“You are the salt of the earth…” - Matthew 5:13
Saltshaker is a cross-denominational collaboration of Attleboro area evangelical churches, united to “love our neighbors” in Attleboro.
To encourage the local church to stand together and bring our neighbors to Jesus Christ by serving the spiritual, physical, emotional, and educational needs of our community.
We seek to create a community of authentic love that transforms our neighbors, volunteers, and churches. Out goal is to humbly live out the gospel of Jesus Christ in everything that we do.
Our vision for our neighborhood is to create a loving community through teaching, encouraging, feeding, and clothing those in need.
Our vision for our volunteers is to engage the local church to live out the gospel of Jesus Christ by loving and caring for those in need in our community. This love is manifested through participation in programs and services that meet the needs of the community. The goal is to build relationships in the community that offer hope, meet needs, and display the love of Christ for the lost.
We strive to be:
Love Based – Because the unified local church is the visible body of Christ in the world. Gifted and called to a ministry of reconciliation (2 Cor. 5:17-21), we work together with other Christ honoring church to serve our neighbors by showing God’s gracious and generous love in practical ways. Since God’s love, grace, and mercy comes at a great cost to God but it free to us, we do not charge a fee for any programs or services.
People Oriented – Because people matter to God, they matter to us (Luke 15:1-7; Mt 25:34-45). God has a heart for the poor, the orphan, the widow, and the alien (Isaiah 58) so compassion for those in need is a priority to us.
Christ Centered – Because spiritual needs are not visible bur are of eternal importance, sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ is a central and intentional component of every program, service, and relationship.
God Honoring – Because we represent Jesus Christ, we work with diligence, excellence, and strive to be above reproach in our conduct, attitudes, and financial stewardship.
Prayer Driven – Because real change only happens when God moves, we will bathe all our endeavors in personal and corporate prayer, believing God to bring about authentic transformation.
