Our Manifesto

 
At Faith Church we are bringing faith to life. We are committed to fulfilling Jesus’ mission to love God and love others – it’s faith put to action. We want to connect faith to life in the city of Fort Scott and in every surrounding city. Jesus is the center of our focus and we want to live out our faith in every endeavor, conversation, and place we go. We strive toward generosity and gratitude as we desire to be spirit-led in everything. We choose a faith that is committed rather than casual so we always contribute more than we consume. We are faith-filled in our pursuit of our mission, allowing God’s Word to shape our worldview and priorities. We choose to focus on a few priorities, making them excellent rather becoming distracted by many good things. Our priorities are: creating life-giving services, partnering in outreach both globally and locally, engaging in life-building connect groups, and creating irresistible kids environments at every level. We believe unity releases God’s blessing so we remain humble in our choice to give honor to others. No matter if you are far from faith, familiar with faith in Jesus, or have just fallen away – you belong here. Welcome to the faith journey; we believe you’ll find life.
 
 

Our Beliefs

 

The Bible

We believe the Bible is God’s perfect work and is fully applicable in every situation that we face in life. The Word is our final authority and our success in life is dependent on it. (Psalm 119:160, Hebrews 4:12)

 

Salvation

Salvation is not earned but is a gift to everyone who chooses to acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord. (John 3:16, Revelation 20:15)

 

God’s Will

God’s will for our lives as believers is to become whole and successful in every area of life. The full meaning of the word salvation is to be complete and lacking nothing: spiritually, mentally, physically or financially. (Ephesians 2:8, 2 Corinthians 5:17-21, Philippians 4:7-8, 1 Peter 2:24, 2 Corinthians 9:6-10)

 

God’s Image

We know that every man and woman was created in God’s image, but because of sin in the world, we have been separated from God. The hope that we have is reconciliation through Jesus Christ, the Son of God. (Genesis 1:27, Romans 5:11-12, Romans 3:23)

 

Baptism

Water Baptism is a vital step for anyone who has surrendered their life to Jesus as their Lord. Water Baptism is an outward demonstration of their inward comittment of faith, identifying them as a disciple. Baptism into Christ (Salvation) is a prerequisite for a person before they are water baptized. (Galatians 3:27, Matthew 28:19)

 

The Trinity

There is only one God, the creator of heaven and earth, and He exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:27)

 

The Holy Spirit

The baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift that is available to anyone who has received Jesus Christ as Lord. The fruit, gifts, & language (tongues) of the Spirit are benefits that someone receives when asking Jesus to baptize in the Holy Spirit. (Mark 1:7-12, Luke 11:13, Acts 1:8, Psalm 119:160, Hebrews 4:12, 1 Corinthians 12-14, Galatians 5:22-23)
