The Heaven’s Saints Motorcycle Ministry provides a Christian brotherhood of bikers to fellowship with and minister alongside. While the majority of members are bikers, owning a motorcycle is not a requirement to be a part of this ministry. Heaven’s Saints members can be found all over the U.S. and in some parts of Canada. Chapters are formed once there are seven members in an area. Members of local chapters work together to reach out to others in their community. Each chapter prayerfully considers how they can best direct their efforts to provide help and assistance to those in need. We have chapters involved in many areas of ministry including prison ministry, youth outreach, youth detention centers, homeless shelters, drug and alcohol rehab churches, rallies, biker events, etc. Chapters work together by supporting each other and helping one another with their various outreaches, and also by working together on larger national rallies. The Heaven’s Saints M/M established the Church of the Heaven’s Saints to further their ministry capabilities. We are not a motorcycle club. It is not our desire to control any specific state, city, or location. It is, however our desire to assist those in need in whatever way we can. Our ultimate bylaws are the Bible. We will do our best to guide others into a personal relationship with God and His Son, Jesus. We believe that Jesus is the answer to ANY problems you might be facing. We are always glad to pray for and with others.
Why we wear the Christian Flag
Heaven’s Saints didn’t always wear the Christian Flag on their backs. Previously, we wore a full-size Heaven’s Saints patch on our backs. While ministering at Daytona Beach Bike Week, the Lord gave Barry Mayson the vision of wearing the Christian Flag on our backs and placing our small (then our support patch) in the lower right hand corner. This meant cutting off the Heaven’s Saints Armour of the Lord patch that God had given him so many years before. It was hard, VERY HARD, but he did it right then and there under the ministry tent in Daytona Beach, Florida. Not only did the Lord show him that the Heaven’s Saints should do this; but Barry felt led to urge other Christian motorcycle ministries do the same – wear the Christian Flag on their back with their ministry identification in the lower right hand corner. The scripture the Lord gave Barry is found in John 3:30 “He must increase, but we must decrease”. Many Heaven’s Saints then and in the months following received the vision with understanding and followed in wearing the Christian Flag. Others ended up leaving the Heaven’s Saints ministry because they didn’t like the change. Not only did we receive criticism from our own members, but members and especially leaders of other ministries accused the Heaven’s Saints of various things, one of which was trying to absorb all of the other Christian ministries into one big ministry run by Barry! Well, here we are, years later, and we have brothers and sisters in other ministries who also wear the Christian Flag who are what we call “covenant” with us and us with them. It has worked to unite us and yet to keep the individual ministries as the members want them. Since the Christian flag belongs to no one, anyone can wear it without necessarily belonging to any ministry, association, club, organization, or incorporation.
