Our Mission Statement
Luke 923 Ministry is a Christian non-profit organization providing help and hope for the homeless and those in need through emergency and transitional housing and outreach services leading to self-sufficiency and self-worth.
"For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.'
'Then the righteous will answer him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?'
And the King will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.'"
Our Core Values
Luke 923 Ministry stands on Christian principles; seeking God’s guidance through prayer and operating with the utmost of integrity and humility. We seek to be transparent in operation and responsible in stewardship, always with respect and appreciation for all who serve and are served through our mission.
“Lord, please help me.
Because I know that without You, I can do nothing.
And I know that without love, I am nothing.
Without love, it doesn’t matter how much I give.
The only way I can be anything is if I am Yours and
The only way people will know that I am Yours is if I love"
Our Guiding Principles
Luke 923 Ministry seeks to develop our organization, enlist community partners, and recruit staff and volunteers according to the following principles:
♥ We will view our clients and our surrounding community as our guests and neighbors with whom we wish to cultivate a relationship rather than seeing them as having problems to be resolved.
♥ We will collaborate with community leaders, citizens, local government, educational institutions, human-service organizations, businesses, congregations, foundations, and other non-profit organizations to develop a spirit of inclusion and partnership.
♥ We will create programs that open avenues to self-sufficiency, which will allow our guests to become productive and valuable members of our community.
♥ We will seek to develop innovative cross-sectional partnerships by involving our guests in opportunities where they can offer their skills and leadership in the ongoing programs of Luke 923 Ministry and those of our community partners.
Our Statement of Faith
Luke 923 Ministry:
† Is founded upon the faith that there is but one Creator and sustaining God who manifests Himself in three personal revelations as our loving Father, as Jesus Christ the Son, and as the Holy Spirit.
† We believe that our loving God calls us to love Him and others unconditionally.
† We believe in the proclamation of God's love through acts of mercy and justice to the poor.
† We believe the Bible is God's inspired Word of loving the world through acts of salvation, mercy and justice.
† We believe that just as God used ordinary people in the Bible to accomplish His mission of love so God uses ordinary people today to accomplish His mission of love by proclaiming the Good News of salvation through acts of mercy and justice for those whom society finds hard to love.
† We believe that it takes a unified effort on the part of all God's people for His love to be given to and seen in a broken and needy world.
1 John 4:7-19(NIV) -- God’s Love
7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
13 This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit. 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. 15 If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. 16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.
God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. 17 This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus.18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
19 We love because he first loved us.
"If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily and follow me.” - Luke 9:23
