Faith Partners

Putting Your Faith in Action Through House-Building Partnerships

“We may disagree on all sorts of things. But thank God we can all agree that a nail and a hammer can be used as an instrument to manifest God’s love.” – Millard Fuller, founder of Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity was founded upon this concept — the theology of the hammer — that people of varying backgrounds can work together toward a shared goal, living out their faith and seeing God at work in the community. The theology of the hammer is about acknowledging our differences, whether they be political, religious, philosophical, theological or cultural, while finding common ground in the belief that we are all called to care for those in need.

Memphis Habitat invites congregations from all faiths to put their faith into action as Habitat house-building partners.
