Website: www.1WayHome.org

What we do to care for people:
  • Vision: Our vision is to answer the call the Lord has placed on our lives, to carry out the Great Commission (Matt 28:16-20). We believe we are called to be true "fishers of men" (Luke 5:1-11).
  • Mission: Our Mission, we believe, is to carry out this vision in the following ways:
    · Bring an authentic, biblical and uncompromising gospel message to the lost. We believe we are called to the institutions of higher learning (colleges and universities) in western Massachusetts and north central Connecticut, to reach this generation of lost souls.
    · Come to the rescue of those "being led away to death" (Proverbs 24:11). We see this in the institution and abomination of abortion. We believe we are called to speak God's truth about this, in love, to those considering this course of action, and provide them with godly alternatives, beginning with repentance and turning to Jesus as Lord of their life.
    · Provide biblical discipleship to those who have made the decision to surrender their lives to Jesus as Lord.
    · Teach apologetics as an answer to the questions concerning the seeming conflict between the Word of God and science.
