Faith Promise

What is Faith Promise?

Faith Promise is a promise made in faith between you and God. All gifts are part of the church’s World Evangelism giving. This helps the church share Christ’s transformational love with the world and fulfill our call to make Christlike disciples.


What does Faith Promise Do?

   Faith Promise supports:

  • Regional Mission work worldwide

  • Funding, insurance, and member care to missionaries

  • Ministries such as NMI, Nazarene Youth International, Nazarene Mission Teams, and Global Missions

  • Local Missions

  Faith Promise also supports:

  • Literature resources in 90 languages worldwide

  • Clergy development and ordination through Nazarene institution of higher education

  • Independently funded ministries such as Jesus Film, Compassionate Ministries, and World Mission Broadcast


We ask if you would please join us in prayer and commit to praying for our missionaries and for the success of Christ's missions around the world. You may give your Faith Promise donation at any time during the year. Pray about and consider a monthly, yearly or one time gift towards missions. Please see your Faith Promise booklet (available in Fellowship Hall) for more information or read more below.

Next Faith Promise: April 5th-7th, 2024


Every year, Nazarene Missions International (NMI) hosts an annual Faith Promise conference to share our yearly mission and goals with the church. Through Faith Promise, as your local NMI, we achieve our missional goals both locally and worldwide. NMI helps to support sharing the message of Christ throughout the world in a variety of ways such as providing for missionaries and their families, encouraging outreach, helping others in times of crisis, etc. (See more Missions Projects below) Locally, NMI functions to help the Body of Christ focus directly on sharing the love of Jesus as we live as the hands and feet of Jesus.


Together, as RCNAZ church, we play a huge part in sharing the Gospel by serving, giving and praying for our missionaries. Please pray and consider making a pledge to NMI this year and help us to change the world through God's love. Thank you for your support and continued prayers.


Donations toward NMI Faith Promise may be given throughout the year. In fact, many givers make a monthly offering to Faith Promise at their own pace.
