The Union Gospel Mission Sacramento is a local mission in the heart of California’s capital. We are a Union of Christians from various backgrounds and churches who have come together to get the gospel of Jesus Christ to the population we serve. We are also Union because we have diverse churches and groups serving the Mission in various ways. The churches and groups all agree on essential matters about the gospel and the Christian faith to have one voice for our population. 

We are Gospel-centered, gospel-focused, and gospel motivated. Christ, through us, meets the needs of the people we are privileged to serve. We love them because he first loved us. 

We are on Mission. We are an extension of the church to the world in obedience to the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20), the Great Commandment (Mark 12:29-30), and the Great Confession (Matt. 16:15-16). Our primary goal is to preach the gospel of Jesus, disciple those called, and send them back into society and a local church for ongoing service and care. Our secondary goal is to care for the needs of the population we serve by feeding the hungry, clothing and housing, and serving the people around our mission through various acts of compassion, mercy, and charity.

Along with providing a 10-month intensive in-house drug and alcohol New Life Program for men, the Mission distributes clothing, toiletries, and food boxes annually to seniors, women, and children. In addition to the thousands of meals served at UGM every month, the Mission is active in the community, supplying more than 440 food boxes to families unable to feed their children adequately and giving away 300 holiday food boxes with all the trimmings.

Every person who knocks at our door has a story. We take the time to listen, comfort, give advice, and counsel through the hope and saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Some of these wanderers have lost their way and genuinely seek a second chance. We believe this is the house of new beginnings, where our most desperate neighbors can find refuge.

Over the years, we have been blessed by committed volunteers, inspired leadership, and the support of many in our community. Some of their stories appear below.
