Ownership @ Torch of Faith

Members have rights, but owners have responsibilities.

At Torch of Faith, we want owners, not “members.” Still interested?  Watch the series on Ownership at Torch of Faith that was preached in August 2018 entitled “I Love My Church.”

The Five Commitments of Ownership at Torch of Faith

1. I will carry the fire of worship with my church family. (Worship) Watch “Carriers of the Fire.”
2. I will be outrageously committed to helping people find God. (Evangelism) Watch “Sharers of the Message.”
3. I will pursue renewal, not just rededication. (Discipleship) Watch “The Problem With Trying Harder.”
4. I will be a force for unity in my church family. (Fellowship) Watch “How to Stop a Move of God.”
5. I will humbly serve to build up my church family. (Ministry) Watch “Our Problem With Gifts.”


At Torch of Faith, we know we are not the only church out there. We don’t have the market cornered on Jesus and hard work. We may not be a certain person’s church and we are okay with that. We know that Torch of Faith is not for everybody, but we do believe that every believer should be part of a local church. We think that it is a spiritual impossibility for a person to love Jesus and not love the local church that Jesus died for.

At Torch of Faith, getting plugged into our church means becoming an Owner. This is because when you own something, you are invested in it. You do whatever it takes to grow and improve it. We believe every Jesus-follower should belong to a local church and take ownership of that church. Ownership expectations at Torch of Faith include the following….

  • Serve in some capacity.
    • Use the talents God has given you within the church.
  • Be in a group two semesters a year.
    • Prioritize intentional community with God’s people.
  • Be a giver, moving toward the process of tithing.
    • Take the next step in using the money God has called you to steward to advance His church
  • Attend as often as you can.
    • You need God’s word and his people to grow. Unchurched Charlie needs you in order to grow.
