
Firstly, you have might have been presented a God who is looking to find fault with you and wants to find out what you do of sin; Secondly, you may have been presented yourself as a filthy rotten sinner, or a combination of being both holy and sinful at the same time. This will make you frustrated and confused about who you are and it is not the Good News.
You might also have been presented for teaching that you are made in the image of a monkey, and it excuses you to behave like an animal.
I truly believe the healing and restoration of man and human lives is a discovery of two important truths: Who God is and who you truly are!
1. Discover that God is love.
2. Discover what it means that you are created in God's image and that you are his son or daughter.
Life together with God, that is, the Christian life is a journey of discovery about who God is and who you truly are, and it is not a struggle and heavy burdens, but joy and rest.
If you carry heavy burdens, feel that you are struggling to meet demands and feel depressed and condemned for all the sin you have done, you still have a journey of discovery to walk, and you are not in this journey alone either, God is their, right beside you.
Jesus has already set you free from all burdens, but you need to discover the truth about the freedom you already have.
Freedom begins by seeing how much you are loved, it will cause you to be free to accept and love yourself that will make you love and accept others again, and help them discover the freedom Jesus has called us to live in.
You do not have two identities!
I do not think you are a dualistic person, as some Christian teaches. They say that when you became a Christian, you got a new nature in addition to the old one. I do not believe this is Biblical.
I believe that you became a whole new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17), and that old sinful nature was crucified with Jesus on the cross (Read Romans 6).
If you still believe that you have two natures, or identities on the inside, you will not experience the freedom Jesus already purchased for you, and this is not Good News. If part of you are still bad you will bear heavy burdens and your heart will not be able to be healed because you cannot love something that are bad.
I really believe there is something called sin. It's a reality and it's a power, but sin is not you. It's not your true identity, it's not the true identity of man either, because God did not create you in the image of sin. He created you in His image, which was absolutely perfect, and that is the picture God wants you to be restored back to.
God did not send Jesus so that he would not see you sins, as if Jesus is a filter he sees us through so that he does not destroy us with his anger because of our sins. No, he sent Jesus to tell us who He is and how much we are loved by Him(John 3:16), and that we should again discover and find back to and be restored into the true image we were created in.
and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him,
- The Christian life is not a life of striving and trying to become something you are not yet, but it is a journey of discovery of who you truly are and have become, and the one who lives on the inside of you, and with you.
