This is Who We Are
Our congregation consists of people from all ages and backgrounds united in our love for Jesus Christ and our desire to see His Kingdom impact our city and beyond.
At FLC, church is more than checking a box. We gather to worship our King and encounter the presence of God. We believe church is the household of God with Him as our Father and therefore includes family and community. It is a place to be accepted as you are and equipped to become all God has purposed you to be.
To advance the Kingdom of God where we live and everywhere we go
As believers, we are ambassadors for the Kingdom of Heaven, to bring His world and accomplish His will here on the earth.
“Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” -Matthew 6:10, ESV
