OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH
The Foundation of What We Believe
As a Christian organization, Prison Fellowship believes in the
full authority of the Bible as God’s inspired word and the complete
tenets of the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creeds.
We believe in one God, Creator and Lord of the Universe,
the co-eternal Trinity; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe
that Jesus Christ, God’s Son, was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died a
substitutionary atoning death on the cross, rose bodily from the
dead and ascended to heaven where, as truly God and truly man, He
is the only mediator between God and man. We believe that the Bible
is God’s authoritative and inspired Word, without error in all its
How We Are Compelled to Live and to Act
We believe that Christians, both individually and corporately,
must submit to the Bible, as God’s authoritative, divine and
inspired Word, in all matters of belief and conduct.
How Our Mission and Our Approach is Shaped
Prison Fellowship exists to bring glory to God and share His
truth and love with those we serve, our employees, volunteers, and
communities, according to scriptural truths.
Our Mission is to help restore those affected by crime and
incarceration. This Mission is founded on the biblical conviction
that all people are created in God's image and that no life is
beyond God's reach.
Therefore, we believe that a restorative approach to prisoners,
former prisoners, and all those affected by crime and incarceration
reflects the God-given dignity and potential of every person and
can help individual lives and communities flourish.
What the Hope of Jesus Means for Others
We believe that Jesus—Himself brought to trial, executed,
buried, and brought to life again—offers hope, healing, and a new
purpose for each life. He can make even the most broken people and
situations affected by crime and incarceration whole again.
What this Means for Communities
Through an amazing awakening to new hope and life purpose
available through Jesus, those who once broke the law are
transformed and mobilized to serve their neighbors, replacing the
cycle of crime with a cycle of renewal that restores entire
communities. Because the Bible calls us to remember and visit those
in prison, we believe that every Christian is compelled to
contribute to this restorative cycle.
