Audio Joy

Organization Description: 

God began birthing in our heart a vision for a ministry following visits with relatives in care facilities in Illinois. A great burden began to grow to share God’s redeeming love to those receiving and providing care. There was a fire in our heart to seek God’s will to advance His Kingdom bringing fresh hope and joy to those who struggle to minister to a loved one confined to bed due to illness or aging. A new sense of urgency knowing eternity is just a breath away keeps us in prayer about this dream.

Here, in a nutshell, is our burden for this ministry:

To joyfully share the Gospel with individuals in the last stages of life
To provide personalized resources for Christians to share their faith with unsaved loved ones through the theme of blessing
To provide personalized resources for Christians to express words of blessing for saved loved ones

We believe one of the most powerful concepts in the Word of God and the whole universe is the theme of blessing. The goal of Audio Joy is to help individuals share and receive a blessing. A computerized phone system was set up for callers to record personal greetings that are burned to a CD along with a collection of Scriptures and hymns. The CD is then sent to the family for use in visitation or when they can’t be together.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

We believe in one God, Creator and Lord of the universe, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; Mark 12:29; John 10:30; Acts 5:3-4; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Hebrews 1:1-3)
We believe that the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is God's authoritative, inspired Word, without error in all its teachings, including creation, history, its own origins and salvation. It is the supreme and final authority in all matters of belief and conduct. (Matthew 5:18; John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21; Revelation 22:18-19)
We believe that Jesus Christ, God's Son was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died a substitutionary, atoning death on the Cross, rose bodily from the dead, and ascended to heaven, where as truly God and truly man, He is the only mediator between God and man. (Isaiah 7:14, 9:6-7; Matthew 1:18-25; Mark 14:61-62; Luke 3:22; John 1:1-3, 14, 29, 5:18, 8:58, 10:30; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 2:9; 1 Timothy 2:5; 1 John 5:20)
We believe in the necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit for the individual's new birth and growth to maturity, and for the Church's constant renewal in truth, wisdom, faith, holiness, love, power, and mission. Every believer is called to live and walk in the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit so that he will bear fruit to the glory of God and not fulfill the lusts of the flesh. (John 14:16-17, 26, 15:26-27, 16:7-15; Acts 1:8; Romans 8:9, 14; 1 Corinthians 2:10-11, 6:19, 12:4-13; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Galatians 5:16-18, 22-23; Ephesians 4:30, 5:18-21)
We believe that all people are lost sinners and cannot see the Kingdom of God, except through the new birth, which takes place through repentance of sin and faith toward God. Justification is by grace through faith in Christ alone. (John 1:11-13, 3:16, 5:24, 10:28-30, 14:6; Romans 3:23-26, 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5; Hebrews 7:24-25; 1 Peter 1:18-19; 1 John 5:11-13)
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, which is made up of all believers everywhere in the world. Locally, the church is a group of believers who are organized to do God's will. Its calling is to worship God and witness concerning its Head, Jesus Christ, preaching the Gospel among all nations, and demonstrating its commitment by compassionate service to the needs of human beings and promoting righteousness and justice. (Acts 2:41-47; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 1:22-23; Colossians 1:18; Hebrews 10:25)
We believe that Jesus Christ will personally and visibly return in glory to raise the dead and bring salvation and judgment to completion. God will fully manifest His Kingdom when He establishes a new heaven and new earth, in which He will be glorified forever and exclude all evil, suffering, and death. (John 14:2-3; Romans 14:10-12; 1 Corinthians 15:51-54; 2 Corinthians 5:10; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17; Revelation 20:11-15, 22:12-17)
