Who We Are
Encourage to Faith Ministries, Inc. is a 501(c )(3) non-profit organization founded in 2012. We are thankful to God for the amazing privilege and wonderful adventure of encouraging individuals in their walk with the Lord.
To encourage people into a growing relationship with Jesus. Our God is full of grace, and desires more than anything to share the fullness of His love with each of us.
“This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” -John 17:3
To be relationally available to meet and comfort others and to inspire them to an abiding faith. We heed the call God has placed on our hearts:
“Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!” -Isaiah 6:8
What We Do
Encourage to Faith is a discipleship ministry. By way of individual discipleship and through a variety of faith forums, we are fully committed to walking with individuals as they learn to hear God’s voice and to embrace His transforming love in their lives and relationships.
The heartbeat of our ministry is reflected in the word “relationship.” Growing in intimacy with the Lord is not a religion. God does not call us to a set of dictums, rules, and regulations. He calls us to a relationship. He calls us to Himself. It is through this growing relationship that we experience transformation and learn to fully love others.
When Jesus Christ was asked “Which is the greatest Commandment?” He replied “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind”; and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” -Matthew 22:36-39
Love God. Love others. Sounds simple. And it is, when we learn first to abide in God’s love for us.
