HeavyGrace embraces a biblical perspective on sin, repentance, forgiveness, and faith. We celebrate God's promise of radical gospel transformation and anticipate changed hearts and lives because of it. We challenge people to take God at his Word, to push it from concept to concrete. We also understand that we are embodied souls; physical and emotional injury, disease, and aging cause real pain that often affects how we see God, ourselves, and others. We seek practical ways to ease suffering and to honor each person's dignity as having been uniquely made to worship and reflect the beauty and grace of God.
Looking toward God and embracing his design for us isn't always easy. Suffering can complicate things even more. But when we opt for independence from him, there are consequences ranging from spiritual death to different degrees of personal dissatisfaction and dysfunction. Even the ways in which we interpret, experience, and express suffering can be contrary to our divine design. But in all of this, there is hope! Because of Christ, we can actually become new creatures who live a new and better way. God demonstrates this love for us: While we were still sinners cut off from God, Christ died to bring us back. This rescue and redemption accomplished through Christ alone makes us right with God, gives us peace with him, and opens the way for us to explore and experience the life-altering fact that God is in the life-changing business. Commending the implication and application of this very good news to every corner of life is what HeavyGrace is about.
