Transforming Lives Together
Oliver Gospel is a community-based mission that helps those experiencing homelessness, poverty, or addiction transform their lives through physical, spiritual, and relational support so that they can lead full, healthy lives.
Through our Men's Center, Toby's Place (center for women and children), and our social enterprises, we provide holistic rehabilitation, transitional housing, and career development, always aiming for permanent housing and a solid community for each person who comes through our doors.
Oliver Gospel is engaging and transforming lives together through the power of Christ's love.
Guiding those in need from desperation to transformation.
Oliver Gospel seeks to shape our programs, attitude, and culture through five organizational values:
FAITH: We are motivated by our faith to serve as Christ would serve.
PEOPLE: We prioritize all people in our decisions and actions.
COMPASSION: We are committed to loving big.
STEWARDSHIP: We are committed to being responsible with all that we are given.
EXCELLENCE: We are dedicated to being exceptional in all that we do.
Our Statement of Faith
God, the Almighty Father, who made the heaven and earth, is One God in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ, who died for our sins, is the Son of God. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin. He was crucified under Pontius Pilate, was buried and rose again on the third day and now sits at the right hand of God from where He will come to judge the living and the dead.
The Holy Spirit is present in our lives as Christians and will guide and direct us in time of need, according to the will of the Father.
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation of Himself to humanity and is the instrument through which God speaks to us.
All people are born lost and separated from God, and can only be united with Him by the confession of sin and the acceptance of Jesus Christ as Savior.
Salvation is only by grace, a free gift of God, through faith in the Lord Jesus, who died for our sins. Those who receive Christ by faith have their sins forgiven and are made new creatures in Christ.
There will be a resurrection of the body and everlasting life.
