Our mission statement
It was the mission of Jesus to reconcile men to God, and thus to one another. Likewise, it is our mission to encourage all to be reconciled to God through a daily, active, living faith in Christ Jesus, our Lord and Saviour; then to carry this oneness with Christ into our marriages, our families, our church, and our relations with those in the world. It is thus by the indwelling Christ that others will find the restoration so desperately needed today. The daily, practical application of this restoration in Christ is the focus of Restoration International, Inc.
Our fundamental beliefs
Restoration International is a supporting ministry of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and a member of ASI. All our board members, administration committe, and speakers are committed members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
Our mission, in practical terms
Since this ministry began in 1989, our travels have taken us to almost every state in the US and many other countries around the globe. Everywhere we see people under relentless stress, marriages in crises, families crumbling, and discontented, rebellious children and youth. This is not only happening in the world at large, but in the lives and homes of the professed Christian community. Anger, fear, anxiety, lust, gluttony, bitterness, hatred, and immorality are all signs and symptoms that something is greatly lacking. Every imaginable outlet has been tried, but the problem is getting worse—not better. Is there any hope of finding true peace and happiness?
Absolutely! There is a solution, a real answer. The hope and help we need is available to everyone—anytime, anywhere. That solution is Christ, the Saviour of the world who wants to become a personal, living Saviour to each of us at all times, in all places, under all circumstances.
Those of us here at Restoration International have tasted and seen that the Lord truly is good and continue to deepen our personal oneness with Him. We understand the daily battle with self and where the “me focus” leads us. We also understand the powerful, practical, saving power of Christ and how, as we are willing to surrender to Him, He can change us from self-centered people into restful, calm, forgiving people.
We have found that the Gospel of Christ truly is the power of God unto salvation as we surrender and put our real dependence upon Him. As we are finding practical answers in our personal strivings with Christ we are seeking to bring these principles into our marriages and our parenting.
God is a very personal God, and as we grow in His grace, sometimes with the faith of a child, and sometimes by hard lessons of failure, we have experienced His saving power. By His faithfulness and our willingness we have been given the special privilege to minister His Gospel to countless people from all walks of life, in many different cultures around the world. Our greatest joy is to see precious people choose to surrender their lives and hearts to God through faith in Him who says, “…I am the God of all flesh, is there anything too hard for Me?” Jeremiah 32:27. No, there is nothing too hard for Him, for with God all things are possible.
We have witnessed the most incredible miracles in seeing God’s power restore hearts and homes for full and complete restoration.
No matter how discouraged you may be…
No matter how stressed you are…
No matter how bruised your marriage…
No matter how fragmented your family…
No matter how rebellious your children seem…
As long as we have breath we have hope. And that hope is life in Him, which will be eternal.
