Jefferson Street Baptist Center exists to extend gospel-centered mercy to the homeless and hurting of the greater Louisville, KY area.
OUR MISSION: Community. Transformation. Christ.
Community: We have been designed by God for community. When creating the world, God called everything “good”, except when man was alone, which he called “not good”. He created us to have community with Him and community with other people. We seek to foster community that is transparent, enriching, honest, supportive, and that walks with God.
Transformation: God desires to do more than simply relieve someone’s discomfort and pain. God desires more than just better life skills for us. God desires to transform us, to make us new people. When someone arrives at JSBC, their life has usually become unmanageable. Often, God uses this place of brokenness to transform both the hearts and actions of the people that come through our doors.
Christ: Only Jesus Christ can bring eternal change. Christ is our source of hope – hope that He knows what is best for us, hope that things will get better, hope that our sins are forgiven, and hope that He has set us free and will bring us into a new life with Him. Christ is the sole source of all good things and all eternal hope.
