About Us

Putting Our Faith To Work So All May Know That Faith Works

We begin with the fundamental belief that all are children of God. If children, then heirs of God and all that God has in store. This basis guides our approach as to how we relate to our brothers and sisters. We seek to see one another as God sees. We offer hospitality. We listen. We accept. We love. We act. We are not as concerned about getting it right or doing it right, but that our thoughts, words and deeds are based on God’s love for all and our love for God. We make mistakes. We fall short. We examine and review in order to improve and to serve more effectively. We extend the grace that has been extended to us.  FaithWorks is an affiliated ministry of the United Methodist Church.

Our Mission

FaithWorks actively develops collaborative, ecumenical and secular partnerships that maximize resources that meet human needs. Currently, we partner with 60 churches and church groups and have almost 1200 individuals and businesses that provide financial support. We seek to foster relationships and community spirit by connecting people to eliminate prejudice and to heal brokenness.

Our Vision

Putting Our Faith to Work So All May Know That Faith Works

Our History

FaithWorks began in 1995 as a ministry of the United Methodist Church to identify, to study, and to create models for ministry beyond the walls of the local church.

From its early years, FaithWorks has evolved into a community-focused ecumenical ministry that focuses on -- but is not limited to -- community healthcare services and poverty needs in Glynn County, GA and the surrounding Southeast Georgia area. 

More than 30 churches, 106 businesses and 14 service organizations support and participate in the fulfillment of FaithWorks’ mission today.
