About Jesus on Colfax Ministries

We engage in a ministry of presence in the name of Jesus, calling people to faith in him, while seeking to impact poverty in all of its forms; with the goal of making a tangible difference in the lives of those we minister to.

We Believe That…

…Prayer is the foundation of all we do

…Jesus goes ahead of us and we then join Him in his work among those who live on and around East Colfax

…We begin by loving people through a ministry of presence and simply love them where they are

…Every person is created in the image of God and we need to love and respect them in a way that acknowledges that

…We will call people to saving faith in Jesus and a life of radical obedience to Him

…calling people into the life of the church, being open to creative expressions of how that gets lived out

…There are many forms of Poverty: spiritual, financial, physical, mental, emotional, relational and vocational

…There is value in partnering with others as we serve the poor

…Jesus wants rich and poor to come together in ways where both give and receive from each other

…The simple act of loving someone with no expectation of return or even change in their lives is success
