Cultivating Holy Beauty is a non-profit ministry devoted to awaking, equipping, and walking arm in arm with women as they pursue an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. Our ministry helps women thrive by discovering their true identity and value in Jesus Christ, enabling God to rewrite their hearts, replacing the things they once valued for the things He loves. The overflow of a heart that has been filled with His Spirit will equip believers with the confidence to go and do likewise, making disciples of other women.
At the heart of Cultivating Holy Beauty (CHB) is its discipleship curriculum, written by Jessie North in response to the Lord’s prompting. CHB is designed to elevate, not replace, other ministries by restoring the Bride of Christ with a whole heart. Developed as the women’s companion ministry to Every Man A Warrior, by Lonnie Berger, this curriculum teaches believers how to think on God’s Word with purpose and let it penetrate their hearts so they can learn to love God deeply, be redeemed fully and exalt Him highly. Such fertile hearts posture us for cultivating the pearls of purity, unity and obedience.
- PURITY OF HEART means we are focused on continually evaluating our motives and actions according to the Word of God. It should humble us as we regularly lay ourselves low, yielding so that God can grow this pearl within us. This purity and humility ensures we surrender to His desires first and we remain above reproach with discerning transparency in how we respond to all things. (MATTHEW 5:8, 2 CORINTHIANS 7:1, and JAMES 4:8)
- UNITY OF SPIRIT means we keep our gaze locked on Christ-crucified and resurrected. It is never about us as individuals or as a ministry, only who Jesus Christ is and what He has done. This is what drives us to elevate but never replace. We strive to reflect Christ’s example in our actions, thoughts and emotions, making us all alike in body and spirit as we resemble Him more each day. (PSALM 133:1, 1 CORINTHIANS 1:10, COLOSSIANS 3:13-14 , and EPHESIANS 4:3-6)
- OBEDIENCE TO THE LORD means we walk in Spirit and Truth, testing everything against the Word of God. We believe every Word is flawless and for our teaching, rebuking, correction and training in righteousness. We value the opinion of God above all else and we live to glorify Him alone. (JOHN 4:23-24, JOHN 14:15, and 2 TIMOTHY 3:16-17)
Like the merchant in Matthew 13, who upon finding a pearl of great value sold all that he had and bought it, we have the opportunity to invest in something of great worth to the Kingdom of God. We are invited to co-labor with Him in radically transforming the lives of women, families and churches. If you are interested in introducing Cultivating Holy Beauty in your church or workplace, becoming a donor, or partnering in prayer over this ministry, we encourage you to visit our website at www.CultivatingHolyBeauty.com for more information.
Cultivating Holy Beauty’s vision is to prepare a Bride who is awake and ready for the return of her Beloved, Jesus Christ. We hope you will arise and join us as we bask in His extravagant love!
