How to Join FFC
How to join Faith Fellowship Church:
The Bible, through both Jesus Christ and NT epistle writers, points out that active membership of a local church body is necessary for believer’s encouragement, protection, and instruction. At Faith Fellowship Church (FFC), we have adopted the term “Committed Broken Servants” or “CBSers” in lieu of the term “membership”. As we use the term CBSers it reminds us of who we are: committed to following Jesus Christ, broken by our personal sin; fully reliant on God’s grace; and servants of our Lord and Master Jesus Christ. We seek to carry out this vision through the following process, by which CBSers become part of FFC.
Intro to FFC Classes:
We welcome everyone to attend "Intro to FFC". It is a 13 week series, offered during 9:30am Bible Classes on Sunday mornings. During these classes, the “Intro to FFC” curriculum is studied.
We like to have everyone in the class present every week. Faithfulness is evidence of God’s Spirit bearing fruit in a life. However, we recognize the possibility of circumstances that result in the need to make up a class. Those who miss a class are responsible to obtain that class’s CD (available by marking feedback slip or emailing a request to ), to listen and fill in the blanks of the “Intro to FFC” curriclum, and to complete the assigned reading.
Those who have completed the classes are able, but not obligated, to join FFC. The next step would be a “Committed Broken Servant Interview” with an elder.
Junior Committed Broken Servants
Those ages 12-17 may become JR.CBSers, until age 18 when they complete the process as an adult.
Committed Broken Servant Interview:
The prospective CBSer meets with a pastor or elder to provide basic biographical information and recount God’s converting work in his/her life. After signing the Church Covenant, the prospective CBSer may move to the next step: elder recommendation.
At a regularly scheduled elders’ meeting, the pastors and elders review the applicants’ testimony. Upon receiving their collective approval, the candidate’s application proceeds to the next step: congregational affirmation.
During a CBS Testimony night, the elders guide the applicants desiring to become CBSers to share their testimony in front of the congregation. At a following service, a pledge is made between the body and those being admitted into membership.
