What is FoundersCare?

FoundersCare is a service ministry that provides opportunities for Founders Baptist Church members to use their gifts of service to benefit the cause of Christ in our church. FoundersCare originates from our shared life in Jesus Christ and commitment to obey His Word. In John 13:34-35, Jesus said: “I am giving you a new commandment, that you love one another; just as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all people will know that you are My disciples: if you have love for one another.”


Why FoundersCare?

FoundersCare facilitates member awareness of tangible needs in our church and a consistent response structure for meeting these needs under Elder oversight. The foundation of FoundersCare is scripture and prayer as we walk in obedience to the good works prepared for us (Eph. 2:10). From this foundation, the body of Christ grows in unity in ways explained and empowered by the work of the Holy Spirit as we practice the “one-anothers” in biblical community. Ours is a shared life of love (1 Jn. 3:14), sacrifice (Jn. 15:13), and service (Gal. 5;13) under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, who gave spiritual gifts “to equip the saints for works of ministry and to build up the body of Christ, until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God, as we mature to the full measure of the stature of Christ” (Eph. 4:11-13). We bear the burdens of our brothers and sisters in Christ (Gal.6:2) by “bearing with one another in love, being diligent to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” (Eph. 4:2b-3). In love, we steward our spiritual gifts (1 Pet.4:10) with humility (Eph. 4:2) and grateful submission (Heb. 13:2), knowing we are only willing instruments in God’s sovereign work (Phil. 1:6).
