Alpha Warriors will defend our Faith. We believe that faith is the belief, trust and loyalty to God, the Father, Jesus Christ the son, and the Holy Spirit. As spiritual warriors we must choose whom we will serve, and as Alpha Warriors and our households, we will serve the Lord. (Joshua 24:15). “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see” Hebrews 11:1.
“None is able to serve two lords, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will hold to the one, and despise the other; ye are not able to serve God and Mammon” Matthew 6:24 (YLT).
We realize that every family, including our own, is dysfunctional in one way or another, but we are to defend and battle for our family unity, safety, security, and provision. We are to provide for our family. (1 Timothy 5:8)
The two most pressing issues to the modern family are the decline of marital commitment and the rise of fatherlessness. The impact of fatherlessness can be seen in our homes, schools, hospitals, and prisons and is associated with almost every societal ill.
We have a fatherlessness epidemic that includes not only fathers that do not live in the home with their children, but abusive or absent fathers as well. According to the National Center for Fathering, children from fatherless homes are more likely to be poor, become involved in drug and alcohol abuse, drop out of school, and suffer from health and emotional problems.

We recognize and support-single headed households and understand that divorce and single parenting are an area where we can support and be a resource. We are committed to supporting and equipping parents in developing a nurturing and healthy home.
Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. “Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court” Psalm 127:3-5. We are committed to building up and training the next generation of men to be Alpha Warriors.
A man that leads his family is paramount, and passivity (not being engaged and not battling for your family) is a tool of our enemy to silence our calling and divert God’s purpose for our lives.
Alpha Warriors will defend our fitness. We are responsible for our Mental, Spiritual and physical fitness. It is the one area of our lives that no one can do for us. As Alpha Warriors we are to be battle ready. This means to be mentally sharp to have the wisdom and knowledge that God instructs us with (Proverbs 15:33); the be Spiritually fit and prepared, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places” Ephesians 6:12 ESV.
To be physically ready, “Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body” 1 Corinthians 6:19. “If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple” 1 Corinthians 3:17.
We cannot withstand the rigors of life if we are out of shape and not in control of our bodies. What is the ultimate cost of not having the physical energy, stamina and strength to fulfill God’s purpose for us? In addition, it is impossible to physically defend anything lying in a hospital bed.
Hebrews 10:24-25 (KJV)
Alpha Warriors will defend our Future. We have a great inheritance and future and it is something worth defending. Much of how we will spend eternity (our infinite future) depends on what we do here on earth. As Alpha Warriors we will train and equip the next generation of men to live lives of character and be godly husbands, fathers, and friends. This is truly how we will protect, defend and develop our future.
“He has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you” 1 Peter 1:3-4. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” Jeremiah 29:11.
Alpha Warriors will defend our fortune. Our fortune includes everything that we are fortunate for, our finances, our friends, our work and career, our honor and reputation, our peace, and our joy.
Our fortune is much more than money, it is everything we hold dear and of value. “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. This is my command: Love each other” John 15:12-17. “I have come that they may have life and have it to the full” John 10:10.
Alpha Warriors will defend freedom. True freedom encompasses our entire being and results in pure joy, not just happiness, but joy. Freedom from drugs, alcohol, depression, guilt, passivity and other items that our enemy uses to keep us bound and controlled is paramount. “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom” 1 Corinthians 10:29. Freedom is sought by all mankind. As Alpha Warriors we pursue freedom from physical, mental and spiritual bondage.
“For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another” Galatians 5:13. God gives us the freedom to choose our own path, we should choose wisely.
