The Most Excellent Way Recovery Ministry
WHAT IS THE MOST EXCELLENT WAY?
"The Most Excellent Way" is a Christ-centered, Bible-honoring, discipleship ministry dedicated to helping people receive and experience new life by faith in Jesus Christ. Unlike secular rehabs and recovery groups, The Most Excellent Way uses the Word of God exclusively and its principles to help people overcome the guilt, frustration, hopelessness, fear and shame associated with self-destructive life-styles. We do not endorse or teach the disease concept of addictions, but rather focus on God’s desire to restore us.
WHAT IS THE VISION OF THE MOST EXCELLENT WAY?
TO ASSIST in establishing God-honoring Fellowship/Support Meetings in Christian environments around the world as alternatives to “12-step recovery” philosophies;
TO WIN souls for Christ;
TO COMFORT and encourage the broken-hearted with the love of God;
TO DISCIPLE new believers with God’s Word by the power of Holy Spirit for a joy-filled, productive new life;
TO TRAIN ministry leaders for “The MostExcellent Way”;
TO SEND new, spiritually regenerated creations into the world to spread the Gospel that bringslove, acceptance and forgiveness through faith in Jesus Christ, our Good Shepherd.
WHAT WE BELIEVE:
WE BELIEVE the Bible is God’s inerrant, infallible Word, and it is the final authority on all issues concerning our lives and “The Most Excellent Way” ministry.
WE BELIEVE the Bible says alcohol and drug addiction are sin, not disease. Therefore, the facts of sin and separation from God are dealt with as the roots of all addiction problems.
WE BELIEVE there is only one way we find forgiveness for sin: through faith in Jesus Christ who died for our sins. He is the only authority and power able to forgive our sins.
WE BELIEVE there is only one way to be reconciledto God and achieve total victory over the sin of addiction: Jesus said: “You must be born again” by the Spirit. John 3:7 NKJV. That occurs when we ask JesusChrist to become our personal Lord and Savior.
WE BELIEVE once “born again,” we are empowered by the Spirit of God to overcome any sin, including addiction and drunkenness.
WE BELIEVE permanent victory over the sin of addiction occurs when we deny our own will, and begin to willingly submit our lives to the perfect will of God on a daily basis.
WE BELIEVE in teaching, encouraging and discipling new believers from God’s Word as led by His Holy Spirit.
WE BELIEVE knowing God’s truths protects us from man’s false ideas and doctrines prevalent in today’s world. “Jesus said to those ... who believed Him, ‘If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.’” John 8:31-32 NKJV
WE BELIEVE Jesus is the truth that makes us free. He is the source of truth, the perfect standard of what is right. He frees us from self-deception, and His Spirit gives us discernment: that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ . . .”Ephesians 4:14-5 NKJV
