Ministry of Conservation

 

“Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.”   John 15:16

 

Statement of Purpose

“Conservation” is planned management of natural resources.  In the religious sense, it can be said that “conservation” is planned management of spiritual resources.  Therefore, the bible admonishes us to bear fruit, and that our fruit should remain.  From a vine we look for grapes, and from a Christian we look for spiritual stabilization, consistent fellowship, and good Christian disposition: we seek to prevent the decay or loss of these spiritual resources.
