A Gospel-Focused Expedition
Prayerfully, we desire to come alongside Christian individuals, families, and churches in order to generate a movement of Christian discipleship that is characterized by a zealous striving to honor Christ in all areas of life. The only way that is possible is for us to be laser focused on the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the amazing truth that tells us that what God demands from us, He provides for us.
How? In His own Son. The gospel is the message that Jesus Christ came to exchange His life for ours. The Just for the unjust! It is a message of amazingly wonderful love! He loved sinful wretched humanity enough rescue us by His own death on the cross of Calvary. Through the Gospel we find forgiveness as our Creator God has begun a movement to undo death, ruin, decay, and darkness. The universe itself is going to be restored.
But to be part of this movement, we have to die. We die to ourselves as we relinquish our self-centered identities. As we submit to His grace, we are made new as well, we are resurrected and restored to live a new life in light of the glorious Gospel of Christ our King. Everything in our lives begin to pass through the filter of the Gospel.
To be gospel-focused means that all matters in our life are to be viewed in light of the Gospel. At ZealousHomes, we are committed to a Gospel-Focused mission. In everything we produce, we are unashamedly looking to the Lord of the Gospel for our direction. The Gospel trumps every other issue and orders all of our priorities.

A Discipleship-Centered Expedition
When you look in the New Testament, the word "disciple" is mentioned around 269 times, the word "Christian" is recorded three times. In our culture, we have created an atmosphere where it is okay to become a Christian but not a disciple. This new Christian Discipleship is no longer about really following Christ and having a radical devotion to Him. We have a culture that thinks it is possible to be a Christian and have absolutely no progress towards spiritual growth and discipleship in our lives. According to Jesus, this is a problem. Jesus gave us two simple words: "follow me" (Matt. 4:19). In Matthew 16:24, Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me" (ESV). In the mind of Christ, true discipleship costs us something. We have to deny our own lives, be willing to lose our life, and follow Jesus completely.
Christian discipleship is about following Christ, growing in Christ, serving Christ, and sharing Christ! It is a radical call to become more like Jesus in every dimension of our lives. Discipleship is not knowing more information about Jesus, but truly knowing Jesus, being known by Jesus, and being transformed into His image for His glory. Jesus’ final instruction to His followers was to “go and make disciples."

A zealous man in religion is pre-eminently a man of one thing. It is not enough to say that he is earnest, hearty, uncompromising, thorough-going, whole-hearted, fervent in spirit. He sees one thing, he cares for one thing, he lives for one thing, he is swallowed-up in one thing — and that one thing is to please God.
