This Summer, we’ll be starting a new series as a follow-up to the evangelism series we did in January called Intentional Discipleship for Normal People. Our goal in this series is to see every FFCer embrace a continuously multiplying lifestyle of discipleship on both ends—discipling and being discipled. This is an audacious goal, but one that is commanded by Jesus in Matthew, modeled by the apostles in Acts, and patterned by church elders in 2 Timothy.
Starting Sep. 10, we'll be returning to our series in the Samuels. Israel’s history is more than military conquest in chronological sequence. It is messianic prophecy in narrative form. In “The kings and the King,” we’ll see anticipation of Christ woven throughout the book of 2 Samuel. Find more sermons from this series here.
In a time when people are believing anything, or sometimes nothing at all, God’s people are radically different. We believe God’s Word. But just what are those core doctrines in God’s Word that we believe? How should they affect us? What does it mean to build your life around absolute truth and not changing opinions? Discover this and more in FFC’s summer series, “Doctrine that Goes the Distance,” beginning June 4!
It’s sometimes helpful to go back and review the basics. This is what our upcoming series, Christianity 101, is intended to do. During this series, we’ll explore some of the basic doctrines of Christianity that are the very building blocks of our faith. We’ll begin with the gospel itself, and finish with the return of the Lord Jesus!
Israel's biblical history is more than military conquest in chronological sequence. It is messianic prophecy in narrative form. This is especially and beatifully seen in the books of 1-2 Samuel, 1-2 Kings, and 1-2 Chronicles. Prepare to enjoy the adventure of the Old Testament in our 2017 series, "The kings and the King," and appreciate anew the anticipation of Christ woven throughout each of these historical books.
It’s more than just a day, and surely more than a holiday. But why? What sets Christmas day apart? The beauty of Christmas day lies not in what we do or how we do it, not in what we give or how we give it. In fact, it’s uniqueness does not rest in anything related to us. Christmas day is precisely Christ’s day, the day we celebrate who was "born to us in the city of David.” And who was born that day? No doubt a baby. For sure a Savior. Thankfully the long waited one, the promised Christ. Jesus. The Lord.
Join us throughout December as we study Luke chapter 2 in a series called "Born This Day."
In three powerfully pointed chapters, Paul provided for Titus the basic how-to manual for the church at Crete. It’s relevant and authoritative for us today as well, describing and prescribing God’s instructions for his Son’s body, the church. Join us this November for Church 101—and watch yourself grow in your commitment to live a fully faithful life as a member in God’s family.
With so much uncertainty and hostility all around us, have you ever wondered, "What now?" Maybe, after seeing increased local and global persecution, you've thought, "What's a Christian to do?" Take heart—fellow believers in Thessalonica had similar thoughts in the first century, and the Apostle Paul, inspired by the Holy Spirit, wrote to encourage them how to live in their crumbling culture in light of their coming Christ. This September and October we will be gleaning these practical and powerful principles in our series, "While We Wait: Exhortations from 2 Thessalonians," digging our feet deep into endurance and obedience as we await our Lord's return.
