At Faith Christian Community, we don’t believe that we are the only people doing good work for the Kingdom in Anchorage and beyond. In Ephesians 4:11–12, Paul says, “And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ.” The body of Christ exists outside of the physical church building we meet in. The list below include ministries that we endorse locally and internationally. They are all faith-based ministries doing good work as the body of Christ, and we want you to know about them!
