Home Field & Missions Ministry
Home and Foreign Field Mission Statement
"For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land." Deuteronomy 15:11
The mission statement of Faith Outreach Apostolic Church food pantry is to feed anyone regardless of his or her spirituality, race or creed. It is our hope that we not only nourish the spiritual man through sustenance, but through our many acts of kindness. Our goal is to help heal the hurt of hunger. I would like to see our hours and days of operation expand to meet the needs of the community. We will continue to grow our outreach service to the India Mission, the Haiti fund and any other crisis at home or in the foreign field.
Missionary Board Mission Statement
Our mission statement for our missionaries is bringing lost souls to Jesus, to go into all the world and to preach the gospel to every creature that all may be saved and come to the Knowledge of the truth.
"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15)
As Missionaries we see our goal for this year as having three basic aims. Our first aim is to increase our street witnessing, continuing with Faith Outreach's immediate neighborhood first. Along with Christ's message of salvation we aim to distribute informational flyers on our food pantry. We understand that if a brother or sister is destitute of daily food we cannot say to them, "Depart in peace, be warmed and filled." If we do not give them the things, which are needed for the body, what does it profit? Faith, if it does not have works, is dead. (James 2:17)
Our second aim is to reach out to the community through various activities. One would be a summer outdoor service held on our adjacent property at 42 Bond Street. Other activities would include visits to nursing homes and hospitals along with home visits to shut-ins and the bereaved. We want to remember that "pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in there trouble and to keep oneself unspotted from the world." James 1:27
Our third future aim we have is the starting of a prison ministry. In conclusion our goal as Faith Outreach missionaries is multifaceted, embracing witnessing, outdoor services and addressing community needs both physical and spiritual.
