Faith is a Great Church because of its friendly people and the quality ministries we provide for everyone.
We believe a great church offers more than great music, great preaching and even great ministries. We believe a great church offers friendships and relationships through a caring community of believers. In fact, our goal is not to become a big church, but a community of Faith, where everyone enjoys its benefits and everyone contributes to its greatness.
Faith is a Great Church because of its diversity.
Currently over 35 different nationalities are represented by those who attend Faith on a regular basis. But our diversity doesn't stop there. The diversity of Faith includes economic, educational and other demographic diversity. However, regardless of our diversity, we are brought together by one common element - Jesus Christ. It doesn't matter who you are and where you have come from, getting to heaven begins at the foot of the cross for everyone.
Faith has a Bold Vision of not just "sharing Jesus," but "showing Jesus" through their various ministries and compassion outreaches.
Every ministry is designed with a goal to not only minister to those who have already come to know Jesus, but to appeal to those who are coming to know Him. The compassion outreach ministries of Faith are designed to impact believers through giving and serving others, as well as those coming know Jesus by experiencing a genuine expression of God's love through the tangible resources relevant ministry they receive.
At the core of Faith's Bold Vision is a ministry called IMPACT 5000.
This vision exists to impact the lives of 5,000 different people on a regular basis through various ministries of worship, discispleship, fellowship, compassion evangelism and media ministries. In addition to our ministries that serve the individuals and families that are a part of our fellowship, IMPACT 5000 ministries serve those who are beyond our four walls through a weekly food and clothing ministry, a ministry to widows and shut-ins, institutional ministries (prison, jail, juvenile hall) and our annual outreaches like "Feeding 5000 and More" and "Christmas Compassion" where hundreds of children and their families are blessed with food packages, school supplies and Christmas toys.
The Bold Vision of Faith includes our weekly television ministry "Discover Faith" and our various USA and Global Missions Projects and Teams.
"Discover Faith" is our weekly television ministry that features the teaching ministry of Pastor Bates. Currently "Discover Faith" airs at the following times:
Sunday on KSBI 52/Cox 9 at 2:30 a.m.; 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m.
