Mission statement

Offering life-changing hope through the restoring power of Jesus Christ.

Statement of faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible authoritative Word of God.

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that for the salvation of the lost and sinful, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by who's indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.

We believe in the binding obligation upon all Christians to promote evangelizing the world.

Grant County Rescue Mission began in 1985 when a several compassionate people in the community, led by Reverend Charles Cooper, felt a passion to help hungry and homeless neighbors in need.

Together, they purchased the building at 423 S. Gallatin Street in Marion, formerly owned by the telephone company. A thrift store on the second floor funded their efforts. Within a year, they began sheltering a few men and feeding around 20 people at dinner each day.

Since that humble beginning, the Mission has stood as a beacon of hope to hurting people in crisis. Continued public support has helped the Mission expand programs for meals, addiction recovery and transitional housing.

Though the Mission discovered some mismanagement in the recent years, new leadership in 2016 was brought in to ensure excellence and restore trust with the community. Already, the Mission has made tremendous progress in restoring areas of our facilities and launching new programs. We have a strong vision for the future and hope to do even more as community support allows.
