Our Christian mission

SHARE:

FMSC is a Christian non-profit organization. We believe Jesus Christ has called us to feed the hungry and serve those in need. We strive to follow his calling every day in all that we do. 

It's about Jesus

At the very core of FMSC as an organization, it’s all about Jesus. He’s the reason FMSC exists.

In 2003, sixteen years after FMSC was founded (1987), the organization was rededicated to the Lord. We placed our focus back on Jesus Christ, committing to honor Him. He has called us to feed his kids, and with his help we will keep reaching farther around the world until ALL are fed.

Our Statement of Beliefs

As a Christian organization:

  • We believe that there is one God, in three persons: Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. He has directed us to help others in need.
  • We believe that the Bible is the authoritative word of God, inspired by God.
    (2 Timothy 3:16-17, "All Scripture is god-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.")
  • We believe that all have sinned and are hungry in spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the bread of life and that through faith in him we can be spiritually fed and saved from our sin.
    (John 6:35 – Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.")
  • We believe Jesus Christ is the reason that FMSC exists and we strive to listen for and follow His will through prayer and through action every day.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ desires for every child to be fed a nutritious meal.
    (Matthew 25:35 – "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat.")
  • We believe that our lives are enriched when we graciously give our own time and resources to help others in need.
    (Luke 6:38 – "Give and it will be given to you.")
  • We believe that partnering with other faith based and humanitarian organizations maximizes our ability to feed God's children.

Our Commitment to Excellence

  • FMSC's obedience to Christ and commitment to Christian principles will guide and direct our Organization in fundraising, packaging and distributing food to those in need.
  • We encourage people of all beliefs to volunteer with us to help us accomplish our mission.
  • We will ensure our food ingredients are of the highest nutritional value to meet the needs of starving children.
  • We will package our food through the use of volunteers to feed their spirit.
  • We will partner with other humanitarian organizations to ensure safe transit and distribution of our food.
  • We will distribute nutritious food to starving children throughout the world who are hungry in body and spirit.
  • We will pray for the successful delivery of our food and for the physical and spiritual nourishment of its recipients.
  • We commit to supporting long-term feeding programs which help ensure the continued growth of the children who receive our food.
  • We will promote public trust of our Organization through efficient, cost-effective, and compassionate stewardship of our resources.
  • We will provide for our employees a satisfying work environment that honors Christ and seeks to exemplify the Christian principles of love, compassion, humility, servant-leadership, and accountability.

Focus on Prayer

Prayer plays an important part of FMSC. We pray over every meal. We believe prayer protects our food. We invite volunteers to pray over the food they’ve packed. FMSC staff gathers to pray for each loaded container before it leaves our dock doors. 

By God’s grace more than 99% of all meals have arrived safely at their intended destination.

Christian Mission

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat."

While we’re firmly Christ-centered, we welcome people of all faiths (and none) to pack, fund and eat FMSC meals! Our partner organizations distribute the food unconditionally. We work well with secular businesses and public schools. We create an environment where everyone will feel comfortable volunteering. Through our actions, we strive to help people around the world encounter the love of God.
