FFC Leadership   -  

Our Mission
To develop devoted followers of Jesus Christ who celebrate, grow, and serve for the glory of God.

Our Values

  • We value people, and believe they matter to God so much that He invites them and us to participate with Him in helping everyone who will repent and believe to become part of His family, both universally and locally. This means the church is not just a nice idea, but a necessary ingredient.  (Luke 19:10; Hebrews 10:25)
  • We value the church’s role and responsibility to guard, teach and practice the “sound doctrine” given through the apostles and prophets under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. While being culturally relevant is a worthy goal, we are more consumed with remaining doctrinally pure. (Ephesians 2:19-22; 1 Timothy 4:6-16; 6:11-21)
  • We value the church as a spiritual family and, as members in it, seek to provide strength, comfort, fellowship, encouragement, and inspiration. Likewise, membership in this family means commitment to Christ and His Body with our time, service, finances and prayers. (1 Corinthians 12:12-13)
  • We value intentional and proactive evangelism, and believe the church should utilize every available means to reach a city, a nation, and a world. Global impact is a natural overflow of a healthy church. (Matthew 28:19, 20; 1 Corinthians 9:19-23)
  • We value God-ordained leadership, and will always honor our church leaders who mobilize, equip, and release believers to serve in their area of giftedness. Building a solid staff team of equippers is a priority at First Family Church. (Ephesians 4:11-13)
  • We value spiritual maturity and the spiritual gifts given to every believer which are used to build the body of Christ. The church should be operated by mature Christians utilizing their spiritual gifts. (1 Peter 4:7; 2 Peter 3:18; Romans 12:4-5)
  • We value a job well done and strive to express excellence in all aspects of ministry, which is simply doing your best with what you have while at the same time seeking ways in which you can do it better and more effectively. This honors God and inspires people. (Colossians 3:17)
  • We value biblical homes and strong, united families. Whether you have a home of one or a family of five, living by the principles of God’s Word enables those under your roof to have maximum impact where it matters most: inside your own house! (Ephesians 5:31)
