Transformation Through Incarnation
Transformed lives, transformed families, transformed communities. That is what we would like to see in our city. That’s the ultimate goal of life-on-life ministry. These days the word "transformation" is overused to the point of being cliche. But the essence of the word speaks to radical, 180-degree change—complete metamorphosis.
At GRIP, we realize that Jesus Christ is the only one who can transform hearts. And we rest in the reality that He is working through us—through our mentors, our staff, and our partners—to accomplish this in His time. The incarnation is the act of God becoming man in the form of Christ (John 1:14). And, for Christians, because Christ is now in us, those who truly want to live as Jesus lived must go where He would go—to the hurting and the broken, to the prostitutes and tax collectors, to the widows and the fatherless.
