We at Budoshin White Tiger Hapkido Federation have a strong goal that is ever present in our hearts and minds and those of our associates. Our goal is to bring as many people to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as we possibly can. The last commandment that Jesus gave to His disciples was to go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. Most of us spend our lives chasing the wrong things, all material things. The Bible says: why should a man gain the world and lose his soul? We all need to remember that we should build up treasures in heaven and not here on earth. The treasures that we build in heaven, comes only from the souls we bring into heaven with us. I challenge everyone of you that reads this mission statement, to let this goal be your goal as well.
In winning souls to the kingdom, we find that it takes having a close relationship with people in order to be able to witness to them and love them into a relationship with Jesus. They have to feel the love of Christ through us, in order to thirst for what we have. I once heard my Pastor say that, we are the salt of the earth. Salt is suppose to make us thirst. How do you taste? Do you make others around you thirst for what you have in your heart? This is exactly what we do here in the BWTHF, we accept all people, all styles and all denominations. We embrace and love everyone, Saint and Sinner alike!
We would like to see our future goals come to pass, our students continuing to build relationships with people, while teaching Christian Martial Arts. The cycle will continue as our students, bring up another generation of teachers that teach. The beauty of it all, is when the leadership of this organization is gone, the seeds we are planting now will continue to sprout and replant. The only way we will see the harvest of the seeds we are sowing, is when we all get to heaven. The song, “ Thank You for Giving to the Lord” best describes that day. I hope to see people coming as far as my eye can see, to say thank you for giving to the Lord.
In the Budoshin White Tiger Hapkido Federation, we open and close with prayer, and we have devotionals to start the class. We teach scriptures and require each student to memorize additional scriptures as they go higher in rank. We teach in the beginning, the basic principles to salvation, because we know that everyone will not stick with the martial arts training. This way they learn the basics to salvation so they will come back to it as the Holy Spirit draws them in. The Word says to raise up your children in the ways of the Lord and they will return to it.
We have found that many people will not darken the door of a church, but they will come to martial arts training. Our schools and mentoring programs reach out to everyone that darkens our door and we often lead people to the Lord by showing an example of living for God. Martial Arts training requires discipline, and commitment to be able to stick with it. Martial Arts also teaches life lessons and commitment.
Our outreach program is offered to every one of all ages, even though we really like to work with children at an early age to mentor them and lead them into being great Martial Artist and productive leaders in their communities in the future.
