MOBILIZING CHRISTIAN CHURCHES

Love INC is:

  • A Strategy to help churches come together to help their neighbors in need.

  • A Partnership of local churches, that links Christian volunteers and ministries to people in need.

  • A Movement of Christian churches working together to show God’s Love to those in need.

  • A Model for implementing Christ-like relational ministries that transforms lives—both those being served and those who serve.

  • A Method for mobilizing local church congregations to live out the two great commandments of loving God and loving their neighbor.

  • A Network of affiliates supporting and encouraging each other.

  • A Collaboration between local churches and their community (agencies, ministries, government, schools) to provide effective help for the disadvantaged.

  • A Vehicle that helps churches, collectively and individually, fulfill their biblical mandate to reach out to their community.

 

Love INC is the Church:
Churches Make Love INC
Churches Do Love INC
Churches Relate Through Love INC
Churches Mobilize Through Love INC
Churches Own Love INC
Churches ARE Love INC!
