YOUNG BELIEVERS 
MISSION STATEMENT

The Children Formation Ministry assists FFCC children in finding God in their lives and to grow in their  awareness of God’s great love for them through Jesus Christ, with the help of volunteers from the community. The Children Formation Ministry, guided by the Holy Spirit, helps in preparing Christ-like leaders and  instruments of hope, to support FFCC’s vision and mission to be a community of disciples on mission.

FFCC Children Formation Ministry believes that:

  • Children are a real gift from the Lord

  • Jesus calls even the little children to have this special relationship with him

  • Children can grow in their love and trust for God through a meaningful relationship
    with parents and other kids in community

  • In training up the children in the ways of the Lord they will be responsible at home
    and in school

  • Children need a healthy concept of themselves, which may be enhanced
    by their parents as primary role models and also by secondary role models
    from the FFCC community

  • Our children’s God-given gifts and talent s need to be recognized and nurtured in
    a healthy Christian environment that is fun and life-giving.
