31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." 33 They answered him, "We are Abraham's descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?" 34 Jesus replied, "Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. 35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
Our Mission is to help people experience freedom in Christ through the powerful platform of professional basketball. Internally, we seek to empower and encourage NBA and other professional players in their faith. Externally, we target those disenfranchised by society: the widows, orphans, and children; the sick, the imprisoned and the impoverished. Simply, it's Jesus through basketball, and He alone gets the glory.
Professional basketball players are very influential people yet are virtually an unreached people group. Football and Baseball are filled with outspoken Christians, but Basketball is devoid of this reality. In response to this potentially influential void, we encourage our players to follow Jesus – by practicing his teaching, exhibiting his love and embracing his leading. Further, we facilitate opportunities for the players to lift up the name of Jesus through camps, retreats, speaking engagements, service projects and public appearances. In so doing, we influence the influencers to make Christ known.
