Treasuring Christ in the About page of a website..
Matthew 13:44 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.”
“In his joy he sells all that he has” – this phrase isn’t taken lightly. This man found something worth giving everything for. He discovered a treasure that nothing he had could compare to. It was worth it to sell everything to have it.
What he discovered changed everything. His priorities, his values, his world changed. There was a cost, it cost him everything he had, but it was worth it. Quite simply, if I were to summarize this parable I would do it simply by saying this:
Jesus is worth it.
He’s worth more than anything this world can offer us, and He is our treasure. If we believe that, how is this reflected in our lives? What did this mean for me? In my life? In my ministry?
The desire for this website is centered around making much of Jesus Christ. To display to the world that He alone is our treasure above anything and everything else in this world. Yes, even in the “About” page of a website.
“The enjoyment of God is the only happiness with which our souls can be satisfied. To go to heaven, fully to enjoy God, is infinitely better than the most pleasant accommodations here. Fathers and mothers, husbands, wives, or children, or the company of earthly friends, are but shadows; but God is the substance. These are but scattered beams, but God is the sun. These are but streams. But God is the ocean.”- Jonathan Edwards
The deepest longing of the human heart is to know and enjoy the glory of God, to make His name known above all else. That is the heart of this ministry and a goal to be sought after, fought for, and pursued with our lives.
What We Believe
While Jesus was on earth there was much confusion about who He was. Some thought He was a wise man or a great prophet. Others thought He was a madman. Still others couldn’t decide or didn’t care. But Jesus said, “I and the Father are one” (John 10:30). That means He claimed to be nothing less than God in human flesh.

A Question For the Good of Our Souls
“The critical question for our generation—and for every generation— is this: If you could have heaven, with no sickness, and with all the friends you ever had on earth, and all the food you ever liked, and all the leisure activities you ever enjoyed, and all the natural beauties you ever saw, all the physical pleasures you ever tasted, and no human conflict or any natural disasters, could you be satisfied with heaven, if Christ were not there?”
