FH Canada’s Core Values

God is our foundation
We are motivated by Christ’s love to walk with the most vulnerable as they reconcile relationships and overcome poverty. The Church plays a central role in many of the communities we work alongside.

Relationships first
We recognize that people are at the end of every decision and make that responsibility our priority.

Commitment to service
Helping others is part of our DNA. We apply that philosophy as we walk with communities around the world, our co-workers, and amazing donors like you!

Invest wisely, focusing on results
We strive to make wise, long-term decisions with your generous donations to meet our goal of walking with communities out of poverty and into sustainability.

Statement of Faith

We accept wholeheartedly the revelation of God given in the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments and confess the faith therein set forth and summarized in such historic statements of the Christian Church as the Apostles Creed and Nicene Creed. We here explicitly assert doctrines which are crucial to the understanding and proclamation of the gospel and to practical Christian living.

1. The sovereignty and grace of God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in creation, providence, revelation, redemption, and final judgment.

2. The divine inspiration of Holy Scripture and its consequent entire trustworthiness and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

3. The universal sinfulness and guilt of human nature since the Fall, bringing everyone under God's wrath and condemnation.

4. The substitutionary sacrifice of the incarnate Son of God as the sole ground of redemption from the guilt, penalty, and power of sin.

5. The justification of the sinner by the grace of God through faith alone in Christ crucified and risen from the dead.

6. The illuminating, regenerating, indwelling, and sanctifying work of God the Holy Spirit in the believer.

7. The unity and common priesthood of all true believers, who together form the one universal Church, the body of which Christ is the head.

8. The expectation of the personal, visible, return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
