• Vision

    We see Faith City as a large, growing church of different nations, cultures, ages, abilities, and walks of life united in Christ; finding hope and purpose in the gospel.

    Faith City is where the felt needs of our community can be met and a welcoming place for the community to meet.

    We see the city, region, and nation experiencing God's presence expressed through an inspired arts culture.

    At the center of it all, we see people transformed by the love and power of God through discipleship.

  • Mission

    At Faith City Church our mission is to holistically engage people with the gospel; equipping and empowering each other to live it out in our worlds. This is discipleship. It is who we are. It is what we do.

  • Values

    1. All People, All Ways. (John 4; Colossians 3:9-11) 🤝

    Jesus saw potential in everyone; so do we. He didn’t play favorites and we don’t either. We strive to help everyone make meaningful connections in our faith community and we work to serve them in all ways with the best we have.

    2. We are Christians First. (2 Corinthians 5:17; Philippians 2:10) ☝️

    We are Christians first; all other influences and our humanity submit to Jesus Christ because our identity is found in Him.

    3. Discipleship is Not Optional. (Matthew 28:19-20) 🙅

    Discipleship is not a class, it is not a program, and it is not only for new believers. Discipleship is the strategy for growing in God modeled by Jesus. It is life-long and the responsibility of all followers of Christ to be discipled and to disciple others. So, who are you discipling? Who is discipling you?

    4. Empowered Leaders. (Philippians 3:13-14; 4:13; Ephesians 1:15-23) 💪

    We believe the gospel is about releasing us in freedom rather than restricting us in legalism. We strive to empower leaders by releasing them to the bigness of their God-given purpose rather than restricting them to small dreams, and small influence.

    5. Always Learning. (Proverbs 1:5; 18:15; 2 Timothy 3:7) 🧠

    Jesus taught and others learned. Those who learned from Jesus taught others and they too learned. There is no way to lead in God’s kingdom without learning. We strive to be a learning Church with sound Biblical teaching that embraces trying and failing as part of progress. Have you failed lately? 

    6. Creative Everything. (Ephesians 2:10) 🎨

    God is the ultimate Creator. He made us in His image and He made the universe glorious. We try to reflect His creative nature in everything we do.

    7. Worship More. (John 4:24; Romans 12:1-2) 🙌

    Worship is never over. There is always more we can give; more we can express in singing and prayer; more artistry and words to be offered; more ways to serve God and love others. We worship God in every way we can and every time we can. We will never stop!

    8. Experiencing God. (Exodus 33:14; Hebrews 10:20) 🕊️

    We want to experience God and not just know Him. To do this we make room for His presence. It brings freedom, life, transformation, and out of this world (supernatural) power into our lives. Knowledge is important but so is experience.

    9. He Leads, We Follow. (Galatians 5:18; Acts 13:4; Mark 1:12) 👉

    The Holy Spirit leads the Church – not us. We follow Him and do our best to bring others along. He makes us fruitful, gives us abilities (gifts), and empowers our expression of Christ’s love in word and action.

    10. Missional is the Main Thing. (Mark 16:15; James 1:27) 🌎

    Keeping the main thing means loving others as Jesus did. It is bigger than ourselves so we are globally minded and regionally focused to bring the gospel of Jesus to the heart of our city and world.

  • Anti-Racism Statement

    At Faith City Church we unequivocally stand against racism. The gospel of Jesus Christ is a message of hope and inclusion for all people everywhere. We are committed to being anti-racist and following the example of Christ in loving and serving all.

    We understand racism shows itself in many forms and we stand against it in all forms.

    Racism, which is seen as any conduct or comment which causes humiliation to an employee, volunteer, or any member of our community because of their racial or ethnic background, colour, place of birth, citizenship, or ancestry; will not be tolerated.

    Examples of conduct that may be racial or ethnic harassment include (but are not limited to):

    - Unwelcome remarks, jokes, or innuendos about a person’s racial or ethnic origin, colour, place of birth, citizenship, or ancestry.

    - Displaying racist or derogatory pictures or other offensive material.

    - Insulting gestures or practical jokes based on racial or ethnic grounds which create awkwardness or embarrassment.

    - Refusing to speak to or work with someone or treating someone differently because of their ethnic or racial background.

    Faith City Church is intent on being engaged in the ministry of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:16-21). This involves listening and being solution-oriented when addressing racism in our church, our city, and beyond. Together, by God’s grace, we can build a stronger, healthier society for future generations regardless of race or ethnic origin.

  • Jesus Christ

    Jesus Christ is at the center of everything. We believe that Jesus is the only one who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life. We believe that Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.

  • The Trinity

    We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.

  • The Bible

    We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives.

  • Salvation

    Because Jesus paid the ultimate price for our sins when He died on the cross, anyone who asks for forgiveness of their sins can receive it. He paid the price, so salvation is free for those who recognize and confess that Jesus is Lord. Anyone who repents and believes in Jesus is given the gift of eternal life.

  • Baptism of the Holy Spirit

    We believe the baptism of the Holy Spirit is still available for the church today – just as we read about in Acts 2:4. This Spirit baptism empowers and equips believers to continue the ministry of Jesus with boldness and authority. Operating in spiritual gifts helps to point people towards a clearer understanding of God.

  • Water Baptism

    Water Baptism is a public statement to others that you are choosing to let your old life go and allowing God to make you new. It is a symbolic and obedient act that an individual chooses when they are old enough to make their own decisions. They have buried their old life and have been born again.
