From EJ Hill & Friends

MANIFESTO a.k.a STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
by EJ Hill (1977-) Digg
Because, belief requires a response.
submit

Reason

First, and foremost, I DO WHAT I DO FOR MYSELF - FOR MY OWN SPIRITUAL GROWTH, and FOR MY
OWN CONSCIENCE'S SAKE.

Apart from the above, I ALSO SHARE WHAT I'VE LEARNED with those amongst my family, friends, and
acquaintances; ENLIGHTENED, HONEST, FAITHFUL, AND BRAVE ENOUGH - TO FOLLOW CHRIST
REGARDLESS.

"And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same COMMIT THOU TO
FAITHFUL MEN, WHO SHALL BE ABLE TO TEACH OTHERS ALSO." (2 Tim. 2v2, AKJV, p.528)

Intentions

PROCLAIMING AUTHENTIC CHRISTIANITY. (Pr. 14v5; 1 Jn. 5v1)

Authority

ESTABLISHING THE AUTHORITY OF SCRIPTURE. (Ps. 19v7-11, 119v54, v160, 138v2; Is. 66v2; 1 Cor.
2v13-14; Col. 3v16-17; 2 Tim. 3v16-17; 1 Pt. 2v2; 2 Pt. 1v19-21; Jude v3)

Investigation

OBJECTIVELY INVESTIGATING THE VALIDITY OF ANY DOCTRINE (1 Th. 5v21; 2 Tim. 2v15) by
considering the vast body of evidence as documented both within the established (or institutional) church, as well
as external sources: encyclopedia, historians, skeptics, and the world wide web.

Some have asked whether "objective sources" would not be more reliable than Church history, since they are
"unbiased". In the words of Ralph O Muncaster, "'Unbiased' sources are really very biased! Any complete
investigation demands (the) analysis of both sides of an issue." [1]

Correction

RESISTING SERIOUS DOCTRINAL ERROR, when THREATENING THE CREDIBILITY OF THE GOSPEL
or UNDERMINING THE AUTHORITY OF SCRIPTURE. (1 Tim. 6v20; 2 Tim. 2v16; 1 Pt. 3v15)

Development

Seeking a deeper joy and trust in God through a better understanding of His glories.

Dedication to constant change. (Ph. 3v21)

Abiding in prayer.

Guidance

Performing through the anointing of the Holy Spirit. (Jn. 14v26, 16v8, v13-14; 2 Cor. 1v21-22; Gal. 5v16, v22-23;
Ep. 4v30, 5v18; 1 Th. 5v19; 1 Pt. 4v10-11; 1 Jn. 2v20, v27; Jude v20)

Cooperation

PARTNERING IN THE ADVANCEMENT OF THE GOSPEL, WITH REGENERATE BELIEVERS ONLY.
(Deut. 22v9-11; Hos. 4v17; Mt. 5v44; Jn. 17v14-19; Rom. 8v7-8; 1 Cor. 5v6-13; 2 Cor. 2v17, 4v2-3, v5,
6v14-7v1; Ep. 5v8-12; 2 Th. 3v14-15; Tit. 1v15-16; 1 Jn. 2v15-17)

"HE THAT WALKETH WITH WISE MEN SHALL BE WISE: but A COMPANION OF FOOLS SHALL
BE DESTROYED." (Pr. 13v20, AKJV, p.295)

"Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that THE FRIENDSHIP OF THE WORLD IS ENMITY
WITH GOD? WHOSOEVER therefore WILL BE A FRIEND OF THE WORLD IS THE ENEMY OF
GOD." (Js. 4v4, AKJV, p.537)

Participating with ambassadors of Christ, to fulfill their God-given privilege. (Jn. 13v13-15; Rom. 12v10-11; Gal.
5v13; Ph. 2v1-4; Col. 1v28-29; 1 Th. 2v3-4)

We reject, therefore, Ecumenism.

Evangelism

RECOVERING THE CHURCH'S MISSION MANDATE. (Mt. 28v19-20; Mk. 16v15; Lk. 24v47)

"The single most important hindrance to world evangelism right now is THE LACK OF TOTAL
INVOLVEMENT BY THE BODY OF CHRIST." [3]

Evangelizing a lost world, beginning with nominal (non-evangelical) church-goers, such as Roman Catholics and
liberal protestants. (Mt. 28v19-20; Mk. 16v15; Jn. 24v47)

Fellowship

Establishing bible-based fellowships of believers, where none exist. [2]

MAINTAINING ACCOUNTABILITY IN THE LOCAL CHURCH. (Mt. 18v15-20; Acts 2v42-47; Gal. 6v1-2; 1
Th. 5v12-13; Heb. 10v24-25, 13v7, v17; 1 Pt. 5v1-4)

Nurturing believers in spiritual growth and personal development, regardless of age, gender, nationality, social or
ethnic background.

PRODUCING AN AWE-INSPIRING VIEW OF GOD. (Ps. 29v1-2, 111v10, 115v1; Is. 42v8; Jn. 1v14, 17v1-5;
Rom. 11v33-36, 16v25-27; 1 Cor. 10v31; Ep. 3v20-21; Ph. 2v9-10; 1 Tim. 1v17; Jude v24-25; Rev. 4v8, 11,
5v12)

Provision

Providing access to ministry resources without financial hindrance. (Mt. 6v24-34, 10v8-10; Acts 20v33; 1 Cor.
9v14-18; 2 Cor. 11v7-8; 1 Th. 2v5, v9-10; 2 Th. 3v7-9; 1 Tim. 6v5-10)

Justice

Protecting the affections of our lives (Amos 5v21-24; Jn. 14v15; 1 Cor. 5v6-13; 2 Cor. 2v17, 4v2-3, v5; 2 Cor.
6v14-7v1; Ep. 5v8-12; 2 Th. 3v14-15; Tit. 1v15-16; Js. 4v4; 1 Jn. 2v15-17), and the innocent. (Ex. 23v7; Deut.
19v10; Ps. 72v14; Is. 5v20)

Obtaining impartial justice for all. (Ps. 82v2, 140v12)

Pleading our cause against an ungodly nation. (Ps. 43v1)

Persecution

Suffering persecution for the sake of the Kingdom. (2 Cor. 4v10-11)

Blamelessness

Being ABOVE REPROACH IN ALL OUR ENDEAVORS. (Ps. 15v2-5; Mt. 5v16, v37; 1 Cor. 6v1-3, v6-7; Ph.
2v14-15; Col. 3v16-17; Tit. 2v7-8, 3v1-2; 1 Pt. 2v12-18)

Conclusion
We are also in support of the Trinity Foundation's "Reformation Day Statement" and Steve Camp's "107 Thesis".
[4]

We are committed to holding together two things that are often considered as being mutually exclusive: a
commitment to sound doctrine and a passionate pursuit of the presence of God. It's what we call "impassioned
orthodoxy".
