About Us

What We Believe

We love Jesus! 

We define what we believe here for the sake of clarity, but our hearts throb with love for our Lord. 

Above all, our hearts rest in Him, not in theology or a statement of faith. 

Those involved with this ministry are born-again Christians who have highest regard for the infallibility and inerrancy of the Word of God – the Bible.  We preach Christ and Him crucified to the glory of God and the increase of Christ in the believer.

We believe in all of the classic orthodox Christian tenets, including:


  • The Bible as the divinely inspired and infallible Word of God
  • The Trinity – one God, three persons.
  • The incarnation of Jesus Christ.
  • The full deity and humanity of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Christ’s literal death, burial, and resurrection on the third day.
  • Forgiveness, justification, redemption, and reconciliation through the Cross.
  • Salvation by grace through faith alone.
  • The Holy Spirit was sent to dwell within the hearts of believers.



We do not represent a movement, a theology, or a denomination.  We desire to emphasize a reality that is sometimes underemphasized in the church: that believers are in Christ and that Jesus Christ is the life of the believer. “I have been crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I, but Christ lives in me” (Gal 2:20).  Because of the Cross, we can live by the life and nature of Christ.


General Overview of the Beliefs of InHim Ministries:


The gospel as most of the church knows it takes care of man’s fallen, sinful state and brings us into right relationship with God.  There, our gospel stops.  It stops short of what was God’s desire for saving man in the first place, which was to fill us with the life of His Son.


The Cross was not only the place of the shedding of blood for the remission of our sins; it was also where our old man Adam was put to death that we might walk in newness of life (Rom. 6:3-4).


The gospel has been exchanged for a self-help or fixing the problems in the world.  But Jesus died to bring a new creation altogether (II Cor. 5:17)!  He does not want to fix us; He wants to fill us with His crucified life and live vibrantly in us.  What is left of us is to allow the Holy Spirit to reveal Christ in us (Gal. 1:16). 


Jesus wants to live in us.  He wants to pour out and give His life for others and for the glory of His Father.  Individual hearts choose to know Him in this way, but it is the Church – the corporate Body of Christ – that more fully gives expression to the life of Christ within.


How deeply it pleases our Father’s heart to see His Son on the throne of the hearts of His people, allowing Him to be all and in all!  The purpose of the church is to this end: an increase of Christ, both now and forever (I Pet. 4:11).


This is the wonderful new covenant relationship that we were brought into when Jesus took us to Himself in His Cross.  Now our lives are meant for only one thing: to know Jesus and to make Him known. 

What the Bible Says about What We Believe

Paul says:

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”

Galatians 2:20


There is nothing about us that we can offer God that will please or glorify Him. 

“And all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment”

Isaiah 64:6


Try as we might, we cannot give God what He wants in our own strength. 

“For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh.”

Romans 7:18


Not only did Jesus die for us; He died as us, putting Adam to death once and for all.

“Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.”

Romans 6:6


This is not a self-improvement plan; this is a brand new creation made of Spirit and life!

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

II Corinthians 5:17


Now we can be filled up with Him instead of ourselves.

 “…that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.”

Ephesians 3:19


Since we have been crucified with Christ, we are now one Spirit with the Lord, and the One is Christ. 

“But the one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him.”

I Corinthians 6:17


Now each believer is able to choose to become a partaker of Christ as the life within. 

“That ye might be partakers of the divine nature…” 

II Peter 1:4


The life of Christ expresses itself as a Lamb.  It lays down that others might live.  Jesus lived this way when He walked the earth, and His nature will do it in us today. 

“So then death worketh in us, but life in you.” 

II Corinthians 4:12


Christ in us is not us behaving in a Christian way.  It is His very Spirit living in us. 

“It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing.”

John 6:63


We are not trying to discipline, suppress, or improve our flesh. 

“Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any value to the indulging of the flesh.” 

Colossians 2:23


Rather, we want to learn Christ so that His image will be apparent in us.   

“My children, with whom I am again in labor until Christ is formed in you.”

Galatians 4:19


Our part is to put off the old man and put on the new man by faith.

“… That ye put off.. the old man… and… put on the new man.” 

Ephesians 4:22, 24


As the believer dwells in Christ, His life will fill that branch, and His nature will manifest in daily life. 

“I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.”

John 15:5


Now we seek to know Christ by revelation so that what is true in Him will be made real in us. 

“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him.” 

Ephesians 1:17


The new covenant is not only what Jesus wrought at the Cross; it is also that of Jesus’ work upon the Cross that is written on the fleshly tables of our heart by the Holy Spirit. 

“Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.” 

II Corinthians 3:3


Dwelling in Christ, putting off the old by faith in the work of the Cross, and allowing the Spirit to reveal Christ leads to a practical, moment-by-moment walk in oneness with Christ.

“If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.”

Galatians 5:25


Christ dwells in each of our souls.  But it is Christ dwelling in His church that is God’s hope of glory!

“To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” 

Colossians 1:27


All of this we believe, but it is not enough just to believe.  We trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and His Word with all of our heart and passion.  It is love that drives us in our great pursuit of knowing Him.  What a journey it is! 

About Us

Mallory Patrick is the founder of InHim Ministries.  She received Jesus into her heart as a child.  In the process of time, her hunger for knowing Jesus grew, and the Lord led her to hear what she now considers to be the true gospel: “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Redemption is only the first part of the story!  It was in the Lord’s heart all along to dwell in His people by His Spirit.  Jesus’ death on the Cross was not only to pay for our sins, but was ordained to be our entry into union with Him.  Even more than that, it was a display of the very eternal nature of God. 


At this point, Mallory found her true call in life: to know Christ in this way and make Him known.  Now, her one main goal is to decrease while learning to let Christ increase. 


Mallory’s desire is to feed those hearts who hunger for the real living Christ.  She sees the need for a constant intake of the living Word in order to see Christ and be changed into that same image.  It is from this desire that InHim Ministries was born, to both preserve the Word and provide an outflow for others.  


Here at InHim Ministries, we are not trying to be big or important.  We just want to glorify the Lord.  If we succeed in doing this in some small way, all honor goes to the Holy Spirit, who delights to use the weak and the foolish.  May no flesh glory in God’s presence, but may we come to know Christ as all our wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption. 

“I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me. And the life that I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”
-- Galatians 2:20
