We exist as a church to See People Made Alive In Christ.
While this vision drives everything that we do, we believe that it is not only for the people in Denver but all over the world. We believe that every person matters and that everyone needs to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ. That is why I am so excited to share that one of the new and exciting ways we are accomplishing this mission is through our work with OneChild.
OneChild is a ministry that brings hope, truth, life, love, and mercy to 40,000 children living in poverty around the world. OneChild equips these children to reach their God-given potential by creating opportunities for transformational development: spirit, mind and body.
OneChild shares our heart to facilitate relationships that strategically meet the needs of “the least of these”. We know this is something God has called each of us to do! In January of 2019 we partnered with OneChild to sponsor children in the Dominican Republic and we invite you to continue this partnership with us.
By sponsoring a child you will be making a lasting impact on a child and their family by providing nutritional support, medical aid, educational assistance, and most importantly, an opportunity for these children to learn about God’s love for them.
Lead Pastor, Lifegate Church
A message from OneChild:
OneChild’s Hope Center at Creciendo Church is blessed to partner with Lifegate.
Lifegate is pioneering the work of OneChild in the suburbs of Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic. Vicente Gómez Lantigua, the church’s pastor has the vision to reach the children in the community of Pueblo Chico and has been performing transformational work in there for fourteen years. The children are reached regularly through intimate small groups where the church’s team can serve each child’s needs and desires.
This people-focused ministry is transforming Pueblo Chico. Through sponsorship, you can join OneChild and Lifegate reach the children in this community.
Children’s Best Hope: A Strong Church
Our vision for the church is global: The body of Christ growing, strong, united. If the church is strong in a poverty-stricken community, we know that we can effectively help the children living there. A strong local church partner is one of our prerequisites for ministry. And that ministry isn’t possible without the support of the church in the U.S.
We’re building a
community of hope.
OneChild sponsors provide encouragement, love and support to children living in poverty. And they empower an entire community of caring individuals who walk alongside those children as they grow. Through that community, sponsorship provides the resources and opportunities children need to rise above their circumstances and reach their potential in Christ. In fact, recent research demonstrates that child sponsorship is one of the most effective ways to combat global poverty. There’s real power in one person reaching out to one child through community—power that changes both lives!
Sponsorship with OneChild helps children grow in…
Your child has the opportunity to learn about God and His purpose for their life.
Your child gets help with their studies and is taught problem-solving, leadership, literacy, and life skills.
Your child is provided nutritious food and supplements and has access to medical check-ups and immunizations to fight common diseases.
Your child is encouraged to socialize with others and receives instruction in sports, music, and drama.
WHERE WE SERVE
OneChild sponsors empower the loving community that surrounds each child in our care. You can provide education, medical care, spiritual support, and hope to a child in desperate need.
We are accountable to the children we serve AND to our donors.
Our accountability to our donors is one of our highest priorities. Our goal is to use the funds entrusted to us as wise stewards. To do this requires continued monitoring of our fund distribution. OneChild is also a member in good standing with the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA)
