Our Mission and Vision
Mirror Ministries’ mission is to reflect the grace of God to victims and survivors of sex trafficking.
Our vision is to see local victims of sex trafficking become survivors who have hope, healing and restoration by:
- Reaching women and girls being exploited through SUDS Hotel Outreach and direct street outreach
- Connecting survivors of the sex trade with services and real options to reach freedom through the Mirror Ministries Outreach Center and Survivor Services
- Educating the community through awareness presentations and trainings
- Educating and motivating many with SOLD: The Human Trafficking Experience
- Reaching hospitality staff and managers through SUDS Hotel Outreach
Our Statement of Faith
1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, only infallible, authoritative Word of God. II Timothy 3:15-17
2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Matthew 28:19; Ephesians 4:4-6
3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. John 1:1-4; Matthew 1:23; Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 1:1-4 and 4:15; Acts 1:11 & 2:22-24; I Corinthians 15:3-4
4. We believe that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and that for lost and sinful man, repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ results in Salvation and that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation. Romans 3:23; Titus 3:4-7; Luke 24:46-47; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6; Acts 4:12
5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit whose regeneration and indwelling enables the Christian to live a godly life and to perform good works. Titus 3:3-5; Galatians 5:16-18; Romans 8:9
6. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation and eternal punishment. Revelation 20:11-15; I Corinthians 15:51-57
7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church. Ephesians 4:4; I Corinthians 12:12, 27
Mirror Ministries is the result of several years of learning, research, awareness-raising, prayer, and outreach. What began as a ministry through a local church turned into a nation-wide educational experience, an annual hotel outreach, and the beginning of local survivor services. We have stepped out in faith time and again, trusting God to catch us and to light the way for the next step. We are joyfully anticipating the next leg of this journey!
There are several images that resonated with us when we chose the name Mirror Ministries:
Our shared humanity is reflected in the face of every victim of exploitation. We see each one as an individual of inherent dignity and worth. Empathy inspires justice. This is the impetus behind SOLD: The Human Trafficking Experience.
We pray that every survivor of human trafficking will one day be able to look in the mirror and see reflected back a person in inherent dignity and worth. Mirror Ministries advocates come alongside survivors of the sex trade and help them see themselves the way God created them rather than the way they have been treated.
The book of James likens the Word of God to a mirror: you can look into it and act based on what you see. We want to look into the Word of God and do what we see reflected there, including acting with justice, mercy, and humility.
We want to reflect the grace we have received to victims and survivors of exploitation. All of these images find their central point in this image: Reflecting the grace of God to victims and survivors of human trafficking. God’s grace is shown in the incarnation, death, and resurrection of Jesus as he entered into the suffering of humanity, was unjustly accused, condemned and killed, and was raised to life again, triumphing over suffering, injustice, and death. We have received unending grace in our times of need, when we have had no options, and when we have been enslaved to sin. We want to reflect the grace we have received to victims and survivors of human trafficking.
