MISSION, VISION, VALUES & BELIEFS

As a ministry, we base everything that we do off of our mission, vision, values and beliefs. Our beliefs are part of who we are as people, how we live our lives and where we place our hope. The values of our ministry are seen through every department and event at TFC. We genuinely believe that through prayer and proclamation of the Word, souls will come to be part of the kingdom of God. We then desire to see these believers grow in their relationship with Christ through discipleship and community. Christ is the center of all we do, and we desire to give God all the glory for everything that He has done in this ministry.

MISSION

Turning Teenagers Into Fully Committed Followers of Jesus Christ.

The “turning teenagers” part of our mission statement is about evangelism. We are passionate about proclaiming the Gospel. The “into fully committed followers of Jesus Christ” part of our mission statement is about discipleship. From the moment a teenager surrenders their life to Christ, we are committed to help them grow in their relationship with Jesus.

VISION

To Develop An Army To Impact The World For Jesus Christ.

Envision with us an army of Christ-followers who love God wholeheartedly and are willing to do anything God asks them to do to advance His kingdom. We believe young men and women are key to impacting the world for Christ. Our vision is to utilize both adults and youth to spread the Gospel and to disciple other believers.

Core Values

Our 5 core values drive all that we do.

Christ Centered

John 15:5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in Me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing.”

The importance of abiding in Christ and living life through Him is paramount. Our ministry strives to encourage the Christ-centered life.

Evangelism & Discipleship

Mark 16:15 “He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to all creation.”

Our compassion and anguish for the lost drives us. However, we are not just content with getting decisions for Christ. We thrive on discipleship with teenagers who consider themselves Christ-followers.

The Word of God

2 Timothy 3:16 “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness.”

We understand that the Word of God is absolute truth and vital to our lives. The Word of God demands to be the centerpiece of our teaching and study.

Prayer

Ephesians 3:20 “Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us.”

Prayer is powerful! Through prayer we enable God to speak to us and move through us.

God Gets All the Glory

Psalm 115:1 “Not to us, Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.”

God does great things because He is great. Even when He chooses to use us to accomplish His will, we strive to maintain a humble perspective on all the blessings and wonders we see in the ministry.

Beliefs

STATEMENT OF FAITH

1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God.

2. We believe that God exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

3. We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ: in His virgin birth, sinless life, vicarious and atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension, and personal bodily return.

4. We believe humanity to be fallen and depraved, needing the regenerating work of God’s Holy Spirit for salvation.

5. We believe every Christian to be empowered to live a Christ-honoring life by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

6. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved: they that are saved will be resurrected unto eternal life; they that are unsaved will be resurrected unto eternal damnation.

7. We believe in the spiritual unity of all members of Christ’s body.

8. We believe that God is the Creator of all heaven and earth.

DOCTRINAL STATEMENT

1. We teach the 66 books of the Bible to be the verbally and plenarily inspired Word of God in the original autographs. As such, it is both infallible and inerrant and the only infallible rule of faith and practice for Christians, both individually and corporately (Matt. 5:18; Jn. 10:35; 2 Tim. 3:16; Heb. 4:12; 2 Pet. 1:20-21).

2. We teach that there is only one God, perfect in all His attributes, eternally existing in three uncreated Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, each equally deserving full worship and obedience (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14).

3. We teach that Jesus Christ is the second Person of the Trinity, possessing all the divine excellencies, and in these He is coequal, consubstantial, and coeternal with the other Persons of the Trinity (Jn. 10:30, 14:9). In His incarnation, the eternally existing second Person of the Trinity accepted all the essential characteristics of humanity and so became the God-Man (Phil. 2:5-8; Col. 2:9). Furthermore, we teach that our Lord Jesus Christ was virgin-born (Matt. 1:23-25), that He was God in flesh (Jn. 1:1,14), that He lived a sinless life (Heb. 4:15), that He accomplished redemption through the shedding of His blood and sacrificial death on the cross, which was voluntary, substitutionary, propitiatory, and redemptive (Jn. 10:15; Rom. 3:24-25, 5:8; 1 Pet. 2:24), that He was resurrected from the grave and is now ascended to the right hand of the Father, where He now mediates as our Advocate and High Priest (Matt. 28:6; Luke 24:38-39; Acts 2:30-31; Heb. 7:25; 1 Jn. 2:1), and that He will return and establish His kingdom on earth and will judge all mankind (Jn. 5:22-23; Acts 1:9-11; I Cor. 3: 10-15; Rev. 20).

4. We teach that the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Trinity, being coequal and consubstantial with the Father and the Son (Matt. 28:19; Acts 5:3-4; 1 Cor. 12:4-6; 2 Cor. 13:14). The present ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify Christ by regenerating, indwelling, sanctifying, instructing, empowering and sealing (Jn. 16:13-16; Rom. 8:9; Eph. 1:13, 5:18; Titus 3:5).

5. We teach that the entire human race was created in the image of God and, as such, its chief end is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever (Gen. 1:26-27; Col. 1:16). However, when Adam sinned, the corrupted nature of Adam was transmitted to all people, the Lord Jesus Christ being the only exception (Gen. 3:1-19; Rom. 5:12-19). All men are sinners by nature and by choice (Rom. 3:9-23). With no recuperative powers to enable him to recover, mankind is hopelessly lost and his salvation is thereby wholly of God’s grace through the redemptive work of our Lord Jesus Christ (Eph. 2:1-3, 2:8-9). Those persons who die without saving faith in the redemption of Christ will be committed to an eternal, conscious punishment in the lake of fire (Rev. 20:11-15).

6. We teach that all who place their faith in Jesus Christ are immediately placed through the Holy Spirit into one unified spiritual body, the Church (1 Cor. 12:12-13), of which Christ is intimately connected as the Head (Col. 1:18). The establishment and continuity of local churches is the God – ordained method for propagating the gospel of Jesus Christ, and members of the spiritual body are directed to associate themselves together in local assemblies (Acts 20:17-18, Heb. 10:25). As such, this organization serves the church in presenting and propagating the faith, once for all, delivered to the saints.
