Open Hearts Community Mission

Matthew 25:34-35: Then the King will say to those on His right hand, 'Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in.'

Our purpose is to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, restore the downtrodden, and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
