Gospel and Prayer
We believe that God is the ultimate rescuer of homelessness, addiction, despair, and loneliness.
As part of our overall mission to help the homeless and needy in our community, we believe strongly in sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Every day, at 7:00 pm we invite all of our guests to join in a time of worshipping God. They are open to anyone and are held in the multi-purpose rooms in the Men’s Shelter and the Family Shelter.
The Chapel services are led by volunteer speakers and preachers from local churches. We invite you to consider signing up to lead one, or several, Chapel services. We welcome individuals, groups, and even singing groups that have a Christian inspirational message that can be life-changing and uplifting for all of our guests.
If you can’t join us, we ask that you remember us in your prayers so that our Chapel services are full of the power of God.
Admit to God that you are a sinner. Everyone needs salvation. Each of us has a problem the Bible calls sin. Sin is a refusal to acknowledge God’s authority over our lives. Everyone who does not live a life of perfect obedience to the Lord is guilty of sin.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23)
Spiritual death means eternal separation from God. By God’s perfect standard, we are guilty of sin and therefore subject to punishment for sin, which is separation from God. Admitting that you are a sinner and separated from God is the first step of repentance, which is turning from sin and self and turning toward God.
Believe in Jesus Christ as God’s Son and receive Jesus’ gift of forgiveness from sin. God loves each of us. God offers us salvation. Although we have done nothing to deserve His love and salvation, God wants to save us, in the death of Jesus on the cross, God provided salvation for all who would repent of their sins and believe in Jesus.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16)
Confess your faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord to others. After you have received Jesus Christ into your life, share your decision with another person. Tell your pastor or a Christian friend about your decision. Following Christ’s example, ask for baptism by immersion in your local church as a public expression of your faith.
“If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord’, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved” (Romans 10:9-10)
