On behalf of the entire West Family let us say ‘Welcome.” We are so thankful that you typed out “Shane West” or “Pastor Shane West” in a search engine, or by some chance came across a link that led you to the Lion’s Den now known as The Pride of Judah Ministries – What Champions Strive For. We are delighted to have you here. Join us on one of our other Social Media Platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.
To give you some idea of what we’re all about, I’ll quickly sketch some of our foundational beliefs.
Our vision and the things of God have brought us to understand that when we make God centered connections, loving those around us just as they are, those connections almost always lead to mighty grace conversions. It thrills our family to witness other families have total spiritual awakenings, or receive a deeper understanding that depends their relationships with Jesus Christ, God manifested in the flesh!
So firstly, we’re all about Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus was who He said he was, the Son of God who was God, that slipped on flesh as a man would slip on a coat! He came and died for our sins. He left His Heavenly riches so that we can leave our Earthly hurts, hang ups, habits, and pain and poverty to live with Him. He left riches and glory so that we would not die a beggars death, but have our very own unique story of redemption. From a doctor to a lawyer, a scientist to Senator, to the poverty stricken or perhaps the President…EACH need Jesus Christ, because there is simply no other way. In Heaven, Jesus had no mother and on Earth He had no Biological Father, thus the birth by a virgin named Mary. Yes the King of the Jews was born of a virgin so that we could be born again through repentance, water baptism in Jesus Name and God’s Powerful Spirit. He’s truly what life is all about for us!
Secondly we’re all about people. Every person who walks into our lives is important to us, and we keep our focus on holding towels and not titles! (in other words Christ came to serve and wash feet, He did not come to be a church denominational leader) Shane West cares more about towels to serve others and do not desire a “title” in the church arena!
As a group (or a pride) of God’s people we care about you and your family and we’re here not only to feed you spiritually, but to help in any way we can. We love doing it and it’s why we exist!
Thirdly, we’re all about a culture of Honor in relationships. We hope to cultivate and grow meaningful and positive relationships between one another, but also go further by getting and growing in relationship with God. Christianity is all about a Person, and less about a set of rules and restrictions. That means that we exist to be in a relationship with Someone, that Someone is Jesus Christ, and as we Honor him we desire to live in a culture of honor to others. Those that may serve above, beside, or below. We serve together in honor and not to simply obey a religion that uses his name but never really understand the power, authority, and honor residing in it. Welcome to J U D A H !
