180 Degrees Ministries

Since Jesus said that Truth brings freedom (John 8:32), it follows that lies promote bondage. What we believe to be true, especially about who we are as a person, drives, determines, and motivates all our thoughts and behavior. Therefore, as 180 Degrees Ministries, we do not get hung up on the surface-level issues of mindset or behavior but rather focus on the roots–the belief system. As a person’s beliefs align with truth, the natural result over time is freedom and real, abundant life in the experience.
