Vision: To lavishly pursue the beauty of God and infuse this truth into the lives of women.

Belief statement: Jesus is the one true God. I believe he died for our sins on the cross. I believe he is resurrected. I believe, through grace, I am in relationship with him.

I believe God is beautiful. I believe because woman is made in the image of God, woman is beautiful.
I believe God seeks to not only rescue and restore woman but to also beautify.
I believe a beautiful life is the manifestation of worship into the everyday, and active adoration overflowing into divine purpose.
I believe a woman becomes beautiful when she has a deep assurance she is loved and adored by God and by his truth she is free.
My kingdom position is in the battalion on mission to reclaim and restore in double portion the beauty of woman which was stolen, destroyed and disfigured by evil.
