What We Do And Our Future Vision
Resurrection Ministries is a 501(c)(3) charity. God birthed it in Arthur and Carla's heart to start Resurrection Ministries to bring lifestyle change to inmates, and addicts.
Our mission is to end recidivism, the generational curse of addiction, and the poverty it causes. We do so through the truth and application of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Yes, salvation is part of it, but we want them to walk in Christ. To find freedom for themselves, discover their Godly purpose, and make a difference in the the lives of others. Disciples!
Resurrection Ministries name states our mission; to resurrect that which the world considers dead, without hope, held captive by how they see themselves in their minds eye. To resurrect them from a captive to a deliver. To bring them from the pit with no water, the slavery of their addiction, the prison of their mind, to the deliver God has anointed them to be since the foundation of the world.
IOur Commission Comes From Jesus Himself.
Matthew 25:3636 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
What We Believe!
- We believe every dot and tittle of the bible as the absolute Word of God.
- We believe there is One God with three persons: God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit.
- We believe in the finished works of Jesus Christ.
- We Believe One must be born again for Salvation and then taught to walk in Christ by the renewing of their minds.
- We believe in water baptism after Salvation
- We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking in Tongues.
What We Do
Currently Resurrection ministry goes into Jails on Sunday mornings and preaches a very unique gospel message "how to go from I can't because of_______, to I can do all things through Christ".
Resurrection Ministries operates in what Arthur calls the Joseph anointing (from captive to deliverer)
Besides Salvation and teaching them how to apply the gospel into their everyday life; our goal is for them to call us upon their release,
rather than returning to the lifestyle the arrest delivered them from. We want them to go forward. not returning to their Egypt.
Resurrection Ministries is mainly funded by Arthur and his wife Carla. However, we do sometimes receive small but generous donations from others. All donations are tax deductible. We use the money to supply free bibles to inmates, supply hygiene items via the commissary, buy bus tickets, clothes, etc upon their release so they can enter a program, etc.. We currently attend Our Saviors Church in Lafayette and are submitted to our Pastors and serve at the church as well.
We are believing God for the manifestation of our vision of acquiring our own facility or house to disciple the men upon their release, as well as the non incarcerated addicts. Two programs under one roof.
God birthed in Arthur's heart a vision to have a facility to house, feed, and disciple men leaving jail, and those not incarcerated but are under the bondage of addiction .
Our 14 month program would focus on teaching character change through a gospel based curriculum, job training, opening and operating a checking account, as well as other everyday life skills. Moreover, they will be rooted, planted, and grounded in the local church upon graduation from our program.
The picture above is type of facility structure we are believing for, maybe two buildings on the same property as we grow.
