ABOUT OUR FAITH

Our faith in God is a huge part of who we are and impacts all we do.  We are passionate about sharing His love with the guests who come through our doors, with no exclusions. Haven is not affiliated with any denomination, nor are we a para-church organization. We are however deeply faith-based in our thinking, philosophy, and methods.  
 

Our beliefs are based on Jesus’ command to “‘love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’” (Matthew 22:37-39 NIV).

We strongly believe that though we cannot change the past, we can radically improve the future.  The past doesn't have to define the future.  

Our doors are open to all women who have been victimized, regardless of their beliefs.


During their stay at Haven, we will invite the women to explore faith and church, but we will never force anyone.  Jesus never forces anyone, but rather invites all into a relationship with Him. We will follow His example in this.


We believe Jesus elevates and forever established the precious value of women as equal heirs of goodness and worth. 


We believe He is grieved deeply when one of His daughters is brutalized in such intimate ways.


We are confident that He cares deeply and that He will work in and through Haven to heal and restore.  


We believe that God and Prayer are a crucial part of the healing of the broken.
