Assist Those In Need

Love Live Christ strives to empower and inspire people in the local community through the love of Jesus Christ and is committed to helping those in need.

Sometimes people fall upon hard times. This can be the result of circumstances beyond their control, and we must remember the suffering of others is not completely outside of our own experience.

Ignored suffering can fester and ultimately lead to unrest within a community and even turmoil within a nation. Jesus Christ expressed the importance of caring for others and equated it to caring for him. Sowing seeds of love and service produces momentous reward, resulting in stronger families and communities.

The primary goal is not to save people from their circumstances or situations. It is simply to demonstrate the principles of Jesus Christ and reflect his spirit through helping others.  Serving Christ through service to others supports personal fulfillment, and just as importantly, offers a pathway for hope and strengthens our community. Benevolent effort can have a profound effect on others. It is through service that we assist those in need and draw closer to Christ.
Let Christ operate through you by using your hands to help others. Consider volunteering or making a donation if you would like to support this endeavor.
