Faith Works Ministry adheres to the following Christian doctrine and theology:

THE BIBLE

We believe the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original documents. It has the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

GOD

We believe that there is one true God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. God is not distant and uncaring; He is intimately involved with His creation. He hears and answers prayer, and He saves everyone who comes to Him through His Son, Jesus Christ.

JESUS CHRIST

We believe Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man. He is God’s only begotten Son, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, who lived a sinless life. He suffered and died, taking the penalty for our sins so that we could be forgiven. He rose bodily on the third day, ascended into Heaven, and will personally, visibly return to earth, bringing those cleansed by His sacrifice into eternal blessedness and judging the wicked.

HOLY SPIRIT

We believe that the Father and the Son gave the Holy Spirit to regenerate, indwell, and empower all who believe in Jesus. He comes to live in us when we place our trust in Christ. He helps us, teaches us, and guides us, and convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment.

SALVATION

We believe that we’re all created in the image of God, but are also sinners both by choice and by nature—every one of us. It’s impossible to be good enough to earn salvation—we need to repent of our sins and trust in Jesus Christ. Then we are washed clean by the Holy Spirit, not because of our goodness, but because of God’s grace and mercy. We are then enabled by the Spirit to live lives for the glory of God and the well-being of our fellow men.

Faith Works Ministry believes in classic Christian theology. We are affiliated historically with the Conservative Baptist movement. 

OUR FOUNDER

A Veteran of the United States Army and former Special Agent with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Greg Amundson has a huge heart for Veterans and the Law Enforcement Community, especially those who have faced the challenges of combat, and the effects of traumatic stress. Faith Works Ministry is a place of worship for everyone, yet is presented through the perspective of the Warrior Tradition, recognizing the service of both Military, Firefighter and Law Enforcement, and all those who dedicate themselves to serving and protecting others.

Faith Works Ministry meets once a month at CrossFit Amundson in Santa Cruz, CA, and at Affiliate Ministries around the Country. At our Headquarters location in Santa Cruz, following a workout, Greg leads a ministry, where he weaves stories and lessons from the Warrior Tradition with the Life of Christ, and Word of God. Affiliate Ministries follow a similar format of fitness training, ministry, and sharing a meal. This format allows for an amazing bonding experience, and integrates the principles of developing strength in mind, body and Spirit.

Many of Greg’s sermons are available on “The Gregory Amundson Show” in which Greg educates and inspires you to live with passion, purpose, and a greater understanding of God’s Word. Greg’s messages teach that through a disciplined use of our thoughts, words, awareness and attention, you can achieve a mindset of positive expectancy, personal belief, and an unshakeable faith in God.

CrossFit Gyms from around the Country are encouraged to adopt a Faith Works Ministry in their community. For more information or to get involved, please email Greg@GregoryAmundson.com.
