FCC is a proud member of the Church of the Nazarene, which is a Protestant Christian church in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition. Organized in 1908, the denomination is home to roughly 2.5 million members worshipping in 162 world areas.
As a part of the Church of the Nazarene we seek to be:
A CHRISTIAN PEOPLE
We join with the church universal in proclaiming the Lordship of Jesus Christ and in embracing the historic Trinitarian statements of Christian faith. We value our Wesleyan-Holiness heritage and believe it to be a way of understanding the faith that is true to Scripture, Reason, Tradition, and Experience.
A HOLINESS PEOPLE
God, who is holy, calls us to a life of holiness. We believe that the Holy Spirit seeks to cleanse us from all sin, renew us in the image of God; empowering us to love God with our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves; and produces in us the character of Christ.
A MISSIONAL PEOPLE
We are a sent by God to be his representatives in the world. In response to the call of Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit we witness to the Lordship of Jesus, and participate with God in building His kingdom in every place and space we find ourselves. We believe some women and men are called specifically to vocational ministry while ALL people are called to be God’s ministers in their life context.
