Vision, Mission and Spiritual Foundation

VISION: A community spiritually freed from the effects of imprisonment reaching all impacted by
incarceration, through the love, hope and faith found in Jesus Christ.

MISSION: The mission of Kairos Prison Ministry is to share the transforming love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ to impact the hearts and lives of incarcerated men, women and youth, as well as their families, to become loving and productive citizens of their communities.

We in Kairos believe:

  • The Bible is God’s authoritative and inspired word for our faith and our lives.
  • In the Trinity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • In the deity, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
  • Friendship with God is a free gift, for God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
  • The love of Jesus Christ motivates His followers to provide food for the hungry, drink to the thirsty, welcome to the stranger, clothes for the naked and visits to the sick and those in prison.
  • In sharing the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ with all incarcerated individuals, their families and to those who work with them inside and outside the correctional institution.
