Mission Statement

We, Family of Faith Worship Center, see a Church that is intensely Kingdom focused. 

The Church that we see is an appealing church of influence. We see a church permeating entire cities, regions, states and countries with explosive Spirit aided movements, a Church hardly able to contain its growth. We see a Church so powerful in its commitment to the Kingdom that cities and nations cannot ignore it. 
The Church that we see has a message so captivating and clear that lives are forever changed; a message beamed to the peoples of the earth through media and multiple technologies. We see a Church with one vision, one message, in thousands of locations. 

The Church that we see is a Church so committed to raising, training and empowering each new generation of leaders that all of our ministries resources are funneled to that end. 
The Church that we see is diversified, agile and responsive, able to function in unity and complexity like the human body; capable of unlimited growth. It is comprised of cells, each aiding and supplying the body’s Kingdom movements. 
We see a Church that is fervently Praying. 
We see a people fervently committed to Christ in prayerful humility; counting the cost and ready to pay any price to see revival and restoration sweep this land. 
The Church we see is on its face before God day and night, having every kind of prayer covering, interceding, calling, training and sending out powerful people of prayer. 
We see gatherings of thousands, stadiums being filled. Praying for and seeing the repentance of cities, officials and government leaders. 

We see a Church where divine miracles and the wonders of God are spoken of, experienced and celebrated. 


Pastor’s Personal Note: 

The saddest thing in the world is people who have eye sight and no vision. Lack of vision or purpose affects many people. Vision is that compelling conviction which determines where you are headed. It is that tangible expression of purpose which ignites your passion for progress. 

I say to you up front, Spiritual vision is a handle on the desires God has for your life. Clear vision provides the ability to walk in the present while picturing where you are headed. Vision allows you to keep the whole forest in mind, while focusing on a single tree. 

The Great Commission, contrary to many people’s thinking, is not just missions’ emphasis, nor is it just a focus upon evangelism. It is a mandate of making disciples—a balance of winning people to Christ, building them in their faith. The Great Commission is the primary work of the church! 

Unless souls are saved, nothing is gain! 

Luke 4:18 

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 

God Bless you and I Hope to see you soon.
