Bringing help and hope to our homeless and impoverished neighbors in Topeka.
Statement of Faith
We believe that the Bible is the word of God, fully inspired and without error.
We believe that there is one God who fully exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the miraculous Virgin Birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, his sinless humanity and perfect life, his sacrificial death, his bodily resurrection, his ascension to the Father’s right hand and his future return to this earth in power and glory to rule.
We believe that all of humanity has fallen short of God’s glory and because of our sin we are deserving of eternal punishment and separation from God. However, we believe that God loves the world so much that He gave His only Son, Jesus Christ and that whoever believes and receives God’s gift of His Son, Jesus Christ, will have eternal life.
We believe that it is our commission to share the love of Jesus Christ whith every person we encounter.

Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. 1 Corinthian 15:1-5
"Now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presencewithout a single fault. All glory to him who alone is God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord. All glory, majesty, power, and authority are his before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time! Amen." Jude 24-25
"I have been crucified with Christ and it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and delivered Himself up for me ." Galatians 2:20
This is my command – be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9
