Flourish exists to be an instrument in helping people deepen their relationships with Jesus Christ with times of prayer and worship, inspirational messages, and fellowship with other Christians. God has created each one of us for intimate relationship with Him. As St. Augustine prayed, “Thou hast created us for Thyself, and our heart is not quiet until it rests in Thee.”
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit. Apart from me you can do nothing.”
Flourish is a voice of truth on the trending topics facing our culture today. With personal testimony, the speakers address such topics as the dignity of human life, the sacredness of sexuality, and the freedom to live and declare what we believe. Flourish proclaims Jesus’ liberating truth on what Pope Benedict XVI called the “nonnegotiable” issues of our day.
“If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Flourish welcomes unity in the Body of Christ. St. John Paul II encourages us: “Indeed all the faithful are asked by the Spirit of God to do everything possible to strengthen the bonds of communion between all Christians and to increase cooperation between Christ’s followers…” (Ut Unum Sint 101).
“...Jesus himself prayed at the hour of his Passion, and does not cease praying to his Father, for the unity of his disciples: ‘That they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be one in us, . . . so that the world may know that you have sent me [John 17:21]’”
