Hello, my name is Dirk DeWinkle. I am a local pastor in Howell. And I've been on the board at Love INC in Livingston County since January 2014. I've recently been preaching a series through the book of James, and James has an intense interest in showing mercy. In fact, one of the most famous passages from the book is found in James chapter 1 verse 27 where James is talking about pure and undefiled religion...
"Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world."
This is precisely the mission of Love In the Name of Christ. You see, churches need to work together in order to effectively carry out the mission of the Gospel. Jesus came to save the lost, the hurt, the sick, and the dying. He came to save those who don't have hope. He does this spiritually, with the message of the Gospel. But the message of the Gospel necessarily has hands and feet on the ground.
And churches, institutionally, don't have the resources necessary to effectively do this on their own. But, the body of Christ, the church (broadly speaking), working together with its various parts, from various denominations, can make great strides in this work. In a nutshell, that is what we do, that is what Love INC is all about... enabling the church to bring people to Christ, and bring Christ to His people.
