From the Milk to the Meat – Part 1



Men, what a powerful time we had as we began our Total Immersion in God’s Word series – From the Milk to the Meat – Growing into Spiritual Maturity! 

Heb 5:13-14  For every one that useth milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 

But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. 

Developing your spiritual maturity is at the forefront of both the EMIC and KCM mission statements. I can take excerpts from both mission statements, combine them and it will read: 

“Discipling them intensely in the Word of God, taking them from the milk to the meat.”

Rick Renner teaches: “Then Paul said he was proud of them because of their “faith.” The Greek word for faith is pistis. The very nature of the Greek word pistis, translated faith, denotes a force that is forward-directed and aggressive – never passive or backward-reaching, but always reaching forward to obtain or achieve a specific target or goal.”


Faith then, by its nature, is always advancing with red-hot expectancy. As you activate your faith, you grow or mature upward in your faith in God’s Word for and in any situation. It takes faith in God’s Word to walk in obedience to His Word. Obedience to His Word will lead into a manifestation of His Words in our life – that’s called an experience. Becoming experienced or skillful in the Word of righteousness leads to a mature Christian life living in the promises, prosperity, and purpose we have a right to. That is what is meant by standing victoriously in life!

Men, unified faith is the incubator for revival! 

Let’s continue to join our faith in prayer for the Key Prayer Points below that will continue throughout the month.

  • Supernatural Psalm 91 protection against all pestilence 
  • Complete healing for our church family members that are overcoming.
  • America to return to the righteousness of God and stand as a light to the world
  • Abortion to be abolished at every state level
  • Record Rain to fall over every dry area affected in our communities and regions in our nation

There are active opportunities to be involved in affecting each one of these areas here at EMIC, our community, schools and voting involvement and through effective faith-filled prayers.

To find out how you can be more involved contact Pastor Al Velez at or call 817-252-2964 

That is why our Men’s Ministry is designed to equip you with biblical weapons of warfare and disciple you and one another in the Word and in meaningful relationships so that we join our faith for victory!

Come and be a part of our Men’s Movement!
