There's something we've noticed in ourselves and in moms around us ... a heaviness, and a need for burdens to be lifted. A need for there to be less on our plates, less on our minds, and less on our hearts.
If moms hear one more thing that they aren't doing right, it seems that we will all collectively hit our knees in mourning and despair. There are enough hard things, and it is so easy to just stay there. We cope in a myriad of ways: we joke, we eye roll, we let our kids go untrained and undisciplined, we escape, we eat, we exercise, we work, we do whatever we can to get out from underneath the weight of our calling.
We go everywhere except the one place that not only lifts our burdens, but replaces them with giant helium balloons.
Moms need refreshing truth to be repeated over and over and over. In every moment—when we think are doing good enough job and when we think we are the worst mom on the planet. And that's what we care about communicating here at Risen Motherhood:
The good news that when we live in light of the resurrection of Christ, we can have a secure identity and be part of a bigger story - God's redemption story.
This is a community that will remind you of gospel-truth, no matter how you feel about your motherhood. It's for the imperfect mother, still learning, still growing and still fully recognizing she doesn't have it all together, but we serve a God who does.
Risen Motherhood® exists to encourage, equip, and challenge moms to apply the gospel to their everyday lives.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
“I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth; And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; on the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the one holy church both visible and invisible, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
— Apostle's Creed
STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God. It is without error and never changes. The Bible is trustworthy, true, and what we build our entire life upon. We affirm all 66 books of the Bible, from the Old Testament to the New Testament. As women of God, we treasure the Bible and seek to live out what we read and study each day in loving obedience to our God. (2 Timothy 3:15-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21)
God has always been, and always will be. He is omniscient (all-knowing), omnipresent (always with us), and omnipotent (all-powerful). He created the entire universe and mankind and He holds all things together. He is one God existing in three persons, referred to as the Trinity - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1 , Deuteronomy 6:4)
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life on earth being both fully God and fully man. He died on the cross, taking on our sin and punishment, so that we could have new life and a right relationship with God. After being crucified, He rose from the dead three days later and has ascended and now sits at the right hand of the throne of God. Jesus is coming back again to rule and establish His kingdom on earth. (John 1:1-18, Colossians 1:13-22)
The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. After Jesus ascended into Heaven, God sent the Holy Spirit to be our counselor, comforter, and keeper. The Holy Spirit convicts the world of sins, and equips the believer for ministry and life. The Holy Spirit lives inside of all believers and testifies to the will of God. (Genesis 1:2, Acts 1:8, Ephesians 1:13-14)
We believe that salvation is only through Jesus Christ. We are saved by grace through faith, not by our own good deeds but through Jesus' righteousness and shed blood on the cross. All of mankind are born sinners and in need of a Savior. Christ came to rescue us from our sins and offer atonement on behalf of us. The gospel is the "good news" of Jesus Christ, and we believe that we should live our lives to share the gospel through word and action! (Romans 3:23, Romans 10:9, Ephesians 2:8-9)
We believe that marriage is a covenant between one man and one woman. The marriage bed is sacred and sex is a gift of God between a husband and wife in the confines of marriage. We believe that the wife should love and submit to her husband as the church loves and submits to Christ. We also believe that the husband should love his wife as Christ laid down His life for the church. (Ephesians 5:22-33)
