To be a Multigenerational, Family Integrated, Great Commandments & Great Commission Church.
Fathers baptizing their own children as the priests of their families is one of the special blessings and traditions at GFFC.
To be a Church Committed to:
1. Real Life Love Relationships with Christ.
Lived out by (a) individual prayer and personal Bible study, (b) The giving of time, talents, & treasures, (c) Trust in God and (d) Faithful obedience to His commands.
2. Family Integrated Discipleship, Starting in our Homes & Spreading to the World.
We are committed to challenging husbands and fathers to be the spiritual leaders of their families (Josh. 24:17; Eph. 6:4).
We are committed to providing parents the resources & encouragement to equip them to disciple their children at home throughout the week (Deut. 6:6-7).
Parental involvement is required for most of our children’s events and activities. If a child’s parent(s) is unchurched, then a family at GFFC will provide spiritual covering and mentoring, with the goal of reaching the child’s parent(s) for Christ.
3. Evangelism & Missions, Both Locally & Globally, Using All Available Tools & Resources to Spread the Gospel.
We will use the internet for outreach, with the goal of hosting a global network of home churches.
We will develop strategic partnerships with those committed to the Great Commission and Acts 1:8.
We will pray, give, and go.
4. Every Member Being Engaged in Ministry.
Regardless of age or experience, every member has been gifted by the Holy Spirit to serve Christ and others (Eph. 2:10, 4:11-12).Therefore, each member is expected to be an active minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
5. Edifying Fellowship.
We will enjoy godly fellowship through eating, playing, and laughing together on a regular basis, as well as through special events designed to get us talking and sharing with each other.
