Why We Became Missionaries

It was never our life goal or desire to give up an income, move to a rural village in a developing country and become missionaries.  Truthfully, Matt and I both would have agreed that our “colorful” pasts and our basic character weaknesses would have excluded us from mission work.  God had different plans. While we still believe that  we perhaps don’t fit the “typical” missionary mold, we are none-the-less reminded that God knew we didn’t fit the mold when he called us here to Guatemala for His purpose.  God has chosen to use us in spite of our natures-not because of them. Through the grace of God, not through our works we have been saved.   We haven’t come to Guatemala out of self righteousness, judgment or some new  fanaticism but rather out of obedience to the call of God to go and make disciples of the nations.

Statement of Belief and Faith

We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God or very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made.Who, for us and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.
