In late 2008 after the economy had taken a turn for the worse TSI was struggling
to create a profit and for the first time in 24 years of business layoffs were necessary.
With business all over struggling to survive Vicki Moore received an email about
a seminar on "Economic Upturn" from Marketplace Solutions. After attending the seminar
the solution was clear. Transform business to help fulfill the Great Commission;
"Matthew 28:19-20 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the
name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20Teaching them to observe
all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even
unto the end of the world. Amen."
Growing upon TSI original Mission Statement to "... conduct business in an ethical
manner upholding Christian values." We decided to integrate these values it further
into the business.
On May 6th 2009, TSI was officially dedicated to the ministry work of the Lord.
We had also chosen to tithe from any of the business's net profits.
By month end we experienced a significant enough Net Profit to erase all previous
year to date losses.
At TSI we believe we have a greater purpose than to service and sell trucks. Our
purpose is to minister to our employees, customers, vendors and community through
our interactions with them in our vocation of business. Our employees are encouraged
to know, even in their vocation, they can use their talents and abilities for God's
Serving God's Purpose in Our Market
God sent Jesus Christ, His only Son, so that we might have new, everlasting life.
The Bible tells us, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John
3:16). By His death and resurrection, Jesus paid for our salvation. He broke the
power of sin and death, making it possible for us to have everlasting life.
Jesus did something no one else could do because of who He is. Being without sin,
He became the substitute for our sins, and by doing so, He has removed the wall
that blocked our relationship with God. He took our penalty, our sins were put on
Him and He took our guilt.
Your relationship with Him can start today, and you can have life abundantly, now
and forever. Jesus took the punishment that we deserve when He died on the cross
and rose from the dead. Because of Jesus our sins can be forgiven, forgotten, and
we can have the promise of eternal life with God in heaven.
We are told in Romans 10:9 "If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe
in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with
the heart one believes to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made to
To start a new life in Jesus Christ. Pray something like this:
"Father, I know that I sinned. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again.
I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the
dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life,
to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit
to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name
I pray, Amen."
If this was the first time you've ever prayed something like this; Congratulations!
We encourage you now to find a local church where you can be baptized and grow in
