Purpose

Our purpose is to provide legal and operational sponsorship for qualified individuals who wish to conduct Christ-centered ministry but do not have the need, experience, time or desire to incorporate and operate a full-fledged non-profit organization.


Mission statement

Our mission is to expand the impact and the influence of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a cost-and time-effective manner as possible.


Statement of faith

We subscribe to the basic doctrines of historic, biblically faithful Christianity. We believe the Bible says what it means and means what it says - and is still true, active and powerful.

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only, infallible, authoritative Word of God

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit

We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory

We believe that the salvation of lost and sinful people is accomplished by grace alone through faith in Jesus Christ alone, by the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life

We believe in the resurrection of the saved and the lost, those who are saved to the resurrection of life and those who are lost to the resurrection of damnation

We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ

Core Values

We are committed to:

Our role in fulfilling the Great Commission given by Christ in Matthew 28:19

Serving ministry leaders who in turn serve multitudes of people

Supportive ministry relationships and partnerships

Efficient stewardship of the resources entrusted to us

The belief that providing for spiritual and material needs go hand-in-hand

The sanctity of all human life

The conviction that marriage is the union of one man and one woman

Religious freedom for all

History

Originally incorporated as Faith in the Family, this ministry was launched on January 1, 1991 by Rev. Marty Granger. During the years 1991-1996, Marty spoke and taught on family issues, led retreats for married couples and assisted national Christian organizations in facilitating major events and activities in Washington, D.C. In 1995 Marty served Promise Keepers as the Event Manager for the Men's Conference held at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C., attended by 52,000 men.

In the spring of 1996, Faith in the Family decided to expand its outreach with the Member Ministry Program, a strategy to multiply impact by sponsoring ministry programs under the Faith in the Family organizational umbrella. In May 2011, FFI took another step in its growth and development by moving the organizational headquarters from Northern Virginia to Charlotte, North Carolina. Finally, in the spring of 2014, Faith in the Family became MINISTRY ALLIANCE to more accurately reflect its purpose and mission.
