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.

Ministry NameWhat is the Ministry About?
BGEA Rapid Repoonse TeamFrom 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).
– Way of the Master
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 InternationalThe 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.
Miracle Hill Ministriesn 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.

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.
