What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? - James 2:14

We can be full of biblical knowledge, but our faith comes alive when we exercise it! While works can't save, a saved individual will be working in the kingdom of God. Below are outreach ministries that members of CC Greenville are involved with. These ministries are not organized/run by CC Greenville nor does CC Greenville have any oversight of them, but we fully support the missions of each ministry.

If you are interested in finding out more about these outreach ministries, please use the contact information provided. 

Ministry Name   What the Ministry About?   Who to Contact?

BGEA Rapid Repoonse Team   From the ashes of 9/11, the Rapid Response Team ministry was developed to share Christ in the midst of crisis and disasters. BGEA currently has chaplains in the United States, Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom. These volunteer chaplains are carefully selected and trained to demonstrate the compassion of Jesus Christ and appropriately share God’s hope through the One who “heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds” (Psalm 147:3).   This email address is being protected from spambots.

- Soul Fishers
- Way of the Master
  Soul Fishers meet Friday evenings downtown Greenville in front of Spill the Beans to share the gospel. This is a great way to use what you've been taught in the Way of the Master classes. Check out the Soul Fishers Meetup page for more information.

The Way of the Master is non-denominational. We believe and preach that the Bible is the Word of God, and that Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh, crucified for the sin of the world, and that He rose again on the third day. We believe and teach that salvation is by grace, through faith, and not of works.

Gideons International   The Gideons International is an Association of Christian business and professional men and their wives dedicated to telling people about Jesus through associating together for service, sharing personal testimony, and by providing Bibles and New Testaments. While we are often recognized for our work with hotels, we also place and distribute Scriptures in strategic locations so they are available to those who want them, as well as to those who may not know they need them.   Ed Fridal

Miracle Hill Ministries   In 1937, Miracle Hill Ministries began as a soup kitchen and small rescue mission in downtown Greenville. Since then, we have grown with the Upstate — expanding to meet the changing and diverse needs of homeless, hungry and destitute people. With your help we have become the largest and most comprehensive provider of shelter and food to homeless children, women and men in Upstate South Carolina.   This email address is being protected from spambots.

Miracle Hill Children's Home    Miracle Hill Children’s Home continues to be known as a place of refuge for children from birth to age 18. The children’s home was founded in 1958 to care for unwanted, troubled, neglected and abused children who had no place to stay. Of the children we serve, some are born addicted to drugs. Others experience anger and frustration when dealing with issues and problems in their lives. Every day, we offer crisis and long-term care, as well as foster care licensing. In home-style environments with house mentors, children in our care receive personal counseling, food, shelter, education, discipline and unconditional love – all within a Christian framework.

If you would like to visit and/or provide meals for the children - please contact Johnny or Theresa Dye.

- Greenville For Life
- 40 Days for Life
- Sidewalk Advocates for Life
- Life Chain
  Greenville for Life is a Protestant Pro-Life group. We seek to speak for the unborn and minister with love, in the name of Christ, to everyone who turns into the entrance of Greenville Women’s Clinic. We hope to encourage and equip everyone who wants to STAND for LIFE in Greenville, SC.
40 Days for Life is an international community-based campaign that takes a determined, peaceful approach to showing local communities the consequences of abortion in their own neighborhoods, for their own friends and families. It puts into action a desire to cooperate with God in the carrying out of His plan for the end of abortion. It draws attention to the evil of abortion through the use of a three-point program: Prayer and fasting; Constant vigil; Community outreach.
Sidewalk Advocates for Life provides traning to those interested in sidewalk advocacy. It teaches a peaceful, prayerful, law-abiding approach.
Life Chain is a peaceful and prayerful public witness of pro-life individuals standing for 90 minutes praying for our nation and for an end to abortion. It is a visual statement of solidarity by the Christian community that abortion kills children and that the Church supports the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception until natural death.
