“And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!” — Matthew 25:40
Why do we do what we do?
It’s simple—to spread the good news of Jesus Christ and to provide everyone an opportunity to know him personally through salvation. While much of our ministry is focused on present needs— our main focus is to provide hope for the future. A hope that is only found in Jesus Christ. Having the opportunity to meet a person’s physical needs allows opportunity to meet their spiritual needs, as well.
However, salvation isn’t a requirement for someone to take part in any of the Child Legacy programs. Water, food, education, healthcare, vocational training and the sustainable projects are open to all who need help.
Evidence of Salvation
“True saving faith will be accompanied by an appropriate feeling of conviction for sin and a desire to please Christ by turning from sin toward God. Saving faith will also include a love for God – and not just a love for the benefits of having faith in Christ. Saving faith and repentance will only be authenticated by a person’s conformity to the image of Christ by displaying the fruit of the Spirit” (Gal 5:22-25). “Works are a necessary fruit of our salvation, but are not the ground of our salvation, since we are saved by grace alone” (Ephesians 2:8-9).
