1. About ARM

Our Purpose

We are a coalition of individuals, churches, and organizations who are committed to:

communicating and demonstrating the transforming grace and truth of Jesus Christ to all those who have experienced the crisis of incarceration and their families, as Scripture instructs us in Matthew 25:39-40 and James 1:27.

♥ calling, equipping and facilitating those who provide help, support, or rehabilitation services, to prisoners and their families (Ephesians 4:11-12).

Our Call

As members of the Church, the people of God, is to be Ambassadors of His Reconciliation to inmates and their families in Butte County.  As representatives of His kingdom, we are to exemplify His character, proclaim His message, and live out His will on earth.

Our Name

Comes from the Bible.  It reflects our commission, given by Christ Himself to His disciples (Matthew 28:18; Acts 1:8), and passed on to the whole Church by Paul.

“If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God!”
2 Corinthians 5:17–20
