The mission statement for the ministry of John Schlitt:

1. To encourage the Christian to grasp the reality that we are on the winning team. Jesus Christ is alive and through Him we are to be victorious in His perfect plan for us - a plan that was designed for us from the beginning of time (Rom. 8:29)

2. To awaken the unsaved out of their slumber of believing the lies the enemy has used to keep them from the truth - the truth that they are made in the image of God and are designed for a relationship with Him through Jesus Christ.

I am a blessed man. I have been saved by a God of second chances. He saved me from suicide and gave me a second chance at life. He protected my family and gave me a second chance at being a husband and father. And, finally, he gave me a second chance in music. He took me from a secular system that was destroying me through drug and alcohol abuse and put me in a Christian band that gave me the opportunity to see God work all over the world.

In the time I have been a Christian, God has continued to put two simple yet life changing messages on my heart - Jesus Christ is alive and wants to come into our hearts to give us eternal life. And, secondly, Jesus Christ has given us everything we need to not just survive but to be victorious!

The Word says that there is a war going on for each one of us - a war in the heavenlies. I see this war taking form in the constant attempts to distort and discredit the character and the ways of God.

In closing, I believe as Christians it is our calling and duty to battle these lies with truth. At every opportunity we need to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ with whatever tool we are given. In my life, it is through the music I sing and sharing my testimony and experiences.
