Zoe International Faith Center is a non-denominational church focused on making a positive impact upon our community by creating a worship center where all individuals can grow in faith and discover God’s plan for their lives. Together, we’re striving to become the kind of church described in the Bible—a church with relevant teaching, heart-felt worship, honest friendships, constant prayer, and compassionate care for those in need. In essence, we are people living life God’s way!
Zoe International Faith Center was birthed by Pastor Esau Waters. Pastor Esau and his family returned from the Netherlands where they lived for five years and established “New Beginnings International Ministry” located across the border in Geilenkirchen, Germany. He returned to the US with a vision burning on the inside of him.
Upon retirement from the Air Force, Pastor Waters began to lay the necessary foundation for the ministry by writing the vision, statement of faith, mission statement, and goals. The inspiration for the ministry’s name came from John 10:10b “I come that you may have life (Zoe) and that more abundantly” to which he added ‘Faith Center’ – “a place of training, nurturing, building, and equipping.”
The church began meeting at Onething Prayer Center in Brandon, Florida for prayer and Bible study in Oct 2011. On Sept 30, 2012, Zoe had their first worship service with 32 people in attendance.
