Faith Works Church encourages practicing the following three spiritual disciplines.
In the Bible it says, “The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life” (Job 33:4). At Faith Works Church, we encourage our attendees to spend a few moments each day in the spiritual discipline of slow and conscious breathing.
Slow, steady, and deep breathing through your nostrils has been medically proven to support optimum health, reduce stress, and to foster a sense of tranquility. Most importantly, a daily practice of mindful breathing helps create peace in your mind, ultimately allowing “space” in your thinking to experience the grace of God.
The Bible teaches, “Be still, and know I am God” (Psalm 46:10). We believe one of the most effective ways to experience the embrace of God is silence and stillness in His presence. At Faith Works Church we teach a variety of meditation practices, to include meditation on the biblical name of God, “Yahweh” and “I AM” in addition to the “Jesus Christ prayer.” Biblical meditation (also referred to as Christian Contemplation) has been shown to have numerous benefits, including a heightened sense of tranquillity, mental clarity, peacefulness and awareness of God’s presence.
In the Bible it says, “Your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit in you” (1 Corinthians 6:19). At Faith Works Church, we believe everyone has a responsibility to strengthen the temple of both our body and our mind. Exercise and physical fitness can be a form of “active worship” for those committed to developing a relationship with God. We encourage everyone to take daily steps to enhance fitness, which encompass exercise, proper nutrition, and hydration.
