According to the Wiki Dictionary Purity -
Purity is the condition of being pure, not contaminated, mixed, or blended with anything else-not one small thing!
Sexual Purity = Chastity refers to the sexual behavior of a man or woman acceptable to the moral standards and guidelines of a culture, civilization or religion. In the Western world, the term has become closely associated (and is often used interchangeably) with sexual abstinence, especially before marriage.
Sexual Purity according to the Bible -
It is God’s will that his people should be holy in their relationships. Christians should learn to control their passions and desires in a way that is honorable. This means avoiding sexual immorality through practicing self-control. The Bible makes it clear that holiness must be exhibited in the sexual realm. ‘It is God’s will that you should be holy; that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control his own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the heathen, who do not know God; and that in this matter no one should wrong his brother or take advantage of him. The Lord will punish men for all such sins, as we have already told you and warned you. For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, he who rejects this instruction does not reject man but God, who gives you his Holy Spirit’ (1 Thessalonians 4:3-8).
From Genesis to Revelations God talks about purity and sexual purity. He designed it for marriage, and us as christian should want to please him, by staying sexual pure till marriage ( and that includes everything!!)
TEACHING THE TEENS OF TODAY, GOD'S VIEWS ON PURITY!!! See it is more than waiting till your married, it's a way of life, living pure of heart, and thought life, your motives in everything you do. This journey you are experiencing now, till the day you are married can continue, your can have a pure walk with Christ into your marriage, No I am not saying not to have sex once your marriage, but to live out that pure life. Which is a pureness of heart and thoughts, actions, always checking your motives, When you accept this call on your life, it does not end at the altar, it's a life change...
We believe that God has called us to live a holy, and pure life, and to save sex, and all the things that came with sexual activity, for marriage.
1 Thess. 4:3-8" 3 It is God's will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; 4 that each of you should learn to control his own body in a way that is holy and honorable,5 not in passionate lust like the heathen, who do not know God; 6 and that in this matter no one should wrong his brother or take advantage of him. The Lord will punish men for all such sins, as we have already told you and warned you. 7 For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. 8 Therefore, he who rejects this instruction does not reject man but God, who gives you his Holy Spirit."
We believe if you don't know what you believe in, or why you believe, or why you committing to Purity, It's hard to stay strong when temptations come. John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.. John1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. See Jesus was the word, that became flesh to paid the price for our sins, it is finished, and He rose again in three days. Jesus is our rock, He is our strength, when we have a relationship with Him ( not just on Sundays ) but a daily relationship with Christ, that means getting into his word, taking time talking to Him, Be active in worship, get active in church. God is a jealous God, He wants all your time.. When you have that kinda of relationship with God, his word comes to life in you, and you can be strong and steady in your commitment to the Lord and His call for you to Purity.
Our Mission for this ministry, is to teach and train preteens, and teens the word of God concerning Purity, to give them tools, to use along their walk. We believe this should be taught in every youth group. If you would like, we are willing to work with you, and come and hold an Purity Ball event for your youth.
Purity Ball is part of a non profit ministries, It is a very costly to run. You would have to do fundraisers to raise money to pay for Decoration, D.J. Snacks, and Dinner, Prizes, the Crowns run around $25 and up per teen, Purity Rings can run from $20 to $200 and up per teen, Journals paper & pens, bibles and all the behind the scene items. All this is to your own liking, All I ask is that if I need to travel, you would cover my travel expenses and room & board while I'm there for the weekend. I'm praying God uses this to open doors... Contact me if your interested... We have changed our lay out for 2013, still having our lock in, with lessons, and our talks, but were keeping it simple.. Door cost is $10.00 we took out the rings, crowns and misc...
My Dream Vision for Purity4Jesus!!
Is that God can allow me to spread this ministry to others, for His Glory, to teach teen what God says about purity, and encourage them to live a life different, than the world, just cause were in this world we should not act like them, cause as a christian, Gods word says were not to be of this world, and we should be living a life that is pleasing to God, according to His WORD!!!!
HELLO, my name is Debi, I would like to introduce to you, our Purity4Jesus Ministry. We are affiliated with Gateway Ministries 686 S. Maple St. Orleans, IN.
I would like to tell you about our ministry, sometime in 2007, I've always believed in Purity, and stood for Purity, so God began to deal with me, about starting this ministry, at that time there was reports of Purity Balls where little girls and their daddy's were dressed up had a nice dinner, a small speech, commitment ceremony, and a father/daughter dance. It was all very sweet. My thoughts was to do something on that line for our church, but allow the boys to attend, they need to know to stay pure also. That's when God asked where His word was, in all of this? So with His guidance. I was shown scripture after scripture on PURITY.
Out of that devolved this ministry, see God showed me, if we just pat them on the back and say stay pure, and send them out in the world, one day they will come face to face with temptations, and they have nothing to fight it with, but if we teach the word and teach it as tools they can fight off temptations with the word of God.
See we this year we are doing a Purity4Jesus Conference, where we have about 6 speakers that teaches the word of God, and a gentleman from to sheriff dept to teach on drugs & alcohol. We do have lots of breaks, games, pizza party, we also have a commitment ceremony, where they give their commitment,Still an all night lock inn.
So at this time I would like to invite your teens to our next Purity4Jesus Lock In. coming soon in Dec. 6th, 2014, for ages 12 and up, the cost is free! We have mostly all new speakers, all about Purity, Baggage, Salvation, Armour of God, Sexual Purity Talks (where we separate gals for the guys.) Praying & Writing your future spouse to be, God's Design for Marriage, The importance of our time alone with God, and we are having the sheriff department come back with his talk about choices!
You can also find us on face book @ purity4jesus, or email@example.com

Jesus is the word of God made to flesh, died for all our sins, cover us with His grace, rose the third day.
There are several requirements for mankind to be able to enter into the kingdom of God for all eternity. Here is a checklist of a few of the requirements; faith, confession, forgiveness, death, justification, obe
As ...we continue to grow in grace, we will learn the deep things of God.
We would love for you to continue with us on FB over the next few days as we go through our checklist together and allow the Holy Ghost to reveal how all of these things have been FREELY given to us of God!
1. Faith- Heb.11;6 tells us without faith it is impossible to please Him. God's Word tells us in Romans 12:3 that God has dealt to every man the measure of faith!
2.Confession-Romans 10;9 says if we confess with our mouth the Lord Jesus,and believe in our heart that God has raised Him from the dead, we will be saved.
3. Forgiveness- Colossians 2;13 says He has forgiven you ALL trespasses! Colossians 1;14 Says that the blood of Jesus forgives our sins!
4.Death- Romans6;6 says we are crucified with Him.Colossians3;3 For you are dead,and your life is hid with Christ in God!...Let us meditate on what we haved learned today. Jesus has you covered!! I pray the Holy Ghost will bring revelation to all who read God's word that the work is done!
5.Justification-Romans 4;25 states that Jesus was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.Also see 1 Cor 6;11.
6.Obedience-Romans 5;19 says by the obedience of one(Jesus) shall many be made righteous.
7.Sanctification-The word says that through the new covenant in Hebrews 10;10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. Also see Heb.10;14,1Cor 1;30.
8. Holiness- Colossians 1;22 says In the body of His(Jesus')flesh through death ,to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in HIS sight! Father, help us to believe Your Word and not fall into strange doctrines today.Let our conscience and hearts be free of guilt and condemnation so that we can receive everything You have for us. Thank You for sending Your Son to do for us what we couldn't do for ourselves.In His name I pray....Amen!
9. Perfection- Matthew 5;48 says be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect. Hebrews 10;14 For by one offering he has perfected forever them that are sanctified! WE ARE PERFECT!
10. Righteousness- Matthew 5;20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness exceed that of the scribes and pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. Romans 5;19 So as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of ONE shall many be made righteous.
WE ARE RIGHTEOUS! Last but not least is the big one! SIN FREE !! Romans 6;7 He that is dead is free from sin! 1 John 3;9 Whosoever is born of God doth NOT commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him; and he CANNOT SIN, because he is born of God!
When we confess Jesus as Lord and ask Him to save us,we become born again(John 3;3) and every jot and tittle of the law(Matt 5;18) is fulfilled in us (Rom 8;4)! We are no longer condemned to eternal torment but have passed from death unto life!JESUS and JESUS alone has fulfilled every requirement that is needed for fallen man to enter in to His kingdom. So let us not get caught up in the works of our salvation, but rather let us praise God for His AMAZING GRACE that makes it possible for us to claim every promise that He has ever made!WE are saved by GRACE, we stay saved by GRACE and we WILL enter in by GRACE!AMEN!
