Hands of Faith Deaf Ministry
“Welcome Home” to Hands of Faith! It is our hope you will feel at “home” with us. We welcome you with “open arms” and hope you will find a spiritual home in a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. In the gospel of Matthew chapter 5 verse 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 and ministry involvement and through fellowship with other believers as we worship God. It is our desire that the focus of every worship service, every activity, and individual life at Faith seek the Father’s heart, follow His ways and share His love and light with others. American Sign Language (ASL) is the heart language of the Deaf and hard of hearing in communicating to those who want to worship with us in ASL.
