sharing the love of Jesus Christ -
The early seeds of Habitat were sown in the 1940's where a man named Clarence Jordan sought to create an inter-racial farm in Americus GA to emulate the early Christian Church found in Acts chapter 2. From these seeds germinated Habitat for Humanity in 1976.
Nearly 40 years later we still aim to keep God at the center of our work as our 1st mission principal is to "Demonstrate the Love of Jesus Christ" to any and everyone irrespective of any social identifier.
In response to the prophet Micah’s call in Micah 6:8, Habitat for Humanity desires to give tangible expression to the love and mercy of God through the work of eliminating poverty housing. Habitat’s ministry is based on the conviction that to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, we must love and care for one another.
Our love must not be words only — it must be true love, which shows itself in action. Habitat provides an opportunity for people to put their faith and love into action. We bring diverse groups of people together to make affordable housing and better communities a reality for everyone.
