What is Constant Source?

Constant Source is an independent non-denominational Christian resource company. Our goal is to reimagine family discipleship through relevant Christian resources. Our resources equip parents to engage confidently and comfortably with their kids on the topic of Christianity and empowers families to journey together as they are transformed to look more like Jesus Christ. To accomplish this goal, we publish a weekly devotional geared towards educating and equipping parents, consistently post helpful information on faith development on our blog, we partner with churches to help equip families, provide inspiration through our social media channels, and are currently working on drafting and editing our first two books.

Inspiration Behind Constant Source

After nearly 10 years working in the church, we’ve seen over and over again that the Church is filled with amazing parents; parents who love their kids and go to great lengths to meet the needs of those God has entrusted to them. It has also been our experience that parents desire to have a deep and meaningful relationship with God, and desire the same for their children. Yet, the disconnect comes when parents at times can feel ill-equipped to be the spiritual leaders of their home. This is not their fault. As many of us experience daily in our careers, we live in a hyper-specialized society. A society that prides itself on creating economic margin so that many of its citizens can focus on, acquire, and master a unique set of skills. Much good has come from this, but one of the unfortunate byproducts of hyper-specialization is that when we operate outside of our main skill set, we often feel unprepared and inadequate for the task at hand. Yet, research shows that children with parents who consistently carry on conversations about Jesus, who share their own spiritual journeys, and are brave enough to share their experiences of doubt with their kids tend to be those whose faith sticks with them for their entire lives. Here we start to see the tension…. Children and teens need their parents to be the key spiritual coach in their lives. It is this juncture, family discipleship, that needs to be reimagined and Constant Source is here to help!

Our Essentials

  • We believe in the one, true, and triune God who is God the Creator, God the Redeemer (Jesus Christ), and God the Sustainer (Holy Spirit).

  • We believe that God created the entire universe out of nothing, breathing life into existence.

  • We believe in the Imago Dei, which is Latin for God’s image. We believe that all of humankind is created equally in the image of God.

  • Because of the trinitarian nature of God in which we were made, we believe that we were made for relationship with God, with others, and with the rest of creation.

  • We believe that sin isolates us from our relationship with God and robs us of becoming all that God intended for us to be.

  • We believe that God loved us so much that God wasn’t interested in being God without being in relationship with us. As a result, God decided to send Jesus Christ to reconcile us back into relationship through living the perfect life.

  • We believe that Jesus Christ was God with us, incarnate, which means that we believe that Jesus Christ was 100% human and 100% divine.

  • We believe that Jesus Christ perfectly embodied a holy life of love and relationship with God and with people. We believe that the accounts recorded in the Gospels are examples of the ways in which God was healing, reconciling, and renewing all of creation into that for which it was created.

  • We believe that Jesus Christ lived, died, and rose from the dead to redeem humanity of their sin and allow us to once again be in full relationship with God.

  • We believe that after Jesus Christ ascended to heaven, the Holy Spirit was sent to guide, sustain, transform, and empower Christians to be ambassadors of Jesus Christ on earth.

  • We believe that the goal of Christian life is to love God with all of who we are and to love others as Jesus first loved us, which means living a life transformed through the power of the Holy Spirit.

  • We believed we are called to live like Jesus Christ.

  • We believe in the Bible, that it is Holy, inspired by God, and supposed to serve as the main guidebook on our journey towards Christ’s likeness.

  • We believe in the Church, which is the body of Christ, and that it is to be the example of the unity, community, and love of Jesus Christ to the world.

  • Lastly, we believe that all people are equally loved by God and therefore should be equally cared for and loved as children of God.
