I will surrender my all to God – No Matter the Cost – so that I can become more like Jesus Christ – my brother and King. I will seek out a band of brothers, for whose lives and legacies I will fight, so that together we can fulfill our mission to know, love and glorify God our Father.
"[God] chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers ...." (Rom. 8:29 NLT)
“We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.... So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." (2 Cor. 4:8-17 NLT)
“For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.” (Heb. 4:12)
“And the Saints overcame the accuser because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of their testimony. And they were not afraid to die.” (Rev. 12:11)
Every man dies, but most men do not live a life and have a cause worth dying for. The Band of Brothers are a group of men who desire to live a life and to leave a legacy that has eternal meaning. We are tired, weary, and thirsty – but we are not defeated – and by making the covenant to follow Christ we will be victorious. We are willing to fight to be shining lights in the midst of the darkness. We are willing to lay down our lives for true freedom – true peace. We want to fill our thirsty souls with the love of God and God-obsession rather than sinful addictions and self-obsession. We know we are in a viscous battle against evil. But when we fail and get knocked down – we will get back up again and follow the light. For us, there is no plan B.
These are important days - possibly the last days. Many in our ministry believe this to be true. In this generation, the Kingdom of God is advancing against forces of evil. All of God’s image-bearing children are being called by Christ our King to follow Him in the purpose for which we each were uniquely created. Few will choose say “Yes” to the difficult journey of the “narrow road.” But the Band of Brothers do not want to miss out on our rightful heritage as “brothers of Christ.” Jesus once said, "Anyone who does God's will is my brother." (Mark 3:35) We have pledged our lives to the mission that will echo throughout eternity. And we look forward to the eternal rewards for which we were made to receive. We are a few of the men who have said “Yes” to the call of our King Jesus Christ – to follow Him in battle – to become His disciples – and to become more like Him no matter the cost. And we are challenging other men to do the same – for we know we cannot fight this battle alone. We are crying out to other men to step up to the call and embrace their rightful heritage. The Band of Brothers is a group of men who have made the covenant with God:
- To become a follower and brother of Christ—no matter the cost; and
- To engage in the battle with other like-hearted men in authentic, secret-less relationships.

Jesus called out to them, “Come, be my disciples …” (Matt. 4:19) “The Lord now chose … other disciples and sent them on ahead in pairs….” (Luke 10:1).
