Our mission and vision

Love INC of Brevard County is one of more than a hundred Love INC locations across the United States and Kenya, who partner with over 7,800 Christian churches to serve hundreds of thousands of people in need.

Our local Love INC serves people in need who reside in Brevard County. How? By mobilizing the Church to transform lives and communities In the Name of Christ. Here’s why that works:
Without Love INC

Churches serve their communities in different ways. One area may have a financial literacy program, while another has housing assistance. Yet, when care is not coordinated, needs can be overlooked or duplicated, and people are not served in a holistic manner.

With Love INC

Love INC fosters collaboration and organizes holistic care to help the Church serve our neighbors through resources and relationships. By networking churches, businesses, organizations and individuals together, we create a web of resources from all the services and programs that exist in our community and we coordinate these resources on behalf of clients participating in our life-transformation program.

Core Values

  1. We are Christian. Everything we think, say, and do is in the name of Christ.
  2. Prayer is an integral part of who we are.
  3. We follow Christ’s example of valuing those in need.
  4. We value unity of the Body of Christ.
  5. We value transformation in the lives of people and communities.
  6. We value churches living out the two great commandments to love God and love their neighbors.
  7. We value building Christ-like relationships.
  8. We value the connectedness of the Love INC movement.
  9. We model excellence.

Core Beliefs

Our Partner Churches

Christian churches from across at least six denominations partner together to form a Love INC. Within these partnerships, Love INC serves as the scaffolding upon which greater growth is possible. However, it is the Christians in these churches who model Christ’s love and answer God’s call to serve. Working together as the body of Christ, we can best love and serve our community.
