INVITATION

Whether we admit it or not, we all carry wounds - from physical, to emotional, to spiritual. Many times we hide these wounds deep inside and hope we can forget about them. But in truth, what we desire most, is for someone to look after us, to console us, and to heal us.
 
There is one more person, who desires the same for each of us. He desires for us to be healed, to feel loved, safe
and wanted. He is also the only one who can make it happen. This person is Our Heavenly Father.  It is He, who created us and who, in His Son - Jesus Christ - and through the Holy Spirit, adopted us as His beloved children.
 
As you read these words now, Our Heavenly Father is extending His arm to you in a blessing. Will you accept His love? Will you let Him embrace you now and heal you? Say, "Yes" to Him and start today off with a deeper sense of being God's beloved son or daughter.

OUR MISSION

Jesus came to earth to reveal His Father to us. He died for us to restore our relationship with God the Father  so we can have eternal life with Him and the Father in Heaven (John 6:40). Jesus is the only way to the Father (John 14:6). In Him the Father adopted us as His own children and He sent us the Spirit of His Son in whom we can cry: "Abba! Father!" (Gal 4:6).
 
The Abba Father Institute wants to share this message with others and to help all of us find freedom, joy and the fulness of life in discovering our dignity of being God's heirs in Jesus Christ and by experiencing Father's gentle and caring love for us.
