Let us not love in word or talk, but in deed and in truth.
Statement of Faith
We believe in one Sovereign God, eternally existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ, Our Lord), and God the Holy Spirit; we believe that God alone created the heavens and the earth out of nothing by His spoken Word and for His own Glory.
We believe that God has revealed Himself and His truth in the created order, in the Scriptures and supremely in His Son, Jesus Christ, and that the Holy Bible is inspired by God, infallible in all it teaches, inerrant in the original manuscripts, and the final rule of faith and practice.
We believe God created human beings, male and female, in His own image to fellowship with and serve Him forever, but that through Adam and Eve’s sin, the human race experienced the state of sinfulness that resulted in separation from God and condemnation to death.
We believe that Jesus Christ, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, is true God and true man, existing in one person and without sin; that he died on the cross for the sins of the world, was raised bodily from the dead and offers repentance and forgiveness for sins and victory over death unto eternal life to all who believe in Him as Savior and Lord.
We believe that the one, holy universal Church is the body of Christ, made up of believers in all local Christian churches. That Jesus Christ is its head; that the Holy Spirit energizes the body to bear witness to Christ and salvation in the world.
We believe in the blessed hope that Jesus Christ will return to this earth personally, visibly, and unexpectedly, to gather His Church, raise the dead, judge the nations and bring His Kingdom to its fulfillment.
Mean Street Ministry is a non-profit Christian organization serving the working poor along West and East Colfax Avenue. We are dedicated to bringing the love of Christ to those who feel disconnected from family, community and God. We elevate the poor, heal the broken and provide a safe environment for lay Christians to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
Mean Street was born out of a desire to emulate Jesus. He spoke with, laid hands on, and loved the afflicted. He walked with the broken.
Mean Street strived to emulate that model by going to Denver’s poorest and most destitute, right where they lived. Immediately we saw results in the folks we were reaching out to, but it quickly became clear that they weren't the only ones God was changing.
We saw dramatic transformation in our volunteers as well. We realized that we were building an infrastructure for Christians to move from their comfort zone to front line ministry, bringing dramatic transformation and blessings into their lives. Through this perspective God has built our ministry.
