Our Purpose

Liya Christian Ministry's purpose is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our goal is to bring awareness and provide hands on training to pastors and church leaders so that the congregations are ready to Accept people with disabilities.   

 

Our goal is to promote Access for individuals with disabilities to services enjoyed by members of the society at large.

 

Our goal is to advocate for physical Accessibility to buildings.  

 

Our Vision

All people are created by God for His divine purpose.  Regardless of disabilities we are "fearfully and wonderfully made". 

 

Liya Christian Ministry through integration and education seeks to promote Acceptance, Access and Accessibility in Ukraine.  

 

Music

Music opens doors for us to visit churches, to bring awareness and to present our ministry to various congregations.  Through concerts we raise awareness of the need and introduce our ministry to the public.

 

Statement of Faith

We believe that everything we do is an act of worship.  We pray for harmony with our partners in Christ Jesus, so that together with one voice we may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 15:6).

In all things .... charity

In the non-essentials .... liberty

In the essentials .... unity

In All Things

            Our goal is to bring the life giving message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all we come in contact with.  Through charity and service we come along side individuals and families to share in their burdens by helping them with the physical needs.  Through prayer, worship and Christian witness we help them with spiritual needs.

    

The Non-Essentials

            Our volunteers and staff come from various walks of life.  We believe God can accomplish His purpose by any means He chooses.  We partner with organizations, churches and individuals who are willing to support our Christian mission.

 

             We work across nations, cultures, languages and traditions.  While we strive to learn about each other's backgrounds we try not to let traditions stand in the way of our mission to preach the Gospel. 

 

            We are comfortable  partnering with churches or individuals that embrace contemporary or traditional styles of music.  Some of our volunteers worship in churches that ask females to cover their heads, others don't.  We are supported by churches that ordain women as deacons and those that don't.  Some of our ministry partners view the use of make up as acceptable, while others choose to abstain from it (Romans 14:1-4).

 

            At time our partners disagree on the doctrinal positions.  As a ministry we first and foremost seek peace and unity (Romans 12:18) and recognize that God will accomplish His purpose regardless, and often in spite of, our doctrine.  We believe local churches have specific and important role in teaching the doctrine.  Our essential beliefs serve as a guide in making decisions. 

The Essentials

            We are a Christian Ministry and our goal is to share the Good News with each person we serve.  All ministry must be empowered by the Holy Spirit to be effective (John 15:5).  The glory of God is the motive of our work and ministry (1 Corinthians 10:31).

            We believe all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God and it is only by repenting and putting our faith in Christ Jesus we are justified freely by His grace and not our works (Ephesians 2:8-9).

            We believe Jesus Christ was crucified and died for our sins, but on the third day He rose again, appeared to many and ascended into heaven and He will come to judge the living and the dead. 

            We believe that all scripture, the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testament, is God-inspired and is inerrant and infallible word of God.  The Bible is the guide for all faith and practice and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16).  Where the Bible is clear, we are emphatic, however where the Bible is silent, we allow people freedom (2 Corinthians 3:17).

            We believe in the triune God, one in essence, eternally existing, and subsistent in three Persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).

            We believe that man was directly and immediately created by God in His image and likeness, but because of Adam's disobedience to the revealed will and Word of God, the man lost his innocence and incurred the penalty of death.  Man is not capable of restoring himself apart from the salvation which is the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 2:14).

            We believe each person should seek to be a member of a local body of believers, however, church membership and baptism are not a pre-requisite for salvation (Luke 23:43).
