why "MANIFEST"?

Manifest (v): To display or show by one's acts or appearance; to demonstrate.

To manifest something is to make it clear and seen by all. As followers of Christ we are called to manifest Jesus in everything we do. 2 Corinthians 4:10, "...so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies." As Christian artists, our creativity reflects the very nature of who God is. Ephesians 2:10 says, "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." God created us to do good works. If the art we create serves others or worships God, we are doing what we were created to do.

We are God's creation. We have been made in the image of the ultimate creator. We are naturally creative beings. MANIFEST Magazine was created to showcase the creatives who use their art to manifest Jesus, serve others, and worship God.
