Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA)

Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA)

Welcome to the FCA Club at Broad Creek Middle School


I. What is the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA)?

FCA is a Christ-centered, Bible-based ministry for young people.

II. FCA's Vision

FCA's vision is "To see the world impacted for Jesus Christ through the influence of athletes and coaches." Since every student at BCMS takes P.E., in a sense, the entire student body at BCMS are athletes. As coaches (advisors) of FCA, we believe that God can use the FCA to minister to each student athlete, one heart at a time, helping them become everything that He has called them to be.

III. FCA's Mission

FCA's mission statement is "To present to athletes and coaches , and all whom they influence, the challenge and adventure of receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, serving Him in their relationships and in the fellowship of the church." FCA invites young people to begin a personal relationship with Christ and a life-long journey of learning and growing in Christ. The FCA aids students in maintaining or restoring Godly relationships which are centered on prayer, obedience and service to Christ.

IV. Our Statement of Faith

FCA's Statement of Faith helps us keep Christ the center of our ministry with a clear

understanding of what we believe. As a ministry, we focus on what we agree on, not

what we disagree about. FCA does not deal with doctrinal differences like the gifts

of the Spirit and baptism. This allows us to be inter-denominational while keeping

Christ at the core of our ministry.

  1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

  2. We believe that there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)

  3. We believe in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through his shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Deity - John 1:1, 14); (Atonement - Hebrews 9:15-22); (Virgin Birth - Matthew 1:18, 25); (Bodily Resurrection - 1 Corinthians 15:18); (Sinless Life - Hebrews 4:15); (Personal Return - Hebrews 9:27-28)

  4. We believe that for the Salvation of lost and sinful men (and women), regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. (John 3:16; John 5:24; Titus 3:3-7)

  5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (John 14:15-26; John 16:5-16; Ephesians 1:13, 14)

  6. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost - the saved unto the resurrection of life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (Matthew 25:31-46, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

  7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Philippians 2:1-4)
