Mission Statement


Reaching the poor of our community with the love and power of the Gospel so that they may become God-dependant contributing members of society.

Description


Anna Ogden Hall, an outreach of Union Gospel Mission Ministries, introduces women and children to the love of Christ in a secure environment that promotes dignity and God-centered personal growth. Established in 1971, this warm, welcoming, home-like shelter can house 65-85 women and children in 33 guest rooms. Hundreds of women and children reside at the shelter every year. For over a quarter of a century, the caring people of our community have given time, talent, and resources to help the women and children seeking shelter at Anna Ogden Hall. They volunteer in very practical ways, serving countless hours in areas such as the Children?s Center, Beauty Shop, Kitchen, Clothing Room, or grounds. Groups or families can Adopt-a-Family or Adopt-a-Room, help with food drives, or lend their skills to specific projects. When a woman arrives at Anna Ogden Hall, it?s often one of the most frightening times of her life. Distraught and lonely, she and her children are welcomed with open arms and shown to their quiet and beautifully decorated room, where they can begin to feel loved and secure. Most of the women who enter the doors of Anna Ogden Hall hide wounded hearts, hardened by years of emotional pain. In addition to individual and group counseling, these women hear about the hope that can be found in a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Organizational Statement of Faith


1. We hold the Bible to be God?s Holy Word in its entirety and inspired in every part by the Holy Spirit. We believe the Bible is the only scripture inspired of God and there are no others inspired scriptures. (2 Tim 3:16; 2 Pet 1:21) 2. We hold that man was created in the image of God, holy and innocent; that of his own choice, he sinned, and, as a result brought death upon all humanity (Romans 3:23; 5:12; 6:23). Those who are not saved from sin are eternally separated from God (John 3:18; 2 Thessalonians 1:6-10). 3. We hold that Jesus Christ is God, the second person of the trinity, born of a virgin, that He gave His life on the cross where He, who knew no sin, was made sin for us; that He was buried and arose again from the dead, afterward He ascended into Heaven, from where He will come again (John 5:39; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Corinthians 15:4; Acts 1:9-11). 4. We hold that we are saved by grace through faith, apart from works, that the sinner who repents and personally accepts the finished work of Christ on the cross becomes a child of God, is made a new creature, and is indwelt by the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 2:8,9; John 1:12; 2 Corinthians 5:17; John 14:17). 5. We hold that Jesus Christ is coming again for His church, to judge the wicked and the lost, cast death and hell into the Lake of Fire, and dwell with the saints for ever and ever. (John 14:3; Titus 1:3; 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17; Revelation 20:6,14,15; 22:1-5). 6. We hold that through preaching, teaching and ministering, the Union Gospel Mission Ministries must use all its resources and activities to bring men, women, and children under the life changing power of the Gospel, that they may have victory over sin, come into fellowship with God and live a Spirit filled, fruitful life in Christ. (Matthew 28:18-20; John 3:16; Acts 4:12; Acts 16:31; Romans 5:1,2).
