City Rescue Mission goes beyond meeting the emergency needs of homeless and near homeless people in Oklahoma City-with your help, we build bridges to new lives by meeting each individual's need with compassion and care.

Mission statement

Our mission is to lead our community by serving the homeless and near homeless with help, hope, and healing, in the spirit of excellence, under the call of Christ.

Statement of faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired and the only infallible, authoritative Word of God and that it is the supreme and final authority in faith and life. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of 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, in His present rule as Head of the Church, and in His personal return in power and glory. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; that the saved are saved unto the resurrection of life, and that the lost are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, with equality across racial, gender, and class difference.
