A MANNA Worldwide Ministry
Equip Retreats are designed to help students discover the "Me" that God created them to "Be". In a world where students are searching for their identity we strive to provide unique environments that allow students to better understand how God has shaped and impassioned them to make an eternal impact in this world. We can't wait to help your students discover these integral pieces, while developing a framework and worldview that will sustain them through every aspect of their life.
In a society bent on seeking adventure, pursuing happiness and discovering a sense of purpose, it’s time to Engage the culture. It’s time to Engage students, so they can discover who they are, by discovering the One who made them that way. It’s time to Engage students so they can grow in understanding of their individual strengths not just for their own good, but for the good of those around them and around the world.
With experiences across the country, E3 Ministries’ desire is for every student to have the opportunity to get away, experience honest adventure, find real joy and know true purpose. So that they can know Jesus, experience life change and Engage their own culture on a daily basis.
The Bible is God’s Holy Word, without error, and is the sole authority for life.
We believe that the one true God exists eternally in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that these, being one God, are equal in deity, power, and glory. Psalm 104; Psalm 139; Matthew 10:29-31; 28:19; Acts 17:24-28; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Ephesians 1:9-12; 4:4-6; Colossians 1:16-17; Hebrews 1:1-3; Revelation 1:4-6.
We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man, that He was conceived and born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and sacrificed Himself to be punished in substitution for sinners. By the blood of His cross and His resurrection from the dead, He obtained for us eternal redemption, the forgiveness of sins, and life everlasting. He was raised bodily and ascended to the right hand of the Father. He will return to the earth personally and visibly to consummate His kingdom. Matthew 1:18-25; John 1:1-18; Romans 8:34; 1 Corinthians 15:1-28; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Galatians 3:10-14; Ephesians 1:7; Philippians 2:6-11; Colossians 1:15-23; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-5:11; Hebrews 7:25; 9:13-15; 10:19; 1 Peter 2:21-25; 1 John 2:1-2.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit regenerates and forever indwells all Christians. The Holy Spirit is the divine helper, assistant, counselor, and instructor and His work is to reveal Christ, convict of sin, lead to repentance, guide believers, comfort, strengthen, and sanctify the soul. Joel 2:28; Matthew 3:11; John 1:12-13; Acts 1:8; John 7:37-39; Eph 1:13-14; 5:18.
We believe Adam was created in the image of God, righteous and without sin. In consequence of his disobedience, all people are born subject to sin and are therefore by nature and choice justly condemned in the sight of God, unable to save themselves or to contribute in any way to their acceptance with God. Genesis 1-3; Psalm 51:5; Isaiah 53:5; Romans 3:9-18; 5:12-21; Ephesians 2:1-3.
We believe that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. No ritual, work, or any other activity is required in order to be saved. This saving grace of God, through the power of the Holy Spirit, also sanctifies us by enabling us to do what is pleasing in God’s sight in order that we might be progressively conformed to the image of Christ. We believe that all the redeemed, once saved, are kept by God’s power and are thus secure in Christ forever. John 1:12-13; 6:37-44; 10:25-30; Acts 16:30-31; Romans 3-4; 8:1-17, 31-39; 10:8-10; 1 Corinthians 1:4–8; Ephesians 2:8-10; Philippians 2:12-13; Titus 3:3-7; 1 Peter 1:5; 1 John 1:7, 9.
