About FACC​
Purpose and Mission Statement
Our purpose is to bring honor and glory to God our Father and His son Jesus (1 Corinthians 10:31), loving Him with all heart, mind, soul and strength, and loving our neighbors as ourselves (Luke 10:27) and fulfilling the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) through the enabling power of His Holy Spirit (Ezekiel 11:19-20).  Our church's particular equipping and calling within the Body of Christ is to people in our area with the good news of the Gospel, to build them up and establish them in faith.

Statement of Faith

The Scriptures:  The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God's revelation of Himself to man.  It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction.  It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter.  Therefore, all Scripture is totally true and trustworthy.  It reveals the principles by which God judges us, and therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried.  All Scripture is a testimony to Christ, who is Himself the focus of divine revelation.

God:  There is one and only one living and true God.  He is an intelligent, spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe.  God is infinite in holiness and all other perfections.  God is all powerful and all knowing; and His perfect knowledge extends to all things, past, present, and future, including the future decisions of His free creatures.  To Him we owe the highest love, reverence, and obedience.  The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence of being.

God the Father:  God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace.  He is all powerful, all knowing, all loving, and all wise.  God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ.  He is fatherly in His attitude toward all men.

God the Son:  Christ is the eternal Son of God.  In His incarnation as Jesus Christ He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.  Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God, taking upon Himself human nature with its demands and necessities and indentifying Himself completely with mankind yet without sin.  He honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and in His substitutionary death on the cross He made provision for the redemption of men from sin.  He was raised from the dead with a glorified body and appeared to His disciples as the person who was with them before His crucifixion.  He ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where He is the One Mediator, fully God, fully man, in whose Person is effected the reconciliation between God and man.  He will return in power and glory to judge the world and to consummate His redemptive mission.  He now dwells in all believers as the living and ever present Lord.

God the Holy Spirit:  The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, fully divine.  He inspired holy men of old write the Scriptures.  Through illumination He enables men to understand the truth.  He exalts Christ.  He convincts men of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment.  He calls men to the Savior, and effects regeneration.  The the moment of regeneration He baptizes every believer into the Body of Christ.  He cultivates Christian character, comforts believers, and bestows the spiritual gifts by which they serve God through His church.  He seals the believer unto the day of final redemption.  His presence in the Christian is the guarantee that God will bring the believer into teh fullness of the stature of Christ.  He enlightens and empowers the  believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and service.

Man:  Man is the special creation of God, made in His own image.  He created them male and female as the crowning work of His creation.  The gift of gender thus part of the goodness of God's creation.  In the beginning man was innocent of sin and was endowed by his Creator with freedom of choice.  By his free choice man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race.  Through the temptation of Satan man transgressed the command of God, and fell from his original innocence whereby his posterity inherit a nature and an environment inclined toward sin.  Therefore, as soon as they are capable of moral action, they become transgressors and are under condemnation.  Only the grace of God can bring man into His holy fellowship and enable man to fulfill the creative purpose of God.  The sacredness of human personality is evident in that God created man in His own image, and in that Christ died for man; therefore, every person of every race possesses full dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love.

Salvation:  Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer.  In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification.  There is no salvation apart from the personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.

The Church:  The church is the Body of Christ which includes all of the redeemed of all the ages, believers from every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation.  Within this worldwide church, God has also ordained local congreations of believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel; exalting and observing the ordinances of Christ, governed by His laws, exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word for teh building up of the body, and seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth.  In such a congreation, each member is responsible and accountable to Christ as Lord.

Baptism and Lord's Supper:  Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer's death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the ressurection of the dead.  Being a church ordinance, it is prerequisite to the privileges of church membership.  The Lord's Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members of the church, together with all who confess, believe and follow our Lord Jesus, through partaking of the bread and the fruit of the vine, memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.
