About Rescue:Freedom:

Rescue:Freedom is on a mission to end sex trafficking in our lifetime. Together, we empower the rescue and restoration of women and children, prevent sexual exploitation from ever happening, and turn everyday people into advocates through education. Through a global network of Local Partners, our holistic solution is ending slavery.

At Rescue:Freedom, we believe every human being is made for freedom. Sex trafficking is modern-day slavery and an unacceptable violation of fundamental human rights. We believe in every person’s inherent dignity, value, and we seek to empower survivors to thrive in freedom.

 

Mission Statement:

We exist to empower the rescue and restoration of those in sexual slavery and to prevent exploitation.

 

Core Values:

 

Statement of Faith:

The work we do is informed and motivated by a deep faith in Jesus and a commitment to His teachings. This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. “And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” 1 John 3:16-18

We believe that all people are created in the image of God with inherent value. They are worthy of love and our best efforts to affirm that value. Our programs serve all people, from all backgrounds, without discrimination of any kind. “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8

We advocate for the vulnerable and exploited because we believe there is hope for a restored life and a better future. “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free” – Jesus, Luke 4:18

 

Statement of Practice:

As followers of Jesus our desire is to obey his teachings in all areas of our lives. We understand that faith is deeply personal and many of us may come from different Christian traditions, but we believe that we are part of “One Body”, and united in our faith in Jesus. While some of our views and practices may vary, we share a commitment to Christian orthodoxy and scripture, and a belief that spiritual community is an essential element of how we practice our faith. We share a commitment to “Love the Lord our God with all our heart, with all our soul and with all our mind, and to love our neighbors like ourselves” (Matthew 22:23-40). As a diverse team from many countries, cultures and Christian traditions, we focus on the elements and practices of our faith and orthodoxy that unite us and not divide us.
