TO OFFER HOPE, and NEW LIFE IN CHRIST to FAMILIES
Our mission is to provide transitional housing for women and children and lifestyle training for individuals throughout Southwest Washington. So, we serve people who have suffered by life choices and circumstances and assist them in rebuilding their lives with dignity and service. We provide these services to qualified and dedicated individuals, without regard to religion or race.
We at SAFE Family Ministries will work together in partnership to seek ways to (re) connect women (and families) to a safe and loving community. We assist them through addiction counseling, vocational training, financial and personal management education, to become healthy and productive adults who contribute in a positive way to make our and their world a better place to live. We commit to work with them within a structured framework based on Biblical principles. We are committed to be an open, loving and transformational, residential community which seeks to offer hope, hospitality, and personal and practical help to persons in need.
About God: There is one true and living God manifested in three equal but separate persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God is eternal, omnipotent, omnipresent, and perfect in holiness.
About Jesus Christ: Jesus is fully God and became fully man at His incarnation as He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. By His substitutionary death on the cross at Calvary He made complete provision for redemption of man. He arose from the dead after three days of His own power and now is exalted at the right hand of the Father in heaven. He will call His Bride, the church, to join Him and He will return in power and glory to judge the world and reign forever.
About Holy Spirit: Holy Spirit exalts Christ. Through inspiration He led holy men to write the Scriptures. Today through illumination He enables men to understand the Truth. He convicts of sin, leads men to the Savior, and effects regeneration as the repentant sinner accepts forgiveness through the finished work of Christ. His presence in the believer assures eternal life. He is the ever abiding Comforter promised by Jesus.
Our sin has separated us from God. We are all sinners by nature and by choice: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
We deserve death and hell: ” For the wages of sin is death.” (Romans 6:23)
We are powerless to save ourselves: ” All our righteousness are like filthy rags.” (Isaiah 64:6); “Not by works least any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:9); and Jesus said; “I am the way the truth and the life: no man comes to the Father but by Me.”
God loves you and has a purpose for your life. He wants you to have eternal life. For all that would believe in Christ: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
Because Jesus paid the price for our sin: “For Christ also has once suffered for sins, the Just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God.” (1Peter 3:18)
Jesus rose from the dead that we could have eternal life: “(Jesus) was delivered for our offenses, and was raised again for our justification.” (Romans 4:25)
We must receive Him as Savior: “But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become sons of God” (John 1:12)
We must place our faith in Him: “For by grace are you saved through faith: and not of yourselves; it is a gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8)
We must confess and believe: “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved” (Roman 10:9)
