"...this is NOT religion, its Salvation"
Hello there and thanks so much for visiting our corner of the World Wide Web.
Our Mission at Emerald Leaf Ministries is: 1st, to share the true gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ, the only means to escape Hell and have a home in Heaven. 2nd, to encourage Christians to get involved in some way to reach others for Christ; to be bold with the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ our Lord, our God, our savior. Furthermore, that this be done in all humility and most loving way possible. 3rd, to provide tools to properly and effectively spread the gospel, and to explore even ALTERNATIVE, and maybe UNCONVENTIONAL avenues that few others have explored as means through which to seek the lost and present the good news of Salvation. . . STOP !
CLICK THAT BUTTON before you go any further if you DON'T know beyond a shadow of a doubt that when you die, if you'll be going to Heaven, than you need to click 'How to KNOW You're Going to Heaven'. Ask yourself, if there was a way to know for sure how to get to Heaven, wouldn't you want to know about it? CLICK the appropriate button on the left because there is NOTHING more important than your eternal salvation. Think about it, you don't want to die in your sins and go to HELL. Your soul, your eternity is nothing to gamble with. One day you WILL die, wouldn't you like to have eternal assurance? So, PLEASE, if your not 100% sure if you were to die THIS MINUTE that you'd be in Heaven, CLICK that button. Anyone of us could be cast into eternity at any moment, at which point it will be too late to make such decisions. We all will spend eternity SOMEWHERE, so shouldn't you make sure you KNOW . . . ?
A Message from our Founder...
I'm Bro.T.B. Moffitt III, minister and co-founder of Emerald Leaf Ministries. I wanted to extend a special Thanks to you for visiting us today. My hope is that our ministry may be a blessing, a help and an inspiration to you. Check in with us from time to time as content may be added. The priority of our website is to spread the good news of salvation, provide sound Christian teacher/resources and to encourage other believers to get involved in some form of evangelism. With God's blessing, my goal is that this website might grow into a full bodied 'one stop' resource where born again Christians can come and get answers and the support they need, whatever their needs may be. My vision is to attract a community of individuals who love people and above all love God, and who seek the truth of God's word and righteousness. Our wish is to guide other believers as to how to share their faith in effective ways, while done in the most kind, loving and respectful manner.
Here are a few things about me: I first became an Ordained Minister in 2009. I am a red blooded American born Celt (wait, does than make me green blooded...? Hmm) I was born and raised here in the state of Oregon by my grandparents. I came to a saving knowledge of Christ in my early teens, and rededicated my life to Christ around the time of my marriage to my wife Mindy. The Lord blessed us with one child together, a wonderful daughter who loves the Lord and who's currently enrolled at Bible college. We are also worked as foster parents for several years, so we've had other children whom we'd shared our home with and treated them as our own. These children were also privileged to attend church with us and hear the preaching of God's inspired word. Though they were not required to participate in songs, prayer or any acts of faith, some of them did find faith in Jesus Christ and have by their own free will requested and voluntarily acted upon their faith. I also worked in children's ministries in Church and have a special place in my heart for youth and families. Its all been a true joy for us and we hope to continue to be used of God however the Lord chooses, to be a blessing in the lives of local families for many years to come.
The founding of this ministry began between 2008 and 2009 while living in a suburb of Portland Oregon and have lived in this state for all our lives. In 2012 we relocated about 3 hours away from Portland to the central Oregon area. We have done a little traveling throughout the country and Canada, and though we've enjoyed it, we are always glad to be back in Oregon. We're not sure if this is where God will have us to stay or not, but we are willing to go where He calls and makes clear paths. (Update: Emerald Leaf Ministries is relocating to Illinois. Check back for further updates).
Although this website has not been a priority in recent years, we would like to revitalize it one day, if that's what God would have us to do. My wife Mindy has a very active Facebook page called "Beauty for Ashes" you may like to visit. She currently works in the health care field. She is a great women whom I am blessed to have. Things early on in our marriage were not always great, but by patience and seeking the Lord, He blessed, and our lives together are better than ever. And God gets ALL the credit for all the ways he has blessed us and used us.
It's my belief that no matter how old a person gets or how many degrees they have under their belt, you should never think of yourself as having "arrived" so to speak, or truly mastered any area of learning. I also believe a person should continue to learn and challenge themselves till the day they die, above all in spiritual matters, in their walk with Christ. I will never say, "I have arrived". I have been a student of God's word most my life and continue to joy in such learning and growth. It makes me sorrowful when I fail the Lord, and It saddens me to see when others suddenly stop growing, or perhaps even taking two steps back. Its also sad to see the older folks stuck, failing to keep growing and serving just the same. "Many moons ago...", if you got on the bad side of a Native American, they might wish upon you (curse you) with the words "may you stay in one place". Stop and meditate on those words for a moment . . . I pray that God will help us all to not "stay in one place" concerning our spiritual growth, to never become stagnant. Also, don't forget where you came from, the lessons you learned, nor to forget what is was like being young. We must always be able to relate to others, and to humbly see ourselves on the same level. We are ALL just a sinful pile of dust and a soul, no better than than any other. And if you believe on Christ alone for your salvation (not yourself, anyone nor any thing else) its only by God's grace through the redemptive, finished works of Christ, and we have no room for boasting.
Thanks for taking the time learn a little more about me. God Bless.
Go with Christ,
Bro. T.B. Moffitt III
