Romans 10:9 (NASB77)
that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved;
Our vision is to turn lives from crime to Christ through regeneration, rehabilitation and reintegration. In our nine-month program, our trained and certified counselors and educators help “born again” ex-offenders to be all the Lord would have them to be physically, mentally, educationally, vocationally and spiritually.
Regeneration– Our first goal at Mission Gate Prison Ministry is to lead prisoners to a saving knowledge of Christ, to confess Him as Savior and to live their lives under His Lordship. These Christian saints are then discipled to reach out to fellow prisoners with the Good News that we pray will “set the captives free.” Then the other shoe hits the floor: they are released to the free world. There are over 80 opportunities for volunteers to minister in jails and prisons each month!
Rehabilitation– Our second goal is to provide a one year program that will “take the prison out of the inmate.” That is, to disciple them in Christian living that does not shame our Lord. This is accomplished through our one yearAftercare and Guest Home Program in St. Louis and Cuba Missouri.
Reintegration– And lastly, we help them return to society as members of the evangelical church of their choice, gainfully employed, housed, and walking in the Lord as a light upon a hill. They return to “the hood” and when people get to know them, they get to know Jesus. From that point on we have “passed the baton” to the Church they hold their membership with. We pray that they will follow the pastor that follows the Master. At this point, we did our job for His glory and honor.
We are developing a 20 resident ranch for Christian women to establish a stable life, keep a good job and show that they can care for their children as only a Godly mother can. Then we will petition the courts to return their children to them and the care of the day-care we will provide at the ranch while mom is at work. The epistle of James teaches that when we care for the Lord's "widows and orphans" we are worshipping Him Won't you join us in worship?
