At Oak Level PFWB we believe in “CAR,” which stands for Chosen, Accepted, and Restored. It’s our sincere belief that every person born was chosen by God before they were ever created. Each person is created with a destiny only they can accomplish. We base this belief on Jeremiah Chapter 1 where God tells Jeremiah He knew him and ordained him for a purpose even before he was formed in his mother’s womb. Additional people throughout the Bible also reveal that each person is born with a purpose, including Moses, Ruth, and the Apostle Paul. We know you are chosen for a purpose that only you and no one else can complete.
The second belief we hold is that everyone is accepted. Jesus said that if anyone comes unto Him, He will not cast them out. He doesn’t predicate His acceptance on people getting everything right before coming to Him. He never makes any exceptions; He just accepts us into the beloved. Many verses support that we are accepted, including Ephesians 1:6, where it says, “To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.” We know that we are not only chosen but also accepted in Him.
The third belief we embrace is that we are restored by the power of the cross. None of us are good enough to come to Christ Jesus if not for the cross on which He died. Before we were born, He restored us into right standing with God. Now we can come before Him boldly and petition Him for our every need. Why? Because He has restored us to God through the power of His cross. There is no other way to be restored or approach God except through Christ.
Today, you also can embrace the word CAR. You can become Chosen, Accepted, and Restored.
Looking forward to meeting you at Oak Level PFWB.
