The Five Ministry Arms of 1p26 Ministries are:
We believe that sin is real and offensive to God. Moreover, every person who is without saving, transforming faith in Jesus Christ is lost and in danger of paying for their sins in hell for all eternity. Therefore, we preach the biblical gospel and compel people to, by God's grace and enablement, humble themselves, repent of their sins, believe the Bible's saving message of God's grace, and place their trust and lives in Jesus Christ.
The Bible teaches that every professing Christian should be continuously growing in the grace and knowledge of God. Those who belong to Jesus Christ by faith are commanded to live disciplined lives, to reflect the character and nature of Jesus, and to pursue the mission of Jesus by being His witnesses wherever they go. Therefore, we teach the Bible for the purpose of life transformation to help believers mature spiritually and holistically in their Christian faith.
When God calls a person to pastoral leadership or to church leadership, He certainly provides the spiritual gifts, constant presence, wisdom, and understanding necessary to succeed. God's call, however, does not nullify the need for training. On the contrary, training is the means by which God, through His Spirit, clarifies, teaches, and empowers His leader servants to accomplish his will. Therefore, we train and equip pastors, especially those with limited access to Bible college and Seminary education, for the purpose of increasing their base of knowledge and broadening their skill sets to make them more effective leaders. In addition, we train and equip church leaders such as deacons, teachers, and ministry teams with knowledge and skills to do the work of the ministry and, thereby, help their churches grow.
Sometimes churches experience declines that leave the membership disillusioned and hopeless. In these times, re-envisioning the future and revitalization are crucial. Therefore, we help churches dream a different future, identify their present status, and process changes and adjustments that can lead to more successful ministry. In addition, some congregations are without proper formation, as well as facilities and resources with which to worship, learn, grow, and serve together. Through a process of due diligence, 1p26 Ministries identifies which of these congregations it can help and provides financially and resourcefully to assist them along the way to health.
People sometimes find themselves in dire circumstances, especially women and children. Pregnant teenagers, single mothers and their children, and orphaned children are most vulnerable. Alcoholics, drug addicts, and people with other addictions who genuinely want new life free from addiction often do not know where to go for help or have the means of securing the help they need. Therefore, through wise investigation, 1p26 Ministries identifies which people and situations can be helped and provides financially to existing Christian organizations who minister to at-risk people and gives financial and practical resources to provide people with basic needs as they work to recover and experience life renewal.

God seeks us; therefore, He reveals Himself to us through creation, through conscience, through the Bible, and through Jesus Christ, God's fullest revelation of Himself. Our Heavenly Father wants us to know Him intimately, obey Him fully, and serve Him faithfully, so we can live full, vibrant, meaningful lives and serve His will and purpose. The primary mission of 1p26 Ministries is to preach and teach the Bible with accuracy and clarity, lead people to saving faith in Jesus Christ, assist people on their journeys of faith, help churches thrive and grow, train pastors and church leaders, and, as God enables, supply people suffering in harsh circumstances with the assistance needed to help them experience renewal of life.

Jesus commanded us: "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also" (Matthew 6:19-21). In other words, we're not to invest in earthly, temporal possessions and matters, because they tend to waste away and disappear. We are to invest in things that have eternal significance--things that last. Moreover, we need only take a clear, honest look at what we're investing in here on earth to discover what our hearts are truly focused and stayed upon.
Jesus also said, "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away" (Matthew 24:35). We also discover that "the world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever" (1 John 2:17). So God's word, the Bible, is eternal, and those people who belong to God through faith live forever with Him. We should, therefore, invest our lives and resources to make sure as many people as possible in as many places as possible have the opportunity to read and hear the eternal word of God and respond with faith in Jesus Christ.
