We envision the true body of Jesus Christ (1)reaching out to individuals who experience hopelessness and helplessness living without hope in the true Liberator, (2)bearing suffering with one another, as each part of a body is deeply interconnected, with sincerity and love, and (3)glorifying the Creator of the universe, the triune God who exists in the eternal fellowship of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
Regardless of our differences, all human beings have something in common: We all suffer one way or the other whether in finance, health, spirit, or relationship, struggling to push through, sinking miserably, and desperately needing the common Savior who can liberate us from the endless cycle of pain, disappointment, and fear. Jesus overcame our brokenness and the origin of all types of suffering on the cross.
Being affiliated with Joni and Friends, JD Kim ministries is a Christian, 501 (c)(3), non-profit organization dedicated to serve those who experience suffering, especially physical pain and disability, by sharing God’s unconditional love that regenerates all brokenness and bearing our suffering together as one body of Jesus the Christ through the fellowship of the Holy Spirit.
WE BELIEVE that the 66 books of the Bible, as written in the original writings, are the true, inspired Word of God, written by various biblical writers through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, infallible in that the Scripture has no error in delivering and demonstrating God’s purpose and truth and authoritative and is the rule of life.
WE BELIEVE that there is one God who exists as the unity of the three persons of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. From the beginning, the Godhead always exists as triune, without being created, sharing equal divine, infinite, and relational essence with the Father, Son, and Spirit, the infinite, sovereign, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love. Within the inner-life of the Trinity, the perfect form of love and holiness flourishes, without hierarchy or subordination, for each person of God is fully God and shares the absolute divine attributes.
WE BELIEVE that God made human beings in his image and likeness. After God made the world and saw that it was good, he created humankind in His image and likeness to rule over his creation. The Creator created human beings according to his image, power, will, and plan. Male and female created in God’s image were very good, so that human beings require neither an evolution nor further progressive engagement to be better creation.
WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ, the living Word, became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. He who is true God became true man united in one Person forever. He died on the cross a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. On the third day He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He now is our High Priest and Mediator.
WE BELIEVE that being estranged from God and condemned by our sinfulness, our salvation is wholly dependent upon the work of God’s free grace. God credits His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation, and thereby justifies them in His sight. Only such as are born of the Holy Spirit and receive Jesus Christ become children of God and heirs of eternal life.
WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the triune God, has come to glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to our hearts, convicting us of sin and draws us to the Savior and indwelling our hearts. He gives new life to us, empowers and imparts gifts to us for service. He instructs and guides us into all truth, and seals us for the day of redemption.
WE BELIEVE that the true Church is composed of all persons who profess saving faith in Jesus Christ and participate in the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit. In the Church, the Word of God is preached, the sacraments are administered, scriptural discipline is practiced, and loving fellowship is maintained. The church fulfills the Great Commission and awaits the return of her Lord.
WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ will come again to the earth personally, visibly, and bodily—to judge the living and the dead, and to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.
