Rooted In Identity — Jeremy Cairs

You’re not a prophet because of what you do. You are a prophet because it’s who God says you are. It’s identity first and function later. And the function, or anointing, of each particular prophet is uniquely defined by God, shaped by their gifts, and directed by their assignment. God develops prophets…(Read More)

What Are You Afraid To Lose? Saul's Roots & Issues

Most people never intend to reproduce the downfall of king Saul; but unfortunately, many do. 1 Samuel 9 shows us that he began as a young man who was only concerned with his father’s business—his own inheritance, his very future. He didn’t begin power hungry, controlling, and hard-hearted. He only ever…(Read More)

Mark 11:22-24 (ESV) And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. 23 Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him…(Read More)

Elitism has no place in the Church, except to be laid down at the altar. It must collapse every time it rises, and that collapse often comes in the form of a slow decline into spiritual dryness. It will slowly damper the voice of the Lord within until you hear less of Him and more…(Read More)

Were Adam & Eve... Vegans? — Jeremy Caris

This has been a recurring question I’ve been asked over the years. Probably because I’m an unashamed carnivore. I’ve had quite a few conversations and a few long-term discussions on this topic. The idea is that if Adam and Eve didn’t eat meat before the fall, before they sinned by…(Read More)

All Natural Church Growth Plan - Jeremy Caris

  Church growth and building up the body are not necessarily the same things. In other words, church growth doesn’t build up the body; but building up the body will cause church growth. This may sound over-simplified, but I believe that if you equip and build up the people you have, the body…(Read More)

“Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear—but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.” 1 Peter 3…(Read More)

Fivefold Ministry — Jeremy Caris

Fivefold Ministry

by

Ephesians chapter four makes it clear that there are five expressions of the one ministry mantle of Christ: apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, and teacher. Some in the Church today do not believe that people can operate in the office, or official capacity, of all five expressions any longer, but that is another topic altogether. I…(Read More)

Spiritual Narcissism — Caris Ministries | Jeremy Caris

Although narcissism is a broad subject, it is marked by an exaggerated self-importance and perceived superiority, abnormal levels of selfishness and entitlement, and extreme self-centeredness. Generally speaking, a narcissist is a person who thinks too highly of themselves and continuously feeds on the egotistic admiration from others, typically rooted in unresolved and exaggerated…(Read More)

We’ve been asked so many times if we are in Texas or Tennessee that I felt it was time to send out a public update. Long story short, we’re still in Tennessee. We did everything we could to sell our home and move to Texas, but in the end the Lord put that…(Read More)
