Mission Statement

We believe that people and relationship are the keys to effective Christian life and ministry; therefore, we allow these to be our focus in all that we do through Faith Ministries Church International. All of our ministries and functions are designed to enhance the forming of strong productive relationships and developing leaders in the Body of Christ whose primary desire is ministering to the needs of people and reproducing godly fruit in others.

We desire to be a place you can call home! A safe place where people love you unconditionally, a healthy place where you can grow spiritually, and a family you can team up with in reaching out to our community and the world.

A safe place where people love you unconditionally - Through our Partnership and involvement in Home Uplift Groups (HUGs), we provide a safe place to practice our gifts and unite our hearts and lives together for the purpose of building up the Body of Christ, helping to meet one another’s needs, and extending ourselves in a focused manner to reach the world.

A healthy place where you can grow spiritually - Through training classes and Home Uplift Groups we have a place where we can process God’s Word and become equipped to live victorious, scripture-based lives and to reach out to those around us in love.

A family you can team up with in reaching out to our community and the world - Through our Ministry and Leadership Training Courses, Home Uplift Groups and other ministries and outreaches, we work together as a team to release our gifts and callings to reach our own church body, our neighborhoods, our city, our nation and the world.

We are more than just a church for families. While we do provide training for each member of every family, we also see ourselves as one family—the Family of God. As brothers and sisters in the Lord we have a responsibility to one another to walk in love, acceptance and forgiveness, and to see to it that each other’s needs are met.

Our primary directive is to "equip believers for the work of the ministry." We believe that every believer is a minister—not just a select few or a "professional" clergy. Our ministries, functions, training, Home Uplift Groups, celebration services and special meetings are designed with this in mind.

To reach the world for Jesus Christ: This is the purpose of being trained—not just that our needs would be met and that we would be blessed, but that the Great Commission would be fulfilled. We desire well-equipped, anointed believers to be released into their world to make a difference.

God Loves You!

We want you to have an absolute assurance that God loves you. He loves you right now, independent of any worth of your own. It’s an unconditional love, not based on your performance.

God’s love for you is based on Him being Love (1 John 4:8), not on your being lovable. That’s wonderful news that most Christians and people in the world have not heard. Most people think that they have to do something to earn God’s favor; therefore, not many people have much hope of ever measuring up.

The gospel, as it is commonly presented today, actually drives people away from the Lord. Instead of telling people what the Lord has done for them, people preach about what we must do for the Lord. Many people are told that God’s acceptance and favor are conditional, based on them measuring up to His standard. This is not the truth. God’s true nature and love have not been accurately portrayed.

The only thing that God demands of us is faith in the atoning work of Jesus Christ. This evokes such a response of love from us that the rest of the Christian life is nothing but a response to what Christ has done for us. Paul shocked the religious people of his day by proclaiming justification apart from performance.

Our love for God compels us to live holier accidentally than we ever did on purpose. Love is a greater motivator than fear of punishment or rejection. It is commonly preached that God withdraws from us when we do wrong, and draws closer as we do better. That is just another way of saying that He gives us what we deserve.

Romans 11:6 says that it’s either all grace or all works, but not a mixture of the two. We are either acceptable to God based on what we do or on what our Lord Jesus Christ did for us, not a combination of the two. It has to be one way or the other.

We need to receive wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of what we have in Christ. We have already been given everything in Christ. It’s just a matter of believing and receiving, not working and earning.

We are saved by grace through faith and not of ourselves. Experiencing the love of God will fill us completely with all the fullness of God. The unconditional love of God is the key. Actions are a by-product of love, not the other way around.

We don’t promote ungodly living. We promote a relationship with the Lord independent of our worthiness. Once an individual comes into relationship with the Lord by faith alone, it becomes the nature of that person to live holy, as love becomes the motivator. In the book of Ephesians, Paul exhorts them to live holy, but from the positive motivation of love instead of the negative motivation of punishment.

It is only when we find our identities in what Jesus has done for us, and not in what we do for Him, that we can experience "joy unspeakable and full of glory."

We have already been made worthy to partake of the inheritance Christ bought for us. We’ve already been placed in Christ’s kingdom and are heirs to all His benefits. Understanding this is the foundation of faith. All the deception that the enemy uses against us violates this fundamental principle. Understanding our completeness in Christ as a total work of grace voids the power of the devil. The only real power the devil ever had against us was our sins. They have been dealt with through the atoning work of Christ.

We are already seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. We aren’t headed towards victory. We are coming from a victory: Christ's total victory over the devil.

We will bear one another’s burdens (Galatians 6:2), serve one another (Galatians 5:13), and fellowship with one another (I John 1:7). We will maintain a spirit of unity; there will be no division among us; we are perfectly joined together in the same mind (I Corinthians 1:10). We will work together for the cause of Christ and in fulfillment of the Great Commission, allowing our gifts, talents, and lives to be used to the glory of God.
