Fe Viva (Faith Alive) is dedicated to bringing Christ, love, hope, education, leadership programs, community development and support to countries like Guatemala and Nicaragua. Our programs have helped many children and adults with a better understanding of what Christ's love is like while giving them education and a better life through ’smokeless’ stoves and clean water.

Kim & Lynn Weiler
President & Founders of Fe Viva World Missions
In 1995 we left Canada with our three children to pioneer a work in Guatemala. Since then the work has grown to include many distinct ministries directed by a wonderful team of missionaries and Guatemalan staff. God continues to increase our vision to include greater education opportunities for the community and a multi-purpose ‘Park’ with a commercial size playground, regulation size soccer field and large meeting facility.

Statement of Faith
In one true and living God externally existing and revealed to us as the Father, creator of all living things: the Son, Jesus Christ, God incarnate; and the Holy Spirit.
In the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, death for our sins, bodily resurrection, ascension under God, and imminent return in power and glory.
The Holy Scriptures are the inspired and complete revelation of God’s will concerning man’s salvation through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
That men are saved solely through faith in God’s grace as displayed in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
In water baptism as a public declaration that a believer has died with Christ and risen with Him to walk a life of holiness and love.
In the unity of all true believers as members of the universal body of Christ regardless of denominational affiliation.
In the celebration of the Lord’s Supper as a remembrance of Jesus.
In the ministry of the Holy Spirit: By the inward witness of salvation to the believer. By daily guidance and growth of Christ-like character. By the baptism of the Holy Spirit, an experience distinct from and following the new birth, evidenced initially by speaking with other tongues, and subsequently by the manifestation of spiritual power in public testimony and service. By the manifestation of the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit. I Cor.12:8-10
That Jesus Christ is coming again to gather all His saints unto Himself. Those who have not accepted His redemptive work on their behalf will suffer separation from the Godhead eternally.
That following His return, Jesus Christ will rule and reign for one thousand years on earth. After this there will be a new heaven and a new earth where all believers will be with Him forever.
