"For God So Loved the World that He Sent His One and Only Son, that Whoever Believes in Him Shall not Perish but Have Everlasting Life" Jn. 3:16
Our primary mission is to be obedient to Jesus last instruction before He left the earth..."You shall be witnesses...to the ends of the earth." Acts 1:8 This of course includes James teaching as well when he writes "...by my works, I will show you my faith". James 2:18
At Fresh Start we believe strongly in life renewal, and that a joyous productive life begins by forming a personal faith relationship to God through receiving His Son Jesus. In all of our ministry we seek to build followers of Jesus who are Authentic, Relationally Connected, Compassionate, Independent, and Free. We focus is on "teaching" and "hand up" ministries that foster good decisions and independence.
Our people are encouraged to be as involved in local ministries as He wants. Faith Mission, Emmaus Road, Salvation Army, Fight Club, God's Kitchen, Gideon's International, and R.E.T.A among others are all ministries with local chapters that God has led our people to be involved in.

Short-term missions give Alliance people an opportunity to discover how God works to enrich the lives of others. Envision connects you with overseas workers and deepens your commitment to Christ.
