Faith in the Future

“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1
Faith Church possesses a beautiful property on Route 6 and the vision of building a new church building on the hill lives in the hearts and minds of many of our members. The dictum “Faith in the Future” has been used to encapsulate the vision of building a new church on Route 6. Not only does this statement express our confidence in the future that God will provide for his children and Faith Church – “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11). But it also asks of us to dream about what Faith Church might look like in the future and what impact her ministry will have on the community we are part of – “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.” (Matthew 5:14).
If we have faith in God’s future, and if we have a godly vision of what Faith Church will look like in the future, then there is every possibility that God can and will make this happen. God’s Word says having faith is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot yet see. It is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. Faith is our handle on what we can’t see.
We are currently brainstorming ideas in order to formulate a strategy for raising the funds necessary to build our new sanctuary. Please pray that God will keep our vision alive and provide the ways to move forward.
