The broader mission of Four Peaks Christian Church is to share the Word of God to anyone who wishes to hear it. It is our job, as ministers of the Word of Truth to tell the whole world about Jesus Christ, His birth, death and resurrection, and the free gift of Salvation to anyone who accepts.
It is our job and duty to humbly and lovingly present our hope, both now and for what is to come. Our message is to be simple and straightforward — a clear concise account both verbally and physically of what it looks like to be a Christian, a true Christ follower living by God's Word.
This year we hope to accomplish even more than we did in 2022, by continuing to proclaim God's awesome Word in boldness and in truth, regardless of whether or not an in person place of worship materializes.
We will be looking at topics such as what God desires of us in worship, in addition to many other topics relating to parenting, substance abuse, the sacraments, prayer, reading the Bible, and our conduct as believers in the world, and much more.
Make 2023 a year you get involved with living out your ministry God has called you to participate in, and that of living out your life in Christ and being prepared to tell the world about what you have found in and through salvation. Together, let's get back to Christ centered basics.

WHAT WE STAND FOR
Four Peaks Christian Church is dedicated to serving, encouraging, loving, and teaching everyone who is interested in pursuing a relationship with Jesus Christ, and to live as He calls us in everything we do.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
• We believe the entirety of the Holy Bible, God’s Word, and believe it is inerrant (without error), God inspired, and God ordained.
• We believe in the triune God, Father, Son and Spirit, three-in-one, one in the same.
• We believe that Jesus, fully God, fully man, was born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, was crucified, dead and buried, and that through death, the blood that He shed was the ultimate and only price that could be paid for the forgiveness of all sin.
• We believe that Jesus was resurrected from the grave after three days, and is now residing with God in Heaven.
• We believe Jesus will return and take all those who have committed their lives to Him by accepting the free gift of Salvation.
• We believe that both communion (the Lord’s supper) and baptism are integral parts of being obedient to God in our lives.
• We believe we are to honor God through our tithing, prayer, music, and fellowship by gathering regularly in worship.
• We believe that we are called to love everyone, in the same way Christ loves us.
• We believe we are to be very missional Christians, who are always prepared to give a definitive answer of the Hope that lives in us to anyone who asks, which is the testament of our faith, our life in Christ Jesus.
• We believe Marriage is as God's Word states in Genesis 2:24
With regard to other questions and politically charged life topics, Four Peaks Christian Church will refer you to God's Word as we hold to those truths.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
West Kenyon, founder of Face Your Faith, has spent over eighteen years providing encouragement and direction through teaching and counseling in God's Word to over ten thousand men and women at one of the worlds largest Christian based rehabilitation providers. While he continues to teach and provide Christian spiritual counseling, the opportunity to share God's Word to an even broader audience is his passion.
West said, “Teaching God’s Word is my passion and I wish to honor God by doing this in as many ways as I possibly can with respect and dignity." West went on to say, “this is not about coercing anyone into believing in God, rather as I see it, it is about presenting what I believe to be the truth about God, and God’s Word, and what is possible in life through Salvation in Jesus."
"I believe it is also very important that those teaching God’s Word must do so with respect, love, and grace while all along being completely unapologetic and direct in the presentation."
It is our hope that God will allow this ministry of Four Peaks Christian Church to flourish, and we pray that if God leads you, you will be a part of this journey, so that one day we will be worshiping together in His name.
More information on our progress will be available and questions you may have will be answered over the remainder of this year. Be sure to check back regularly or SIGN UP for our email updates.
LISTEN TO THIS WEEK'S PODCAST
Do You Know What God Desires of You
To seek God first in all things, to honor God in how we live, and to teach Christ centered basics so that we might grow in a personal relationship with Him.
To continually grow in a relationship with God in order to become better equipped to execute His purpose for our lives, to spread His word.
In February 2021 Face Your Faith www.FaceYourFaith.com was launched as an online Bible study resource to encourage those who are looking for serious, yet enthusiastic Biblical life application teaching. Furthermore, it was designed around those who are hungry to grow their relationship with God and for those who are serious to Challenge Their Faith in order to live out God's Word in boldness, sincerity, humility and free from fear and defeat.
Throughout 2022, Face Your Faith gained a listening audience that was far greater than expected. With over 225,000 visiting our website and social media channels throughout that time, and with over 10,000 messages downloaded over the course of the year, we began to receive a number of inquires as to whether or not a physical place of worship would be considered.
After much consideration and prayer, a focused effort has begun in earnest to bring together a church body in the Phoenix, Arizona metro area in 2024.
What exactly this will look like and the location is still in the very early stages, but the reliance on God will not wither and it will be pursued to the end, regardless of whether or not a formal church body meeting together is God’s ultimate plan.
With this anticipated change in direction, Face Your Faith will become the online home for the teaching ministry of Four Peaks Christian Church.
WHAT'S IN A NAME
The naming of Four Peaks Christian Church was adopted from a prominent and beautiful section of mountains known as Four Peaks, which is part of the greater Mazatzal (Mah-zaht-zahl) Mountain range, which is located just a short distance to the northeast of the Phoenix, Scottsdale, area of Arizona.
With regard to our logo or mark that is associated with the name, it is a hybrid of the Jerusalem Cross and a Cross Crosslet and was specifically designed for Four Peaks Christian Church.
The symbolism of this style cross first appeared around the 13th century and has carried with it varied meaning and traditions. Today however we are adopting this stylized version to represent the four-corners of the world, and the mission we have been charged by God to undertake, and that of proclaiming God's Word to all the World.
WHY ANOTHER CHURCH
It is our belief that many churches are quickly abandoning passionate teaching dedicated to equipping believers with a deep understanding of their relationship with Christ. Additionally, we believe many churches are no longer providing clear direction and the need to share God’s Word with maturity and passion.
Four Peaks Christian Church believes it is time to get very real, and back to Christ centered basics, and once again become hungry students of God's Word, and to worship with passion.
It is our goal to bridge the ever widening gap of the declining church, back to what God desires each of us to be: unexpected, knowledgable, dedicated, and prepared servant leaders of God to the world, and to love the unlovable, in the same way God loves us.
The goal is to see each of you get very real with your life in Christ and welcome the many challenges and trials God will use in your life to grow you for His perfect purpose.
The goal is for you to dig deep into God's Word in order to know it intimately, and to use it in ways you never have for both yourself and others.
The goal is for you to be well equipped to spread God's Word and live in freedom and in peace even in times of persecution.
The goal is to give everyone who desires to grow more deeply in their relationship with the Lord the opportunity to do so with great encouragement and in love.
