Our Values

1. Love
1 Corinthians 1:13 now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love
1Corinthians 13:1-8 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails

We seek to be a people who know the personal and communal saving, unconditional, healing, liberating love of God in our midst and to share that love with everyone we meet. We demonstrate love through being invitational, welcoming, gracious, kind, caring, empathetic, humble, servant hearted, honest, respectful, patient, and forgiving. Creating a safe and life-giving culture of honoring one another as co-laborers and dearly loved members of Christ’s own body in this world.

2. Restoration
 Luke 4:14, 16b-21 Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit…. He stood up to read, and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written: 18 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, 19 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” 20 Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 He began by saying to them, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” 

Through His love for us, Jesus took our wounds on His Cross and desires to heal and liberate us, in body, soul, and spirit. As His disciples we continue His mission to bring healing and restoration to everyone He sends through facilitating a healing encounter with Him.

3.Biblically Grounded
John 17:17 Sanctify them by your truth. Your Word is truth. 
 2 Timothy 3:16,17 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 
Our faith, lives, and ministry are grounded in God’s truth, the Holy Bible, which is breathed by the Holy Spirit. We seek ongoing sanctification, and the heart and mind of Christ, through worship, prayer and the study, and application of, biblical principles. 
See also: Prov 30:5, John 1:1, John 8:51, Hebrews 4:12, I John 2:5, Matthew 4:4, Psalm 119:105. 

4. Holy Spirit Empowered and Led

Acts 1:8 "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
Luke 4:18 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me…”
1 Corinthians 12:1 Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed….

CRA- Restore! is a ministry of the Holy Spirit. We rely on grace and providence, and minister in the love, power, gentleness, wisdom, and gifts, of the Holy Spirit. We believe Jesus wants everyone to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and the gifts, to accomplish His work, and to build up the body of Christ. The Holy Spirit guides, heals and teaches us, and transforms us into the image and likeness of Christ.
See also: Eph 1:13, John 14:26, John 16:13   Acts 11:15, Luke 12:12, 1 Corinthians 2:9-10 

5. Partnership with Others

Revelation 5:9 And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased for God persons from every tribe and language and people and nation."
Isaiah 6:8 NIV Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

The goal of CRA Restore! is to partner with men and women in the wider Body of Christ, from very tongue, tribe and nation, to make Salvation, Empowerment in the Holy Spirit, Inner Healing, and Deliverance, available to every soul that cries out to God.
