"WHERE GOD'S PERFECT WORD RESTORES IMPERFECT PEOPLE"
3633 W FLOATING FEATHER RD • EAGLE, ID 83616
Vision Statement: To bring the hope of the cross, and the truth of the Word, to a people RESTORED to God, through Christ Jesus.
What we Believe
We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God. Therefore, our ministry emphasizes the exposition of God's Word from Genesis to Revelation, line upon line, precept upon precept.
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful humanity, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential and that repentance from sin and acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the only way to come into a relationship with God.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life; we further believe His power and gifts are available to believers today.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We believe it is important to uphold the scriptural practices of the early church. Therefore, we hold to the practice of water baptism and the regular taking of Communion. We do not believe that either of these practices is essential for salvation, but that they serve as a demonstration of our living faith in Christ.
We believe that God created mankind—male and female—in His own image and likeness, free of sin, to glorify Himself and enjoy His fellowship. Tempted by Satan, but in the sovereign plan of God, man freely chose to disobey God, bringing sin, death and condemnation to all mankind. All human beings, therefore, are totally depraved by nature and by choice. Alienated from God without defense or excuse, and subject to God's righteous wrath, all of mankind is in desperate need of the Savior (Genesis 3:1–6; Romans 3:10–19; Romans 1:18, 32).
We believe it is the aim, duty, and privilege of every believer and local church fellowship to glorify God by responding as active participants in the Great Commission call of Jesus Christ to go and make disciples of all nations. (Matthew 28:19)
Deb's Restored Story
I feel very blessed and fortunate not only to have been raised in a godly home from the cradle, but also to have been called to the cross at such an early age. I was 7 when I realized that Jesus died on the cross “just for me” and in childlike faith walked forward to put my trust in Him and accept the free gift of Himself into my heart!
Being very active in our small church, at age 13, I rededicated my life to God when I realized that being a Christian went beyond receiving a gift, but also demanded a response from me. I guess you could say I “fell in love” at age 13 with my Lord and Savior and began to explore ways to have a relationship with Him, using a Bible and notebook that I still have today!
After standing firm through high school, leading in my youth group, and attending a Bible College to complete a 1 year Bible program, I was asked to join a revival ministry called LIGHT Ministries. God was providing a place for me to learn the disciplines of the Christian life like I had never known them before, and I stayed with this ministry as Administrative Assistant to the Director for four years where I learned to love God, His Word and people.
After marrying and together serving on the leadership team for the college group at Shadow Mountain (then Scott Memorial) I had the privilege of raising 3 beautiful children. I enjoyed sharing my faith with them and raising them to know and love and serve the same Jesus I did! Their father unexpectedly turned his back on us and on the Lord after 10 years in a mid-life crisis, and we all found ourselves leaning on the Everlasting Arms, while in the deepest pain. But God does not waste anything, as I have seen Him use the comfort and strength that He poured out on us in the lives of others as we have shared how He held us as we remained faithful to Him (II Cor 1:3). I have never been so close to my Heavenly Father as during this season of pruning. He was so very faithful to me!
A second storm in life, which gave me a 4th child and 2nd divorce, tested me deeper and I faced it proclaiming that I would be “unshaken” for Him (Ps 15). I was serving at Skyline at the time and am so grateful that my Pastor believed in me through this storm and allowed me to continue leading women to the Word as I coordinated Women’s Bible Study for two years. God was able to use me even during g this time because I trusted Him to lead and He used it as an opportunity to showcase Himself to many women (II Chron 16:9). My childlike “trust” and life time verse (Prov 3:5-6) became my mantle as I made conscious effort to “not focus on my unbelievable circumstances, but rather on my unbelievable God.!” I was asked to be a workshop speaker for a women’s event in our church and saw many women drawn into the Bible Study. God uses our brokenness to show Himself very real!
In 2004, I was relocated through God’s providence to Turning Point and to Shadow Mountain - it felt like coming “home!” I served as Altar Counselor and Administrative Assistant for Precept. Once introduced to Precept, I knew it was a life long adventure in His Word, and God allowed me to broaden my sphere by allowing me to teach. I was the Precept Teaching Director for 9 years. I have a great love for the Word and for women, and a great desire to see them “understand and respond” to the amazing Word of God.
God has found a way to increase my usefulness for His kingdom by gifting me with a wonderful husband who loves and serves the Lord as I do (and two more children too)! We both experienced similar storms and God used that to bond us. We are both in love with the Lord and His Word and have a desire to reproduce ourselves in others.
God has turned my “ashes into beauty, my mourning in to gladness, and my despair into praise and I will forever display his splendor” until I see Him face to face! (Isaiah 61).
