“Helping people change one life at a time...”
Let’s celebrate the victory of light
and life over darkness and death!
“The respect I gained by my actions in the past... Didn’t amount to anything compared to the respect I was given once I announced Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.” M A R C U S O S B Y WILL BE GRADUATING FROM OUR NEW LIFE TRANSFORMATION PROGRAM ON APRIL 14TH. COME JOIN US AS WE CELEBRATE T H I S D A Y, A T S T. M A T T H E W S C H U R C H I N M E R C E D .
On a Friday, almost 2000 years ago, Jesus took upon himself all of the darkness, evil, and sin of this world. He took my sin and paid the price by dying on a cross so that I could be set free. On the following Sunday morning Jesus defeated the power of evil by rising from the grave, defeating death and making life available to all who believe in Him. It is in the power of Jesus Christ that the Rescue Mission helps men and women leave behind the powers of darkness and discover new life. The Resurrection of Jesus is replayed in the lives of men and women who in His power die to their old lives and find new life in Christ! -Dr. Bruce Metcalf Executive Director
