Our story

The Goal Is Life is not just another ministry, it is a movement born out of the teachings of Ransomed Heart in CO. We organise retreats for Australian Christian men and women with the goal to help them find the life that they are meant to live through the works of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Without friends we could not do what we do. TGIL is blessed to have dedicated volunteers who are- like us- inspired by this message of life and determined in helping Christ further His kingdom into this world through the works of Christ.

What we believe

We believe the way a person lives demonstrates much more about their convictions than what they may have to say. However, for those who want to know more about our personale beliefs:

Our beliefs

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, only, infallible Word of God. We believe in the one true God, the Sovereign, eternal creator of all that exists, both seen and unseen. God is also three persons, yet one God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the Son of God, our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. We believe God created mankind in His image. Adam and Eve, the first human beings, disobeyed God and as a result, all of mankind became separated from God; the image of God in man was distorted; mankind became subject to the power of the enemy and the sinful nature was passed on to all their offspring. Because of original sin, human beings are incapable of pleasing or commending themselves to God. The only remedy for mankind’s predicament is redemption through faith in Jesus Christ. We believe that when a person exercises saving faith in Christ, he passes immediately, out of spiritual death into spiritual life and from the old creation into the new, a new nature and a new heart imparted; being justified freely by grace, he is accepted before the Father and accepted and loved as Christ is loved, having his place and portion linked to Christ and one with Christ forever. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that Christ came to this world to offer eternal life for all, and for those who, through saving faith in Christ believe, shall receive eternal life, whereby that life begins directly here on earth with all that Christ has to offer as He proclaimed in Luke 4:18-20 and Isaiah 61:1-3; freedom, clarity, restoration of our hearts and ultimately life that God- our Father- desires for us.
