At home and around the world
Missions is the heartbeat of Faith Apostolic Church. The Great Commission tells us that we are to go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone, everywhere. We believe this mandate is not only to share the message of Jesus Christ, but also to show the love of Jesus Christ. We are passionate about fulfilling this Great Commission by reaching beyond the four walls of the church building. Our missions heartbeat is demonstrated by our involvement in ministries to our local communities as wells as overseas missions work.
One way we reach out is through our IndyReach program. This ministry focuses on meeting the spiritual and physical needs of the less fortunate, homeless and those living in shelters and rehabilitation centers in downtown Indianapolis. On a weekly basis, we visit people in the inner city and, on Sundays, we provide transportation to our church where they enjoy a great worship experience and a warm meal afterward. Several times throughout the year, we host outdoor events in the inner city where we pass out food and clothing as well as offer prayer and spiritual encouragement those in need in the inner city. Our church members are also regularly involved in volunteering in women’s shelters and teen mentoring programs as well as Divorce Care, addiction recovery and other ministry groups.
Another way Faith Apostolic Church is going beyond the four walls of the church is by being heavily involved in overseas missions work. We are currently connected with orphanages in Africa, India and Haiti. FAC regularly sponsors overseas trips which enable our members to get hands-on experience working in the orphanages and churches that we are connected with. We recently took a team to Haiti where we helped put a roof on an orphanage and passed out several thousand meals to people in tent villages. Not only is the pastoral staff involved in the foreign missions work through our local church, they also serve in various leadership capacities for the Assemblies of the Lord Jesus Christ World Missions department.
If you have a heart for these and other types of ministries, FAC is a church that will provide you with many opportunities to get involved.
