The FLC Vision -
We are deeply committed to our Savior Jesus Christ - desiring to lengthen and strengthen His Kingdom through worship and caring groups.
Lengthening means extending the Kingdom of our Savior through evangelistic or “missional” activities. “How can we connect broken people to a healing Jesus?” needs to be the backdrop for every activity and encounter.
Strengthening means providing every support possible for the personal spiritual growth of those who have already been won for eternity.
Word - We believe that like God, His Word does not change. Furthermore, it is of the utmost importance that the good news of salvation contained in this Word be kept not only pure, but also be spread to others in the most meaningful ways possible. God's Word is not just something offered and believed, but also something to be lived.
Outreach - The Lord has given His Church one “great commission” - seek and save the spiritually lost. This is our foremost task while on earth.
Service - We love God by loving and caring for those whom He's placed around us.
Excellence - In every aspect of ministry, there is no excuse for anything but the highest quality of which we are capable - the very best of which we are capable - and that we must continually seek to improve everything we do.
Spiritual Growth - Faith that does not grow becomes stagnant and can die. Growing to spiritual maturity is essential for everyone.
Prayer - The Lord blesses prayer beyond what we can imagine, according to His infinite power and love.
Generosity - Contributing to the work of the Kingdom from “first-fruits” is both the privilege and duty of every Christian. To do this requires faith that God will bless what is gladly given with an abundant harvest of souls.
Accountability - Personal and mutual accountability builds mutual trust. Clarifying and respecting boundaries, doing what we say we're going to do, and following through are all extremely important for building Christian relationships.
Teamwork - We are “the body of Christ.” Bodies function best when each part works cooperatively with the rest of the body, using the gifts we've been given by God. We are inter-dependent, not independent of one another.
