FAMILY OF FAITH
Family of Faith is called to be an Apostolic Sending Center. We believe that everyone has a purpose and a destiny. We are equipping leaders to go out into their community, into their mountain of influence to be the person God has called them to be.
We are establishing a culture of family that loves, honors, and values all! We are commissioned to bring the love and power of Jesus to our community and to the nations.
We are witnessing greater healings, miracles, signs, and wonders. It has been prophesied that FFCC is a flagship church, leading others to embrace the fullness of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God.
Where We Come From
Family of Faith was established in 1960 inside the home of Pastor Warren and Nancy Way. Together with a few close friends, they started Christian Fellowship.
Through the years they moved to several locations around the Newark area. In 1989, Christian Fellowship purchased the building that we are in currently. The name of the church changed in the 90's to Family of Faith Community Church.
Our name says it all; we are all about family, faith, and community!
We honor all of our past leaders who have prayed, established, and poured into this ministry! God has truly blessed us and we cannot wait to see what He does next!
Where We are Headed
God certainly has a plan for Family of Faith! Through many prophecies, it has been recorded that we are called to be a flagship in our community, an Apostolic Sending Center, meaning that we are to equip leaders to go out into their area of influence to be what God has created them to be!
Jesus told us to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)
Our top priority is to bring people into the Kingdom of God! We want them to know who they are in Christ and that they have a divine purpose and destiny!
What We Believe
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and the revealed will of God.
II Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Peter 1:23-25
There is one true Godhead comprised of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. All are co-equal and co-eternal. Jesus Christ is God manifest in human flesh, born of the Virgin Mary through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Isaiah 7:14; Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 1:18; Matthew 28:19; John 1:1, 14; 1 John 5:7
Man was created in God’s image. By voluntary transgression, he fell. His only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ.
Genesis 1:26-31; Genesis 3:17; Romans 5:12-21
SALVATION OF MAN
Redemption is for anyone who has faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ as the payment for his or her sin.
Romans 3:24; Romans 10:8-10; Ephesians 2:8
The inward evidence to the believer is the direct witness of the human spirit that one is born again of God. The outward evidence to all men is a life of true holiness and love.
Romans 8:16; John 3:3; John 13:35; 1 John 3:23
Salvation is by repentance from sin and dead works, and by faith in Jesus Christ, not by human works. Our good works after salvation are evidence of our faith and will determine our rewards in eternity.
Romans 14:10-12; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5-7; James 2:18
The Baptism by the Holy Spirit into the body of Christ at the new birth.
I Corinthians 12:13; Galatians 3:27
Water baptism is by immersion, is a direct commandment of our Lord, and is for believers only. It is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.
Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:12; Acts 8:36-39
The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is an experience that is subsequent to and distinct from the new birth whereby a Christian is filled with the Holy Spirit and endued with power for life, service, and the bestowment of gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry. Jesus said this infilling is the promise of the Father and a free gift to all who ask for it in faith.
Luke 11:13; Acts 1:4-8, 2:4; 1 Corinthians 14:4
The church is comprised of all true born-again Christians throughout the world. They are to meet regularly in local groups under the guidance and care of pastors. The church is also called the Body of Christ; with each Christian is an integral part of that Body. The church is commissioned by Christ to carry the Gospel to all nations, with the promise of signs following.
Romans 12:6-8; 1 Corinthians 12:12-28; Ephesians 1:22, 4:11; Hebrews 10:25; 1 Peter 5:2-4; Mark 16:15-20
LAYING ON OF HANDS
Jesus commissioned all believers to lay hands on the sick for their recovery. The laying on of hands by elders of the church is also used in the ordination of pastors, ministers, elders, and deacons. The laying on of hands can also be used to minister the Baptism in the Holy Spirit.
Mark 16:18; Acts 13:2-3, 6:6, 8:17, 19:6

THE BLESSED HOPE
Jesus is coming again to gather all His sons and daughters to their permanent home, heaven. This hope motivates every Christian to purify himself.
1 Corinthians 15:51-52; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17; 2 Thessalonians 2:1; 1 John 3:2-3
Those who have accepted the redemptive work of Jesus Christ will spend eternity in the presence of God in heaven. Those who have not will suffer eternal separation from God and His presence.
