Faith Church Ministries Vision and Mission
Faith Church Ministries is a dynamic church, which under the direction of the Holy Spirit has been established in many parts of Europe, and around the world.
Having started 25 years ago, with just a handful of people, the church congregation has grown rapidly, with over 3,000 attendees in England alone. According to the vision given to the enthusiastic Senior Pastor – Bishop G A Antony, along with the enormous support of his family, fellow team leaders and believers, by the absolute grace of God, the church has continued to grow – Isaiah 60:22 “The least of you will become a thousand, the smallest a mighty nation. I am the LORD; in its time I will do this swiftly.”
Indeed, the Lord has allowed this to happen and has remained true to His word, carrying our church even through times of hardship, as he said; “…I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you” (Isaiah 46:4)
God has continued to manifest himself in FCM’s church gatherings, as well as through several ministries including television and internet broadcasts, along with children’s ministry and missionary work. The church regularly carries out its missionary work across various parts of England, as well as across the world, especially in France, Italy, Denmark, Sri Lanka and India. One of the key components of this church’s vision is to spread the gospel through personal evangelism. This is in addition to the ladies’ conferences held annually by Revered Mala, as well as Sunday school seminars, leader’s meetings, youth conferences and regular practices held by the music and choir team.
As instructed by God, the church places great emphasis on preaching the good news to the poor, by meeting people through hospital visits, prison ministry, house visits and praying for those who are in need.
This church’s vision is to proclaim His word throughout the ends of the earth, bear witness, win souls for Christ and make disciples throughout the world, starting from the United Kingdom as commanded by our Lord Jesus on Matthew 28:19-20 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
God is raising a generation of champions within this church to proclaim His coming in these last days, as He said, it is “not by might nor by power but by my Spirit.” (Zechariah 4:6).
We hope you will join this generation of champions. Our church is built on continuous prayer, supplication and tears. God has blessed us with all he is doing through us. To God be all Glory.
Born on 22nd December 1956, in Puthukkudiyiruppu, Sri Lanka, Bishop Antony’s life took on an entirely new meaning when, in 1978, he surrendered his heart and life to Jesus Christ.
In 1988, not long after the war in Sri Lanka, he moved – with his family – to Switzerland, where he attended Philadelphia church, before moving to London, in 1993, where he was called to minister the Gospel.
His first ministry started off at home, with his devoted wife Mala, and later grew into a house of prayer with 20 members. Finally, with his burning desire to bring God’s word to all men, Bishop Antony established FCM, with 100 members.
Having started the church in 1994, Bishop Antony, along with Mala and children, Deluxan and Devany, have continued to dedicate themselves to the Lord’s service.
Today – over 23 years later – Bishop Antony continues to work tirelessly, taking the message of God’s work, the love of Jesus, and the power of the Gospel around the globe, through FCM web broadcast, FCM radio, Healing services and conferences, in a selfless quest to show just how good God can be if we are faithful.
