By Faith


Faith is the foundation of every relationship with God.  At Faith Church of Sherman, Texas we believe in the power of faith! Faith is woven through and is the fabric of everything we do – our song ministry, our Sunday School classes, our children’s ministries, our prayer meetings, our outreach programs, and each and every message taught by our pastors.

What does God’s word say about faith?

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. – Hebrews 11:1

For we walk by faith, not by sight. – 2 Corinthians 5:7

Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. – Mark 11:24

Simply put, Faith is the unequivocal belief God has answered all of your prayers, even when you can’t yet see the answer.

Do you have enough faith?

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. – Matthew 17:20

The mustard seed is one of the smallest seeds to be planted, but it grows to be great.  God’s Word says in Mark:

But when [the mustard seed] is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it. – Mark 4:32

The mustard seed also has one of the strongest flavors of any seed and has many medicinal qualities.  Your faith doesn’t have to be big; by choosing the mustard seed as His comparison, God is telling us that with a little bit of strong faith, you can move mountains in your life!   Little faith will grow into great faith!

How do you strengthen and grow your faith?

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. – Romans 10:17. 

But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost.  – Jude 1:20               


Every time we gather in one accord to hear God’s Word we are nurturing and feeding our faith.  Just like the mustard seed, each time you hear the Word of God, your faith will grow.  Soon, your faith that once was a grain of mustard seed will be a tall tree with outstretched branches capable of supporting yourself and others.

Healing, deliverance, joy, peace, and blessings untold are all promised to you by God; He is waiting for you to claim what is rightfully yours through faith!  If you are looking for a place to grow your faith, Senior Pastor Ryan Cernero, Associate Pastor Dr. Aaron Cernero, and Associate Pastor Eli Brown, along with the entire congregation, invite you to gather together with us in any or all of our services.

Faith Church of Sherman is located just 60 minutes north of Dallas, Texas and offers many opportunities for you to strengthen your faith throughout the week.  On Sunday, we have Sunday School for all ages beginning at 9:45am, morning worship at 11:00am, and evening worship at 6:00pm.  We gather again on Wednesday evenings at 7:30pm for our midweek worship and message.  We also come together on Monday evenings at 7:30pm for intercessory prayer service.

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. – Hebrews 11:6
