Our vision is to provide hope to the hopeless, and we begin with providing for a simple need, food. it is something many of us take for granted everyday, that we have food in the cupboards and a meal at the table. Many families and individuals are not so fortunate. On the flip side, in every community thousands of pounds of food is wasted everyday while many go hungry. The food supply is there, the distribution is not.
Gates of Hope provides a place where we can serve our Lord by serving the needs of others instead of ourselves. We are not masters we are stewards that have been entrusted with gifts, talents, and resources. Everything we have is because of the grace of God on our lives.
Ephesians 4:11-12 tells us that "Every Born Again Believer is called and equipped to be involved in the "work of the ministry" We are given Spiritual gifts so that we can contribute to the cause of Christ out of gratitude for all He has already done for us.
Gates of Hope Inc. is based on 1 Peter 4:10, 11 "Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of Gods grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen"
