HOPE FOR LIFE MINISTRIES

  

Founded in 2016, Hope For Life Ministries seeks to "Proclaim Christ, Advocate for Second Chances."

We do that through advocacy events and our Second Chance Initiative. Our Second Chance Initiative mentors and sponsors families impacted by incarceration and individuals reentering society from prison. Our goal is to see a justice system that reflects the God-given dignity and potential of every person and to see lives changed, chains broken, hearts healed, and families restored! 

  • We believe in the full authority of the Bible as God’s authoritative and inspired Word, without error in all its teachings.
  • We believe in one God, Creator and Lord of the Universe, the co-eternal Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ, God’s Son, was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died a substitutionary, atoning death on the cross, rose bodily from the dead, and ascended to heaven where, as truly God and truly man, He is the only mediator between God and man. 
  • We believe that Christians, both individually and corporately, must submit to the Bible as God’s authoritative, divine, and inspired Word in all matters of belief and conduct.
  • We believe that a restorative approach to prisoners, former prisoners, and all those affected by crime and incarceration reflects the God-given dignity and potential of every person.
  • We believe that Jesus—Himself brought to trial, executed, buried, and brought to life again—offers hope, healing, and a new purpose for each life. He can make even the most broken people and situations affected by crime and incarceration whole again.
  • We believe that through an amazing awakening to new hope and life purpose available through Jesus, those who once broke the law are transformed and mobilized to serve their neighbors, replacing the cycle of crime with a cycle of renewal that restores entire communities. 
  • We believe that because the Bible calls us to remember and visit those in prison, that every Christian is compelled to contribute to the restoration of the incarcerated.
