VISION + MISSION
Our vision is to be a kingdom-driven, multiracial, multi-generational community of believers, whose aim is to exalt Heaven’s truth as the only light in a dark world by exalting our only Lord and Majesty Jesus Christ.
At FHC, our mission is to proclaim Christ to all by purpose-driven discipleship, while achieving the goal of biblical transformation.
FHC is a place where the genuine comfort, care, and transformation of our members is our highest aim. We pledge to provide the finest personal service and facilities for our members, who will always enjoy a pleasant, caring, and refined ambience.
At FHC, our members are the most important resource in our service commitment to God’s people. By applying the principles of accountability, excellence, family, integrity, and service, we nurture and maximize servanthood to the benefit of each member and the organization. FHC fosters an environment where diversity is valued, quality of life is enhanced, individual aspirations are fulfilled, and the FHC heart is strengthened.
We believe in the absolute inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, given by the Holy Spirit without error, as He moved upon holy men of old. Furthermore, we believe that the church has no authority to establish doctrine or practices contrary to those same scriptures.
MADE IN GOD’S IMAGE
We believe that man was made in the image of God and is the crown of creation. He is, prior to salvation and by reason of The Fall, spiritually depraved and alienated from his Creator.
We believe that justification is by grace, through faith in our Lord’s sacrifice on Calvary, and that no one is justified by keeping the law.
We believe that all of God’s people are to be buried and resurrected with Christ through water baptism, following conversion.
We believe in the priesthood of the believer. That is to say, all people born of God have equal status before, and direct access to, their Lord.
We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is an enduement of power subsequent to conversion, given by God to anoint the believer for sanctification and evangelism. It is our understanding that the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit are active within the body of Christ until the coming of the Lord. Furthermore, we believe the development of these gifts ought to be encouraged, under the guidance of local church authorities.
We believe that divine healing, and even more importantly, divine health, are provided to every believer through the shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that marriage is God’s institution, a sacred union between a man and a woman. Click here for scripture references.
We believe the callings of apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, and teacher are functioning within the body of Christ until the Lord’s return. These ministries are gifts to the church for the purpose of equipping the saints for the work of ministry, that the body of Christ may be edified.
We believe in the literal second coming of our Lord, the literal rule of Christ upon the earth, the resurrection of the regenerated to eternal life and the unregenerate to eternal damnation, and the ultimate victory of the eternal kingdom of God.
