Our goals at Love INC are to:

- educate individuals and empower them to improve their individual situations
Love INC operations include:
- Operate essential clearinghouse to receive requests for assistance, clarify, what the needs are, verify the need, eliminate duplicated services between churches and community agencies, develop a plan for assistance, and follow-up.
- Inventory and maintain a resource database of all charitable church and social services in the Juneau area.
- Work with our 25 church partners to match willing church helpers and resources to corresponding needs, allowing church members opportunities to show that they “love their neighbors as themselves” through support, education, and encouragement.
Love INC PURPOSE: The purpose of Love INC is to organize and coordinate churches in the community of Juneau, Alaska to respond with compassion to individual, family, and project needs in the name of Christ.

APOSTLES CREED: I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic (universal) Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
