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
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.

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
telling people what the Lord has done for them, people
what we must do for the Lord. Many people are told that
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
with all the fullness of God. The unconditional love
of God is the key. Actions are a by-product of love,
not the other
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
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

As Partners with Faith Ministries Church International
we covenant together that we will pray for one another and
support one another with faith and love. We determine to
speak only good (James 4:11), and to encourage and build
up our church family (I Thessalonians 5:11). 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.
