We are an organization founded on Christian principles, welcoming people from all walks of life to share in our
mission. The work of Habitat for Humanity is driven by the desire to give tangible expression to the love of God
through the work of eliminating poverty housing. Habitat's mission and methods are primarily based on the necessity of
putting faith into action, the "economics of Jesus" and the "theology of the hammer."
Faith in Action Our love must not be words only—it must be true love, which shows itself in action. Habitat
provides an opportunity for people to put their faith and love into action, bringing diverse groups of people together to
make affordable housing and better communities a reality for everyone.
The Economics of Jesus Jesus commands us to respond to the needs of others and give what we have without seeking
profit. Habitat calls this “the economics of Jesus.” By sharing resources with those in need, Habitat provides families
with adequate housing as we strive to love our neighbors as ourselves.
The Theology of the Hammer Habitat is about putting God's love into action, which means everyone's hammer can
become an instrument to spread God's love. Habitat calls this “the theology of the hammer.” Our many volunteers come from
different backgrounds, but they all unite in the mission to spread love through building homes for those in need.
