Habitat for Humanity is an ecumenical Christian organization. We are founded on and cling to Christian principles. Jesus Christ is why we do what we do. However, we do not proselytize or require anyone who is involved with our organization to share our beliefs, including volunteers, board members, staff, and homeowners. The cooperation and involvement of the local church body allows us to make a clear and eloquent statement about putting our faith into action.
The Habitat for Humanity Apostles Build is a partnership that allows twelve individual churches to join together to build and fund a home for a local family. As Jesus’ original apostles were charged with spreading the word about Him, our twelve "apostles" are charged with assisting in Habitat’s mission to provide shelter for God’s children. The work of Habitat for Humanity is driven by the desire to give tangible expression to the love of God through the work of eliminating substandard housing.
THE FOUR POINTS OF CHURCH INVOLVEMENT
In an effort to unite the congregations of our area, St. Vrain Habitat urges the worshiping bodies of our community to join together in prayer for the mission of Habitat for Humanity. Additionally, St. Vrain Habitat has identified four points of tactical involvement from which churches can choose. The various points allow individual churches to choose a level of involvement based on their outreach and mission's goals. Each point offers a unique set of opportunities to touch the lives of the families we are serving as well as the community in which we live and worship.
