OUR FOCUS:

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” | Matthew 28:19-20

Our Mission: Faith Church Miami is committed to... •

Making Disciples: We are resolved to proclaiming the truth of the Gospel. We do this by cultivating relationships in Miami and pointing them to Jesus Christ as the only means of salvation. “Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples!” | Psalm 96:2



Maturing Disciples: We are committed to deliberate discipleship that points others towards maturing in Christlikeness. We accomplish this through faithful exposition of the Word, which is able to create maturity in the Christian and foster healthy leadership. “Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ.” | Colossians 1:28



Mobilizing Disciples: We desire to make, mature, and multiply disciples of Christ who will do likewise in their local communities or who will go out to plant a new church. “Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.” | 2 Cor. 5:20

Faith Church is a family of redeemed sinners saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone. We are a people regenerated by the power of God’s Word and work of the Holy Spirit. At Faith Church our focus and delight is to glorify God by making, maturing, and mobilizing disciples of Jesus Christ.

WHAT WE BELIEVE... Our Name:

We are a local church made up of those transformed, by the grace of God, through faith in Christ alone. Our resolve is to make much of our Savior Jesus Christ and to reflect his love to the people of Miami. We desire that many in Miami would, by grace through faith, be saved and glorify God with their lives. Therefore, we are called Faith Church Miami.

• Scripture: We have a high view of the Bible and want it to shape our ministry and motives.

• Sovereign God: We rest in God’s divine purposes and are free from manipulative practices.

• Gospel: We are confident that Jesus Christ saves sinners and transforms their lives.

• Complementarian: We see God’s wisdom in making men and women equal in personhood but different in roles in the church and in the home.

• Missional: We love people and intend to pursue them for the honor of Jesus Christ.

INVITATION Our passion is to reach the people of Miami, with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The gospel not only saves souls but it changes the local community in which they live. We are delighted to extend the invitation to you to join us in the work of spreading the gospel to those in Miami. Consider getting involved in one or more of the four following ways…

Promote: We encourage you to share and talk about the work of God in Miami as the Gospel is being proclaimed. Invite others to pray for us and for others to be encouraged as God Word is being shared with the lost. Partner: Our first year’s budget is $200,000 with increasing costs in the early years. Due to the difficulties associated with planting in Miami, we are looking for partners for the first 5 years. All donations are tax-deductible and can be done online at www.gracechurch.miami. (select from the drop down box: “Church Planter - Trevor Doles” as Grace Church manages all current donations) Pray: We send out news letters via email. Stay tuned to those Newsletters for up to date prayer requests and to hear how your prayers are impacting Miami. Participate: We believe some people are being called by God to step out in faith and join us in this gospel-advancing endeavor. While it is not without its sacrifices, it also comes with great joy as one gets to be on the front lines of seeing what God is doing in saving and sanctifying sinners for their good and his glory.
