Statement of faith

We Believe...

The Bible to be the only inspired, infallible, inerrant and authoritative Word of God. 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet 1:20-21

That there is one God, creator of heaven and earth, eternally existent in three distinctive persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 1 Tim. 2:5; Gen 1:1; Mt. 3:16-17; Mt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14; John 10:30

In the deity and humanity of Jesus Christ; that He was born of a virgin; that we are redeemed by His atoning death through His shed blood; that He bodily resurrected and ascended into heaven and that He will come again in power and great glory to judge the living and the dead. Eph. 1:7-10; Acts 1:9-11; Mt. 1:23-25; 1 Cor. 15:1-8; 2 Tim. 4:1

In the value and dignity of all people created in God's image, but alienated from God and each other because of our sin and guilt and justly subject to God's wrath. Gen. 1:26-27; Psalm 139:13; Mt. 22:37-39; Rom. 12:20-21; Gal. 6:10; Eph. 2:1-3; Rom. 5:12

That regeneration by the Holy Spirit by grace through faith is essential for the salvation of lost and sinful people. Tit. 3:4-7; Eph. 2:8-9; 2 Cor. 6:2

In the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting solely through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. Col. 1:13-14; 1 Thess. 4:16-17; John 3:16

That the Holy Spirit unites all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and that together they form one body - the church. 1 Cor. 12:12-13; 1 Cor. 12:27

God ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. It is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood or adoption, and that God's design for marriage is the legal joining of one man and one woman in a life-long covenant relationship. Gen. 1:26-28; Eph. 5:21-6:4; Mt. 19:4-6

God creates each person as either male or female, and these two distinct, complementary sexes, together reflect the image and nature of God. Gen. 1:27; Gen. 2:18

History

The Great Depression gave a new meaning to the word "despair," especially for those who did not know where they would sleep or how their next meal would be supplied. With a heart for the hurting and a desire to share the Gospel, in 1937, a group of local businessmen responded to the need by creating a soup kitchen and small mission in Greenville, South Carolina.

With the support of the community, a lodge was built in 1948 with 12 beds for transient men on the first floor and mothers with children on the second. This "Gospel Rescue Mission" grew along with the ever-increasing population of people experiencing homelessness, adding programs and shelters as the needs arose.

Miracle Hill's name developed from a miracle on "The Hill" at Miracle Hill Children's Home situated in the foothills near Table Rock. Volunteer construction workers prayed that the rain would hold off around their site - and it did - on what is now known as Miracle Hill.

Today, Miracle Hill Ministries operates four rescue missions, two addiction recovery programs, a foster home community, transitional homes, a foster care program, a food ministry program, eight thrift stores, and an auto sales operation-all of which contribute to our mission to serve people experiencing homelessness.

Through Christ's provision, hard work, dedication, and the support of our generous sponsors and partners, we're able to serve thousands of people in need in the Upstate each year. And while we're humbled to be able to help so many people move toward stability and wholeness, we haven't lost sight of where we came from.


Program accomplishments

In 2021, Miracle Hill impacted our Upstate communities through:

234,751 safe shelter beds provided

388,885 meals served to the hungry

826 adults found jobs or developed exit strategy

3,654 unique individuals served

557 children sheltered


Needs

Your gifts are greatly needed and appreciated as our shelters are always open and are critical to homeless adults, children in need of fostering, and adults battling addictions.
