Purpose

Mission statement

Our mission is to serve homeless people throughout northern Alabama and southern Tennessee by providing Christ-filled care to those in desperate need.


Statement of faith

We believe there is one God, eternal, existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe the Bible to be God's Word inspired by the Holy Spirit.

We believe that man was created in the image of God, holy and innocent, but in his fallen state is in need of salvation.

We believe that Jesus Christ is God, born of a virgin. He gave His life on the Cross where He, Who knew no sin, was made sin for us; He was buried and rose again from the dead and ascended into heaven and is coming again.

We believe that we are saved by grace through faith, apart from works, that the sinner who repents and personally accepts the finished work of Christ on the Cross becomes a child of God, is made a new creature, and is indwelt by the Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus Christ is coming again for His church, to establish His Kingdom on earth, to judge the wicked and to dwell with the saints of God forever.

We believe that through preaching, teaching and ministering, the Downtown Rescue Mission must use all of its resources and activities to bring people under the power of the Gospel, that they may have victory over sin, come into fellowship with God and live a Spirit filled, fruitful life.

We believe marriage is a holy matrimony ordained by God between a man and a woman.
