Who we are

As followers of Christ, we believe it is our responsibility to carry out the original calling Jesus placed on His church: 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, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you" (Matthew 28:19-20).  Anything else we do, no matter how good the intentions are, is meaningless. 

Part of this process is as Jesus commands Peter in John 21:15, 16, 17 when, three times, He says "...feed my sheep."  There are many ways through which we can further the Kingdom of God.  The most effective ways we see throughout the Bible, however, are through serving the community and developing relationships with those around us - not only meeting their immediate needs, but also their spiritual needs by teaching them the good news of Jesus Christ and what it means to follow Him.

We believe this is our purpose - to bring hope to the hopeless, and light into dark places.  To meet people right where they are.  We exist to make disciples and build the kingdom of God - one person and one family at a time.

Church of the nazarene

As a congregation, our main focus is in reaching the local Waco community around us - but our vision and connection doesn’t stop there.  Family of Faith is a part of a larger group, a denomination called the Church of the Nazarene.  Established in many different communities and nations around the world, the Church of the Nazarene follows the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition, emphasizing living a lifestyle of holiness, being sanctified by Christ and no longer being in slavery to sin.  If you'd like to learn more about the Church of the Nazarene, please see our page "What We Believe," or click here.
