Together for Good creates safety nets for vulnerable families

Together for Good

As women and mothers, we understand how overwhelming life can be when there is no one to
call during times of crisis and need.

Our Mission

Together for Good creates pathways for the local church to come alongside vulnerable children and families in Christ-centered ministry.

What drives us?

Our vision is to live out Isaiah 1:17. Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.

Do Good

We offer tangible opportunities to love vulnerable children and isolated parents. Through Christ-centered ministry, we come alongside families in distress with help, hope and friendship.

Seek Justice

God calls us to defend, visit and care for widows and orphans. We believe Christians are called to walk with the hurting, the rejected and those who are in distress. We are committed to pleading the widow’s cause and bringing justice to the fatherless.

Correct Oppression

Social isolation is one of the greatest risk factors for child abuse and neglect. But many assistance programs fail to provide what struggling parents need most: RELATIONSHIPS.

  • Our Statement of Faith

    1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
    2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
    3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
    4. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
    5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
    6. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
    7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
