Welcome to Disability Ministries
Thank you for stopping in. We hope you will visit us often for information we trust will be a blessing to you. We are delighted to have your interest. We hope you will send your family, friends, and associates to visit as well. Together, we can make a difference in social justice for people with disabilities.
Disabilities Ministries is committed to equal access, full inclusion and full participation for people with disabilities.
Our mission is to educate and sensitize church members to the challenges faced by people with disabilities, and to remove attitudinal barriers.
We promote equality for people with disabilities in our churches. We advocate for them to have the same rights and privileges as any other member.
This is accomplished through Disabilities Awareness Sabbaths and disabilities education. These two variables lead to disability sensitivity.
We seek to dispel myths about disabilities and replace it with truths. The myth is, a person’s disability is caused by sin. The truth is, the works of God is manifested through people with disabilities (John 9: 1-3). They are equal–not inferior; their abilities by far, out-number their disabilities; they deserve respect and not pity; they cherish their independence and do not desire unsolicited assistance as though they were helpless; they deserve social inclusion without being stared at or overlooked; they have the right to be acknowledged for their humanity, and they have a right to the salvation of Jesus Christ.
Since there is a thin line between righteous and unrighteousness in our Christian beliefs, the ministry educate to prevent sins of omission and commission committed subconsciously in our relationship with people with disabilities. This is important to make our hearts, minds, and actions congruent with the will of God; and to follow His example. We want to see people with disabilities made perfect in the earth made new, and we want many of them to be individuals we have ministered to in this life.
