LYN House

Organization Description: 

The LYN House is located across the street from First Free Methodist Church. Its presence in the neighborhood is a beacon of hope for residents living in poverty who have emotional, educational and physical needs. The LYN House desires to be a place that helps meet each of these needs, and most importantly, we hope to meet the spiritual needs of the community by centering our ministry at the cross of Jesus. The neighborhood surrounding LYN House is considered to be one of the neediest areas of Indianapolis. We strive to make a difference in our community through acts of generous hospitality, and we hope to create community through unity with neighboring agencies and churches.

The ultimate goals of the LYN House are to provide a safe place for the community’s residents, to gather for fellowship, and to help meet the educational needs of the community through tutoring and mentoring. In order to achieve these goals we will need to gain and maintain regular volunteer support (weekly, monthly, and by projects); regular financial support; and relationships and partnerships with local agencies and churches.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

We believe the Bible is God’s written Word, uniquely inspired by the Holy Spirit; It bears unerring witness to Jesus Christ, the Living Word. The Bible has authority over all human life.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful humanity, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
