About

Hands of Hope is an outreach-oriented ministry that seeks to serve the city of Santa Ana. We believe that our faith ought to be lived out. It is our hope to bring the good news of the gospel to our community.

Hands of Hope is actually an umbrella-ministry that opens up to purpose and service-specific groups. There are a total of seven ministries that operate under Hands of Hope:  One Step To Freedom Discipleship and Support Groups, Red Wagon Ministry, Released Time Christian Education, Kids’ Good News Club, Refuge Jr. High Bible Club, Bread of Life, and Jail Ministries. We would love to have you get involved with any of these ministries!

One of the main features of this website is that it is designed to be used as an addiction recovery ministry. If you are interested in an addiction program based on the principles of Scripture, please view the videos and the accompanying homework for each study. Also check our Resources page for a list of organizations that help people struggling with any addiction in Orange County.

There are 50 Bible studies. We are still in the process of uploading the videos, but the Bible study curriculum is complete and ready to use. The Bible Study is divided into 7 chapters, and is geared to assist anyone in learning what God has to say about addictions in the Bible.

ONE STEP TO FREEDOM HAS ONE GOAL… TO SET PEOPLE FREE FROM THEIR ADDICTIONS.

The purpose One Step is more than just merely freeing a person from their dependency on drugs, alcohol or other addictive behaviors. It is to bring people into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ and to help them become spiritually healthy disciples of Jesus.

To do this One Step to Freedom meets on Tuesday and Friday nights at Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa for a Bible study and fellowship. We also want to share the One Step curriculum with other ministries.
