Heaven on Earth!!! – I <3 everything about this church. The people, the music, and Pastor Hare are the best! Come visit and see what you think...this church just may end up being your home away from home.
True biblical teaching – I have attended this church for close to 30 years and Faith City is where I first experienced a connection with God. At that time, the pastor was Bert Hare, the founder of Faith City Church, and father of the present pastor. Pastor Steve has continued his father's love and passion for a relationship with God and sharing the true bible teachings with others. Faith City is a true example of Christ, by it's outreach ministries, going out into the highways and bringing the lost in. Prejudices are not felt, only the love of Christ. I appreciate that the pastor teaches straight from the bible and encourages others to seek scripture and understanding to verify his messages. There is a great children's ministry and family and fellowship events. Faith City has shown my family what the true meaning of "Put your money where your mouth is". The bus ministry is an awesome expression of the love of Christ and his ministry to feed His children!! There are no "perfect" churches because there are no "perfect" people. This church is a humble example of lifting up Christ! I have a "relationship" with God and his Son and thanks to Faith City, I have a loving, spiritual, true family to fellowship with.
Awesome church – This church is so amazing, you can really feel the prsence of God here on Sunday Morning's (and any other time). The church really reaches out to those in need, such as free Christmas present's and free coats.
The pastor really has a heart for the poor. And his teaching's are amazing, they are very easy to understand and really help guide your life in the right direction.
Best church in the Delaware area! – Faith City is the best church that I have visited in the Delaware area. I moved here from another state and had to find a church home. I visited several churches until I found Faith City. The pastor and his wife are real! They are genuine believers in Christ and they treat you like a real person, warts and all! They don't judge you. They don't look down on you cause you don't dress a certain way. All of the people that I have met in this church are wonderful! The other thing that I like about this church is that they really don't seem to care what color your skin is or what you did the night before. They just want to share Jesus with you and then you can make up your own mind from there. They have wonderful programs for the kids and there is always something going on here. You can truly feel the presence of God in this church. By the way, the Praise and Worship here is AWESOME!
I am sure that if you look hard enough that you can always find something wrong with any church that you go to. What you have to do is find a church that meets your needs and that shares the gospel of Jesus Christ! The only way that you are going to have a perfect church with no problems is to get rid of all the people! Also, when a church is doing things right for God...the devil is always going to try to mess it up!
We need more local churches like this that are willing to help out the people in their local area. The pastor is also the founder of The Reach FM radio station that now serves 10 states and Canada. Check them out!
So, in conclusion, if you go away from this church with something negative to say...you might want to look inward. Ask someone to pray with you about it. This church is one that believes in God, believes that Jesus died on the cross to save us, and believes that the Bible is God's holy word! They show you by their actions that they mean what they say! Most of all, you can go to scripture to back up what they are saying!
I think the people that wrote negative reviews may have Faith city confused with Greater Grace, which just changed their name to Life Community church of Newark. As a child I remember the youth leaders coming out to the neighborhoods and inviting us to Faith City. They made us each feel so special. I am a 40 year old mother of 5 now and have never forgotten it. Greater Grace/Life Community however would be categorized as predatory. From what I understand they are once again covering another incident of child molestation,not the first time or the second. The damage they have done to people is indescribable and have left so many in pain and "Afraid of church". Faith city would be a great place of healing. I am glad I stumbled upon this site tonight. I might just look them up myself.
Wonderful family church – When I saw the negative review I was astonished. In this day and age when most Christians are quite comfortable sitting in their pews this church reaches out to all in need. I was an active youth worker and road on that bus that ventured into neighborhoods each Sunday. No one is coerced into climbing onto the bus and there is nothing predatory about acts of true kindness, fellowship and love. If more people took the time to be friendly and to share the love that Jesus freely offers to all... our world would be a much better place.
I'm glad to see that they've kept the faith and continue to step out beyond their front doors, beyond the safety of their church and it's comfortable seats to share the love of Christ with any and all. Isn't what what Jesus would expect of us? God has blessed each and every one of those youth workers, the paster and the congregation and they're sharing that with a world that's in need. Hallalujah and glory be to our God that was, that is and forever will be!
Ever heard of phone block? – I must say, that was an amazing review! It is also very accurate. I've been on the bus and rode through the neighborhoods where these children are picked up. No one is scouring the neighborhood to snatch children up and haul them off to a predatory church. Yes, children and other family members are offered hot food, free toys (at Christmas), and free winter coats. Oh yes, I almost forgot... free backpacks for school, free tutoring for school. They are guilty of blaming all their generosity on Jesus, who died for all our sins and gives us hope in this messed up world. Yes, a message of hope is taught to these kids. But, whether or not they get on the bus is entirely voluntary.
church preying on people – Faith City Family Church calls my house 4 or more times a week offering free taco sunday, free happy meal sunday... where they pick children up from a local park and preach to them in exchange for free fast food. predatory, creepy, and annoying. I have yet to find a way to stop the calls.
