Romans 12:2 (The Message)
"Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you."
It isn’t about bottom line like Wall Street.
It isn’t about audience like Hollywood.
It is all about Jesus Christ!
The mission of Fern Ridge Christian Church is:
“Creating the Culture of Christ.”
The core of our faith is that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the much needed Savior of the world. Everyone needs Jesus.
So we preach and teach Jesus. We serve in the name of Jesus. We do our best to model Jesus to our community and to the world.
Some people don’t like church. We understand. Since we are all imperfect, we plead with people to look past the shortcomings of the messenger (us) to see the glory of our message – Jesus Christ!
When you visit Fern Ridge Christian Church you will meet all kinds of people whose lives are being built in Christ. Some of us are still de-constructing our old lives and habits, and some have begun new lives of joy. You will find friends just like you – imperfect but under construction and full of hope. Our prayer is that you can see through us and catch the vision of the love of Jesus.
“I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. . .
I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings,
becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow,
to attain to the resurrection from the dead.”
[Philippians 3:8, 10-11 NIV]
