"And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose."



The Film

Dinosaur Heart is a short documentary following Treffen Rexius and his family whose life was turned upside down after receiving devastating news at the doctor’s office. Being a completely happy and seemingly healthy 10-month-old baby, there was no reason to suspect anything was wrong, until Dr. Carter uttered those words that will forever live in their hearts, “your child is in congestive heart failure.”

Even in the overshadow of a parents’ worst nightmare, losing a child, we see God’s faithfulness and provision every step of the way. It’s a harrowing and inspiring story of faith and perseverance though some of life’s toughest moments, while seeing the peace and comfort of God overflow in the middle of them.

The Ministry

Dinosaur Heart Ministries, an extension of the documentary, aims at supporting believers through some of life’s toughest moments. We partner with local churches to bring pastoral care and resources to struggling people.

Bring Glory to God

Accompany those in pain

Connect with pastoral care and counselors

Dinosaur Heart Ministries is committed to the Word of God and holds to the 1689 Baptist Confession. We desire to be a safe haven for struggling believers and showing the goodness and mercy of God to the world. In summary, our beliefs are summed up in the 5 solas of the reformation:

1. Sola Scriptura (Scripture alone)

The Bible alone is our highest authority. It is both inspired by the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:20-21) and God-breathed (2 Timothy 3:16-17). The scriptures are the final authority for life.

2. Sola Fide (faith alone)

We are saved through faith alone in Jesus Christ by his blood that was shed for many (Matthew 26:28). Salvation is a free gift from God that is not earned by good works or effort (Ephesians 2:8-9).

3. Sola Gratia (grace alone)

Salvation by faith in Christ is necessary because of the fallen condition of mankind (Romans 3:23). We are born with a sin nature imputed from our first father Adam (Romans 5:12), but forgiven as a sovereign act of the grace of God.

4. Solus Christus (Christ alone)

Jesus Christ is our profit, priest and king. Co-eternal with the Father and Holy Spirit (John 1:1-5). Christ alone is the Worthy one (Revelation 5:9) and has supremacy over all the world (Colossians 1:15-20).

5. Soli Deo Gloria (to the glory of God alone)

Everything we do and say is for the glory of God alone. His own glorification is our first and foremost goal (1 Corinthians 10:31).
