At the heart of the Circle of Love vision are the needs of those on the streets of our city and we seek to implement practical solutions that address those needs.
We meet immediate needs by providing food, shelter and clothing. But we believe that a vital emphasis on spiritual values provides hope and results in changed lives.
At the Circle of Love shelter, those without hope will find a safe place that provides a vision for people and the wisdom for living life. It is a place that allows the power of God to be released enabling people who struggle to do well with life. It is a place where people are stirred by the study of God's word and learn to serve others.
Our vision is "that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, and attaining to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the knowledge of the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge." (Colissians 2:2-3 NKJV)
We are encouraged by the words of scripture that exhort us to "Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works." (Hebrews 10:23-24 KJV)
We invite you to come out to one of our church services at the Circle of Love Ministries Campus located at 13519 N. Main St., Jacksonville, FL 32218.
Our services feature good worship and a relevant message from the word of God. We preach the old time religion, salvation by grace through Jesus. We teach about healing and deliverance, and the sufficiency of Godís Word for daily living.
Therefore, the believer then cannot do without either. Word without Spirit leads not merely to legalism but to a deadening effect on hearer and reader. Spirit without Word brings life, but no concrete criteria as to how life ought to be lived. Both are needed in the Christianís life. - Ben Witherington III
