To share the Good News and the Gospel of Jesus Christ and unconditional love with prisoners.
What we Believe
- We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that Jesus Christ gave His life and shed His blood on the cross for our sins.
- We believe our only hope for salvation is confessing our sin to God and believing in the death, burial, and resurrection of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, buried with Him in water baptism, and raised in newness of life, living under the lordship of Christ.
- We believe that our primary responsibility in this life is to fulfill the Great Commission given to us by our Lord Jesus Christ to evangelize the world through the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 1:4-8)
Lending a helping hand to the needy, the less fortunate, the desperate and desolate in our society is an activity many talk about but few engage in. This is because many of us have the notion that they are “a class above” those who seek their help and that these less fortunate people may pose as a threat to their security.
Well, here at Deliverance Church Kasarani we know what it means to put a smile on people’s faces and the rewards that come with touching a wounded heart. We seek to see the children, youth and marginalized members of our society leading dignified livelihoods. Prison visits connects us also with the family members and wounded friends.
The liberation of their souls and the proximity to people who can associate with their pain, struggles and frustration brought about a feeling of freedom and release from the bars of prison that lock them from the rest of the world.
Prisons all over the country are filled with hundreds of inmates who will someday be released back into their families and communities. Numerous studies indicate that nearly 70 percent of released prisoners will commit another offence and return to prison within three years. Prisoners are hidden away from society during their sentence, but upon release they will either impact their community for better or worse. This is why it is crucial that prisons be truly rehabilitative and one way is through the sharing of the Word of God and re-integration back to the community.
Among the prisons we visited are Thika, King’ong’o in Nyeri, Maranjau, Mwea, Kerugoya and Kamiti Maximum Prison and Youth Correction and Training Centre(YCTC), Naivasha, Muranga, Lang’ata Women Maximum Prison, Mwea Prison and Industrial Area. Many people have so far confessed Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. Through the support of Prison Ministry friends, we have given out bar soaps, toilet paper, hand kerchiefs and water filters to the prisoners.
We have always had people supporting us in prayers. To date, we have given out hundreds of Bibles to prisoners and Sunday school materials to children in prison.
