Purpose Statement & Restricted Facility Usage Policy

All of Faith Church’s facilities were provided through God’s benevolence and by the sacrificial generosity of church members. The church desires that its facilities be used for the fellowship of the Body of Christ and to bring God glory. We make our facilities available to persons as a witness to our faith, in a spirit of Christian charity, and as a means of demonstrating the Gospel of Jesus Christ in practice.

Facility use will not be permitted to persons or groups advancing or advocating practices that conflict with the church’s faith or moral teachings, which are summarized in, among other places, the church’s constitution and bylaws. Nor may church facilities be used for activities that contradict, or are deemed inconsistent with the church’s practice. The Senior Pastor, or his official designee, is the final decision-maker concerning use of church facilities.

This restricted facility use policy is necessary for two important reasons. First, the church may not in good conscience materially cooperate in activities or beliefs that are contrary to its faith and practice. Allowing its facilities to be used for purposes that contradict the church’s beliefs would be material cooperation with that activity and would be a grave violation of the church’s faith and religious practice. (2 Cor. 6:14; 1 Thess. 5:22).

Second, it is very important that the church present a consistent message to the community and that the church staff and members conscientiously maintain that message as part of their witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Allowing facilities to be used by groups or persons whose use of the facility will express beliefs or engage in practices contrary to the church’s faith could have a severe and negative impact on the message that the church strives to promote. It could also cause confusion and scandal to church members and the community because they may reasonably perceive, by allowing use of our facilities, the church agrees with the beliefs or practices of the persons or groups using its facilities.

Therefore, in no event shall persons or groups whose event is seeking to advocate beliefs or engage in practices that contradict the church’s faith use any church facility. Nor may church facilities be used in any way that contradicts the church’s faith without written permission to do so from the Senior Pastor or his designee. This policy applies to all church facilities, regardless of whether the facilities are connected to the church’s sanctuary, because the church sees all of its property as holy and set apart to worship God. (Col. 3:17).

Terms of Facility Use Policy

The following Terms of Use are in effect for all facility reservations at any of the Faith Ministry locations:

  1. PERMISSION. Facilities may be used only at the time and for the event (including matters incidental to the event) described in the accompanying Room Reservation Form.
  2. NO PUBLIC ACCOMMODATION. Permission to use facilities does not imply, and shall not be represented as implying, the approval by the Community Center to the views expressed or implied in or incidental to the event. However, it is the intention of the Community Center, neither to create a place of Public Accommodation by permitting some uses which they may not endorse, nor to waive or limit thereby its ability to deny use for any event that in the Community Center’s sole judgment will conflict intolerably with the Church’s purposes and convictions.
  3. TERMINATION. The Community Center may terminate this agreement at any time upon oral or written notice to the Point of Contact identified in the accompanying Room Reservation Form (“User”) if in the Community Center’s sole judgment the Property becomes unsuitable for the purpose stated in the Room Reservation Form or if in Community Center’s sole judgment the occupation and use of the Property by the User will conflict intolerably with Church’s purposes and convictions.
  4. PROPERTY AND CENTER RULES. The User may not bring upon or allow to be brought upon the Property any alcoholic beverages or illicit drugs, or any dangerous, flammable, or explosive item. Smoking is not permitted on the Community Center property. The User may not affix anything to the property unless it can be removed without leaving a residue or otherwise damaging the property. Any damages to Community Center property caused by the User or the User’s guests, invitees, or licensees must be reimbursed to the Community Center by the User. Invitees or licensees may not be disorderly or commit any nuisance on the Property and act in any way that interferes with the exercise by other Users of the Community Center.
  5. SURRENDER OF PROPERTY. On the ending time and date in the Room Reservation Form, the User shall peaceably surrender the Property in as good condition as the Property was at the time of the User’s entry on the Property. The User shall remove all things placed by User or the employees, agents, guests, invitees, or licensees of the User on the Property, and if the User shall fail to do so, the Community Center shall have the right to remove the same at the User’s expense, or to treat such item as abandoned and to retain it as the Community Center’s property.
  6. INDEMNIFICATION AND RELEASE. In consideration of being permitted the use of the property which is owned by Faith Properties Inc., the User, for User and User’s legal representatives, successors, and assigns, hereby releases, waives and discharges the Community Center, its officers, agents and employees, and each of them (“Community Center and Representatives”) from all liability to User and User’s directors, members, trustees, representatives, sureties, its affiliate companies, legal representatives, successors, and assigns (“User and Associates”), for any and all loss or damage, and any claim or damages resulting therefrom, on account of injury to persons or property arising out of possession or use of the Property, whether or not caused by the negligence of the Community Center and Representatives. The User and the User’s officers, agents, employees, invitees and other privies shall use the premises at their own risk. Regardless of any negligence of Community Center and representatives, the User shall defend, indemnify and hold Community Center and Representatives harmless from any and all liability for all damages, costs, losses, and expenses resulting from, arising out of, or in any way connected with Use of the premises. The Community Center and its representatives shall not be liable to the User if for any reason the User’s occupation or use of the Property shall be hindered or disturbed. The User agrees that the User has inspected the Property and is not relying upon any representations of the Community Center and Representatives or any of them as to the condition or state of repair of the property or its suitability for any particular purpose. This release, waiver and indemnification is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by the laws of the State of Indiana, and if any portion thereof is held invalid, the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.
  7. INSURANCE. At the Community Center’s discretion, User may be required to provide proof of liability insurance coverage, with as much as a $1,000,000 liability limit by a certificate of insurance with Community Center and the property owner as additional insured.
