Who Are We?

FAITH CHURCH above all else wants to glorify God by approaching the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as He has revealed Himself in Scripture.

We come together each week on Sunday mornings to meet with the True and Living God. We expect God to speak to us through His Word preached and visualized in the sacraments. We respond to who He is and what He has done through music, prayer, stewardship and fellowship.


What Are We Like?

Upon visiting, you can expect Faith Church to be:
  • Welcoming and Caring
  • Hospitable and Inviting
  • Family-friendly
  • Biblical and God-centered
  • Multi-generational


What Do We Value In Worship?

Spirit and Truth

We seek to be the worshipers the Father is seeking who declare Christ's unfailing worth “in spirit and in truth.” As we delight in God through Christ and invite others to do the same, our hearts swell with uncontainable affections.

Richness and Simplicity

Because of the greatness of God's glory and our submission to one another out of reverence for Christ, we gather united in the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Learning and borrowing from where we've been, we seek to inspire coming generations with structure and creativity.

Gathered and Sent

True worship is much greater than Sunday morning gatherings—for it involves our whole lives, but it doesn't exist without Sundays. As we gather each week and Christ grows in our hearts, we are continually being transformed by the gospel in anticipation of eternity in heaven. Along the way, we are compelled by His love to further and more fully participate in serving God's family and His mission of reaching lost people.


Whole Family Community Outreach

Every quarter, our Children's Ministry hosts outreach gatherings for the whole family.

Some of our favorite memories and connections are built as we intentionally love and serve the families of our city with the good news of new life in Jesus Christ.

 


Mission Statement

Our MISSION is to grow fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

Our HALLMARK is understanding that each person matters to God.
