Faith

Serving Together in Ministry

Habitat for Humanity is an ecumenical Christian ministry built on the
biblical principles of obeying God, loving one another, and caring for
the poor. Habitat and the faith community are natural partners in this
hands on ministry, where people are given an opportunity to put their
faith and love into action and see tangible results.

Our love should not be just words and talk;
it must be true, which shows itself in action. –1 John 3:18

What is a Faith Partner?

People of faith hear a calling to reach out to those in need and change the world. We offer them that chance. Together, we embrace our shared calling to make a difference in the world. We do that by partnering with others renovating and building homes and hope. The HFH GLA ministry allows congregations the opportunity to follow Christ’s teachings by serving those in need. Each home built by Habitat is a testimony to the love of God.

As Faith Partners you will become the hands and feet of the Lord to provide homes for people in need of safe, decent, affordable housing. These partnerships also confirm that you are committed to being a part of the mission to eliminate substandard housing in our communities.

There are so many ways to be a faith partner, but before you do anything else, pray for your neighbors in need and pray to know what you can do in their behalf. Pray for Habitat for Humanity and our partners as we work on behalf of those in need. Please let us know that you are praying for us by clicking here.

Our Faith Partners are faith-based organizations that partner with us to make decent affordable housing a matter of conscience and action in the Greater Los Angeles community. Through prayer, volunteer labor, and finacncial contributions, our Faith Partners are invaluable supporters of HFH GLA, and the familie we serve. Another way to partner with Habitat is through financial donations. Whether it is a onetime special offering, or a house sponsorship, all contributions are welcomed and appreciated.

If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ,
if any comfort his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit,
if any tenderness and compassion,
then make my joy complete by being like-minded,
having the same love, being one spirit and one purpose.
–Philippians 2:1-2
