Why S.F.M.

Why Surefooted Ministries?

Surefooted Ministries (S.F.M.) provides personalized one-on-one discipleship training through social media.

By the direction of the Holy Spirit and through the transparency, humility and obedience of each student, along with personal mentoring, students can be transformed into practicing disciples of Jesus Christ.  

Our goal is to develop godliness in each student by helping them use and rightly divide God’s word, as well as effectively utilize the power of God in their everyday lives. We believe these to be necessary components in equipping the saints to advance the kingdom of God. Even Apollos, in Acts 18:24-26, who taught accurately about Jesus, had the way of God more accurately explained to him, so he could operate in the fullness, of the blessing, of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

As we come into God's light certain areas of our life will be exposed. These certain areas can be negative (not of God) or positive (of God). Once we become aware of the negative areas (things not of God), help may be needed to overcome them. In other words, a more accurate way will become necessary to move forward. It is toward this "more accurate" path where S.F.M. will guide its students (new and seasoned Christians), in order to properly advance God's kingdom and overcome the enemy.

This is achieved by comprehending the fullness of Surefooted Ministries' mission, found within the teaching seriesThe Pattern.  God has given His people a pattern to follow, to advance His kingdom, and it is His desire that we implement and engraft this pattern into our daily life. This S.F.M. series reveals God’s lifestyle pattern for believers in much detail, and illustrates how to incorporate it into our lives today.

John 3:19-21
"And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does what is true comes to the light, that it may be clearly seen that his deeds have been wrought in God." RSV

 

Surefooted Ministries can effectively help individuals, within the body of Christ, learn how to overcome problem areas, grow more mature in the things of God and become a practicing disciple of Jesus Christ.
