Mission Statement


Our Vision is to see that all get to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ. Our main focus is the homeless. We take teams into the downtown cores of urban areas polluted with homeless, and from there we Hit The Streets. Serving them in very practical ways, while giving young people the chance to share their faith as well.

Description


We approach those in need, and offer to buy them food, or drink, or offer to find them a place to stay for the night. While we quickly build these relationships, we share the Gospel Message, and the Hope that we have found in Christ. We encourage them to ask questions, or challenge something we have said. We then ask if they have any prayer requests, and we write them down and post them in our BLOG, so that only we can pray for them, but you may also pray for them. Mostly these people are just looking for someone to listen to them, rather than walk over them. We spend as much time with them as they want, or need. We leave them with a Gospel of John, and the name of a local church they can contact for more help with Spiritual needs. In 2007 We spoke with over 300 homeless (who's names we got). We gave out over 500 Gospels of John, and we showed thousands of people in the streets, what the love of God looks like today. In 2008 We touched countless lives with the Gospel of Christ as well.

Organizational Statement of Faith


We believe that Jesus Christ (God in the Flesh) came down to earth, through the virgin birth, lived a sinless life to die on the Cross for the sins of the world, and rose again three days later, and now is seated at the right hand of God the Father. Now the believer is a temple of the third person of the Trinity the Holy Spirit, and has Gifts enabled by Him alone. The way to heaven is through a personal relationship with the Living God, through Christ. By grace alone, not by works. Eph 2:8,9 "For ALL who call upon the name of the Lord will be saved" Romans 10:13
