Bringing help and hope to our homeless and impoverished neighbors in Topeka.

Statement of Faith

We believe that the Bible is the word of God, fully inspired and without error.

We believe that there is one God who fully exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the miraculous Virgin Birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, his sinless humanity and perfect life, his sacrificial death, his bodily resurrection, his ascension to the Father’s right hand and his future return to this earth in power and glory to rule.

We believe that all of humanity has fallen short of God’s glory and because of our sin we are deserving of eternal punishment and separation from God.  However, we believe that God loves the world so much that He gave His only Son, Jesus Christ and that whoever believes and receives God’s gift of His Son, Jesus Christ, will have eternal life.

We believe that it is our commission to share the love of Jesus Christ whith every person we encounter.


In 2017, Topeka Rescue Mission sheltered 2,106 un-duplicated individuals.

Of the 2,106 individuals:

  • 1,176 were Men
  • 620 were Women
  • 310 were Children

Combined, these persons totaled 96,648 nights of shelter provided with an average each night of 265 individuals sheltered. The highest number of guests on a given night was 316 people on Oct. 27th, 2017.

"For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life." Romans 5:6-10 (ESV)

Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. 1 Corinthian 15:1-5
