When you think about people in prison, what words come to mind? Hopeless? Dangerous? Depraved? Lost? Maybe you never think about those in prison at all except when the news reports a recent jail sentence. Should you?
Hebrews 13:3 gives Christians a clear command: Remember the prisoners as if chained with them—those who are mistreated—since you yourselves are in the body also.
Many in our prison systems “deserve” to be incarcerated for crimes they have committed. Some do not. No matter how or why an individual ends up in jail, the experience can be more than frightening, it can feel like a life-sentence of stigma, depression, and loss of hope. Even a relatively short prison sentence can seem like an eternal trap. Countless souls become disenfranchised and corrupted, and, upon release, turn to drugs, a cycle of crime, and often return to prison because there seems no other way to survive.
At Forever Forgiven Ministries, we believe that incarceration does not have to lead to the trap of demoralization and defeat.
Presenting Freedom In Christ
God can throw open the prison bars in anyone’s heart, setting them free to find joy, purpose, and renewed hope through Christ.
As John 8:32 declares, “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” We hope to offer inmates the opportunity to learn about this truth, accept God’s precious gift, repent of their sins, and commit their lives to Christ.
Supporting Continued Christian Growth
Prison life is not always conducive to spiritual growth, even when an inmate has embraced salvation and experienced true conversion. That’s why we don’t look at Forever Forgiven Prison Ministries as a short-term solution.
Our ministry is ongoing to help incarcerated men and women grow in faith, connect with positive influences, learn how to battle their demons while in prison, and find ongoing support and a healing, Christian community after release.
In other words, Forever Forgiven Ministries’ mission is to help inmates in their walk with Christ during incarceration, through parole and probation, and on into a renewed life filled with the love and grace of the Lord.
