image408our work

began in August 2005 as Hurricane Katrina victims emigrated from New Orleans to Douglasville, GA, a western suburb of Atlanta.  Many of the storm-ravaged families relocated to our community needing furniture, beds, and appliances as they moved into apartments, rental homes, and trailers.  Via email, we asked our friends to donate these items which were freely provided as God’s people had need, along with prayer and referral to other resources.

As time progressed, God revealed more of His plan for Faith In Action.  We began to create a relationship-based network of churches, ministries, business, and civic organizations as a means to serve people in need on behalf of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Still later, we learned that Faith In Action was created not just to serve the poor but to build unity within the Body of Christ and further a spiritual transformation of Douglas County, Georgia.

Before He was glorified, Jesus prayed that we would be brought to complete unity, “to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” John 17:23

    FIA is an awesome ministry and it is a joy to serve with the men of God in Douglas County. We believe we should get off the couch and serve others. What’s so cool about that is, we get blessed too, maybe even more than the recipient of the goods.
    God is great!

    This is Breana writing to say thank you ever so much for what you and your team has done for me and my family, but my greater thanks goes to the Lord Jesus Christ for choosing you and your team for all of your selfless service to spread the word of God and also send a message of hope to those who may be discouraged due to this economic crisis.
