About One Step Ministries
One Step Ministries is committed to the teachings of Jesus Christ and the desire to make Him known by proclaiming God's Word in both written publications as well as speaking events. Cofounded by Allison Wilks and Kelli Reeves, One Step Ministries seeks to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with those who have not yet heard His saving truth, as well as equip believers with the tools to better know God through His Holy Scripture.
As a writer, teacher, and women's event speaker Allison shares lessons, stories, and life moments with women of all ages and walks of life in hopes that her strides and stumbles will inspire others to walk with Jesus one step at a time. Allison is a graduate of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky with a Master of Arts degree in Theological Studies. Allison's desire is to love God deeply and proclaim Him boldly so that others may know Him and bring Him glory.
Originally from Hendersonville, Tennessee, Kelli came to Alabama to pursue her bachelor’s degree at Samford University in Birmingham. There she met her husband, Carter, and happily followed him to Prattville, AL where he became the Associate Worship Pastor at First Baptist Church Prattville. Carter and Kelli are the proud parents of two singing, dancing, macaroni-eating princesses. Kelli loves all things organization and uses her unique array of behind-the-scenes skills to further the ministry of the gospel. As cofounder of One Step Ministries, Kelli serves as editor, creative director, web designer, calendar manager, and Post-It Pro! Kelli’s love of God’s Word and devotion to its right interpretation and teaching fuels her heart for ministry, but her love of God fuels her passion for people.
Our mission, led by the Holy Spirit, is to glorify God by intentionally sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ and the principles found in God's Word with both believers and unbelievers in our church, community, state, nation, and the world.
Statement of Faith
We believe in the one, true God, existing in three persons; the Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God alone is Creator and Sustainer of all things. He created man in His own image and desires to be glorified by His creation. As a result of the Fall in the Garden of Eden sin came into the world and all of mankind bear the sin nature of Adam. God is holy and cannot be in relationship with sinful people. The penalty of sin is death, therefore God sent His son Jesus to pay the price of sin and to make a way of salvation. Jesus was born to the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, was crucified on the cross, and was raised to life three days later according to the Scriptures. Salvation is entirely the work of God, nevertheless, we believe that the only true response of a follower of Christ is whole and sincere devotion to God demonstrated in worship and service. Every redeemed believer has the privileged responsibility to know God and to make Him know in word and deed by proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe the Bible is God's inerrant Word penned in the time and voice of men chosen and led by the Spirit of God. We believe that all persons live out theology (beliefs about God) every day, and that all men, women, boys and girls who have tasted the grace of Jesus must be diligent students of the Scripture in order to develop full, accurate, pure theology and apply that knowledge to every area of life.
