Who We Are
Every local Christian church has its distinctives - the practices or beliefs that make it different from other churches. Sometimes this is confusing to people. They ask, "Why are there so many different churches or denominations?" They may think of this as division, yet in most cases it is more accurately called diversity.
Pastor and author Rick Warren said that there are different kinds of churches for different kinds of people. Every denomination and every local church is unique. And we believe that when you step back and look at the Church as a whole, you get a fuller, clearer picture of the depth and breadth of what the Bible calls 'the Body of Christ'.
We are even optimistic enough to believe that with all this diversity in belief and practice, most Christian churches still agree on 90-95% of Christian teaching, and the other 5-10% we do not agree on falls into this category of "distinctives".
At Faith Church, we strive to focus on those 90-95% of things that most followers of Jesus Christ agree on. However, we are proud to be a part of a large cluster of churches called The Wesleyan Church. At our core we are still simply a Christian church (made up of people from many different churched or unchurched backgrounds). However, for those who may want to know, we'd like to answer the question, "What in the world is a Wesleyan?"
At the core, we are a warm and friendly group of people who try, with God's help, to live the kind of life that brings honor to Him. We look to the Bible as our primary source for direction in our worship and our lifestyles.
We laugh, rejoice and grieve together, grow together and walk in faith together. We aim to be a family for all who follow Jesus or desire to know more about Him. We want you to know there is always room for you at Faith Church.
As part of The Wesleyan Church (a Bible-believing network of outreach-minded churches) we adhere to orthodox positions regarding the nature of God, Christ, the Trinity and Christ's birth, death, resurrection, ascension, and imminent return.
We are confident in the Bible as the written Word of God. We believe that personal faith in Jesus Christ is our only hope for salvation. We look to Jesus Christ and the Bible as our example for life. We believe that we need each other for effective spiritual growth, encouragement, and maturity in our daily Christian walk.
Here are some core beliefs:
At Faith Church, we exist to give ourselves away so others will know Jesus! It is our hope that we can come along side you in your journey and that together, our lives will be forever changed by our amazing God!
