The Christian Warriors Retreat Community provides a Christian environment that promotes spiritual and emotional healing. We believe in creating a community of excellence and honor. CWR Community is made of two groups of people; Veterans and those who love Veterans. Our ministry leadership is formed of those who served or related to those who served.
We know firsthand the sacrifice made by our Veteran community. The Veteran community has hard hitting statistics. We lose 22 Veterans a day to suicide and have a high divorce rate for combat marriages. Through retreat experiences, discipleship, and 4Given Ranch, we will initiate and sustain three levels of success: Veterans will understand their value in Christ; heal and improve vital relationships; and, most importantly, find God’s mission for which they were created.
We believe that the United States of America was founded upon a covenant between our Father God and our founding fathers. When we swore our oath of enlist it was to serve both God and country. Our country needs its warriors to rise and fight a new battle. We believe in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as a Christian ministry. We also believe that the Bible is the living word of God, our training manual, and active in our lives.
We believe flags carry a message
At our retreats we fly THE FLAGS BELOW THAT REPRESENT OF OUR MISSIOn.
The American flag is the National flag of the United States of America which our Veterans served. We also fly 32 American flags at each of our Christian Warriors Retreat to honor each Veteran on our retreat. The colors of the flag are symbolic: Red symbolizes Hardiness and Valor, White symbolizes Purity and Innocence and Blue represents Vigilance, Perseverance and Justice. We pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
The Christian flag was designed to represent all of Christianity. The white on the flag represents purity and peace. The blue stands for faithfulness, truth, and sincerity. Red, of course, is the color of sacrifice, in this case calling to mind the blood shed by Christ on Calvary, represented by the cross. We pledge allegiance to the Christian flag, and to the Savior for whose kingdom it stands; one Savior, crucified, risen, and coming again with life and liberty to all who believe.
The appeal to Heaven flag was designed as a symbol of solidarity, conviction, and encouragement to fight for liberty. The phrase, "Appeal to Heaven" means that when all resources and justices on earth are exhausted that only "An appeal to Heaven" remains. "Always maintaining green leaves or needles, depending on the tree, evergreen trees have symbolized eternity, as far back as Abraham. When General George Washington commissioned the Appeal to Heaven flag to fly over our naval ships in the Revolutionary War- don't look for that in our modern American History books- little did he know that 240 years later, God would ordain that it fly again."- Written by Dutch Sheets, Appeal to Heaven. As a Christian Military ministry we believe it is important to fly the Appeal to Heaven flag, as a symbol of our nation's covenant with God.
