STATEMENT OF MINISTRY CONCEPTION
After being ordained to the office of Pastor, in November 2007, I along with my wife founded "Faith, Hope and Love Fellowship, Inc." in Ocala, Florida. Our ministry motto was and remains "A family church where family matters". It was our hearts cry to extend to our community, Faith, Hope and Love, which was conceived out of I Corinthians 13:13 AMPL, "And so Faith, Hope and Love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is Love". We understood that without Faith it was impossible to please God, we understood with Hope deep within the heart of people, it causes them to hold on when the circumstances speaks to the contrary and we understood that Love was the greatest of them all, which everything we do now and until, is built upon.
As we continued with our endeavor to carry out the will of Christ for our lives, those three words, Faith, Hope and Love would be incorporated in everything we do from morning worship services, Bible Study, Outreach, to prison ministry, etc.
In October 2012, God began to speak to us about community needs and therefore, the Holy Spirit impressed upon us to change the name of the Ministry to "Faith, Hope and Love Community Church".
It is our goal to display through a life lived, Faith, Hope and Love to our community and the world. To stimulate a fight of expectation again in the hearts of mankind, that we can walk by Faith and not by sight again, we can Love again and be hopeful again in our today and our tomorrow.
Love, Pastor Ronald and Lady Toforya McCoy
