WHAT WE BELIEVE...
At FTMBC, our mission is to passionately pursue the work of proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ and to serve, through the Gospel, as a vessel for effecting positive change within the people and communities we touch. Our mission is founded upon the message revealed within Luke 4:18-19:
The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me; Because He has anointed me to preach the Gospel to the poor; He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.
The Gospel message encourages hope and grants greater possibility for the life of every believer. It is our vision that convinced of the transforming power of this good news, the light of liberation will shine within and through us, thereby affecting the lives of others about us.
We firmly believe in the rebirthing power of the Gospel to renew hearts, restore perspectives, and revive possibilities, all of which will be reflected in the resurrected lives of each individual.
OUR MISSION & VISION CONNECTED:
REBIRTH: Preach the Gospel to the Poor
Our primary calling is to proclaim the Gospel to the poor, or those whose spirits are poor (dead) as a result of sin. By receiving the preached message of hope, rebirth will take place within the heart of each individual, revealing the richness of His amazing grace.
RENEWAL: Heal the Broken Hearted, Preach Deliverance to the Captives
Our hope is generated once His word is planted within our hearts, and as a result, the comforting hand of the Master mends our hearts, which were, once broken. Though we were once held captive by the pain of shattered dreams, this good news causes a renewal of self and purpose—giving us brand new hope for fulfilling our dreams.
RESTORATION: Recovering of the Sight to the Blind
Our renewed purpose that stems from our acceptance of His word gives us new perspective. Our blinded eyes are restored. This spiritual recovery produces promise and possibility within the heart of every new believer. A new found faith in the Good News of Jesus Christ produces restoration of life.
REVIVAL: Set at Liberty Those Who Are Bruised
Our restored vision sparks within us a vigor and zest from the past. We who were oppressed are now freed from the chains that once bound us. Our painful yesterday is now covered with the soothing medicine of His mercy and grace. Once our souls have been freed, then revival takes place in our lives.
RESURRECTION: Preach the Acceptable Year of Our Lord
Our revived lives reveal the powerful life-changing effect of this good news. This new life represents a complete regeneration— the old is entirely new. The “year of our Lord” represents the present time for salvation. Once we accept the word of the Lord, the Spirit anoints a rebirth, a renewal, a restoration, and a revival, all which signify an experience of resurrection.
