Why We Serve

“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” -Matthew 20:28

To serve is to give of yourself for another’s good. Serving turns love into action. Jesus Himself considered serving part of His life mission and joy. He didn’t view serving as merely performing good deeds or sacrifice for its own sake. Rather, Jesus emphasized serving in light of His mission—that is, bringing people into a true relationship with Himself.

 

Getting Involved

At FAC we seek to follow the mission Christ set out for us. Jesus came to serve in a spirit of sacrificial love. And love is the heartbeat of the gospel. We form partnerships with other agencies to promote the gospel in our community, region, and world. Explore the opportunities below to see where you can serve and become a part of God’s greater mission.
