Mission Statement


Helping the Hurting in Jesus' Name

Description


We do much more than feed the homeless. We "rescue" people by intervening in their moment of crisis--homelessness, addiction, abuse, release from prison, etc. with the life changing message of the Gospel.

Organizational Statement of Faith


•We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, innerant Word of God. •We believe there is one God, eternally existing as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. •We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is Deity, that HE was born of a virgin, that we are redeemed by HIS atoning death through HIS shed blood, that HE bodily resurrected and ascended into heaven, and that HE will come again in power and great glory. •We believe that individuals are saved through a direct, personal encounter with the risen Lord, at which time they are regenerated by the Holy Spirit. This event we hold to be an experience, rather than a doctrinal supposition. •We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whom Christ indwells each believer enabling him or her to live a Godly life of obedience as he or she reaches for maturity. •We believe the Holy Spirit unites all true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and that together they form one body, the CHURCH. •We refrain from conducting ordinances (Lord's Supper, Baptism, etc) as we believe this is for the local church.
