REFRESH is the premiere lifestyle and faith-inspired magazine. With its motivating and encouraging messages along with compelling and engaging stories, REFRESH is the definitive voice for millennials. REFRESH speaks directly to its readers who have drawn away from Christ or desire to develop a deeper relationship with Christ.

Mission Statement

Our goal is to win souls that have fallen away from Christ, inform individuals who have never heard of the Gospel and just as the Lord declared in Jeremiah 31:25 “refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.” We seek to empower people with words of wisdom and enlighten those who are unaware of Jesus Christ through biblical text, testimonies, and entertainment.

Our Beliefs

We believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God and He died on this Earth for our sins and as living beings, we have been preordained to spread the Gospel to men and women all over the world. Therefore we will:

  • Make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Matthew 28:19 
  • We believe that there is only one God, one faith, one baptism. Ephesians 4:5
  • We must be born again to enter into Heaven. John 3:3
  • God is the father, son and the Holy Spirit. 1 John 5:7
  • We are the light of the world. Matthew 5:14
