FAITH MINISTRIES

The Poor Box Ministry is a collection box in our Wisconsin Campus auditorium. It acts as a depository for funds that are dedicated to the poorest of the poor. These off-budget funds from contributors are designated for those who are “in the ditch,” like in the Good Samaritan story (Luke 10:25-37), separate from a need for ongoing support or representing a recurring event.

Days of Hope

Days of Hope at Faith is one of our ways to be the hands and feet of Jesus in Anchorage. We gather together and go out as Champions of Hope in the community. Past projects have included serving meals to anyone in need, gathering essentials in backpacks to pass out to people experiencing homelessness, and many more things!
Celebrate Recovery is a 12-step, Christ-centered recovery program. We believe that Jesus is the son of God, lived a perfect life, and died as a sacrifice for our sin. We believe that he rose to life three days later, and that he lives now. We believe that he sent the Holy Spirit to live inside of us and that is what gives us the power to find healing from our hurts, hangupsl, and habits.
Hands of Faith is a ministry devoted to helping others find a spiritual home in a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, with communication through American Sign Language. In the gospel of Matthew 5:16, Jesus says, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” Our goal is to help those grow in their faith in Jesus Christ and lead them toward spiritual maturity, ministry involvement, and fellowship with other believers as we worship God.

MINISTRY AFFILIATES

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!
