Building and volunteering is simply a foot in the door of the lives of people who are in desperate need of the love of Jesus. Through prayer and devotion, our first priority is ministry and sharing the Gospel. Our ministry is based on the instructions from Jesus in Matthew 5:16: "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in Heaven." Our prayer each day is that God will glorify himself at our expense.
We don't stand with the rich, perfect, or popular. We sit with the broken. We know that everyone struggles and falls from the path. From the homeowners to our volunteers and leadership. The good news is that God's grace is bigger than our sin. In our ministry, we believe that falling is an opportunity to pick up our cross and follow Jesus leaving no more room on our shoulders for the weight of the world.
James 2:26 tells us that faith without deeds is dead. As Believers, we know that there is no amount of good deeds that will ever add up to what Jesus did for us. Our good deeds are not required, they're desired. When you are born again, you can't help but find ways to allow God to use you to glorify Himself. Through our good deeds, it is our mission and prayer that God will reveal Jesus to those who may never get another chance to know Him. We simply walk by faith each day and try to make a small difference in the lives of others.
