Greetings and Blessings,
Praise God through whom all blessings flow! Thank you for taking the time to visit Firm Foundation online! We are a full gospel bible centered church built on the foundation of Jesus Christ our blessed Lord and Savior!
We recently celebrated our 11th year church anniversary and we are so thankful and excited to still be standing on a solid foundation in Jesus Christ! Our theme for this years celebration was “Running the Race with Patience” according to Heb 12:1 which says, “Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.”
How many of us know that this Christian journey is not a sprint to the finish line! It is more like a long distance race! By the grace of God we have been able to do ministry for eleven years in Jesus Name by staying faithful to the call and purpose of God. We have experienced and accomplished many things as a church, yet we have not done all that the LORD has put in our hearts to do as it relates to the vision, mission and mandate!
Which means that we have much more to do, but guess what? We are running this race with patience. The Bible says, “That he that endures to the end shall be saved.” (Matt 24: 13) We must also be about our Fathers business, which means we must stay focused, faithful and fruitful!
How do we do this? Well, Hebrews12:2 says, “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Did you get that first part? Looking unto Jesus! Not looking to the left or to the right but looking unto Jesus, who is the author and finisher of our faith! I truly believe that if we keep our eyes on Jesus, we can accomplish great things in the name of the LORD!
If you are in the Tampa/Riverview area, we would love to meet you! You are cordially invited to worship with us. If you are visiting our website from a distance, please enjoy the links, sermons and resources! May God bless you abundantly, and may you fulfill all that the LORD has purposed and planned for your life in Jesus Name!
Blessings in Christ,
Pastor Jamal E. Quinn
