Who We Are
"Brotherhood is the very price and condition of man's survival."
- Carlos P Romulo
We believe . . .
in the One True God, the Sovereign, eternal Creator of all that exists, both seen and unseen. God is eternally existent in three persons, yet in one: God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, only, infallible, inerrant, authoritative Word of God.
in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, the salvation of the world through his atoning death and shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return to earth in power and glory.
that God created mankind in His image. The first human beings, Adam and Eve, sinned against God. The result of this sin was that they and all their progeny became separated from God. The original glory and dignity of mankind, as they were created in the image of God, was compromised, as all their progeny, at birth, became subject to the power of sin and the devil. This condition is hopeless and unchangeable by human effort. The only remedy for mankind’s eternal separation from God is redemption through faith in Jesus Christ.
that when a person places their faith in Jesus Christ, they pass immediately out of spiritual death into spiritual life. From the old self into a new, resurrected self. A new heart imparted; no longer seperated from God, justified freely by grace and accepted before the Father as His child.
the Holy Spirit lives and unites all believers with the Father and Son, empowering and instructing them to live a godly life.
in the resurrection of all humanity; those who are saved unto the resurrection of life and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
We hope to enrich the face of Christianity.
Our desire is to . . .
Rediscover the hidden treasures of the Gospel
Transform the lives of men and their families
Teach men and women to walk with God
Restore the hearts of men so they can, in turn, rescue others
Our Band of Brothers
I was living life angry and frustrated and I couldn’t figure out why. I had resigned to the fact that life just sucked and the only way to make it better was to just stop trying to fight it. Man was I wrong. Through live ABoB Boot Camps and Ransomed Heart ministries I was awakened to the fact that the frustration and anger I was experiencing was a result of me losing to spiritual warfare. Because of those retreats I have been able to rediscover who I am and who He created me to be. My God given heart the one that He placed in me when He created is being restored. My path, at least for now, is rescuing the hearts of men with my band of brothers through live boot camps by the Hill Country Men on Fire.
When I attended my 1st Bootcamp, I was a Christian, but my spiritual life had become stagnant. I believed in God, and I loved Jesus, but I can’t say I was walking with God, my relationship with God was not intimate, or interactive. But the Bootcamp experience, and being a member of Hill Country Men on Fire team has opened the door for me to a life where I take on each day walking with God, moment by moment, matter by matter, and circumstance by circumstance. And now one of my core desires is to continue to grow in my personal relationship with God, and to partner with God , and the Hill Country Men on Fire team to help lead as many men as possible to walk with God in a personal, interactive, and intimate relationship.
The best way I can describe my situation for most of my life is confused, in a fog, resigned, with the occasional outburst of anger that left me more confused. I had faith, it just felt as if it had a life of its own. Sometimes there, most times not; praying only when I needed something or when someone was ill. My faith had no depth, no heart and I carried a sense of dread something vital was missing. The men I knew who had “real faith” were joyful, engaged and fully transparent. I WANTED THAT! But I found wanting is not enough. The road to the true man, the man God created each of us to be requires a deeper understanding of the Gospel, an awakening of the heart, an understanding of the larger story and a full understanding of our own story. My faith journey began over 20 years ago, but it did not become fully alive until I attended a boot camp much like the one which we host at Hill Country Men on Fire.
Through my life trials, and overcoming them, I have learned to never underestimate God! Through the “Wild At Heart” bootcamps and “Hill Country Men On Fire,” my conversations with God have been ignited. I have a new understanding of what it means being “blind” and “deaf.” I think differently, react differently, love differently than I used to before knowing God. I have found that it is never too late to become the man that you are intended to be in God’s eyes. It was as simple, for me, as saying “yes” to God. There has always been a flame in my heart and soul, since I was born, to be a son, a husband, a father…now there is a raging fire that consumes within me to be a loving son, loving husband, and loving father. God, thank you for championing me through all of life’s trials, good and bad!
