About Us

1 Way Only is a Christian ministry operated by one family, independently of any congregation or other organization. Because God supplies this family with all that is needed for this ministry, donations are neither requested nor accepted.

The primary purpose of 1 Way Only is to spread the Gospel, through whatever means are available, in the hopes of leading others to salvation through Jesus Christ, as set forth in the scriptures:

18Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." (Matthew 28:18-20 NIV)
Our secondary purpose is to encourage fellow Christians, as set forth in the scriptures:
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. (1 Thessalonians 5:11 NIV)
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. (Hebrews 10:24 NIV)
