Sooner or later, every teenager faces a difficult question: “Who am I?”
The teen years provide every young man and woman a season of growth, self-discovery, and formation of their maturing minds as they navigate life and form relationships with their peers. Sadly, the world our teens inhabit seeks to twist and manipulate the truth of their “identity” on every level, by demanding cultural compliance to ideologies that induce a feeling of urgency to redefine social, economic, racial, and sexual identities.
At FCL we are dedicated to help our youth discover that the reality of their identity can never be found by anything that our culture prescribes, or by anything teens can do or figure out on their own. Rather, it is found only through the truth of the gospel (Genesis 1:27; John 1:12-13; Galatians 3:26; 1 Peter 2:9; Romans 8:16-17). By pointing them to Jesus alone, teens will learn that the most important answers do not come by asking “Who am I?” but rather from the question Jesus asked about Himself… “Who do you say that I am?” (Matthew 16:13-19). By answering Jesus’ question teens will come to know that their true identity is found only by asking “Who does God say that I am, in Christ?”
FCL will always teach your teen that, in Christ, they have a real, eternal, and valuable identity - and that those who are adopted as children of God through his Son, Jesus, are identified as the “Redeemed” by grace alone, though faith, because of the finished, once for all, substitutionary, eternally-saving work of Jesus on the cross. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:20; )
With a healthy blend of discipleship, worship and friendship, FSM strives to create an environment in which every teenager will feel welcomed and loved. All ages between sixth and twelfth grades are invited!
