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.
