WHAT MAKES FOC SO DIFFERENT?

We believe that the family is the building block of the church and society. The family is where Christianity begins. If our Christianity doesn't work in the home, it doesn't work at all. Our highest goal in life is to live before God, starting in our homes. If we can live the Christian life at home we can certainly live it in the world.

We believe in the need for the local church Just as a plant needs to remain in one place long enough to get its roots down before it will bear fruit, so must the Christian do likewise. Membership in a local church is absolutely necessary for accountability, growth, and promotion in the things of God. The times we live in dictate more than ever that we get our roots down into the Lord and in accountable relationships to prepare for the storms ahead of us.

We believe in “Christ-like-ness” and that the test of all ministry, all programs, all preaching, and all prophecy is: does it produce a desire and a hunger to become more like Jesus? God has predestined us to be conformed into the image of His Son. We must beware of the human inclination to just be informed and not transformed into His image.

We support and believe in lifestyle evangelism Statistics show that over 90 percent of all Christians were led to the Lord through a friend or relative. We do believe in and practice special evangelistic outreaches, but the heart of evangelism is individual Christians "going and telling" the people in their world about the saving knowledge of Jesus.

What time should I be there?

Our services start at 10:00am on Sunday morning so 9:45 is a good time to be there.

Our services are full of people from all walks of life. We are full of imperfect people who are being perfected by God's love.  We have singles, married couples, college students, young families and some seniors. We come in all shapes, sizes and colors.  We welcome and embrace ALL people at ALL times.

What will service be like?

Service will be fun, upbeat and inspirational. We start with prayer, lead by one of the FOC leaders. Next, there will be a time for corporate confessions followed by praise and worship, a welcome, and then the message. After the message there is the offering, then our invitation to salvation and partnership.

What can I expect from the message (sermon)?

At FOC, you can expect the message to be very practical and scripturally based. It will help you to apply scripture to your daily life in order to live out and experience God's best.

Will I be asked to give anything?

There will be a time in the service that we call our "opportunity for prosperity" where we receive an offering; however, you are not required to give anything.

We are called to assist people in becoming rooted, grounded and established in the Word of God by teaching them to give God's Word first place in their lives

We are called to build an army of mature believers, bringing them from infancy to maturity, from religion to reality. We are called to train them to become skillful in the word of righteousness and to stand firm in the spiritual warfare against the kingdom of darkness.

Giving


2 Cor. 9:6-7

Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

2 Cor. 9:6-7

"Give... money? Ummmm..."

Giving money. There is always a stigma around giving money. Whether it is for tithes, ministries, or even just giving up money for things like groceries, most people don't want to let go. We are attached to our money because it pays for the things that we need.

Giving is an expression of our love and trust in God. It is not a requirement, just an opportunity to honor Him. Aside from the supernatural results we will see in our own lives, we will also see lives changed around the world as we minister the Gospel of Grace. Your seeds help us feed the hungry, support orphanages, rebuild homes, dig wells, and broadcast the Changing Your World program to millions. Be confident that when you sow a seed into this ministry, it is sown in good ground and produces much fruit. Thank you for your support and partnership with FOC.

At Fellowship of Champions our mission is to help people live in God’s will in every area of his or her life, including finances. We want people to experience the freedom that comes through obedience and we have some great resources to help you understand the spiritual significance of giving. We also want to make giving more convenient for everyone. That’s why we’ve provided the option of giving online.

It’s exciting to experience God’s blessings in our lives as we give in obedience to Him, and to know that giving makes us part of the mission to help people discover that it’s not about a religion. It’s about a relationship! Thanks for being a part.
