What is Wholistic Movement?

FUNCTIONAL LIFESTYLE FITNESS

Faith | Form | Fellowship | Freedom

Wholistic Movement is a Christ-centered wellness practice dedicated to inspire, train, and empower the Body of Christ to grow in stature, strength, and service.

It is a place to discover and experience God’s truth. It is a lifestyle that overcomes challenges, cultivates the love of oneself and others, increases flexibility, and builds unified strength – spirit, mind, soul, and body. Ultimately, it is the unique expression of this mystery: ‘Christ in you, the hope of glory.’

Mission

Build-up [love, unify, strengthen, and support] – the Body of Christ for good works of service, which God prepared in advance to do. – Ephesians 2:10

Vision

Hundreds of thousands of people come to know the only true God, and Jesus Christ, through the power, love, and self-discipline of his body, the Church. – John 17:3,  2 Timothy 1:7

Statement of Faith

We believe…

God Exists

  • There is only one God, who exists for all eternity in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
    (Deuteronomy 6:4, Revelation 1:8)
  • That God is alive today and continues to show himself real and powerful to those who seek Him.
    (Matthew 7:7, John 14:17, John 16:13-14, 1 Corinthians 1:12-14, 2 Corinthians 6:16)

We are Created by and for God

  • All things were created by God and for God.
    (Romans 11:36, John 1:3, 1 Corinthians 8:6, 1 Corinthians 11:12)
  • “We love because he first loved us.” God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (1 John 4:19, Romans 5:8)
  • We are to love God with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength. Second to this, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ (Mark 12:28-32)

There is Peace with God because of Forgiveness of Sin through Jesus

  • That Jesus Christ is before all things and all things are kept whole through Him.
    (Colossians 1:17, John 8:58, 1 Thessalonians 5:23)
  • That there is only one way to God, through His Son. Jesus Christ is “the way, the truth, and the life.”
    (Isaiah 43:10-13, John 14:6)
  • That God made forgiveness and redemption available to all who accept Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.
    (1 Timothy 2:3-4, John 3:16-18, 1 Corinthians 15:3-5)
  • “If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8)
  • “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)

The Holy Spirit Brings New Life and Unifies the Body

  • That in Christ, we are new creations inside and out, through the power of the Holy Spirit.
    (2 Corinthians 5:17, Galatians 6:15, Isaiah 43:19, Ezekiel 36:26, Romans 6:4, Romans 8:10-11, Ephesians 4:24, Revelation 21:5)
  • “We were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body” and “we were all given the one Spirit to drink.” (1Corinthians 12:13-14) We are all one in Jesus Christ. (Galatians 3:28)
  • We have “different kinds of gifts but the same Spirit.” (1 Corinthians 12:4)
  • We are to honor God with our bodies because it is the temple of the Holy Spirit.” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

God's Grace is Abundant

  • It is by grace that we have been saved, through faith—and this is not from ourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
  • God’s grace affords power. “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses so that Christ’s power may rest on me. (2 Cor. 12:9)

Nothing is Impossible for God

  • In the hope of God’s glory, and we glory in our sufferings. We know that suffering produces perseverance;  perseverance, character; and character, hope. (Romans 5:2-4)
  • Hope in God does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. (Romans 5:1-5)
  • The Bible is the absolute truth. It is the divinely authored and authoritative Word of God. It is complete in its current canonical form.
    (2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21, Luke 24:27)

There is Power in Christ

  • Jesus is life. “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. (John 15:5)
  • I [We] can do all things through Christ who strengthens me [us]. (Phil 4:13)

God is Patient and Good

  • God “is patient, not wanting any to perish but everyone to come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)
  • That in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)
