What we believe
We believe that the Bible is the written, infallible inspired Word of God, our only rule of faith and practice. The Bible is God's unique revelation to people. No other writings are vested with such divine authority. II Timothy 3:16-17, II Peter 1:20-21
We believe that there is only one God, creator of heaven and earth, who exists eternally as three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each fully God yet each personally distinct from the other. Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 48:12-16, II Corinthians 13:14
We believe that apart from Jesus Christ, all people are spiritually lost and, because of sin, deserve the judgment of God. However, God gives salvation and eternal life to anyone who trusts in Jesus Christ and in His sacrifice on his or her behalf. Salvation cannot be earned through personal goodness or human effort. It is a gift that must be received by humble repentance and faith in Christ and His finished work on the cross. Isaiah 59:2, Romans 3:9-23, Ephesians 2:8-9, John 1:12
We believe that Jesus Christ, second Person of the Trinity, was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless human life, willingly took upon Himself all of our sins, died and rose again bodily, and is at the right hand of the Father as our advocate and mediator. Some day, He will return to consummate history and to fulfill the eternal plan of God. John 1:1-2, 14, 18, Luke 1:35, I John 2:1-2, Colossians 3:1, Hebrews 1:3, 7:25, 9:24
We believe that the Holy Spirit, third Person of the Trinity, convicts the world of sin and draws people to Christ. He also indwells all believers. He is available to empower them to lead Christ-like lives, and gives them spiritual gifts with which to serve the church and reach out to a lost and needy world. John 16:7-15, Romans 8:9, I Corinthians 12:12-14, Ephesians 1:13-14, 5:18, I Peter 4:10
All believers are members of the body of Christ, the one true church universal. Spiritual unity is to be expressed among Christians by acceptance and love of one another across ethnic, cultural, socio-economic, national, generational, gender, and denominational lines. I Corinthians 12:12-14, Ephesians 1:22-23, John 17:17-23, Ephesians 4:1-6
We believe that repentance, confession, baptism, and faithful service are all important in one’s salvation.
Who we are
We are a ministry that uses the sale of coffee to further God's Kingdom. We are a non-profit corporation under the mission board of Powell Christian Church in Powell, Ohio.
What we are doing
We source coffee directly from coffee farmers in Haiti. We sell this coffee and use the proceeds to support our ministry. We serve in the mountains above Grand Goave, Haiti in an area that is very difficult to get to. Because of the remote nature of this area, there are no other ministries around. We help support 5 schools with over 1,000 children. We give Proclaimers (solar powered audio Bibles) to churches where most of the congregation is illiterate. We take the Jesus Film into areas that are primarily Voodoo and where people have never seen a movie before. We take polaroid pictures of people and put stickers with scripture on them. We do simple things to show people that we care. When we do this, we are given permission to tell them about Christ.
Who we are helping
The children in our schools, the people that watch the Jesus Film at our showings, the people we meet on the streets and talk to, the people we give proclaimers to, the people we give polaroid pictures to, the farmers we buy the coffee from, the ministries or schools that are using our coffee to do fundraising, and many more. Only God knows who we help, our job is to submit to His blue print.
