Celebrate Recovery

Welcome to Faith Family Christian Center

A place where you can truly come as you are and be loved.

Whether you are investigating the claims of Christianity or you already have a strong and vital relationship with Jesus Christ, Faith Family is a place you can call home. We welcome a casual atmosphere where people are at home in a T-shirt and jeans or wearing their "Sunday go to meeting" best.

We believe that Jesus Christ has provided a way for people to live with peace and hope, even in a world where there seems to be neither . . . We would love to help you experience the hope that only He can give.

Come join us this weekend at Faith Family Christian Center
and discover the God you are looking for!

Matthew 9:33 . . . The crowd was amazed and said, "Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel."

Those are the words spoken after Jesus healed a man who could not speak because of being possessed by a demon. In the context of Matthew 8 and 9 it is only one of many miracles Jesus did. Matthew started with the miracle of healing a leper in chapter 8 and goes from one miracle to another – from one teaching moment to another. These two chapters follow after the Sermon on the Mount in chapters 5-7. It would appear that Matthew has chosen to record this series of miracles as proof to the authority of Jesus to teach what he had taught – these miracles and teachings were recorded to show that Jesus was indeed the Messiah . . . He was and is the King of all!

In chapter 8:1-17 Matthew shows us that Jesus had power over disease.

In chapter 8:16-17, 28-34 we see the power of Jesus over demonic forces

In chapter 8:18-22, and 9:9 we see the power of Jesus over men. He, as the King, is able to say to men follow me

In chapter 8:23-27 we see the power of Jesus over what we call nature as he speaks to the wind and the waves and they obey.

In chapter 9:1-8 Jesus shares with the people that he has the power to forgive sins – a claim that offended the religious folks to the core. Jesus validated his claim by telling the paralyzed man to get up and walk . . . which he did!

In chapter 9:10-17 Jesus portrayed his power over traditions. He had come to do something new.

In chapter 9:18-26 Jesus showed that he even had power over death as he raised the young girl back to life.

In chapter 9:27-31 Jesus displayed his power over darkness. In healing the two blind men who called him by the name of Son of David there was a spiritual lesson as well as a physical healing that took place. Jesus had come to bring sight to those who were in spiritual darkness.

In chapter 9:32-33 Jesus shows his power over dumbness.

And finally as chapter 9 ends and Matthew continues on in chapter 10, Jesus displays his power to delegate authority.

The gospel of Matthew has often been called “The King’s Gospel”. That is because Matthew wrote his account of the events of Jesus ministry so that the reader would understand that Jesus is indeed the King of Kings. Jesus is indeed the fulfillment of the promise and covenant that God made with David – that there would be a son in the line of David who would reign as king forever.

The Pharisees called him the prince of demons. The healed blind men called him Lord. What do we call him today? By our actions what name have we given to this one with power over everything?
