The Ministry of LIBERATE
LIBERATE’s message is defined by Jesus’ mission: “I have come to set the captives free” (Luke 4:18).
Through the demand of his law, God confronts and condemns people in their bondage and sin; through the declaration of his gospel, God comforts and forgives people with the liberating love of Jesus Christ. We want sufferers to hear these “two words” (law and gospel) so they can believe the promise that frees us from our past of guilt and shame; frees us from the present bondage of bitterness, insecurity, self-reliance, and fear; and frees us for the joy of worshiping God and serving our neighbor.
Our mission is to announce (and then announce again and again) this liberating word to a wounded and worn out world, hoping that the burdened and burnt out, the Christian and the non-Christian, will hear and rest in the freedom that Jesus came, died, and lives to give.
In addition to the content provided on the LIBERATE site, LIBERATE celebrates the liberating power of the gospel by hosting an annual conference in February at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The LIBERATE conference offers encouragement through speakers who bring God’s two words of law and gospel to specific parts our daily lives, fellowship with new and old friends, and grace saturated worship.
