Statement of faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired and the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

We believe there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)

We believe in the deity of Christ (John 1:1), in His virgin birth (Matthew 1:18, 25), in His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15), in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood (Hebrews 9:15-22), in His bodily resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:1-8), in His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Acts 1:9-11) and in His personal return in power and glory (Hebrews 9:27-28).

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men ( and women), regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. (John 3:16; John 5:24; Titus 3:3-7)

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (John 14:15-26; John 16:5-16; Ephesians 1:13-14)

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (Matthew 25:31-46; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

In 2002 Jim and Debbie Hogan built a log home on the Navajo River in Southwest Colorado, using it to serve ministry leaders and their spouses. They named it Standing Stone Ranch, and each year they selected a number of pastoral couples to visit them for a week. In that process, they created a ministry for couples who desire a healthy marriage relationship and a more intimate walk with God.

This initial vision expanded from what God began at Standing Stone Ranch to a broader endeavor called Standing Stone Ministry. Looking at the key success factors of Standing Stone Ranch, it was evident that they could be duplicated elsewhere. The objective then became to find vacation homes in beautiful locations and pair them with excellent hosts who are also loving and seasoned mentors - thus re-creating the Standing Stone Ranch experience for more pastoral couples.

In 2014, Standing Stone expanded its ministry outreach by building a team of field shepherds who proactively initiate trusted and confidential relationships with ministry leaders and their spouses. This faith-filled action has resulted in Standing Stone walking with thousands of pastors, ministry leaders, and their spouses across the United States and in 30 other countries, guiding them into increasing health.
