Our Vision and Covenant of Faith

As human beings we were created to live in relationship to God and each other. As a church we exist to make that happen. At Faith, we want people to discover the truth about Jesus and grow in that relationship, and in their relationships with other people. Through these relationships, we aim to build up a lively, culturally relevant and Christ centered church worshiping and serving in the Holland community.

Through the power of the Holy Spirit we commit to become a diverse, spiritual community of reconciliation, healing and hope. In a world broken by sin, and scarred by suffering, Jesus Christ gathers to himself a new community. As members of that new community, we dedicate ourselves to seeking and expressing the oneness of all who follow Jesus Christ With patient endurance we will strive to be a church without walls, and with grateful joy, we will celebrate the evidences of God's presence among us.
