Why We Exist
We exist to be a beacon of light in the community where people: Find Freedom through a Relationship with Christ, Truly Know God, Love People, Give Generously, and Serve Jesus. Free City Church is a place committed to bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the unbeliever. We are focused on preaching, teaching, and living out the Gospel.
Helping you build and grow a relationship with Jesus Christ is our top priority. When you attend one of our services, you will find that it will always be designed to do just that. We’re not here to put on a show. Rather we are here to learn and worship right alongside you. Our services are just one of the places where you can find the only true Freedom that exist. Freedom through a relationship with Christ.
As the body of Christ, God has called us to Love People. We Love People by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We Love People, by not judging them in anyway. We Love People by extending a hand, so that we can be friends. We Love People, because God loved us first. We Love People like crazy.
We act like Jesus, because he lives in us and through us. So we Serve Jesus by volunteering. We Volunteer in our Church and our Church volunteers in the community. At Free City Church service is at the core of who we are. We are a church where everyone has something to contribute. We will help the poor, feed the hungry, and care for children. When we serve our community, we are Serving Jesus. We are Faithful and Joyful servants. One of the ways we worship at Free City Church is through serving.
One of the best ways to truly Know (Gain Knowledge about) God, is to have people in your life that are at all stages of that same journey. Connecting with others at Free City through Life Groups is a very practical and fun way of learning about and living out a Christian life. It is a safe place for you to ask questions, have doubts, and grow at your own pace. Like all of Free City Church Life Groups will always be a Judgment free zone.
It cost nothing to share Jesus. So we Give Generously. We Give Generously to the church, so that together we can make a difference. We Give Generously to God because he has given us everything.
Free City Church is a place that values diversity. We do not desire to simply look diverse. We desire to appreciate and celebrate the many cultures and ethnicities that God has blessed us with. Men and Women of every ethnic and cultural background will always be welcome and we are committed to creating safe spaces for the mentally and physically differently abled individuals and families.
What we Believe
The Word of God
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons, that these are equal in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption.
God the Father
We believe in God, the Father, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of all people, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal visible return to earth.
The Holy Spirit
We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, and that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide.
We believe that all people are sinners by nature and by choice and are, therefore, under condemnation. We believe that those who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ as Savior are regenerated by the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the universal church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members. We believe in the local church, consisting of a company of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized on a credible profession of faith, and associated for worship, work and fellowship. We believe that God has laid upon the members of the local church the primary task of giving the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world.
We believe that Christians should live for the glory of God and the well-being of others; that their conduct should be blameless before the world; that they should be faithful stewards of their possessions; and that they should seek to realize for themselves and others the full stature of maturity in Christ.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has committed two ordinances to the local church: baptism and the Lord's Supper. We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water into the name of the triune God. We believe that the Lord's Supper was instituted by Christ for commemoration of His death. We believe that these two ordinances should be observed and administered until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that every human being has direct relations with God, and is responsible to God alone in all matters of faith; that each church is independent and must be free from interference by any ecclesiastical or political authority; that therefore Church and State must be kept separate as having different functions, each fulfilling its duties free from dictation or patronage of the other.
We believe that local churches can best promote the cause of Jesus Christ by cooperating with one another in a denominational organization. Such an organization, whether it is the Conference or a district conference, exists and functions by the will of the churches. Cooperation in a conference is voluntary and may be terminated at any time. Churches may likewise cooperate with interdenominational fellowships on a voluntary independent basis.
The Last Things
We believe in the personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth and the establishment of His kingdom. We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the eternal felicity of the righteous, and the endless suffering of the wicked.
