Walking in Freedom

Hey there,

We started FUEL Ministries in 2005 at a church in Southern California where we witnessed God change hundreds of men’s lives through this same FUEL study. FUEL stands for Focused Upon Eternal Living. FUEL Ministries exists to reach men that are caught in the bondage of habitual sin and long to be set free. We are here to encourage, equip and empower men to be all that God has called us to be and Focus Upon Eternal Living.

We are now serving thousands of men through our online FUEL Study. If you or someone you know is trapped in bad habits, persistent bad choices, and deep rooted issues, freedom is not only possible but promised.

What I discovered was the very Bible that I had read and believed had the power to change lives began to become relevant, and inspired in ways that allowed me to hear God’s voice again. The Bible became my blueprint and when I read it and applied the truths and principles to my life it started having effective results. The further along I came I was having more strength and renewed energy with those former temptations and distractions. And my appetite for living for God began to dominate my life.

I would challenge you to not only read the Bible scriptures in the 40 days study with us, but apply them to your life. I can promise you, well actually, God has already promised to change your whole life. The life you have been waiting for. The life that God designed for you to live. One of purpose, joy and excitement.

Why the FUEL Study Program?

  1. RENEWED HOPE: If you’ve been feeling down and hopeless, the 40 Day Study can help you see the light again. With God working in your life and on your problems you can begin to make steps towards a radical transformation.
  2. BELONGING & COMMUNITY: Even if you are not part of the Mentored FUEL Studies, you are still a part of thousands of others who’ve made it through the same program as you. With encouraging words, mentors, and prescriptions, you can learn to be held accountable for your actions.
  3. DAILY ENCOURAGEMENT: Often we fall off track because it’s hard to motivate ourselves to stray away from the only life of sin we know. The FUEL Study gives you the encouragement you need to feel motivated, secure in your thoughts, and equipped for the obstacles you face.
  4. STABILITY: By taking on the FUEL Study, you have the chance to create a more stable life that will have a large impact on how you deal with stress and see obstacles. The program will help bring balance and stability back into your life with in 40 days.
  5. SUPPORT & NEARBY HELP: If you haven’t been able to seek help elsewhere, your FUEL Study will help you in ways you never expected. From mentors to scripture, you will find words of encouragement that can help you overcome your struggles.
  6. EXPERIENCE TRUE RECOVERY: Recovery may seem like an impossible hurdle to leap over right now, but starting your FUEL studies will put you on track to finally recover from your life of habitual sin.
  7. EXPERIENCE TRUE FREEDOM: You probably feel tied down by your daily life of sin, like you can’t get away from it. By starting The FUEL Study, you can finally feel free to be the best version of yourself, be honest and vulnerable with taking a risk.

Men Who’ve Been Through the FUEL Study

Commonly Asked Questions

“Why did God give me this issue?”

The Lord is not the one who give us the struggles of the flesh, rather it’s a product of a broken world and the cause of sin. It was never meant to be this way, God wanted us to live with Him but we also had a choice whether we wanted to be apart of His plan. Obviously it didn’t work out…

The reality is you have a choice: to either try living on the straight and narrow by yourself or end up handing the struggle over to God. Who do you think is more capable of helping free you from bondage, you or the all mighty God?

No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
1 Corinthians 10:13

I’ve tried other programs, how will I ever overcome these struggles?

Yes! You can, and you will. If you focus on overcoming your struggles by your own effort then you will fail, sorry only when you rely on the Lord through faith (believing and knowing) with a renewed mind and changed heart only then you can see transformation from the inside out…

We are confident you will find the strength to endure the daily temptations following our 40 Day Study. The truth is friend, your soul and body are at war with themselves. You must continually feed your soul with the right things, much like you have to eat good foods to stay healthy. In order to see an entire transformation, you must be willing to feed your soul with the right things and be willing to deprive it of the wrong things.

More so, these changes have eternal implications and more important than the temporal momentary satisfactions? We hope you realize how important this pursuit is”¦

Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
James 1:22 (NIV)

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.
Galatians 6:7-8 (NIV)

What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?
Mark 8:36

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:58

What’s the difference between your program and others?

Our entire program is Biblically Based focused on scripture. We’re following God’s blueprint, not man’s 12 Step Program. You might ask why we don’t believe in a common 12 step program… well it’s simple: Why would we want to conform to human understanding when the truth is we need divine intervention, something not of this world?

You can’t achieve freedom on human will alone, only through divine intervention. Our 40 Day Study seeks to restore the relationship with Christ where He can begin to change your heart and bring lightness to darkness (2 Corinthians 4:6).

…to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.’
Acts 26:18 (NIV)

How will I know the program is working?

It’s simple friend, your thoughts and actions will change. If you seek the Lord with all your heart and all your soul you will see the fruits that are from Him: love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23).

But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it””not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it””they will be blessed in what they do.
James 1:25 (NIV)
