Applying biblical principles as you learn how to make your food work for you!
There is one and only one living and true God. The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.
GOD THE SON
Jesus the Christ is God's Son. He is fully God and fully human. He lived a sinless life and was therefore able to be the only sacrifice acceptable to satisfy God's justice. He proved His triumph over sin and death through His bodily resurrection. He is the only way for the salvation of those who choose to respond to His conviction of their sin. He lives and reigns in heaven where He intercedes for those who place their faith and trust in Him. He will one day return to this earth where He will rule and reign until the final judgment of humanity.
GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT
God the Holy Spirit indwells all those who have placed their faith and trust in Christ as Savior. He convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgement. He is fully God.
Salvation is available to all who choose to respond to God's conviction by placing their faith and trust in Christ alone. Salvation is not possible through human works or the practice of a religion but only through the person of Christ.
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God inerrant in the original writings. It is God's revelation to mankind and reveals our need for salvation.

Dr. Wright has been in ministry since the late 1980's. He began serving as a Minister of Music. He served churches in that capacity in Indiana, Texas and Alabama. Jim holds a Bachelor of Music Degree from Indiana University and a Master of Music degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
In 1998, through a set of unusual circumstances, God made it clear to Jim and the church he was serving that God was calling Jim to transition to the role of Senior Pastor. Jim served as Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church of Centre, Alabama for thirteen years. During that time Jim was increasingly discouraged over his weight.
He tried to exercise it off and earned two black belts in Tae Kwon Do, but was still overweight. His martial arts ended with a spinal fusion. It was during his period of recovery in 2011 that Jim began to learn the nutritional principles he teaches in this course. Soon JIm was teaching weight loss classes and creating menus for people from the database of grocery items he had been gathering for his personal use.
In 2012 Jim became a certified weight loss coach for Thrive Weight Loss. He taught classes throughout central Indiana primarily in churches. In June, 2013 Thrive Weight Loss closed; however, Jim wanted to continue to help people by teaching them how to use their food to lose weight. So, in August, 2013 Jim and his wife Laura (who is a certified personal trainer) launched Achieve Weight Loss.
Jim partnered with churches to use Achieve Weight Loss as an outreach and evangelistic tool. Achieve Discipleship uses all the great, proven nutritional information and resources but with a different book and daily videos with the goal of helping Christ-followers grow in their faith.
