Karate for Christ International
Our mission is to operate Christ-centered martial arts programs committed to inspire, encourage, and equip its students not only to become better martial artists, but more importantly, to become bold effective witnesses for Jesus Christ. These programs reach into the community, providing a vehicle for evangelism to Adults and children.
Karate for Christ International exists to glorify God by leading people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. A fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ seeks to become a person who daily worships God, brings others to Christ, learns God's word, loves other believers, and serves in the world.
This is the heart and soul of what we are trying to accomplish.
This is Karate for Christ!
What we believe....
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has and does exist in three distinct persons eternally as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal, are of the same nature and are the one True God as revealed through the Scriptures.
Genesis 1:1,26,27, Genesis 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; I Peter 1:2;
II Corinthians 13:14
Man is made in the spiritual image of God to be like Him in character. He is the supreme object of God's creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called "sin". This attitude separates man from God.
Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1,2
Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence.
John 3:16, John 2:25, John 5:11-13; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; Matthew 18:8, Matthew 25:44, 46
What we believe....
...About Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven's glory and will return again to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Matthew 1:22,23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, John 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14,15; I Corinthians 15:3,4; Romans 1:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; I Timothy 6:14,15; Titus 2:13
Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin's penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8,9; John 14:6, John 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1
...About The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily.
John 16:7-13, John 14:16,17; Acts 1:8, II Corinthians 3:17; I Corinthians 2:12, I Corinthians 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18
...About The Bible
The Bible is God's Word to all men. It is written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.
II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20,21; II Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:10,160, Psalm 12:6; Proverbs 30:5.
