Welcome to Prison Fellowship WA
|People today are rightly frustrated and angered by the level of crime and alarming trends toward a society that is producing more problems than it can solve.
But it is exciting that the church has an opportunity lead the way in revealing a flip side to that story. We understand the problem of sin. We know the Good News, which is the missing piece to this puzzle.
Prison Fellowship is taking the lead in this area, and it seeks your support and your voice in seizing this opportunity. As Prison Fellowship ministers to those who are captive in a physical prison, we find that they are captive in other ways: captive to addiction or self-destructive behaviour and imprisoned by their past. They are like broken reeds, blowing in the wind (see Isaiah 42:3).
As we share God’s love, we find many of these people are also broken hearted, blind poor and crushed. To these people we share Jesus’ message of freedom. What we call the Good News.
As we see men and women transformed through this message, we realise that Jesus’ proclamation is still current. The only difference is that He uses us to deliver that message, by word and action.
In Matthew 25:31-46, Jesus explains that when we visit those in prison (as well as those who are hungry and sick), we actually encounter Him.
