Making Disciples of All Nations

According to the New Testament

The Gospel is the Message, Discipleship is the Mission, and Acts is the Model!

THE MESSAGE: We work to preach the Gospel of the kingdom to every creature. If people turn from their sins in repentance toward God (Acts 2:38, 3:19, 17:30-31, 26:20, Mark 1:15), if they believe the Son–Jesus Christ–and are baptized in His name to wash away their sins and receive forgiveness (John 3:16,36, Acts 5:31, 10:43, 13:38, 22:16, Luke 24:47), and if they follow Him in obedience to His Word (Hebrews 5:9, John 8:31-32,51, 14:15,21, 15:5-8), they will inherit eternal life and be saved from this perverse generation (Acts 2:40, 26:18, 1 John 5:11-13).

Christ was crucified to suffer the judgment of God that we deserve and to put our sin to death (Isaiah 53:1-6, Romans 6:5-6,10-11); He was buried to bury our old nature (we are buried with Him in baptism) (Colossians 2:11-13); and He was resurrected so that we might be raised to the new life of righteousness, through faith in Him (Romans 6:4,11-14, Luke 1:74-75, Ephesians 2:8-9, 4:22-24).

We will soon be granted a physical resurrection by which our bodies will be transformed unto immortality (Philippians 3:20-21, 1 Corinthians 15:50-54). Before the coming of that glorious day, all who obey Jesus are given the Holy Spirit as the proof, guarantee, and down-payment of their salvation (Acts 5:32, 15:8-9, Ephesians 1:13-14). 

We preach this message to make disciples of Christ and expand His kingdom until He physically returns to establish His kingdom, superseding and destroying all other governments (Isaiah 9:6-7, Daniel 2:44, 7:13-14,18,26-27). Then the saints will reign with Him on earth for eternity. Amen!

THE MISSION: We work to make disciples, while we help others (churches and individuals) to make disciples biblically and effectively. We love to work with individuals, small groups, pastors and other church leaders…anyone interested in transforming themselves into prolific disciple-makers who are full of the Holy Spirit and power.

THE MODEL: We work to plant and encourage churches according to the model of the New Testament for how disciples are made and how churches are established and expanded. Our methods are drawn from this apostolic blueprint of the New Testament. We believe and follow the whole Bible.

We also distribute teaching material such as videos and books that are used to supplement the training process. Visit the store page if you’re interested in the books (authored by David Grams) that we offer.

David Grams serves the body of Christ by offering strategy and leadership development coaching for churches and their leaders.

If you’re interested in getting help/coaching to plant, adjust, or foster a strong church community, email David at david@valiantmi.com.

CHURCH-FLIP is the branch of this ministry that offers training for the Acts-based life through resources such as books and instructional videos. CHURCH-FLIP is primarily for church-planters and church-leaders who are looking to start their churches off on the right foot and/or adjust their churches to align more closely and practically with the instructions of the New Testament.
