“Equipping a Community to Impact the World”

“Equipping a Community to Impact the World”

We Do This By: IOU

“Growing Inward”: We believe that discipleship happens in our small groups. At Faith Center we have more than 30 groups which meet throughout the week at various locations.  Join one or more connect groups to grow, pray, and study the Word together.

“Going Outward”: We believe faith should be shared with community and the world.  We live a lifestyle of service that includes evangelism and missions locally and abroad.

“Going Upward”:  We believe in a lifestyle of worshipping Christ in all we think, say and do. This is done both corporately and alone with Jesus.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

-2 Corinthians 5:17
