In 1988 Rev. Wise dropped a bombshell on our nation's believers when she published her book: Sick and Tired of Being a Minister's Wife. It is one of the few books on being a minister's wife which admits and gives advice on the pain of being a minister's wife, while at the same time offers guidance on how to deal with God's man and God's people. Her latest book: When the Stuff Hits the Fan is also destined to be a great seller.

We Are A Young And Growing Church

 

Faith Ministries Church of Columbus, Ohio is a young and vibrant congregation founded in December of 1991. Its chronological age may be somewhat misleading because it does not reveal right away that the founding pastor, Dr. C. Dexter Wise III, is a two time Harvard graduate who has himself been licensed to preach since the age of 16 in 1971 and pastoring since the age of 23 in 1977.

 

The age of the church does not tell of literally several centuries of combined church leadership experience vested in the deacons, staff and other ministry leaders who surround and support Dr. Wise. Nor, does the fact that Faith Ministries is only a few years old cause one to expect that in this brief period, the church has:

•Grown in membership from 6 members to over 1600

•Purchased 29 acres of land on which it has built a new 29,000+ square feet multimillion dollar church complete with sanctuary, classrooms, gymnasium, formal banquet room, parking for over 300 cars and many more unique features

•For several years produced a radio broadcast which was heard each week in six different states across the nation

•Produced a local weekly television broadcast (Soul Food) on WWHO TV since November 2005

•Created its own Internet television station at www.FMCTV.com

•Become the first video distance learning center of the Howard University School of Divinity in Washington, DC

•Developed a host of creative and effective ministries for men, women, youth and children

•Created a community development corporation called: Faith In Action which is the community partner in Faith Village – 144 unit Town Home Development

•Created an international mission outreach called: The International Fellowship of Faith Ministries with members and/or chapters in 14 different countries – www.iffmus.com

•Earned the respect of the greater Columbus community, the nation and people around the world.

 

 

We Are A Mission Minded Church

 

The mission of Faith Ministries Church is to build a community of Christian service for the calling, equipping, empowering and dispatching of men, women, boys and girls into the celebration and service of Jesus Christ both at home and throughout the world.

 

We Are An Interdenominational Church

 

Faith Ministries is aninterdenominational church. By this we mean that we are a congregation made up of people who bring to our church the richness of a variety of denominational backgrounds. God has blessed us to be able to blend the best of so many backgrounds into one spirit-led, bible based church which does not deny its traditional backgrounds, but is in no way bound by them. At Faith Ministries Church, we welcome any and everyone who seeks to celebrate and serve Jesus Christ as Lord.

 

We Are A Ministry Oriented Church

 

Our church is so ministry minded that:

Our church’s middle name is literally “Ministries”.

Our entire church is structured according to ministries.

Our goal is to become the church where every member is a minister.

 

We Are A Socially Conscious Church

 

Faith Ministries is conscious of its responsibility to be a catalyst in the process of transforming its surrounding community into the likeness of God’s Kingdom. We have taken steps towards this end by the creation of a community development corporation called Faith in Action which shares in the ownership of the Mt. Vernon Plaza and Faith Village housing developments.

 

We Are A Family Church

 

Whether you have one or not, when you visit or join Faith Ministries, you become a part of our family. We believe that the family is the basic building block of society and of our church. That is why we place a very high emphasis on and devote a great deal of time and energy to building and supporting families.

 

We Are A Soul Winning Church

 

If for some reason or another, you have not yet accepted Jesus Christ as your personal savior, you can do so right now even as you read this brochure. All you have to do is remember and follow a few alphabets.

 

A - Admit and agree with God that you are a sinner and need to be saved.

B - Believe in your heart that the death of Jesus on the cross of Calvary

     completely and fully paid the price for your sins before God.

C - Confess with your mouth that you are sincerely sorry for the sins of your

     past and that you now accept Jesus Christ as both your savior and

     Lord.

D - Do what the Lord requires of his followers, which includes being:

     baptized, joining a bible believing local church, and the development of  

     basic spiritual habits such as praying, tithing and studying God’s word.

 

Congratulations! You’re saved! It’s just that simple. Feel free to contact us at Faith Ministries to share the fact that you have accepted Christ; or to get more information on how you may continue to grow in the new life which you have just begun.

Our Church

Meet Faith Ministries

As a Body of baptized believers, a congregation of the converted and a community of ministers, we do hereby solemnly, seriously, publicly and boldly affirm our faith.

 

We believe in God the Father, the maker of heaven and earth and in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified dead and buried.  On the third day He rose from the dead and ascended into heaven and sits on the right hand of God the Father.  From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.  We believe in the Holy Spirit and the Holy universal church, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.

 

We furthermore pledge that:

In the area of discipleship, we will be obedient and disciplined followers of Christ.

In the area of worship, we will regularly worship God in Spirit and in truth both publicly and privately.

In the area of stewardship, we pledge to cheerfully give the tithe and generously contribute our offerings for the advancement of this church and the kingdom of Christ throughout the world.

In the area of membership, we will be active in the ministry and will abide by the rules and regulations of this church.

In the area of leadership, we will love, respect and support the pastor as the head of the church under Christ.  To support the overall leadership of the church and be leaders ourselves for the cause of Christ.

In the area of fellowship, we will be a friend to the church and the members of the church in order to foster an atmosphere of Christian hospitality and love.

In the area of citizenship, we pledge to participate in our community as a catalyst to its conversion into the kingdom of God.

 

We moreover declare that:

We seek no position, but a place of service.  We seek no power, but Holy Ghost power.

We seek no glory, but the glory of God.  We have no fear, but the fear of the Lord.

We have no by-laws above the Holy Bible.  We have no creed, but the example of Christ.

We have no law, but the law of love.  We have no weapon but the Word of God.

We have no God, but the Father of Jesus Christ.

 

Finally, we resolve that by the Grace of God and the aid of the Holy Spirit we will translate this affirmation from our lips to our lives to the glory of God. Praise the Lord!

Rev. Shirley Demory Wise, First Lady and co-founder of Faith Ministries Church is a native of Jackson, N C. It was there in her early childhood that she received the old fashion values which she brought along with her at the age of eight when her family moved to Baltimore., MD.

 

In Baltimore, Rev. Wise graduated from Western High School which was a college preparatory school for girls. From there, she enrolled in and graduated from Coppin State College of Baltimore, Maryland with a Bachelor of Science Degree. In addition to being an honor student while at Coppin, Rev. Wise was a Charter member of Coppin's Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority and a participant in Project Mission. This training prepared her for her chosen career as an elementary school teacher. She also holds a Master of Science Degree from John Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland.

 

In 1988 Rev. Wise dropped a bombshell on our nation's believers when she published her book: Sick and Tired of Being a Minister's Wife. It is one of the few books on being a minister's wife which admits and gives advice on the pain of being a minister's wife, while at the same time offers guidance on how to deal with God's man and God's people. Her latest book: When the Stuff Hits the Fan is also destined to be a great seller.

 

Rev. Wise is an ordained minister of the gospel. She presently serves as the Executive Assistant to the Pastor of Faith Ministries Church. She and her husband Dr. C. Dexter Wise III live in the greater Columbus, Ohio area along with their children Sybil, Sheri (James), Shonna, Ceylon (Ashley), their four granddaughters, Angela, Anye', Maya, Mariah and grandson Ceylon D. Wise V.

 

We praise God for Rev. Shirley Demory Wise. As a devoted wife, a committed mother and converted Christian, she is a fearless woman of courage and a modern day model of faith.

Faith Ministries is an Independent Interdenominational Church

 

Faith Ministries is an interdenominational church. By this we mean that we are a congregation made up of people who bring to our church the richness of a variety of denominational backgrounds. God has blessed us to be able to blend the best of so many backgrounds into one spirit-led, bible based church which does not deny its traditional backgrounds, but is in no way bound by them. At Faith Ministries Church, we welcome any and everyone who seeks to celebrate and serve Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
