From hurting to healed.

Our mission is helping homeless & hurting people restore their lives through God’s love.

We welcome our guests with daily essentials to recover from homelessness, hunger, addiction and poverty. We encourage them to pursue life change through our short and long-term recovery programs.

We pray that people leave here healed and whole through Christ’s love and with the tools for stable, independent lives in our community.

Our Mission

The Union Rescue Mission is committed to sharing the gospel and meeting the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of the homeless and poor in our community.

Our highest aim is to lead people to redemptive and vibrant relationships with God.

As the largest emergency shelter and life-change center for homeless men in Kansas, we provide emergency services like meals and overnight housing to meet people’s basic needs. Our community food box program sustains thousands with food. Hundreds of packages of formula and diapers are given to low-income families and single mothers each year.

We provide short and long-term help. Our New Beginnings recovery program offers emotional and spiritual care through Christian discipleship and the tools for men to build new lives, with Christ’s love as their foundation.

We Are

The hands of Christ reaching out with Love, often reaching out to the “Unloved.”

The extended arms of the various churches in the Wichita community, offering Christ’s Plan of Salvation to the Least, the Lost, and the Lonely.

Our Statement of Faith

We believe in the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, as the inspired, infallible and inerrant Word of God, the only record of His Son, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and that it is the supreme and final authority in faith and life for the world.

  • We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. [Genesis 1:26; John 14:9]
  • We believe that Jesus was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin; that He lived a sinless life wrought miracles, and preached an everlasting and unchanging gospel. [Matthew 1:18-25, John 20:30-31].
  • We believe in the absolute deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, that he is Very God, and at the same time very man. [Colossians 2:8-10]
  • We believe that man was created in the image of God that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and that those who reach the age of accountability are sinners in thought, word and deed, therefore standing in need of The Savior Jesus. [Genesis 1:26; Romans 3:23]
  • We believe in salvation only by regeneration, being born again by the Holy Spirit, by God’s own gift of righteousness bestowed upon us through the precious blood of Jesus Christ are we saved. [John 3:3-5; 1 Peter 1:18-19]
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit abides in us to lead us into all truth and to preach the unsearchable riches of Christ Jesus and that we are called to be witnesses by word and deed. [1 Cor. 15:58]
  • We believe in the death, burial and resurrection of our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ, and His personal and imminent return; in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the eternal blessedness of the saved and the eternal and conscious punishment of the lost. [John 11:25]
  • We believe that the Word of God was given by inspiration of The Holy Spirit and is profitable for a fruitful Christian life. [2 Timothy 3:16].
  • We believe concerning the charisma that when regeneration takes place, the believer is immediately baptized by the Holy Spirit [I Cor. 12:13, Romans 8:9b]. Subsequently, the believer is filled with the Holy Spirit as he yields himself to the Spirit’s control.

Principles of Stewardship

The Lord holds us accountable for good stewardship in everything we do. Listed below are the financial principles that the Chief Executive Officer and the Board of Directors try to adhere to:

  • Set high standards for financial accountability and submit to an annual audit by a Christian CPA firm.
  • To encourage donors to meet their obligation to support their home church as well the Mission.
  • To act with integrity and honesty when raising funds and seeking financial support.
  • To use all gifts prayerfully, conservatively, and efficiently, realizing that good stewardship requires keeping administrative expenditures as low as possible.
  • To ensure that 100% of financial donations directly supports the ministries and programs of the Union Rescue Mission.
  • To always use funds as the donor designates, to the extent that the IRS laws allow.
  • To never sell or rent our donor mailing list.
