The Way We Express Church:

We believe that Church isn’t a place you go, it’s who we are as followers of Jesus Christ together before the Lord.  While buildings are helpful we are the Church wherever we may be, whether the lunchroom, the breakroom or the living room.  The Church is called to be in unity with one another (Jn. 17:23), to pray always (Lk. 18:1) and to advance the Kingdom of God in our generation (Mt. 6:9-10).  As part of His Church we want to provide the context for people to flourish in community, in a lifestyle of prayer and in discipleship.

The Bible is the foundation of our faith and our pursuit of Jesus, we believe that it is true and that we can apply its teachings to our daily lives.  So we want the Bible to be the basis of our life together.  We also want for each of us to use our gifts, strengths, experiences and wisdom to benefit others in our congregation.  Sunday mornings are an opportunity for all of us to be together and see what the Holy Spirit does through us to give to, receive from and serve one another.  FF Sunday mornings are a sweet time of worship, Bible instruction, ministry and fellowship together.  For years our pastor has been praying that being at church on Sundays would be everyone’s favorite part of the week, the thing that we look forward to all week long.  We think we’ve got a pretty good thing going here, come check it out for yourself.


Authentic relationships are central to what it means to be the Church; at FF we really value having people to walk together with through the ups and downs of life.  Many believers are lonely and lack authentic relationships; this is why we place great emphasis on being part of a small group.  These groups aren’t for theological training, they’re family; the people that you do life with.  They’re made up of normal people like you that are learning to serve each other like family.  They help one another and eat together; they encourage each other and fight to keep their relationships strong in the midst of all that life throws at us.  Our small group leaders are the heroes of our church.  They are the ones involved in the day-to-day lives of our people and through these invaluable relationships they are uniquely equipped to pastor the needs of those they lead.  


We think prayer is essential to the life of every believer and that if we actually have real prayer lives we'd all be far better off, as individuals and as the Church at large.  We see that believers with deep, meaningful, regular connection times with Jesus hear His voice better, love Him more, strive to live godly lives and more readily give themselves to serve God’s purposes above their own.  We approach the subject of discipleship with all this in mind and so we are striving to be a community that prays together as part of our lifestyle.  We are blessed to have a deep relationship with a house of prayer in the Arlington area (The Prayer Room) where we can do just that.  We’ve decided to partner with them by having our people each pick a weekly prayer time to spend there reaching for Jesus and trying to develop actual prayer lives.


Our Distinct Flavor:
Our congregation is made up of mostly young adults and families with young children all doing life together.  We're a lot of fun, we are playful and sometimes ridiculous, we eat donuts before service, we are serious about the Bible, serious about relationships and serious about prayer.  We believe that doing life together in this way creates a well balanced environment for us to mature in our walks with Jesus and enjoy life together.  So we strongly encourage all our people to participate the three expressions listed above.  FF has a specific flavor, a flavor that we feel very strongly the Lord gave to us to fulfill our small role in His Church.
