-Life how God sees it-

The “bigger picture”

In the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes, chapter 3, verse 11, the Bible says, “He (God) has placed eternity in our hearts.” God has placed a longing in all of us to know more about the “bigger picture” in life.

The Bible

We believe that life’s questions are answered in the Bible – our Creator’s holy Word to us. This makes it different from any other book or information source.

God sees life differently

God also shows us in the Bible that He sees life very differently from us. God wants every person to come and find out more about Him through reading the Bible, and to gain an understanding of His way – the only true way – of seeing, thinking and living life.

Know your Creator

If you have questions about God or the Bible we can answer them for you. We are passionate about enabling women to know our awesome Creator better! We can walk you through Bible studies here at the office, and we can give you a Bible to take home so that you can go deeper in learning in your own time. Just Contact us and we’d be happy to help.

God says:

“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

Isaiah 55:9

-God’s design for right living-

Making good choices

The way we think and see life shapes our decisions and has huge, lasting and serious consequences for our lives. God is good, loving, and holy, and He has given us the Bible to educate us and enable us to live in a way that is morally right and good for our well-being.

Relying on God

God never intended for us to have to figure things out by ourselves, He wants us to go to Him for understanding. God has specified in the Bible what is right and wrong, and what is wise living. His commands are for our good.

Accountable to God

In the end we are accountable to our Creator for how we have chosen to live life. Here at Alpha Women’s Center we have a deep and ultimate respect for God’s laws and design for life. Everything we do comes from our regard and love for Him and His holy Word to us.

God says:

“The rules of the LORD are true, and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover, by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.”

-God’s design for womanhood-

Designed for relationship

God shares with us in the Bible His design for womanhood. Above everything, God designed girls and women to know Him, be close to Him, spend time with Him and enjoy Him forever! Sadly this is not how any person starts out in life, but regaining this right relationship with God is possible through the work that Jesus Christ has done. You can find out more about enjoying a personal relationship with God and what Jesus did for you in the Know God personally section.

Body mind and soul

God designed people to be like Him in ways that animals cannot: Each of us has a soul, a personality, a complex mind, deep emotions, and the ability to consciously make choices. There is so much more to us than our bodies! In fact, God is A LOT less concerned with the appearance of our bodies than we are – to Him, a woman’s true beauty is all about the person on the inside.

God says:

“Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.”

1 Peter 3:3-4

Equal and special

God has made women equal in value to men, but He has given us some different physical, mental, and emotional traits.

Our purpose

He has also carefully selected some unique roles for us that work in harmony with a woman’s body and soul. Whether we are married or single, young or old – God intends all women to be a good influence on the people around us. He has made us to be nurturing, creative, hard-working, intelligent, and fun-loving – all things that should work together to honor God, benefit others, and satisfy our souls.

-How God sees you-

God specially made you

God made you, and He has carefully chosen your personality, gifts, and abilities. You are precious to God and loved by Him.

God cares for you

When you were a child, He designated the role of caring for you to your parents. If you are married, He wants your husband to love you and treat you right.

God knows your pain

God knows the times when you have been hurt by others and He feels deeply grieved when any woman is mistreated or abused at the hands of another. God understands what suffering feels like, because when God came to earth incarnate in the man called Jesus Christ – He was humiliated, rejected, and even put to death by others. You can find out more about Jesus’ time on earth, how and why He died, and how He came back to life from the dead in the Know God personally section.

God’s compassion for women

Though God came to earth in a man’s body, He does understand the sorrows of a woman’s life in ways that we can’t even fathom! If you have suffered women’s health problems, if you are pregnant and scared, if you have miscarried, if you have undergone a long and difficult labor, if you have struggled to breastfeed your child, if you are widowed, or if you have barely enough money to look after your family – God sees and God cares.

Jesus’ treatment of women

One of the reasons we can be sure of this is by looking at how Jesus treated women during his time on earth. Every woman who met Jesus experienced His love, kindness and compassion. He had time for women that others would consider “second-class citizens.” While Jesus made it very clear that He did not condone sin such as sexual immorality, He also showed that every person is deserving of respect and love and the chance to start over.

Jesus our role model

Here at Alpha Women’s Center – we look to Jesus as our role model for how we treat you. You may not be living a life-style that we encourage, but we will never withhold respect and love from you.

Jesus is waiting for you!

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11:28

-Know God personally-

No perfect women at Alpha!

Every woman who works for us here at the Alpha Women’s Center would tell you herself that she is far from perfect – that she sins, and that her life has challenges. However, each staff member has a personal relationship with God, and He brings each of us so much incredible joy!

Joyful women at Alpha!

No matter what life throws at us –all of us women here at Alpha know that we are loved and forgiven for our sins by God. We know for sure that we have eternal life, and we know that God will turn all the sinful and painful parts of our lives into some greater good. (You can find out more about our stories on our Meet the team page).

Are you longing for more?

All this certainty, joy, and intimacy with God is only possible through knowing Him personally. Would you like to experience this special joy-filled relationship with your Creator? Would you like to be forgiven for your sins and have a new start? Would you like to know for sure that you’ll go to heaven when you die?

The way to know God

God tells us in the Bible that there is one way – and one way only – for these things to happen. What you must do is acknowledge your sinfulness and trust solely in what Jesus Christ has done for you on the cross.

Who is Jesus?

Jesus is the Son of God, who came to earth as a perfect, flawless man who never sinned. His human nature and life are in stark contrast to ours because we are sinners who offend our holy God with our moral uncleanness. And God says that the only fitting punishment for our sin is death.

Jesus’ work for you

Because of His great love for us, God allowed His innocent Son to die in our place by crucifixion (being nailed to a cross) to take away our sins. This was a gruesome death, but Jesus agreed to give Himself up for you and me. After three days of death, God raised Jesus back to life in His body proving to us who Jesus is and what His death accomplished for us.

Believe today!

The biggest decision you’ll ever make in your life is deciding whether you believe in what God has done for you through Jesus Christ. God tells us in the Bible that if we don’t believe, we will all face the justice of eternal punishment for our sins. God wants to save you from that, and He also wants to bring you into a personal and everlasting relationship with Him from this day forward.

How to receive Jesus

All you must do is call out to Jesus – He is listening! Admit to Him your sinfulness and that you understand death is the punishment for sin. Tell Him you place all your trust in His work to cleanse you and make you right with God. Jesus will respond to you at that moment and you will begin to understand the deep wonders and joy of knowing God personally.

We can help

If you have just placed your trust in Jesus, we’d love to know and celebrate with you! We can give you more information about living life with God. If you’re interested in knowing God personally but still have some questions or reservations – we’d be happy to talk things through with you. Email any of our staff members on our Meet the team page and they will answer your questions.
