Welcome to One Way Love Ministries

AboutUsPicSpreading God’s message of grace, mercy and His indiscriminate love to St. Tammany Parish and beyond;  One Way Love Ministries serves all people. We follow the example of Jesus who had heartfelt compassion and a way of tenderness that knew no frontiers. He ministered to people without using labels or compartmentalizing them.  Our hearts strive to do the same.

The Gospel of Grace is a call to love the same way Jesus did. It’s the Good News that will attract the world to the saving beauty of Jesus Christ. One Way Love Ministries will go where we’re called and do what God asks us to do in order to demonstrate His passion for His children.

 Our Belief

The perfect expression of God’s love for us is Jesus laying aside his power and dying on a cross for the sins of the whole world. “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” 2 Cor. 5:21 (NIV). God declares the sinner to be innocent of his or her sins. It is not that we are sinless, but that we are “declared” sinless. This justification is based on the shed blood of Jesus, “…having been justified by his blood…” (Romans 5:9); where Jesus was crucified, died, buried and rose again.  (1 Cor. 15:1-4) God imputed the righteousness of Christ at the same time our sins were imputed to Christ on the cross. We are justified by faith (Romans 5:1) apart from works of the law. Salvation is by Grace alone, through Faith alone, in Christ alone!

Our Mission

One Way Love Ministries Ministry is the message of Grace. Grace seeks you out when you have nothing to give in return. Jesus had such compassion for those who are lost, lonely, considered failures, and those on the margin of social respectability. Our mission is to do the same. The One Way Love of Christ is our mission in our community.

Rosemary Manint, Secretary

Rosemary“My name is Rosemary, and my heart is to reach out to the broken, those that feel less worthy, or those that have a smile on their faces but dying on the inside. You see I met a man, not a religion, who has healed me from sexual abuse, shame, and trying to be the perfect person so others and God would love me. His name is Jesus. He isn’t concerned with my perfection, what matters to Him is that I trust Him, put my faith in Him, knowing He died for my sins.  It’s a One Way Love that has changed my life, and I live to share this Good News, He is Hope, He is Life, He gives us a new identity, When God looks at us He sees His Son, and we are Holy and Blameless before Him, and it’s all because of the Cross. It’s amazing Grace from a God who doesn’t let go of you, who sees your wounds and hurts and rejoices when you put your faith in Him. My desire is to love all people to Jesus, not judge, but to love them.”

“I have deep compassion for the broken and forgotten. Jesus has healed me greatly and still continues to heal areas in my life. My passion is to point others to a healing God that can do amazing things in a life. It’s not about what we do or don’t do, it’s about a wonderful God that did exceedingly abundantly above all I could ever think in my life. Even in the midst of my sin and not so great times. I want to point people to Jesus who truly isn’t as worried about their sin as He is about loving them. I experienced Gods one way love in my life and I am excited to share what I have found with the world because people aren’t being taught this in our churches today. People are being taught; “Do good, get good. Do bad, get bad.” That couldn’t be further from the truth. It’s never been about us and its always been about Jesus.”
