One of Jesus’ last instructions was to go into all the world and preach and teach the Gospel (good news), Mark 16:15-18,

Matt. 28:20.  We’re fulfilling that commission locally at Family Church.

 Family Church’s Iowa City campus grew out of a Bible study that began on August 20, 1978 with nineteen people.  Through the years the church has increased in vision and ministry to include:

                   Ministry:              to God

                                                to His People

                                                to the world in need of Jesus

 In other words:

  1. We preach the uncompromised Word of God.
  2. We emphasize and demonstrate prayer, worship, individual study of the Scriptures and obedience to God.
  3. We comfort and encourage believers in their personal walk with the Lord.
  4. We support the family and biblical values through the Christian education of adults, teenagers, and children.
  5. We instruct, train, organize, and provide opportunities for the believers to do the work of the ministry.

In short, the church is people helping people…sharing Christ with the love of God.
