Love INC's Defining Difference: Focusing on the person, not just the need.
We build relationships with those that we work with. We listen to their story. We walk alongside them during their struggles and together we find solutions, hope and peace.
This takes time, trust, patience...it also is the fine line between keeping someone stuck in their need or truly giving someone a hand up. Our clients are worth more than a gas card, clothing, personal care items, a pair of shoes or a washer and dryer.
We believe in recognizing their value. Encouraging their unique gifts and talents. Emphasizing mutual participation. Empowering those individuals to take the steps necessary to heal from the past and move forward to the future God has for them.
"Needs will not change until we change how we meet needs."
We believe every person has value
Our mission is to mobilize local churches to transform lives and communities In the Name of Christ.
"For you know that God paid a ransom to save you... It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless spotless Lamb of God."
1 Peter 1:18-19
We are Christian
Everything we think, say, and do is In the Name of Christ.
"We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us."
2 Corinthians 5:20
Prayer is a vital part of who we are
It's how we start our day, our meetings, before we answer any phone calls...we pray. This gives God the opportunity to guide us on what He wants us to do. We're never disappointed.
"And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests." Ephesians 6:18
