Vision of SODC
Loving God, Loving People and Loving Life. We are committed to make a difference in our local community.
Mission of SODC
To reach out to the disillusioned, disenchanted, disconnected, disenfranchised and spiritual seekers by introducing them to the accepting and loving Jesus Christ. It is our goal to get them connected within a loving body of Christ followers, helping them grow in Christ through discipleship, and sending them out to reach those that don't know Christ, who are backslidden, or maybe hopeless.
How SODC Accomplishes its Vision and Mission
SODC members believe as we love God He will lead us to those who need the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Out of our love for these individuals we will connect with them to show them the love of God and then lead them to a saving relatonship with Christ. We will then help them to become strong followers of Christ through discipleship so they can not only be justified through Christ but so they can walk in holiness (sanctification). We will in the process equip them and send them out to win others to Christ.
Christian men who live in the Valley Ridge house of Fairhaven House have the opportunity to be involved in ministry at Seattle Open Door Church. They also have the opportunity to receive spiritual counseling and coaching. Thus, Fairhaven House offers much more than affordable housing.
