School of Hard Knocks Street Ministry Team is dedicated to the Great commission (Mark 16:15), "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature!"  When the Lord asked, "Lovest thou Me?" to Peter, the only thing he could say back was, "Thou knowest that I love thee," (John 21:16).

He was so hooked on the things of God that he replied on another occasion, "To whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of life." We as a Ministry have none other than the Lord to turn to when it comes to options. Firstly, we feel such a gratitude for our Redemption, for it was through His blood (1 Peter 1:19), His mercy and His truth that we find our joy (Hebrews 12:2), bearing our cross for His name's sake, that we might be partakers in seeing the God of Heaven glorified once and for all (Malachi 1:6)! And secondly, "By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep His commandments," (I John 5:2). There could not be a higher prize than to reach back to God in obedience (by grace, not of works, Ephesians 2:8), by winning His kids, through His Spirit, and uniting them unto Him by Jesus Christ. This is to His glory, and a demonstration of our love unto Him (by the Holy Ghost, Romans 5:5). Our mission goes as follows: "For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost," (Luke 19:10). "And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled," (Luke 14:23). "This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners" (I Timothy 1:15).  And so we partake.
