About Us  

Hands for Jesus, Inc., is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization. All of our finances come from tithes and offerings.  The tithes and offerings we receive are according to Bible principles, whereby we only receive that which is given "willingly from a willing heart" (Ex. 25:2; 35:5,21,22,29; 2 Cor. 8:12; 9:7).

We do not raise money by sending out letters or use any other means, asking anyone to give to us. God is our source for all that we have need of. God is faithful and has provided all that we have need of since the beginning in 1984 until now (January 2008).

Hands for Jesus, Inc., had it’s beginning in 1981, when the LORD revealed it to Merle E. Koepke that he was called into the ministry. In 1982-1984, Merle attended Bible School, graduated and was ordained into the ministry.

In 1984, along with two other individuals, application was made, accepted, and registered in the State of Wisconsin, of the United States of America as a Non-profit 501 (c) (3) status.  In 1989 the name was changed to Hands For Jesus, Inc.

As a teacher in the body of Christ, Merle E. Koepke has written many books, booklets, and tracts. With the help of Hands for Christ, many of his teachings, books and tracts have gone into third-world countries. As a result many have come to the LORD, and received Him.

In 2002 Hands for Jesus, Inc., began reaching out to the world by way of the Internet. We now have two Web sites in operation, reaching into many Countries and homes of those who are searching for the true love of God and desire to mature in Christ. We have evidence of hundreds of Bible Schools, Churches, Pastors, and individuals who have freely received our books and teachings all over the world. (All our books and materials are free by downloading from the Internet). For this we thank the LORD who is faithful to supply all our needs.

The primary purpose for Hands For Jesus is helping others to come to the knowledge of our LORD Jesus Christ, receive Him as their LORD and Savior. Then mature within the body of Christ; that they do not remain as babies in Christ (1 Cor. 3:1-3). But that they do mature in the LORD, no longer living only on the milk of the Word but on the strong meat of the Word (Heb. 5:12-14). That they are no longer “tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine” (Eph. 4:14).

The LORD is looking for those who will put their hands to the plough and not turn back (Luke 9:62). Our position is to help those who desire to do the will of God in their lives. Besides the Church operations, Hands For Jesus, Inc. has Bible Teachings available to anyone who is interested.

A Teaching Ministry  

 “For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ” (Eph. 4:12 KJV).

Jesus said, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations . . .”  (Matt. 28:19 RSV)

How To Be Born Again !!

If you are not positive that you are born again, ask the LORD to come into your life and be your LORD and Savior. Pray out loud the following prayer, believing in your heart that Jesus will answer:

LORD Jesus, I believe You are the Son of God. I believe You died for me, and took away all my sins that I can come to You and Your Father, knowing I will be received into the family of God.

LORD Jesus, forgive me of all that I have done that is not pleasing to God. Wash me clean from all my past, my sins, my iniquities and all that is not pleasing to God.

LORD Jesus, I now receive You as my LORD and Savior, and I will do my best to serve You all the days of my life. Thank You Jesus for receiving me into the family of God. Amen.

Now, daily confess your known sins and turn away from anything that is not pleasing to God. Study the Bible, Believe the Word of God, and pray always to the Father and to Jesus about everything in your life. God loves you, and will help you in every need, whatsoever you ask, He will hear your prayer.

Learn to walk by faith and not by sight (2 Cor. 5:7). For “the just shall live by faith” (Rom. 1:17, Gal. 3:11, Heb. 10:38).
