At the Butte Rescue Mission, we feed, clothe and shelter the broken, impoverished, addicted and forgotten
Our success here at the Butte Rescue Mission is based on taking a comprehensive and holistic approach. As we deal with the emotional, psychological and physical needs of the individual. We believe in nurturing their spiritual growth as well. Here each person is taught that they have a natural belonging endowed to them only by their Creator. This is where real change takes place. The solution to all of the symptoms encountered here at the Butte Rescue Mission has been and will always be instilling the hope that is rooted in the saving grace and the power of the Gospel. This is what separates our programs from all the other outreaches in our community
If the ultimate objective is to break the cycle of addiction and the things that hinder one's life, then the core tactics of lock-down, detox, education, support groups and the like, are not enough. The key to complete recovery is a change of heart because if this does not occur, then the root of the problem(s) goes unaddressed and failure is inevitable. That is what we do at the Butte Rescue Mission. We help people so they can know that their future can be different. We offer services which enable them to choose a different life. We guide them from "Crisis" to "Restoration." There is a four-letter word for that process. The word is H-O-P-E

1. I believe the Bible is the inspired word of God. It is infallible and authoritative.
2. I believe that Jesus's death on the cross and his blood is the only means of Salvation, accompanied by my repentance of sin.
3. I believe that Jesus was born a virgin, conceived by the Holy Spirit. I believe that he is both God and Man. I believe he led a sinless life, rose from the dead, and is in Heaven, sitting at the right hand of God
4. I believe that God internally exists in three separate manifestations: God The Father, God The Son and God The Holy Spirit, each separate duty, yet one in person.
5. I believe that man was born with a sinful nature (flesh), cannot of or in himself be saved.
6. I believe in "The Blessed Hope", which is the personal and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, to claim all who have received Him and to set up his Kingdom.
7. I believe in the bodily resurrection of all persons, saved or lost, the saved unto eternal life in heaven and the glories of God, the lost unto eternal damnation in hell.
8. I believe in the spiritual unity of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.
