POGM - “ACT-One” - Theater Ministry

POGM - “ACT-One” - Theater Ministry


is a ministry with a mission and a people with a purpose. Our mission is to provide the highest level of artistic instruction and performance in an atmosphere of Christian integrity and excellence and to bring wholesome, family entertainment to our community and surrounding areas. Our purpose is to train people in dance, drama and related areas as a means of discovering and releasing the gifts and talents God has given them and in a way that glorifies Him.

This process builds relationships among those that participate and encourages their relationship with the Lord. POGM “ACT One” is founded on the Lord Jesus and we express our focus on Him through a program that builds compassion, cooperation, commitment and character in our participants. We have been blessed to bring many plays to our community over the year’s and we thank God for our families and staff who love the Lord and who have a heart for theater and missions.

Our wonderful staff is comprised of many un-paid volunteers and underpaid instructors who simply love God, love people and love theater. We want to produce the best quality plays within our means, yet still have fun and fellowship. Strong dramatic presentations are a revealing test to all who call themselves Christians, especially when the presentations occur in a church theater. They test whether we, as Christians, really believe what we say we believe. The church is only ready for drama, when it can open itself to the implications of dramatic revelation; when the congregation can accept the world of the imagination and can risk being excited, risk being frightened, risk being changed. Such risk is near the very heart of the Christian message.

POGM “ACT One” Member Guidelines

Every member is a volunteer, participating because they truly want to be here.

Every member will be regular in attendance and dependable.

Every member is a team player, not in it for personal fame.

Every member will help obtain and contribute available resources.

Theatre must be in your blood.

Every city desperately needs a theater that can afford to see devotion to truth as its controlling force.

Four Stages of Spiritual Development

Four Stages of Spiritual Development:

Born-again stage:

the new birth, new life - eternal life from above.
John 1 :l2 - Child of God, God is now the Father of our spirits.
Phil.2:12-13 - Salvation is not just a destination change, going to heaven instead of going to hell, but a change in lifestyle. We were in union with Satan, but now we are children of God, joint-heirs with Jesus, and we are to act accordingly.
l John 2:3-6 ; John 14:21 - Daily obedience to His word is the evidence of a new birth, a process of being sanctified.
To obey is to really hear and to really listen, to see and to understand what I listened to, and to act upon what I heard on the basis of a changed attitude and resultant deeds which gives glory to God.

Spiritual stage:

is knowing the fullness of the Holy Spirit, and being fully empowered to live the Christian life.
Lu.11:13 - Simply ask and receive.
Lu.24:48-49 - Receive power from on high.
Acts 1:8 - When the Holy Spirit comes upon you, then you will receive power to be His witnesses, i.e. a salt and light lifestyle.
1 Cor.6:17 - One spirit with Him, you are a co-worker.

Pathway of the cross stage:

is a daily exercise of getting down into the death of Christ so that Christ can live out His life through us.
Rom.6:3-6 - Old nature buried, no longer slaves of sin. As we put-off daily sins, we arise immediately in the newness of life in Christ and respond biblically to all of life's encounters, being a blessing to all we meet.
Eph.4:22-24 - We must do the doing, putting-off corruptions, renewing ourselves in the spirit of our minds, and putting-on truth in all areas of living. Daily, we have our Calvary, our resurrection, and our ascension.
Lu.9:23-24 - No longer defend or protect self, but practice death to private aims, selfish passions and prejudices, to worldly reputation and honor.
Phil.2:3-5 - As with Jesus, now I am to seek the interests and betterment of others. I am no longer central but to use self to be a blessing to others.

Ascension/over-comer/spiritual warfare stage:

where the believer realizes and knows he is in union with Christ.
Eph.1:17-23 - We are seated with Him, "Far above all authority..."
Lu.10:19 - Given all authority over the power of the enemy.
Rom.8:29 ; l John 3:8 - God created us to be conformed to the image of His Son, and as such, to do as He did, to destroy the works of the devil.
Col.2:13-15 - Our problem is not with satan, he has been defeated. The issue is our relationship with God, knowing who and what we are in Christ Jesus, and, therefore, keeping the enemy from having any footholds in my life by being free in the following areas: (See James 4:6-8 )


- Gal.3:13-14 -Realize and know that the Blood of Jesus
has freed me from all generation curses (Exe.18:20).
Circumstances of life- Matt.16:24-25 ; Col.1:10-11 .No longer react
to or controlled by the externals of life, by personal attacks, by
pressures of the world, by trials and tribulations, but respond by
and according to the promptings and power of the Holy Spirit
( James 1:2-4 ).


- l John 2:15 ; 2 Pet.1:4 -Partaker of the divine life
and nature, and have escaped from the world's system of
lusts. The devil has nothing on me, and I am now in the position
to overcome him in all areas of life, and setting others free,
in the name of Jesus Christ.

The characteristics of an over-comer:

Eph.3:9-10 -Proclaims God's wisdom to the enemy for this is a battle of wisdom.
Phil.1:11 -Do all to the honor and praise of God that His glory may be both manifested and recognized.
Prov.24:10 -Nothing can ever limit or defeat us in Christ, we proceed until victory prevails.
Prov.21:22 -No compromises, we ascend, we assault, and cast down all opposition.
Lu.11-20 -23; l John 4:4 ; Isa.9:6 -We move from strength to strength for there is no end to God's kingdom. We are commissioned to establish His Kingdom of peace and joy on earth.

Therefore, being an over-comer we accomplish God's purposes for our lives by being conformed to the image of His Son, and destroying the works of the devil.
