" A MINISTRY OF FAITH THAT BELIEVES IN MAKING DISCIPLES THAT ARE COMMITTED TO CHRIST AND ONE ANOTHER. "
July 9 - Belonging to Jesus
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? (1 Corinthians 6:19 NASB)
Why are you not your own? Because somebody else has bought you. When you have been bought by somebody else, then you no longer belong to yourself.
Who bought you? Jesus. With what method of payment? His blood. So, if you have been bought by Jesus, remember, you do not belong to yourself. If you belong to yourself, then you are not bought with the blood of Jesus. Again, you cannot belong to yourself and to the Lord. The Lord wants you for Himself. He has paid the price of His precious blood. If you want to hold on to your own life, then, remember, you have not been bought with a price. You cannot have it both ways. If you belong to God, you do not belong to yourself. If you belong to yourself, you do not belong to God.
For you have been bought with a price [the precious blood of Jesus]: therefore [because of the price that has been paid for you] glorify [honor] God in your body. (verse 20)
When Jesus died on the cross, He paid a total price for a total redemption. He did not redeem just a part of you. He redeemed the whole of you—spirit, soul, and body. Jesus died to redeem you. If you have accepted redemption through His blood, then you are not your own; you now belong to Him. Both your spirit and your body are God’s, because Jesus paid the price of His blood to possess you.
Thank You, Lord, that You have purchased me. I proclaim that Jesus paid the total price for my redemption. I have been bought at a price; I belong to God. Amen.

The History of CGMF.
CGMF began as ministry almost seven years ago. With three basic goals in mind. One, to help train disciples locally, and to encourage the establishment of bible neighborhood fellowships within the church in an interdenominational fashion. Two, provide for much needed assistance for those without medical insurance. Finally, to establish a network of attorneys to give legal guidance to those without the ability to afford one when necessary.
These basic three goals saw the establishment of CGMF Inc.. Since then CGMF has grown and expanded throughout the state of Nebraska. To facilitate this growth CGMF's main office has now moved to Omaha, Nebraska in its efforts to better handle the fluid changes within the ministry itself.
CGMF has 22 neighborhood fellowship groups located throughout the state of Nebraska. Eight of which are unique and independent, whom are associated with CGMF, but are not under its authority or oversight. All the CGMF affiliated groups and associated partners serve in training, teaching and establishing disciples for Christ. With a specially designed teaching program of rotational classes, including special events. All of which have been developed to equip each and every believer in their walk of faith.
Reverend Patrick Vossen is our founder and president of CGMF Inc.. Rev. Vossen has ministered in various locales and holds license and ordination with FGRMC, as well other ministerial associations. He also serves as a Bishop on the Council of Elders of FGRMC, and is the President of Focus Bible College.
