Our Mission

“Life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about God’s mighty kindness and love.” Acts 20:24

Embracing Brokenness Ministries (EBM) is a teaching, discipling, and equipping ministry committed to fulfilling God’s greatest commandment to love Him and love others by bringing the gospel of healing in Christ to a broken world. To lead and support those willing to step forward into exploration and understanding of who God is and who they are. To guide those who engage in this mission through a journey of discovery toward God’s divine purpose of reproducing His image throughout the world.

EBM is a teaching ministry and “triage center” focused on fighting the mass exodus from the American church and a Biblical Worldview. In a 2023 study by George Barna , only 4% of American Christians have a biblical worldview—down from 6% in 2021. Our ministry is answering the call to join with like-minded ministries who are moving upstream to address some of the issues that could easily spell the “extinction” of biblical beliefs in our nation.

Although EBM works with all people, the ministry is committed to ensuring that those on the margins: the poor, the broken-hearted, the captive and the prisoner (Isaiah 61) have access to all our resources without cost. 

A specific focus of EBM is to see broken lives restored from the consequences of the Fall described in Genesis 3. Since the most devastating consequences have been relational, our teaching materials are organized around four key areas. Relationally, man fell from:

  • God: our relationship with God was severed and we developed negative views of God. 
  • Self: Our identity was hijacked to the point where most of us cannot answer the question “Who am I”, “Why am I here?”, or “What is my purpose?”
  • Others: many of us avoid community and even church, as we have been harmed by others who are not loving, authentic, safe, or healed–bearing no resemblance to the community for which we were created–modeled after the communion of the Trinity.
  • Creation: since all creation was subjected to futility (Romans 8:20), it is not functioning according to Shalom and produces much suffering for man. The curse on the ground includes man having to work very hard and often for very little or no return. 

Jesus’ sacrifice paid the price for us to be fully restored in all these areas and to become restorers–reconcilers ourselves, bringing the full gospel to a world in desperate need. We are committing to exposing the enemy’s lies of a very small gospel that does not allow us to fulfill the greatest commandments–love God, love others, and by implication love self.

Through our teaching, we help to explore areas of life where false beliefs about God – which often lead to false views of self and others – hinder spiritual formation. In addressing personal brokenness we can fulfill the greatest commandments: to love God with all of our heart, soul, and mind and to love others as ourselves. That is accomplished through helping position others to receive true healing, which can only come through Jesus.

The challenge is to embrace the broken places in ourselves. The wounded and traumatized places where life-altering experiences occurred. Perhaps through the influence of others or through our own choices. Healing from those wounds comes only through a posture of intimacy with God. One that allows Jesus to step into those hurts and re-interpret life from His vantage point, calling out our true identity as Child of God.

Our Commitment is

  • To love God and love others by bringing the gospel of healing through Jesus Christ to a hurting world.
  • To love others as directed by the Holy Spirit in every encounter.
  • To teach others that a personal and intimate relationship with Jesus Christ is possible and how to practically experience that intimacy in their daily walk with Him.
  • To live authentically and without pretense the journey that leads us to a greater understanding of who we are and who God is.
  • To expose the enemies’ attempt to exploit the wounds and traumas that each of us experience and deliver the good news of His healing presence.
  • To teach the blessed HOPE that the Bible calls the “Anchor of the Soul”. The hope offered only by Jesus Christ.
  • To never give in and never give up under heavy fire from an enemy that seeks to destroy us.
