OUR MISSION

Restoring this generation to reach the next!

One of our strengths is reaching out to multiple generations - especially young families - exploring together who Jesus is, and being equipped to walk alongside others on that same path with Jesus. A verse we often cite around here summarizes it well, “Our children will also serve him. Future generations will hear about the wonders of the Lord. His righteous acts will be told to those not yet born.” – Ps. 22:30-31

 

OUR STRATEGY

Our 3-fold process to fulfill our mission - how we do ministry around here:  

Worship

Gathering to glorify god

Grow

Becoming followers of Jesus

Go

Loving our community and world

At Faith, we WORSHIP together on Sundays, GROW in groups with others on our journey with Jesus, and GO live missional lives, sharing Jesus' love with our neighbors, near & far.

 

OUR CORE VALUES

Our 6 values which inform why we do what we do:  

TOTAL RELIANCE ON GOD

…demonstrated by depending on God in all we do, believing that without God the best we can do is fail, but with God all things are possible. (Prov. 3:5-6)

HOLY SPIRIT EMPOWERED MINISTRY

…demonstrated by preparing for excellence in ministry, not relying on our own strengths, talents or abilities, but on the Holy Spirit to move in our midst and accomplish His will through us.  (1 Thess. 1:5)

LOVING RELATIONSHIPS

…demonstrated by creating a healthy ‘family’ atmosphere into which others are warmly invited and accepted, where humility, gentleness, & empathy are consistently lived out in a caring community.  (Col. 3:12-16)

COMPASSIONATE RESTORATION

…demonstrated by restoring God’s image and purpose in lives through providing a ‘refuge of hope’ where Christ’s compassion for a broken people is modeled and renewal is experienced.  (Is. 61:1-3)

LIFE TRANSFORMATION

…demonstrated by experiencing continual growth as we become passionate followers of Jesus Christ.  (2 Cor. 3:18)

OUTWARD FOCUS

…demonstrated by intentionally leading others to Christ by focusing our time & resources towards the needs & interests of children, youth, and adults who are outside the church both locally and globally.  (Matt. 18:10-14)

 

OUR PARTNERS

While Faith Fellowship is an autonomous church (meaning we govern our own affairs), we do strongly appreciate the vital partnerships that we have in ministry. Locally, we value partnering with other like-minded churches and ministries in our community for increased impact together.  

 

Regionally and internationally, we value our interdependent connection with a movement of 1300+ gospel-centered churches with which we voluntarily affiliate, known as Converge Worldwide. This group of churches is committed to help strengthen our own church, as well as start new churches together both here in central Wisconsin and around the world. 

 

Over the past decade, our local group of Converge pastors (LEAD Team) has planted several new churches together in Weston, Wausau, Merrill, and Stevens Point. In partnership with Converge, Faith Fellowship is launching a new church plant in Marshfield in 2018-2019 under the leadership of our church planting partner, Casey Schifelbine.
