Existing resources operating independently are not adequate to meet current and growing levels of need. In addition, one church alone cannot deal with all the complex issues of poverty. It takes churches working together, across denominational lines, to meet these multifaceted needs. Furthermore, Love INC can do what the others can't. Agencies, charities and government can provide a safety net to help those in need, but it can't Love and bring transformation like Love In the Name of Christ can.Read More

A Love INC affiliate is a partnership of local churches working together, across denominational lines, to serve people in need in their community. Each affiliate is an individually incorporated 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with its own board of directors, executive director, staff and church volunteers. While each Love INC affiliate is unique with its own mix of programs and services to meet the needs of its community, all affiliates share the same mission and core values. A minimum of six churches from six different denominations is required to start a Love INC affiliate, although most affiliates grow to include many more.

Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:19-21
