Our vision is…through the combined efforts of the body of Christ…to feed and clothe the poor and less fortunate, to model the love of God, to love the unlovely and “to preach the good news of Jesus Christ, to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and to release the prisoners from darkness.” Isaiah 61:1
