As Christians, we have all experienced the pain that sin brings to our lives. Regret, anger, and shame are among the many bruising emotions that come about as a result of making choices that separate us from God. For most, there is an understanding that our faith in Jesus Christ avails us to His grace and forgiveness, and from there we move forward. For some, sin becomes a bigger challenge—at times, an all-consuming challenge. We submit to addictions, compulsive behaviors, and destructive relationships that not only bring pain to our lives, but to the lives of those we love.
But God is so rich in mercy, and He loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, He gave us life when He raised Christ from the dead. ~ Ephesians 2:4
One Step Healing Ministry began in 2011 through the collaboration of Pastor Kevin O’Brien and Pastor Jeff Rudd. The ministry initially focused on individuals and their families struggling with addiction. As the ministry grew, so did the One Step mission.
Rather than focusing only on addiction-related issues, One Step now reaches out to people who find themselves at a place in life where they feel separated from God and are missing out on the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ.
In other words, everyone is welcome at One Step!
The ministry was built upon and remains focused on the solid foundation of two fundamental Biblical promises.
“O Lord my God, I cried out to You and You healed me.” ~ Psalm 30:2
“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away;
behold, all things have become new. ~ 2 Corinthians 5:17
One Step is not an addiction recovery ministry or a 12-step program. At One Step, we believe in the healing power of Jesus Christ and the victory over our sin that was handed to us from the cross. We gather together to receive the grace of Jesus Christ and become new creations through our faith in Him.
