About Us

IJNMMLV is a mobile medical clinic that partners with local churches in the greater Las Vegas Community one Saturday each month, to provide free medical services to the community. There is no charge and all services are provided on a volunteer basis by medical and non-medical personnel who want to give back to the community.

Our History

The In Jesus Name Medical Ministry was founded by Dr. Scott Southard in the Reno Nevada area more than twelve (12) years ago and has since facilitated close to 140 clinics with partner Churches such as yours.  Dr. Southard has a vision to expand this ministry to as many cities as possible in the United States.  Las Vegas is the second location and we facilitated our first clinic on March 30th, 2019. All of the medical and administrative personnel leading the Ministry are volunteers who are professing Christians and have dedicated their lives to serving the Lord and using their God given gifts in accordance with the words of Jesus in Matthew 25:40.

We Believe

In Jesus Name Medical Ministry bases all of its activities on the following statements of faith:

  • We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God.
    (II Timothy 3:15-17)

  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in 3 persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  (Matthew 28:19; Ephesians 4:4-6)

  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory.  (John 1:1-4; Matthew 1:23; Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 1:1-4 and 4:50; Acts 1:11; and 2:24; I Corinthians 15:3-4)

  • We believe that, for the salvation of lost and sinful men, repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ results in regeneration by the Holy Spirit and that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation.  (Titus 3:4-7; Luke 24:46-47; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6; Acts 4: 12)

  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, whose indwelling enables the Christian to live a Godly life.  (Galatians 5:16-18; Romans 8:9)

  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation and eternal punishment.  (Revelation 20:11-15; I Corinthians 15:51-57)

  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church.  (Ephesians 1:22-23; I Corinthians 12:12-27)

  • We believe that the ministry of evangelism is a responsibility of both the church and each Christian (Romans 10:9-15; Acts 1:8; Matthew 28:18-20; I Peter 3:15)

  • We believe that God loves each and every person created and desires each and every person to come to know Him.  We believe that God desires all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth.  We believe salvation is available to anyone and is acquired by faith in Jesus Christ.
    (I Timothy 2:4; John 3:16; I John 2:2; Titus 2:11-13; Mark 16:15; Luke 6:27; Romans 10:12; Philippians 1:13; II Timothy 2:21; Romans 10:10; John 1:7-8; John 1:9)

  • We believe that marriage is between one man and one women and that any other civil union, religious or other type of union, where-in sexual intimacy is involved, is immoral and is wrong and is in opposition to God’s will and should not be approved of or pursued.  (Genesis 2:24; Hebrews 13:4; Mark 10:9; I Corinthians 6:9-10)

  • We believe God recognizes human life as existing in the womb and that He is the creator and giver of such life.  We believe that any mechanical, chemical or otherwise deliberate premature termination of such life is contrary to God’s will and is not to be approved of or pursued.  (Isaiah 44:2; Psalm 139:13-14; Luke 1:41-42, 44; Matthew 1:18)
