To proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and to demonstrate His love by providing affordable, quality primary health care to the underserved.
In response to God’s grace we desire to be a part of the redemptive work of Christ to the economically, socially and spiritually impoverished. We envision an incarnational ministry through a community of believers who use their particular gifts to care for the poor and who bring them into their fellowship.
Our primary means for accomplishing this goal is through health clinics which provide excellent care physically, emotionally and spiritually. We work hand-in-hand with existing ministries as well as help create new ministries as needed to bring Christ to the poor, crippled, blind and lame.
As a community of believers, we envision and earnestly long for the heart of Christ to be developed in us so that we might truly love our neighbor and redeem lives in urban Augusta — for if our hearts are not first healed by Christ, our labor will be in vain. All this is for the Glory of God.
Philosophy of Ministry
Our actions will be guided by the love of Christ, knowing “if we give all our possessions to feed the poor . . . but do not have love, it profits us nothing.”
(1 Corinthians 13:3)
Our actions will be in response to the work of Christ, knowing that “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By His wounds you have been healed.” (1 Peter 2:24)
Our actions will be bound in prayer, knowing we have a Father in heaven who hears our prayers and that Jesus said you have not because you have asked not. (James 4:2b-3)
Our actions will be done in humility, knowing that James wrote to “humble yourself before the Lord, and He will lift you up.” (James 4:10)
Our actions will be performed as a servant, knowing that Jesus “did not come to be served, but to serve” (Matthew 20:28) and knowing that when “Jesus showed them the full extent of His love” (John 13:1) He took off his outer garment, wrapped a towel around him, and washed his disciples feet.
Our actions will be done from a heart that has been in solitude with Christ, knowing Jesus himself, would often get up in the morning “while it was still dark” (Mark 1:35) to be with His Heavenly Father.
Our actions will be done as if doing them to Jesus himself, knowing that “whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25:40)
Our actions will be done to the glory of God, that He alone will be praised, knowing that Scripture says, “whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” (1 Corinthians 10:31)
