Spiritual Vitality

…I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

from John 10:10 (NIV)

Spiritual vitality is important because we are spiritual beings. In fact, the vast majority of people all over the world hold to some form of spiritual beliefs.

We believe we were created by an infinite God who placed a longing in our hearts for Him. This explains why nothing in this world can fully satisfy us. St Augustine affirms this notion when he wrote in his Confessions, “Thou hast made us for thyself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it finds its rest in thee.”

It is our joy and delight to point people back to their Creator, to help them discover all they were meant to be so that they can fulfill all they were meant to do.
