Hands in Service is a faith-based organization. While as Christians, we approach serving as a love response to God, we recognize that not all our volunteers will have the same relationship with God. It is our desire to work with anyone who wants to help us make a difference. What we ask is that in a volunteer capacity and while representing Hands in Service, there is recognition and honor of the faith statement. Volunteers are asked not to present or act from any alternate faith position and to conduct themselves with integrity and wholesome behavior and language for the edification of all concerned.
From Scripture we believe:
There is only one sovereign God who manifests as three - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - or Trinity. He is infinite and eternal, He has always been God and He is the Creator of everything that exists.
All people are guilty of wrong acts and thoughts. This nature separates humans from God's holiness but not from His love!
Jesus is fully God and fully man. Jesus was conceived through the power of the Holy Spirit; the birth child of the Virgin Mary, and lived a perfect life. Because of His love for us, Jesus Christ became our representative and substitute, dying as the payment for our wrong actions and thoughts and was physically raised from the dead after three days.
Those who choose to enter into relationship with Jesus Christ as sovereign over their lives and accept His death in their place receive forgiveness and restored relationship to God the Father and will live with Him forever.
