These values, DNA, and structure describe who we are as a church, and the convictions that have shaped our culture over the years. They communicate who God has called us to be and direction where we're going.
REACHING PEOPLE + BUILDING LIVES
We Live by Faith.
Faith pleases God and is the entry point to finding life in Christ. Often you will hear, “We didn’t name it doubt church!”. We truly believe that through God all things are possible and we want to live out a culture where we encourage one another to take big steps of faith in our everyday lives!
We Are a Spiritual Family.
The Bible makes it clear that God builds through family – both natural and spiritual. God has called all believers to be a part of a healthy spiritual family. Relationships are the currency of God’s Kingdom; this is where we find real value in life. Our church is a family that fights for families. Spiritual family calls us away from mere church membership to deep heart-felt belonging - a belonging to something greater than ourselves.
We Put God First.
Worship is both a lifestyle and a gathering at FC. Our weekly gatherings are essential to the Christ-centered life by giving the opportunity to encounter God with the momentum of our congregation and to spark relationships that grow throughout the week. We serve passionately on Sundays because we know that each service someone is going to be giving God one last chance, which could be their “that” day.
We Love the Bible.
We are driven to know Jesus through scripture. We boldly preach from scripture to every age group. As a family we read God’s Word together daily through S.O.A.P.
We Live Generously.
We value the biblical principle of giving our first fruits to God. We believe generosity transforms our lives as Christ followers. Through giving we affirm our commitment to the ongoing purpose of Faith Church: helping people discover the Christ-centered life! As we continue to generously give with our time, talent, and our resources, we believe we'll experience the joy of seeing God transform lives. As a church we are honest, transparent, and accountable in our financial stewardship and strive to lead in the call to live generously.
The word Theology simply means to “study about God”. Our hope is that each believer desires to do this with passion. We affirm these doctrines in our church, not to bring division, but clarity to what each Christian should believe and search out for themselves. We also affirm that every line of scripture radically points to Jesus Christ and His work in our lives, this should be the filter in which all scripture is read and studied.
We believe the leadership structure of an organization is very important—it's more than administration—because strategic structures provide the best opportunity for an organization to be healthy. Our structure was not an afterthought—it was the result of a great deal of Biblical examination, due diligence and prayerful consideration.
Our staff of Faith Church serve the congregation and are responsible to develop the spiritual life of the church. Under the supervision of our lead team, our staff equips the congregation and oversees the day-to-day ministry and operations.
This process is directed and supported by our team of local elders and our apostolic overseers, working in conjunction with our lead team, to guide and evaluate the ongoing strategic mission of Faith Church.
