Central ThemesI. THE PILLARS OF CHRISTIANITY
It is our desire to promote the fundamental "Pillars of the Christian Church". These, we believe, comprise the foundation of our faith.

II. RECONCILIATION - Loving One Another and Forgiveness
It is our desire that this place of refuge be a place of reconciliation as well, not only between Catholics and Protestants, Christians and Jews, or other different denominations, but more importantly, a place where individuals can come to pray, worship and be reconciled unto God.

|Ephesians 2:15-16||Colossians 1:20||Hebrews 2:17|
III. WHO DO YOU SAY JESUS IS - LIAR, LUNATIC OR LORD?
Jesus asked his disciples, "Who do men say that I am?" Then, turning to them again, he asked, "But who do you say that I am?"
This is the key question! Was Jesus a liar, a lunatic or was he who he said he was - LORD? Each of us must answer that question for ourselves. We at Living Stone Foundation agree with the reply given by the Apostle Peter: "Thou art the Christ, the Son of the Living God." (Matthew 16:16, John 6:69) and that given by Martha: "Yea, Lord, I believe that thou are the Christ, the son of God..." (John 11:27) and, as proclaimed by the eunuch of Ethiopia, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God." (Acts 8:37)
|Luke 9:18-20||John 11:27||1 Timothy 2:5||John 6:14||Revelation 19:13|
IV. THE GREAT COMMISSION
In the Gospel of John, chapter 20:21, Jesus said to his disciples, "...as my Father has sent me, even so send I you." Here we see that Jesus was sent as a lamb among wolves. In Matthew, chapter 10:16, Jesus states, "Behold I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves..."
Jesus, who came as a lamb, sends us forth as sheep into a world filled with wolves (Luke 10:3). These are lost because of their unbelief (2 Corinthians 4:3-4). Our mission is to go among the wolves as followers of Jesus and convert the wolves into lambs. Our principal weapon is the LOVE OF CHRIST. Jesus commissioned us to send the Good News to all (Matthew 28:18-20).
We at Living Stone Foundation feel confident to say that some day - 2 years from now, 36 years from now, 334 years from now, 1709 years from now (should the Lord tarry) - there will be a "wolf" that walks on our path and by the time he or she leaves, they will have become a lamb. No one will have had to open his mouth to speak. The very STONES WILL CRY OUT! (Luke 19-40) For you see, the greatest miracle of all is when a hard heart turns soft. JESUS HAS THE POWER TO CHANGE HEARTS!
