Code 12

1. Obedience to the Will and Word of God is Supreme Above All Things.
(Matthew 6:33, John 14:15-24)

Faith Community Church intentionally endeavors to reflect the model of ministry outlined for us in the 66 books that make up the bible. Our goal is to ensure that FCC’s model of ministry reflects a biblical model of ministry as closely as we possibly can.

2. We do Ministry to Reach People, not Please People. (Galatians 1:10, Colossians 3:23)

Everything we do at FCC is to reach people far from God and make disciples of those that we reach. WE WILL NOT compromise our mission of reaching R.E.A.L. People by catering to personal preference. There are no sacred cows allowed.

3. We Will Step Out of the Boat. (2 Corinthians 5:7)

At FCC we WILL do ministry by FAITH. We believe that if we want to walk on water then we have to trust God enough to step out of the boat. We refuse to allow what we see to get in the way of what God has said. We will set impossible goals and take bold steps of faith towards those goals trusting that Jesus will meet us out there on the water. NO SMALL THINKING ALLOWED.

4. Numbers Matter. (Genesis 1:28)

Faith Community Church is all about the numbers! Counting and tracking metrics is one of the ways FCC measures our effectiveness. From the number of people that give their lives to Jesus to the number of people that serve the house on any given Sunday, FCC is always counting. Ultimately, “counting” is a form of biblical stewardship.

5. Everybody Is Gifted (1 Corinthians 12:1, Ephesians 2:10, 4:7)

At FCC we believe that according to scripture, everyone has been endowed with gifts and talents that will enable them to accomplish their God given purpose. We also believe that it’s the calling and responsibility of the church to help people not only discover their gifts, but to help them cultivate and maximize those gifts.

6. If You’re Not Serving You’re Swerving. (Ephesians 4:11-16)

At FCC we believe that becoming a mature disciple of Jesus Christ is directly connected to serving one another in Kingdom building disciple making ministry. That’s why we are passionate about helping people discover their God given gifts and then giving them opportunities to use those gifts for God in practical and tangible ways.

7. Honor Is the Attitude of the House. (1 Peter 2:17)

At FCC We will intentionally cultivate a culture of honor. We will choose to see the best in one another as well as recognize the potential within the REAL People that God brings to us. We will speak life, not death, we speak vision rather than division over one another’s lives.

8. We Are United Under One Vision and Mission. (John 17:23)

Faith Community Church is built upon the vision that God wrote upon the heart of Bishop Travis Hall. We will aggressively defend our unity and the vision of seeing 5,000 people worshipping God, walking with God, and working for God every weekend at an FCC campus. We will equally defend our mission of being a R.E.A.L. Church touching the lives of R.E.A.L. People.

9. We “Get Ready” to “Stay Ready” (Isaiah 54:2-3)

By faith, FCC will continually structure our ministry for where we want to go rather than where we are now. In every single ministry at FCC we will pray, plan, and prepare for the hundreds and then thousands of souls that God is sending to us for the sake of their salvation and restoration.

10. We NEVER Stop Learning. (Proverbs 4:7)

At FCC we believe that Leaders are Learners. We will never stop learning how to better reach people who are far from God and then make disciples of those we reach. We will seek to learn from other leaders, churches, and Kingdom minded ministries in order to become the best REAL church we can possibly be.

11. No Volunteers Allowed. (Mark 9:35)

Jesus didn’t’ say that “The greatest among you shall be volunteer of all.” He said that the greatest among you must be SERVANT of all.” Far too often a volunteer mindset is one that seems to think “the church is lucky just to get any of my time at all” not realizing that God doesn’t call volunteers, He calls servants. Servanthood is an attitude of action and excellence. Servants realize that everything they do, they do for the glory of God which is why it deserves excellence. Servants are always on time and they give God their very best their words, actions, and attitude.

12. Reached People Reach People (Luke 14:23, Acts 1:8)

You don’t have to have the gift of evangelism to reach people. Once we’ve inherited this amazing gift of salvation, it then becomes our responsibility to share that gift with the people that God places in our paths. Kingdom multiplication happens when reached people reach people.
