The pastors and elders of FFC discuss various topics and passages of Scripture.
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.
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.
Does Scripture back up the things we do like church membership, church discipline, and wolves among the flock? We'll take a look at what God's Word says about each of these topics in this short 3-week miniseries.
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.
These are messages that don't belong to any particular series. We hope you're challenged and encouraged by them!
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).
It’s sometimes helpful to go back and review the basics. This is what our current 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!
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.
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.
