Our mission is to bring glory to Christ by including a Bible verse or its reference on every gift item that is purchased. The sale of these gift items will help support this ministry and will also provide support to other Christian ministries that our Facebook members and followers select. That means your purchase from Full Armor Ministries works as a continuing means of paying it forward.
Located in the beautiful Finger Lakes of New York State, we are often awestruck of the area surrounding us and how beautiful God’s creation is. The vastness of the hills and the lakes are a joy for us to explore and we try to never take for granted all that the Lord has brought into our lives over the years. We are and continue to be many times blessed with family and friends and it is always our hope and prayer that our beliefs encourage them to always seek God’s direction.
We both share a love for the Lord which over the years formed a desire in us to encourage others to diligently seek and arm themselves with God’s word in preparation for his return and an everlasting life with our Creator. We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God. We believe the Bible is the final authority in every area for each individual Christian.
We are currently pacing ourselves through courses given at Koinonia Institute to further our knowledge and acquire a deeper understanding of God’s Word for proper application in our own lives and to be prepared to share with others the hope that is in us. We have completed the Berean track for the Bronze level and are currently working on our Issachar track for the Silver level. We believe in the importance of modeling our hearts and minds to be that of Christ, to extend grace, love, and understanding as we walk through our lives and hopefully touch the lives of others.
Full Armor Ministries slowly evolved many years ago from a single crabapple tree branch which with a little imagination and careful carving and engraving, became our first walking stick. That first walking stick remains an inspiration of design, but more so, inspired us to gift it to a dear friend.
Over the years and many walking sticks later, the idea expanded into what is now Full Armor Ministries. As you skim through our website, you will find that the designed items are symbolically themed based on specific scriptures. In preparing each gift one at a time, they contain uniqueness, individuality, and encouragement for recipients.
It is our hope and prayer that through these gift items, those who receive them are encouraged, inspired and reminded of God’s Word to provide direction for their lives. It is also our hope that you will be blessed in knowing that a portion of proceeds from each gift item purchased aids us in supporting our ministry partners, a pay-it-forward concept. The importance of these partner ministries also concentrates on helping others to come to know and accept Christ. We believe the Lord will use your pay-it-forward contribution to do just that. What an awesome blessing to know that you may be indirectly responsible for bringing someone to know the Lord! This verse from Matthew is referencing laying up your treasures in heaven and we are confident those treasures are with whom we have shared and have accepted the love of the Lord.
Matthew 6:19-20 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.”
Your reaching the heart of an individual could lead them to know the truth that we should all be seeking…everlasting life in heaven with our Lord. There is no better life experience than sharing God’s love and encouraging each other to remain steadfast in His love.
God Bless You,
Mike and Michelle Meixsell
