One Common Life Christian MissionMy name is Terry W. West. I am President of One Common Life Christian Mission Inc. We are a 501c3 nonprofit Christian Charity. I want to take a moment to tell you about myself and our work.
I am a husband to a beautiful wife, her name is Scarlett, and we have nine children. God has blessed us with His unfathomable mercy and grace found only in Jesus Christ, His Son and our Lord and Savior. Because of His promise in Christ, that we are partakers of His divine nature–by the Holy Spirit whom is given to us–we desire to be used by our Lord to bring the Gospel of the Kingdom and the love of God to those, who are “the least of these” our fellow humanity made in the image of God our Creator.
Our mission is to bring glory to the Lord Jesus Christ as we pray, share the gospel and provide needed assistance to those who are living on the streets or in need of help. We want to minister to the broken, the lost, the hopeless, the destitute, the addicted and the abused, etc. Luke 4:18-19 captures the heart of our mission:
“The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.”
Also Matthew 25:34-40:
‘Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’ “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’’
Jesus came from heaven and became human in every way except without sin, so that He could taste death for everyone. By doing so He bore our sins and conquered death so that those He calls to faith in His name can be made free from sin and death, the power of the devil and have eternal life in Him (Hebrews 2:9-18). This work is the reason we at One Common Life Christian Mission want to see others know our great God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit as we do. So, that they may know the Father’s love in Jesus Christ, His Son and the freedom given by the Holy Spirit. It is a joy to be in service of our Lord, Savior and King!!!
Please pray with us!
