REACH RECONCILE RESTORE REPRODUCE
Reaching the lost is the Commission of all who are in Christ Jesus. Though it seems to be a common purpose in all churches; at Hands of Faith, we acknowledge the ability of the Holy Spirit to use us in any and all situations to share the witness of Jesus Christ in our lives (Acts 1:8). Our desire is to see those seeking redemption, forgiveness, love, and an eternal life come to know Christ as their Savior. Our purpose is not to grow our church, rather to increase the kingdom of heaven.
Reconciliation is another biblical standard adopted by the people of Hands of Faith (2 Corinthians 5:18-21). Not only do we desire to see salvation manifested, but to see relationships healed starting first with God the Father. Reconciling differences is a mainstay of our diverse ministry and a foundational principle as to our existence. We pray that God reconcile all to Him as He then reconciles us to those in whom He has entrusted us to love.
Restoration of all brokenness has been a primary thrust of our church. Though we believe that all have sinned and fallen short of living the way God intended, we also believe that we are to edify and build up many who have come to us already fragile and hurt (Ephesians 4:11-14). We believe in helping believers find their purpose in a redeemed life through the work of the Holy Spirit as He ministers to them daily.
Reproduce what God has done through the aspects of reaching, reconciling, and restoring in order that He may continue duplicating from one person to another in fulfillment of our vision. As was the Lord's commission to go a make disciples (Matthew 28:19), we are called to go about our daily living, helping others to see what Christ has done to transform us in order that we have the opportunity to lead them to Christ for the same transforming, life changing experience.
