About FCC - Our Objectives
The program at FCC is designed to help you mature intellectually, socially, and spiritually, thereby preparing you for more effective Christian service. Intellectually you will be challenged through exposure to three kinds of courses: Biblical, humanities, and ministerial. Courses taught in the Division of Bible enable you to appreciate, understand, and defend the Word of God. The Division of Humanities provides courses to help you to understand and relate to culture. Courses in the Division of Ministry equip you with the skills of communication and leadership necessary to engage in a church- or school-related vocation.
Social maturity is enhanced through apartment living, athletic events, involvement in congregational life, and planned social activities. Through these experiences, you will learn the arts of patience, self-control, and social adjustment; demonstrate qualities of leadership as well as the grace of being a good follower; employ proper etiquette, appropriate dress, and personal hygiene; manifest proper respect for and ability to relate to the opposite sex; practice principles of group dynamics, problem solving and planning; and experience competition in the context of higher Christian values.
Your spiritual growth is fostered by the weekly Family Worship Hour, weekly Discipleship Groups, special programs throughout the year, and participation in local church activities. Through these activities you will develop the practice of regular corporate worship, be able to discern appropriate music for public worship, be involved in personal devotions, be able to cope with spiritual low-points more adequately, and be able to demonstrate spiritual maturity in interpersonal relationships.
