Our Faith

Discover Your Greatest Self is a non-denominational, solutions focused organization with one appointed Ordained Minister. We support nutritional health for chronic diseases, lifestyle recovery, and food insecurity by using evidenced-based Paleolithic nutrition and faith-based spiritual wellbeing. Our core values are based on biblical scriptures and creed based on seven (7) measures of faith.

“We believe in a higher power beyond our understanding, which is God, creator of all things in the universe, visible and invisible.”

SEVEN (7) MEASURES OF FAITH 

1. We can achieve a higher understanding through altered states of consciousness.

    Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. (Romans 12:2)

2. When the light shines upon us and we hear God’s immaculate voice, we come to understand that a power greater than us exists.

   Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. (Isaiah 60:1)

3. Only then, we understand God’s divinity, and such force is beyond our physical world.

    My kingdom is not of this world. (John 18:36)

 

4. We recognize that humans occupy three domains which make us whole: body (physical) soul (psyche) spirit (biofield), and come to comprehend our true potential.

   And the very God of Peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray to God your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved. (1 Thessalonians 5:23)

5. We are shown pain and come to realize one who suffers for long durations, does so to become something greater and to serve a higher purpose.

   After you have suffered a little while, Christ will restore you and make you strong. (1 Peter 5:10)

 

6. We acknowledge we are powerless over others, but NOT powerless over ourselves.

   Make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control. (2 Peter 1:5-6)

7. With our new insight, we use God’s grace and humanistic love to walk our path.

   You make known to me the path of life. (Psalms 16:11)

Core Values

CORE VALUE 1. Keep Thy Body Healthy

Nutrition is mandatory for life longevity, and we believe it is necessary to keep your body healthy for as long as you can to complete your life’s purpose.

“Your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit.” (1 Corinthians 6:19)

“If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.” (1 Corinthians 3:17)

CORE VALUE 2. Use Plants As Medicine

The closer we are to the earth and understanding what mother nature has to offer, the closer we can be to all that the universe provides. Scripture mentions the plants of the earth have significant healing capabilities.

 

“… the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.” (Revelation 22:2) 

CORE VALUE 3. Eat Paleolithic Style

Paleolithic eating is a dietary plan based on foods similar to what might have been eaten during the Paleolithic era, which dates back between approximately 2.5 million and 10,000 years ago. It is the most ancient style of eating. During this era, indigenous cultures consumed what was provided by earths natural environment. Paleolithic practice promotes dependence on mother nature for dietary needs, and supports nutritional methods for chronic disease.

“Behold I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed, to you it shall be for meat.” (Genesis 1:29)

“Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you.” (Genesis 9:3)
