We are looking at preparing the church for the restoration of this generation so it will stand through the test of time. The Lord is doing it out of His love for His people. God has given us this dispensation of time to do something significant for Him. We have been made for this time and for God’s purpose.
We can prepare the church for the next move of God. This generation cannot repair and restore themselves, those pre-this generation are essential. If they withhold what they have, the church will suffer. With righteousness comes change. God has already come and He has been moving. He has been reconciling His people back unto Him. Change can only come through righteousness. We are excited about change because we know it is time to move forward.

If we don’t rise to another level of righteousness, then we cannot know god fully. We can’t experience the power of the holy spirit. We are here for a righteous cause; recovering those who are lost, rebuilding what has been torn down and repairing some bridges. God is calling us to righteousness. With a call to righteousness comes a call to respond to a righteous cause.
