About Us

The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. Instead He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

2 Peter 3:9

WHO WE ARE

F.A.I.T.H. Riders is a Motorcycle Ministry passionate about sharing Christ with the world.

As the Lord inspires practical ministry opportunities, we are diligent to share the Good News of the Salvation Message of Jesus Christ to every person we encounter.

OklahomaFAITHRiders.com is an online source of information for all F.A.I.T.H. Rider Chapters in the state of Oklahoma.

All F.A.I.T.H. Rider Chapters operate under the auspices of the National F.A.I.T.H. Riders Motorcycle Ministry originating in Lakeland Florida.www.faithriders.com

HISTORY

“We can do this.”

With those four simple words, two couples sought after the divine leading of God, said “Yes” to His will, and established a motorcycle ministry called F.A.I.T.H. Riders in February 2002 at First Baptist Church at the Mall in Lakeland, FL. What began as a four-person step of faith has grown into a team of many dedicated believers committed to the cause of Christ and to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ on and with their motorcycles to any that will listen. The ministry has expanded to over two hundred and forty five churches with more chapters getting ready to be born across the United States — chapters comprised of motorcycle riders and others passionate about sharing Christ with the World!

Each Commissioned Chapter of F.A.I.T.H. Riders has a special responsibility to “set the standard” for the Ministry. We only accomplish this through obedient surrender to the voice of the Father, and NOT by our own efforts.

The F.A.I.T.H. Riders  — Patch/Logo — consists of four primary colors and four symbols:

White
God’s light and glory, in which all darkness disappears and there are no shadows.

Red
The blood of Jesus, which cleanses the sinner of all sin and makes him or her the righteous saint of God because of its being shed at the Cross. Salvation to us is free, but its cost is priceless. It represents Jesus.

Blue
Regal, the color of royalty. Our sins cost the life of the King of Kings, and He gave it willingly so we could have the way to salvation. We are the only created being offered this gift.

Gold
Purity.  Gold can only be made pure by passing through a crucible’s fire until the impurities are removed and the goldsmith can see his reflection on the surface of the metal. This is a picture of what happens when a sinner passes through the blood of Jesus Christ.

The Cross
The symbol of where the Prince of Glory died. The Cross on our colors is empty—the price of salvation is paid in full. Our savior, Jesus Christ, ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He is our advocate to the Father, seeing that the covenant provisions are being ministered to us.

The Flag
One God; a nation set apart as long as we give glory to the God who blesses the nations.

The Stars
There are only seven complete stars in the blazon. Seven is a symbolic number in scripture that describes perfection and completeness. Everything in life is complete in Jesus Christ.

The Eagle
A bird of prey that represents power, justice, and God’s forthcoming wrath upon the unholy.

The F.A.I.T.H. Riders are made up of people from all areas of life, but we do have a common interest — enjoyment and enthusiasm for motorcycles, all makes and models. No matter what you ride – or even if you don’t – all are welcome.

What does F.A.I.T.H. stand for?

F is for Forgiveness. We cannot have eternal life and heaven without God’s forgiveness.

A is for Available. Forgiveness is available for all, but it is not automatic.

I is for Impossible. It is impossible for God to allow sin into heaven. It is also impossible to please God through our own actions.

T is for Turn. Turn means to repent from sin and self to Christ only.

H is for Heaven. Heaven is eternal life, here and now and in the hereafter – but only through Christ.  Forsaking all, I trust Him!

The Ministry of F.A.I.T.H. Riders

The command of God implores us as we “go into all the world we are to preach the Gospel to all creation” (Mark 16:15); the F.A.I.T.H. Riders take this calling seriously as the lifeblood of its existence and passion. This is a ministry, not a riding club or gang, and our sole purpose is to share the life-changing Good News by equipping the saints to engage in practical ministry opportunities.

Through the ministry of F.A.I.T.H. Riders, bikers and others are learning about Jesus Christ and receiving His awesome gift of salvation and eternal life in Heaven with Him. F.A.I.T.H. Riders is reaching people with their bikes who may not normally step foot into an organized church or Bible study. It’s putting rubber, as well as shoe leather, onto the Gospel message.
