Mission statement

Mercy Multiplied exists to provide opportunities and resources for all to experience God's unconditional love, forgiveness, and life-transforming power.

Statement of faith

The Scriptures: We believe that the Holy Bible was written by divine inspiration, and that it is a record of God's revelation of Himself to man. It is a book of divine instruction. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; John 1:1-14)

God: We believe there is only one living and true God, and that the eternal God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each member of the Trinity has distinct personal attributes, but yet is still one. (Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 12:28-31)

God the Father

He is fatherly in His attitude toward all men. He is all powerful, all knowing, omnipresent, omnipotent, and sovereign. (Jeremiah 10:12; Psalm 139: 7-10; Psalm 147:5; Proverbs 15:3; Romans 1:20)

God the Son

Jesus is the eternal Son of God. We believe He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He was crucified, willingly shedding His blood for the redemption of mankind and forgiveness of sins to all who receive the sacrifice. He was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day He rose from the dead with a glorified body, appeared to His disciples, ascended to heaven, and is now exalted at the right hand of God where He is the One Mediator, bringing reconciliation between God and man. He will return in power and glory to judge the world and to complete His redemptive mission. He now dwells in all believers as the living and ever-present Lord. (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 3:17; Acts 1:8-11; Romans 8:31-34; 1 Timothy 3:16; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-6; Titus 2:11-14)

God the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God (the Comforter, the Intercessor, the Strengthener, the Standby, the Counselor). He illuminates men to understand truth, and He draws men to the Father. He convicts of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. He enlightens and empowers the believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and service. (John 16:7-8; 1 Corinthians 6:19; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Galatians 5:16-17; Romans 8:5-13)

Man: We believe man was created in the image of God by a special act of God Himself. Man was created free of sin and innocent, but with a free choice. By man's choice, sin entered the human race. Thus, the fall came by choosing to follow Satan and his temptation. Redemption comes through receiving Christ as a free gift and believing in the heart that He died for sins through the shedding of His own blood, and receiving and accepting the free gift of salvation offered to "whosoever will." (Genesis 1:26; Galatians 3:17-24; Romans 5:6-10; 1 Thessalonians 5:9-10)

Salvation: We believe in the new birth as work of God's grace whereby believers become new creatures in Christ Jesus. It is a change of heart wrought by the Holy Spirit through conviction of sin, to which the sinner responds in repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. (Matthew 16:24-26; John 3:16-18; Romans 10:9-13)

The Church: The Church universal is the Body of Christ, and it consists of all true believers who are associated by their covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel. The various local churches are smaller entities of the universal body of true believers. The Church operates under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, and He raises up pastors and deacons as leaders. The pastors are the shepherds of the individual flocks. (Ephesians 1:18-23; Ephesians 4:4-13)

Baptism: We believe in following the example of Christ in water baptism. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, and the believer's death to sin, burial of the old life, and a resurrection to walk in the newness of life in Christ Jesus. (Matthew 28:16-20; Mark 1:4-11)

The Lord's Supper: We believe in the Lord's Supper as a symbolic act of obedience whereby members of the church remember the death of Christ by partaking of bread and fruit of the vine. (Matthew 26:26-28; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)

Tithing: We believe in giving a tithe, or a tenth, of total income in order to balance responsible stewardship with following the Holy Spirit. (Malachi 3:8-10)

Marriage, Gender, and Sexuality: We believe God created every person in His image as male or female. These are two distinct, complementary genders and rejection of one's biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person. We believe marriage is an institution created by God as a covenant relationship established by mutual vows exchanged exclusively between one man and one woman. We believe God intends for sexual intimacy to only occur between a man and a woman who are married to each other. (Genesis 1:26-27; Genesis 2:18-24; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, 18-20; 1 Corinthians 7:2-5; Hebrews 13:4; Romans 1:18-32; Leviticus 18:22; Leviticus 20:13)

Sanctity of Life: We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life. (Psalm 139)

This statement of faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, the infallible, written Word of God, is the sole basis and final source of all that we believe. For purposes of Mercy Multiplied's faith, practice, policy, and discipline, our board of directors is the final interpretive authority on the meaning and application of the Statement of Faith for Mercy Multiplied.

The vision for Mercy Multiplied was launched in 1983 after Founder and President, Nancy Alcorn, spent eight years working for the government. Realizing that true transformation would never come as the result of any government system, Nancy started the first residential home in West Monroe, Louisiana. Mercy's residential counseling program helps young women ages 13-32 break free from life controlling issues and situations, including anxiety, depression, sexual abuse, eating disorders, self-harm, addictions, unplanned pregnancy, and sex trafficking. These residential services are offered free-of-charge.

Over the years, Mercy has expanded its United States residential locations to Nashville, Tennessee; St. Louis, Missouri; and Sacramento, California, with future plans to build a residential home in the panhandle of Florida. The organization has grown beyond the borders of the United States, including locations in the United Kingdom, and Canada. In September of 2020, Mercy Multiplied launched its first Mercy Multiplied Center for Wellness and Counseling in West Monroe, LA - right in the very location where the ministry began in 1983. This center offers a free-of-charge outpatient counseling program to women aged 13 and older. This center is a prototype and Mercy expects to expand these services to other locations in 2021.

In 2016, after seeing thousands of lives transformed in the residential program, Mercy decided that it was time to adapt its highly successful counseling model into an 8-week discipleship resource so men and women of all ages, at any point in their walk with the Lord, could find new levels of freedom and healing in Christ. In addition to the Keys to Freedom study, our Outreach Services also train and resource men and women to effectively support and minister to those who are hurting and struggling through workshops, videos, podcasts, and other practical resources. Our goal is to share the life transforming principles used in our residential program to empower men and women of all ages to live in freedom.

Program accomplishments

Remaining ever faithful to its three founding principles: (1) accept girls free-of-charge, (2) always give at least ten percent of all donations to other organizations and ministries, and (3) do not take any state or federal funding or any money that interferes with the freedom to share Christ, Mercy has seen thousands of lives transformed through the power of Christ.

In a recent survey of former Mercy residents, 94 percent of respondents said Mercy transformed their lives and restored their hope. Time and time again we have seen girls who have no hope or will to live develop into strong, passionate leaders. God is using Mercy graduates to impact lives all over the world.
