About Us

HISTORY
Joy of Faith Christian Ministries was established the first Sunday in July, 2000, by Pastor, Dr. Samuel N. Smith and First Lady, Regina R. Smith. Joy of Faith used to meet in the Hawthron Hotel at Northlake for six years. In October of 2006, Joy of Faith moved to Lavista Office Park on Northlake Parkway where we are currently today. Joy of Faith is a nondenominational church which is open to all people for worship. We are founded upon the vision of Luke 4: 18-19 "18The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach, deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.(KJV) As a church we strive to meet the spiritual needs of all people regardless of race, culture or socioeconomic background.


WHAT WE BELIEVE
The Lord Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God. We believe in His substitutionary death on the cross for all men, His resurrection, and His return to earth to judge mankind. 

The Holy Scripture
We believe that the scriptures are the inspired words of God, that give us a revelation of who God is and His will for mankind.

Stewardship
We believe that God provides the financial resources for us to live. Therefore it is because of our love and obedience to Christ, that we give of our tithes and offerings unto the Lord with a willing heart.

The Spirit
We believe in the existence of the Holy Spirit as the third person of the trinity. He is present in the world today making men and women aware of their need for Jesus Christ.

Salvation
We believe that all men are born with a sinful nature and have a need to be redeemed from the power of sin. We believe that the work on the cross opened the door for man to believe and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
