What is The Facebook Church?

“The Facebook Church is a virtual church where we connect the world to Christ, create a heart change in the lives of God’s people, and increase the quality of life through the Word –all to the glory of God.”
As you probably know, a number of people have left the church. Many more have left God; and the idea of congregating as a body is not a priority for so many others. Then there is a huge segment of individuals who attend church, but do not have a personal relationship with God. Still, there are many who do not read or study their Bibles, pray at home, or engage in any number of spiritual disciplines essential to living a successful Christian life. Whether a person fits into one or all of these categories, there is a segment of the Christian community that needs to be reminded of the Covenant which God established with our Father Abraham in order for us to continue to partake of the blessings promised to us as a people. When these principles, which I have referred to as spiritual disciplines, have not been followed or practiced, it is easy to lose interest in the things of God, and therefore, walk totally away from Him. In our Covenant agreement made between God and Abraham, one of the main stipulations made was that in order to continue to receive the blessings of God, every generation after Abraham must maintain their relationship with God and obey Him Genesis 17:7-14. It is impossible to obey God when His principles are not followed. And the very act of not following Godly principles is walking in disobedience. Disobedience opens the door for ungodly attacks against ones finances, physical body, relationships, emotions, and the human spirit. Then there is confusion, and every evil work operating. There are so many who believe that they have no responsibility in what happens to them. Many sit back and just allow things to happen, and then blame God. But we do have a responsibility to “work out our own salvation “Philippians 2:12. We are ultimately responsible for walking into our destiny. When our destiny is aborted, it is because of choices we make. But because of the grace and mercy of God, we will have a destiny, although it will not be God's perfect will, it will be His permissible will. The best one chosen by God is what He originally intended. Ultimately, so many people's lives are in a wreck, and their hope and faith in God have been diminished. The Word tells us that it "is impossible to please God without faith" Hebrews 11:6. So, now we have a separation between God and man. Through separation comes death and destruction - Satan’s ultimate weapon. Finally, Satan’s work has been accomplished, and God’s plan for man has been destroyed. As the called, we have a mandate to work for the cause of Christ with every waking moment. God created the social medium, such as Facebook, through the minds of those who produced these platforms. God is the Creator; man is a producer. While, we can have fun utilizing these media, this is what God means when He says, “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to everyone" Mark 16:15 NLT. We may not be able to walk everywhere Jesus did, but we can travel through cyberspace and be as effective. Besides, we are commanded to take back what the devil stole and use it for God’s glory. This medium belongs to God. We have a right and responsibility to "take it by force" Matthew 11:12. Therefore, every opportunity that The Facebook Church, Spiritual Beginnings Ministries, (SBM) and Wendy Campbell Ministries, (WCM) have, and every platform in which God provides for us to speak, teach, and write, we do just that. So the idea of *The Facebook Church came directly from God. We know that the definition of “church” means people. Wherever you find people, you find the church. And one of the places we find people is Facebook, thus *The Facebook Church. This is the short version to explain what The Facebook Church is. A much longer version would include those outside the church-those who are completely lost and who have no hope.
