FMC world is a community passionate about connecting people to Jesus Christ.
Our purpose is helping to fulfill the Great Commission in the power of the Holy Spirit by winning people to faith in Jesus Christ, building them in their faith and sending them to win and build others. We help the body of Christ to do evangelism and discipleship in a variety of creative ways.
We are committed to the centrality of the Cross, the truth of the Word, the power of the Holy Spirit and the global scope of the Great Commission.
An erroneous notion permeates Christian thought which has us believe we don’t always need words to preach the Gospel—that our deeds will speak what we don’t. But faith comes by hearing. It can come by hearing (Romans 10:17). The Apostle Peter, in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost, spoke Scriptural truth as he quoted Joel and David and testified about what he had seen and heard from Jesus Christ. That large Jerusalem crowd he addressed heard him and, by his preaching, “about three thousand souls were added to them” (Acts 2:41).
In the New Testament, the Apostle Paul referred to the church as the body of Christ. He used this metaphor to relay significant truths about the church and to help believers better understand the value of diversity within the church. Paul wrote this to the church of Corinth: “Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many” (1 Corinthians 12:12-14).
The fleshly or unregenerate person does not have the Holy Spirit. The Bible refers to this person as “the natural man.” The natural man (or woman), according to the Bible, is unable to discern the truths of God, comprehending only “human judgments.” This person lives according to the “old nature” (Romans 6:6, 2 Corinthians 5:17, Ephesians 4:22-24, Colossians 3:9-10), “sinful nature” (Romans 7:18-25) or “earthly nature” (Colossians 3:5) and lacks the presence and the power of God. Conversely, “the spiritual man” is one who possesses the Spirit of God, or Holy Spirit.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him, will not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). From the Genesis account of creation, we learn that sinfulness entered humanity and the entire world because of the sins of Adam and Eve, Their sinful act against God was the beginning of the story of how God would go on to redeem humanity. Ultimately, nothing we do by following the law or offering sacrifices could be enough to save ourselves or repay the debt owed for our sins.
