What we're about
Mission & Methods
Strengthen the fitness community for Christ-centered living and impact
Engage by inspiring the fitness community through authentic relationships, social media (https://instagram.com/faithrxd/), and competition presence
Equip our community by providing enriching content (http://faithrxd.org/), “Iron Sharpens Iron (http://faithrxd.org/events/category/global)” weekend training camps, chapter events (http://faithrxd.org/events/category/local) in cities around the world, and an “IMPACT” conference for chapter leadership teams
Expand when our leaders and those whom they influence are becoming mature disciples of Christ, making new disciples, and serving their communities
Our relationships will demonstrate steadfast commitment to Jesus Christ and His Word through:
Integrity: We will demonstrate Christ-like wholeness, privately, and publicly. (Proverbs 11:3) (http://biblia.com/bible/esv/Proverbs%2011.3)
Unity: We will express our unity in Christ in all our relationships. (Philippians 2:1-4) (http://biblia.com/bible/esv/Philippians%202.1-4)
Service: We will model Jesus’ example of serving. (John 13:1-17) (http://biblia.com/bible/esv/John%2013.1-17)
Excellence: We will honor and glorify God in all we do. (Colossians 3:23-24) (http://biblia.com/bible/esv/Colossians%203.23-24)
The term “RXD” is pulled from medicine and applied to functional fitness to also mean following a set protocol “as prescribed.” A coach programs a workout with desired movements, ranges of motion, weights, sets and reps. The athlete either accomplishes the work as prescribed (RXD) or must scale/modify to accommodate lesser ability or readiness to do the work. Applied to faith, Jesus provided the ultimate example of carrying out the Father's will, “RXD,” fully accomplishing his prescribed mission by dying on the cross in exchange for our sins despite extreme pain, suffering and sacrifice (John 15:13). FAITH RXD encourages commitment to following His example: “Therefore, be imitators of God, as dearly loved children. And walk in love, as the Messiah also loved us and gave Himself for us, a sacrificial and fragrant offering to God.” (Ephesians 5:1-2). We seek to live out our faith in a similarly obedient way, as prescribed by God through His Word, the Bible.
Competitors admit they can't please God with their performance, accept Christ's performance on the Cross as their own as His free gift, and chase after Him as Lord of their life in gratitude and obedience.
The Bible: The scriptures of the Old & New Testament as being verbally inspired by God and inerrant and infallible in the original writings, and that they are of supreme and final authority. 2 Timothy 3:16, 17; 2 Peter 1:20,21; Matthew 5:18; John 16:12,13
The Godhead: We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons–Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, co-eternal in being, co-eternal in nature, co-equal in power and glory, having the same attributes and perfections (Deuteronomy 6:4; 2 Corinthians 13:14).
The Person and Work of Jesus Christ: That Jesus Christ was begotten by God, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born to the virgin Mary. That the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the basis of His shed blood. In the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, His ascension into heaven and His present life there as High Priest and Advocate for us. That all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again by the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God and heirs of eternal life. John 1:1,2,14; Luke 1:35; Romans 3:24; 1 Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 1:3-5; Acts 1:9, 10; Hebrews 7:25, Hebrews 9:24; Romans 8:34; 1 John 2:1-2
The Second Coming of Christ: We believe in the blessed hope, which is the personal, visible and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
The Holy Spirit: That the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, who convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment. He is the life of the believer and He empowers the preaching and teaching of the Gospel. John 16:8-11; 2 Corinthians 3:6; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 5:18)
Mankind: That mankind was created in the image of God, sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death, but spiritual death, which is separation from God, and that human beings are born with a sinful nature. Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12
The Church: Of whose mission it is to preach the Scriptures to all the world, all of its endeavors being guided by multiple leadership and supported by the wise stewardship of God's people.
