    Hope in Christ Ministries was launched with clear God’s vision. Our ministry is committed to share the message of Christ with people who have been longing for us to connect with them. Our goal is to recognize specific needs of homeless, ex-offenders, lower-income households and refugees including troubled youth and encourage them to begin new life in Christ.

    We will work faithfully to build the Kingdom of our Lord by supporting each other. The growth of our ministry is how we set a good example of the life of Jesus Christ to others. The blood of Jesus Christ is the offering of his body as “living sacrifice” (Romans 12:1) and in return let us to share the gospel with others. Even though we are incomplete and still tempted by sins in life, we need to be able to live in the light of Jesus Christ who can only rescue us from the darkness. In Romans 3:10, “There is no one righteous.” When we acknowledge the lack of dependence in Jesus Christ and step forward with humility, God will justify us through Jesus Christ.

    Homeless and Ex-Offenders need valuable supports and assistance to successfully engage with community. There is higher risk of re-offending by ex-offenders when they fail to receive the least help or are mistrusted by the community members. In most cases, whether short-term or long-term prisoners, Ex-offenders have many disadvantages of adapting social environment after following release: lack of social skills, housing, family problems and financial difficulties. A majority of them suffer mental and health problems and often falling into past behaviours of using drugs and alcohol to relieve their anxiety and stress. It is tough life for Ex-Offenders to adapt new life in society and in Christian community. The church has also fear of accepting and associating with ex-offenders. Homeless people face social and physical challenges in life as well and they both need many help. They are rejected, discouraged and lonely. We are group of Christians to reaching out with God’s love and mercy.

    The gospel is about changing people and transforming them in the fullness of God’s work through Jesus. “To be a potent witness to the love of Christ and make his hearers more receptive to the message of salvation, true evangelism is showing that Christ and His church are concerned by all aspects of human life and human suffering.” As the Lord has led us to share Christ, we invite everyone to help us to spread the message of loving and merciful Christ. “Mercy triumphs over judgment and faith without deeds is useless” (James 2:13, 20). We are to treat them with dignity and bring them hope through Jesus Christ.

    Grace and peace in Christ,
