"Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen" (Hebrews 11:1).
Many people think faith is some kind of imaginary hope or wishful thinking, but biblical faith is the complete opposite. As believers, we see evidence of how God has provided for us in the past, and that gives us hope for what He will do in the future, even when we don't see what’s coming next.
This past year has been a great example of biblical faith. We had some difficult challenges: limited space due to Phase One construction
, staff transitions, COVID, and crazy economic times to name a few. But God continues to bless our church. As displayed in the Year End Report below, more people engaged in Sunday worship, mid-week ministries, and service, we continued to pay down debt, and we began renovating our new building. Even in the midst of trials, our church has remained strong and healthy, and we believe we are better because
of these trials.
I pray God's faithfulness gives everyone faith to step out and try something new this next year. Where will you serve? Who will you disciple? Who will you tell about Jesus? Who will you invite to church? Let’s celebrate what God has done at Faith Bible, and let that give us courage to take a giant leap of faith this year.
