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 2017–2018 series, "The kings and the King," and appreciate anew the anticipation of Christ woven throughout each of these historical books.
Few people ever call their church leaders "soul watchers," but that is precisely what they are! Just what does this mean and how is it done? Listen in as Todd takes two weeks to discuss both the accounting aspect, as well as the advantage aspect, of soul watching, unpacking this first-century phrase that gets to the heart of the matter for both the shepherds and sheep at First Family Church.
From time to time, we have the chance to be blessed by special speakers at FFC. We hope you'll enjoy these special messages!
This topical series is aimed at helping us make serious and observable progress in our spiritual growth. We'll do this by identifying 6 major strongholds that keep us from growing and maturing, and keep a majority of professing Christians in bondage, spiritually immature and selfish.
This series is a follow-up to the series we did called Intentional Evangelism for Normal People. You can check out those sermons here. Our primary goal with this series is to see every FFCer connected to/embrace a continuously multiplying lifestyle of discipleship on both ends—discipling and being discipled. Or, to say it another way, we long to see every FFCer connected to a discipling relationship on both ends — discipling and being discipled—in a multiplicational and continuous fashion. 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.
The pastors and elders of FFC discuss various topics and passages of Scripture.
The guest speaker for our 2018 Men's Conference was Pastor Paul Miller of Cornerstone Community Church in Chariton, IA. The focus of this conference was how men can hit the mark as husbands, dads, leaders, and members of the community. Learn from the Old Testament book of Joshua what you must do to leave a godly legacy.
Rooted in Acts 17, Todd helps us form a truly theological basis for sharing the gospel with others, speaks about frequency of sharing, and urges us to create room for interruptions.
The Bible teaches us of two ordinances that the church is to observe until the Lord Jesus Christ returns: Baptism and Communion. These straightforward messages detail the ordinance aimed at the individual (baptism) and the ordinance aimed at the body of Christ as a whole (communion).
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." For series resources, visit firstfamily.church/doctrine-resources.
