I noticed that Faith Chapel took up a collection or an offering. What's that about?
If you’ve ever been in a church service, you know there’s almost always an offering. Those who attend here regularly support the church with their tithes (10% of total income) as well as offerings to special projects.  These monies work to fund the ministry endeavors here at Faith Chapel.  To ensure that we're being good stewards of what God has entrusted to us, we proactively participate in an annual review or audit by an independent accounting firm.  If you're a first time guest, we ask only that you fill out and turn in a connection card so that we can get to know you. 

Why do we lift our hands?
“I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.” (Psalm 63:4) “Lift up your hands in the sanctuary and praise the Lord.” (Psalm 134:2) “I spread out my hands to you; my soul thirsts for you like a parched land.” (Psalm 143:6)

Why do we stand to sing?
“…We will stand in your presence before this temple that bears your Name and will cry out to you in our distress, and you will hear us and save us…then some Levites from the Kohathites and Korahites stood up and praised the Lord, the God of Israel, with very loud voice.” (2 Chronicles 20:9, 19)

Why do we have speaking in tongues and interpretation of tongues in the church?
“Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good…to other miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues.” (1 Corinthians 12:7, 10) “Tongues, then, are a sign, not for believers but for unbelievers; prophecy however is for believers, not for unbelievers.” (1 Corinthians 14:22)

Why does the whole church pray at once for specific needs?
“When they heard this, they raised their voices together in prayer to God.’Sovereign Lord,’ they said, ‘You made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and everything in them’.” (Acts 4:24)

Why do we have audible praise unto God?
“Shout with joy to God…” (Psalm 66:1)
” …Let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.” (Psalm 95:1)
“Shout for joy to the Lord…shout for joy before the Lord, the King.” (Psalm 98:4,6)

Why do we pray for the sick?
“Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up.” (James 5:14-15)
