WHO WE ARE
We're Builder of the Spirit, a
ministry dedicated to world outreach and the
proclamation of an uplifting Word, an
American 501 (c) (3) non-profit
organization that was founded in 2002 by
former contractor - Greg Allen.
Allen recognized God was changing the direction of
his life in 2001. The birth
of a ministerial idea developed soon after and
to term at, of all places, a
yard sale. Greg and his spouse Cindy, an
artist, then acted upon God’s lead.
"We're privileged to be servants." Mr. and
Mrs. Allen confess.
The focus of the ministry is upon the Word.
Our mission is to feed minds, the
of man. This organization is a supply house for

BLUEPRINT FOR SALVATION
Is Jesus still interested in us?
What does it mean to have a personal
relationship with Christ, and in what way does
it impact our lives? And how does
go about making that kind of commitment?
Those are good questions, and typical of someone
who understands the
Jesus. Here is some information
to help answer these and other
questions you may have about Jesus.
Because of Jesus' resurrection, his followers do
not honor a dead Builder.
have a personal relationship with him. Jesus
Christ lives today and faithfully enriches the lives of all those who trust and
him. Throughout the centuries multitudes have acknowledged Christ. There is a
vacuum in the heart of every man which only God can
fill through his Son Jesus
You can! Because of God's deep
love for you, he has already made all the necessary
arrangements. Through the death and
of Jesus Christ, you can enjoy a
personal relationship. Jesus made it possible to
bridge the gap which separates us
God. The following four principles will
help you discover how to know Jesus
personally and experience the abundant life he
LOVES you and created you to know Him personally.
3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave
His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but
have eternal life."
17:3 "Now this is eternal life: that they may
know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent."
prevents us from knowing God personally?
Man is SINFUL
and SEPARATED from God, so we cannot know Him
personally or experience His love.
Romans 6:23 "The wages of sin is death."
[Spiritual separation from God]
Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned and fall short
of the glory of God."
Romans 8:6-8 "The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace; the sinful mind is hostile to God.
It does not submit to God's law, nor can it do so. Those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please God." A great gap separates man
from God. Man is continually trying to reach God and establish a personal relationship with Him through human efforts, such as living a
good life, philosophy, or
religion. But he inevitably fails. The third principle explains the only way to bridge that gap.
Jesus Christ is God's ONLY provision for man's
sin. Through him alone
we can know God personally and experience
Romans 5:8 "God demonstrates His own love toward
us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
15:3-6 "Christ died for our sins... he was
buried... he was raised on the third day
according to the scriptures... he
Peter, then to the twelve. After that
he appeared to more than five hundred..."
"Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, the truth and
the life. No one comes to the
Father except through me.' " God has
bridged the gap that separates us from Him by
sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to
die on the cross in our place to pay the penalty
it is not enough just to know these truths.
individually RECEIVE Jesus Christ as Lord and
Savior; then we can know God personally and
John 1:12 "As
many as received him, to them he gave the right
to become children of God,
even to those who believe in his
Ephesians 2:8-9 "For it is by grace that you
have been saved, through faith. This does not depend on anything you have
it is the free gift of God; and because it
is not earned no one can boast about it."
Receiving Christ involves turning to God from
self (a spirit of repentance) and trusting Christ to come into our lives to
of our sins and make us what he wants us to be. Just to agree intellectually
that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that he died on the
cross for our sins is not
enough. Nor is it enough to have an emotional experience.
We receive Jesus Christ by faith, as an act of
Jesus Christ is waiting for an invitation to
come in to your life. In fact, he said,
"Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if
my voice and opens the
I will come in!" (Revelation 3:20)
Perhaps you can sense Christ
knocking at the door of your heart.

words you use, but here's a

Hebrews 13:5 "God has said, 'Never will I leave
you; never will I forsake you.'" To
know God personally is the greatest decision
will ever make. If you've just asked Jesus Christ into your life, tell us about
it. We would love to hear from you.
