Mission

Synergy Ministries is a Christian organization that seeks the spiritual revival of the “whole body” (Ephesians 4:16) through the fruit of goodness: promoting the light of openness and honesty (Ephesians 5:8-10,11-14; John 3:20-21). One of Synergy’s ministries is Answering Problems. Its mission is to answer every problem (Daniel 5:12) on earth (Matthew 6:10) by having the most accurate interpretation of the “knowledge of God” (Col 2:2; Eph 4:13).

Core Values

Core values are biblical principles that all leaders must adhere to. They are a specialized set of beliefs that will best help us meet our goals:

  1. Humility through Correction–The arrogant listen only to be understood (Proverbs 18:2), but the humble listen to understand and change (Proverbs 12:15). Humility is believing your strongest beliefs could be wrong (I Corinthians 8:2; 13:12). Each day, tell others of their sins and learn from those who accuse you (Hebrews 3:13; Titus 2:15).
  2. Unify as One Mind–Go out of your way to seek resolutions for any minor disagreement (I Corinthians 1:10; Philippians 1:27). Do not argue with the weak (Romans 14:1,4); but with the strong and humble, never allow a disagreement, as if you had “one mind” (Philippians 2:2).
  3. Desire the Highest Purpose–Seek the “fullness of Christ” (Eph 4:13; I Corinthians 9:24), yet realize your God-given status (Romans 12:3). Believe God wants to empower you (Philippians 4:13), assuming you stay humble (Matthew 23:12), constantly question your obedience (Philippians 2:12), and desire perfection (Matthew 5:48).

Statement of Faith

The following core doctrines are beliefs that a person must believe to be considered a Christian. Our core doctrine and beliefs are summarized from Titus 3:3-8 and I Corinthians 15:1-6:

  1. (Titus 3:3) Sinful Nature: We are sinners.
  2. (Titus 3:4) Love of God the Father: God the Father is good, kind, and loving.
  3. (Titus 3:4,6) Jesus is GodJesus is a man and also is GodLord, and Savior.  This is known as the hypostatic nature, that Jesus was fully God and fully man.
  4. (Titus 3:5) Repentance through MercyHe causes us to repent of our sins by His mercy, not our works.
  5. (Titus 3:5) Regeneration by the Spirit: The saving happens through regeneration and renewal by the Holy Spirit .
  6. (Titus 3:5-6) Holy Spirit is GodThe Holy Spirit is also God because the saving happens through the Spirit, and the Savior is Jesus.
  7. (Titus 3:6) Gospel: Implicit in “pouring” is the Gospel (I Corinthians 15:1-2): Jesus died for our sins, was buried, was resurrected, and proved His resurrection (I Corinthians 15:3-6).
  8. (Titus 3:7) Eternal LifeWe are justified so we can have eternal life.
  9. (Titus 3:7-8) Justified by Grace for WorksJustification happens only through God’s grace proven by works.

FAQ

What type of problems do you answer?

Using the Bible, we will answer any philosophical, theological, personal, or psychological problem. We don’t answer problems based on facts external to the Bible, such as science or history, because we believe the source of logic (see Logos in John 1:1) can better solve major problems than pointing to what others think (John 17:17).

What is your denomination?

Although we support combining the best of previous denominations, we don’t believe denominations are ideal (I Corinthians 1:10-13). We believe a Christian is anyone who subscribes to biblically defined core doctrine (Titus 3:3-8; I Corinthians 15:1-6), especially in the divinity of Jesus Christ (I John 4:2-3). Instead of saying we follow Luther, the Pope, or any man (I Cor 1:12), we follow Christ alone (Acts 4:11-12). We understand that a denomination is strictly a set of beliefs and culture surrounding a way to follow Jesus, so in that sense, we have our own denomination. But we don’t believe in encouraging others to join our way of thinking; but rather, to seek the “fullness of Christ” (Eph 4:13).

How was this organization founded?

Although our primary Founder is Jesus (Hebrews 12:2), when the founder was 13, he started to read the Bible more seriously. Astonished by its wisdom, he said, “When I’m older, I’m going to solve every problem in the world using the Bible!” As he learned about various denominations and church leadership, he was confused why most churches are not helping the poor and weak in their communities (I John 3:17-18). Although American Christians have enough money, they rarely do anything with it because unity is hard (I Corinthians 1:10-11). It’s easier to arrogantly attack people we disagree with (Proverbs 18:2; II Corinthians 3:9) than unite with them around core doctrine (Titus 3:3-8). God says healthy unity is only possible by achieving the same “knowledge of the Son of God (Ephesians 4:13-14). Only then will the body of Christ be ready (Ephesians 4:16). Maybe then Christians will be known for our love (John 13:35).
