WHY WE ARE HERE
Faith Builders Raytown is first a family, one that is passionate about following Jesus and committed to love, serve, and do life with one another.
Our value for relationships makes us stronger, grows us personally, and equips us to truly make a difference.
Our heartbeat is to love God and love people as we build your faith and frame your world by the Word of God!
In 2004, Pastor Mark Gazaway heard the call of God to raise an army and to equip and disciple that army with the Word of faith. He answered that call and established Belton Family Worship Center House of Mercy in Belton, Missouri.
Over the past 16 years, Pastors Mark and Angela have followed God's instruction to raise up an army. Through their obedience, they have witnessed countless lives changed by the Word of faith.
In 2019, Pastor Mark heard the voice of the Lord instruct him to become a part of the Faith Builders family of churches under the leadership of Pastors Philip and Michelle Steele. Pastor Mark and Angela are continuing to raise up an army and to build their faith and frame their world by the Word of God!
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe in one God— Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Creator of all things.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the first begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, was born of a virgin, was crucified and died, was buried and resurrected, ascended into heaven, is now seated at the right hand of God the Father, and is both true God and true man.
We believe the Bible, in its entirety, to be the inspired Word of God and the infallible rule of faith and conduct.
We believe in the resurrection of the dead, the eternal happiness of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the lost.
We believe in the personal salvation of believers through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
We believe in sanctification through the Word of God and by the Holy Spirit, and we believe in personal holiness, purity of heart, and life.
We believe in divine healing through faith in the Name of Jesus Christ, and we believe that healing is included in the Redemption.
We believe in water baptism, in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as distinct from the New Birth, in speaking with tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance (Acts 2:4), in the gifts of the Spirit, and in the evidence of the fruit of the Spirit. We believe that all of these are available to believers.
We believe in the Christian’s hope: the soon-coming, personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
At Faith Builders we are a family church. The local church is the backbone of our community and welcome your family to any of our full slate of services! From Praise & Worship to the ministering of God's Word, join with us and experience growth in every area of your life through the dynamic ministering of the Gospel at every worship service.
