Organizational Statement of Faith


Agape is a Christ-centered ministry, and as such follows the teachings and example of Jesus Christ in all that we do. These beliefs serve as the foundation upon which this agency is built and shapes its programs and services. We seek to be a strong voice advocating for the physical, psychological, and spiritual needs of children and families, and maintain a special commitment to serving underserved and/or disenfranchised populations and communities. In keeping with these Christian principles and our focus on continuing the ministry of Jesus Christ, we seek to 1) promote the spiritual growth and development of our clients, employees, and associates, 2) support the work of local churches in equipping their members for ministry and in serving and developing their communities, and 3) strengthen and empower families, churches, and communities so that children are provided with healthy homes and supportive family systems.
