TradingUp Manifesto Statements

The image of God carried by most people is that He is impersonal, irrelevant, critical, distant and not very interesting. The greatest need they have is to live their lives with an ever-expanding view of Him.
Isaiah 40, 2 Corinthians 3,4; John 8, Job 38-40

Living like God is a real Person, a present Person, a perfect Father, infinitely good and infinitely great is essential for enjoying Him. Psalm 16, 139, Hebrews 10, Luke 15

Tragically, most people’s image of God is shaped more by the limitations of their earthly father and lies of the enemy, than by the truth of God.
Genesis 3, John 8, 2 Corinthians 4, Matthew 7

The biggest battles Christians face against the world, the flesh, and the enemy happen during the active hours of our day. Philippians 2, Ephesians 6, 2 Corinthians 10

Taking small steps towards an ever-expanding view of God will lead to an increasing desire and passion to know and follow God.
John 8, 14, Romans 12

The true measure of our spiritual progress is the frequency and depth of our encounters with God that will naturally result in sharing God stories. Psalm 145

We need to recalibrate the way we encounter God when reading the Bible. When we know what God is truly like we see the rest of the Bible in a very different light.
Matthew 23, John 6,9
