The Industry of Faith - Louisiana, is a Christ centered organization that was created in 2017 for networking and encouragement for those in and affected by the Oil, Gas and Chemical Industries in the State of Louisiana.
The industry has not been the same for the past couple of years, with significant downturn in natural gas and oil prices, COVID-19 and other new regulations put on the industry. This has made it even more difficult for companies to do business here in Louisiana.
With other factors affecting our way of life, the time has come for us, in this industry, to seek council and wisdom from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
James 1:5 “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.”
Proverbs 1:7 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
There are hundreds of men and women across this state unemployed in our industry, and in need of employment. There are many others who are employed, but in need of encouragement, and a way to stay positive in these troubled times. We believe that gathering in His name is a great place to start.
2 Chronicles 7:14 "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land."
What We Believe:
We believe the Holy Bible to be the Holy Spirit inspired, authoritative Word of God.
We believe that there is one God, who exists in the Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
We believe the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that salvation is by grace, through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe the sanctity of human life and that life begins at the moment of conception.
We hold monthly meetings with those who are involved in the Oil and Gas Industry. People can come and fellowship, network, hear an encouraging message from a local speaker, as we pray for our country, our state, and our industry.
Companies are invited and encouraged to come in and sponsor a meeting. They will have an opportunity to give a brief overview of what they do in the industry and answer questions from attendees.
Those just looking for new opportunities are encouraged to come and share resumes and talk with others about possible employment opportunities.
Matthew 18:20 "For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them."
