About Us

A ministry with a mission.

Women of Faith is a non-denominational ministry, providing resources, educational materials, and events which equip and encourage women in deepening their relationship with Jesus. All content will deliver truth, with high-quality and a simple look and feel.

Women of Faith’s Ministry is committed to carrying the legacy of wisdom and authenticity to the next generation of women. Our diverse group of trusted, authentic, and deep-rooted Voices are quality communicators who teach and express Biblically-based perspectives through story and content creation.

Relevant initiatives and improved programs allow new audiences to be reached with the Word of God, while developing and raising up new Voices. Various types of technology, media and events are utilized in delivering the messages and content.

We are dedicated to equipping and encouraging women to be the revival in their homes and communities across the globe.

We believe in living a vibrant, honest, and meaningful life.

We believe the transforming power of grace.

We believe in the healing power of humor and being fun-loving and playful.

We believe in hope.  To be inspired, to dream, to grow and to transform hope into reality.

We believe in building, modeling and elevating community.

We believe in the yearning for continuous personal growth which is a daily process, where you grow to be more and more like Christ.

GOD LOVES US ALL

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.   John 3:16

. . . because He created each of us and each one of us is unique.  Because Jesus came to seek and to save the lost, we feel compelled to do the same.   All of this wonderful diversity means we hold a variety of views.   At Women of Faith, we focus on what unites us. We choose to love and to offer grace to one another. We are here to laugh with you, cry with you, and walk beside you, on your faith journey.  By having a relationship with God, we choose to encourage you to deepen it.  If you are in a different place right now, we choose to introduce you to a community who loves you more than you know.

You may choose to know Him better through His Son Jesus Christ (we hope you will) and it is your decision.  We will continue to love you either way. Some of our Voices and leaders are Bible teachers, who share truths found in the Scriptures. Some share their own unvarnished faith stories with courage and transparency. If something you hear at Women of Faith makes you think, pray, discuss, and dig into the Bible to examine what you believe and why you believe it, we have fulfilled our purpose. The bottom line is this: God loves us. All of us. And He chooses for us to love each other.

What We Believe

Our heart is to connect everyone to the heart of Jesus Christ. Come as you are. Whatever your circumstances, who you are, or where you have been, you matter to God, and He is willing to do an amazing work in your life.  We are an authentic and loving community who love God and each other. We are all imperfect, saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.  We welcome you.

Purpose

The church is called to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ and God’s reconciling grace in the power of the Holy Spirit, inviting persons to receive salvation and follow Christ as His disciples.

God

There is one God, who is the creator, ruler, and sustainer of all things, and eternally existent as the Trinity consisting of one essence in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

God The Father

God the Father is the first person in the Trinity and the source of all that exists.

Jesus Christ

Jesus, as God’s eternal Son, is the second person of the Trinity and is fully God.

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, who proceeds from the Father and Son, and is fully God.

God’s Revelation

All truth is God’s truth, and God has broadly revealed Himself through creation.

Humanity

All people are individually sinners needing forgiveness, salvation from sin, and restoration to God through personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. God created man and woman, and marriage is a holy union between a man and a woman.

Salvation and Sanctification

There is only one way of salvation through the death and resurrection of Jesus.

The Church

The people of God are made up of all who have received God’s gift of salvation, with Jesus as the foundation.

Love and Obedience

The greatest command is to love God, and the second is to love one another.

Christ’s Return and Eternity

We affirm the bodily, personal, second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Note:  The above “What We Believe” is a summary of our beliefs. The Bible, as the inspired and infallible Word of God, serves as the final authority and source of what we believe concerning truth, morality and proper conduct.

Our Events

We create and host events for women,  traveling to meet you where you are.  Our events are an open space where women are able to connect, dream, and grow.  Music, laughter, and grace-filled messages awaken women for what God has in store. These messages speak to heartfelt needs—transforming lives and sparking change which spreads to communities, churches, families, and friends. Women of Faith events are for women who choose to deepen their faith and for women exploring what faith is all about — safe, honest, authentic, vibrant and meaningful — to call all into fellowship with Him.  Women of Faith is a welcoming faith based community helping you to inspire, elevate and empower your life.
