Welcome to FCC!
Here's what you can expect when you plan a visit to First Christian Church of Borden...
A Word from Pastor Franklin
I’ve noticed an alarming trend lately. I see many churches that express their desire to reach people, but then distance themselves from the “church” in the process. I understand the intent is to reach people who have a negative opinion of the church or have had negative experiences in the past.
Let me say, as the Teaching Pastor of First Christian Church, that we want to reach all people. (People with positive and not so positive experiences in the “church.”) We want to encourage, build up, teach, and grow together as the family of God should. FCC is a place where authenticity is valued as well as our people. We are a come as you are church. We are a church with a melting pot of people coming to grow in their faith.
Here at FCC, it is our desire to be a Family, a Community, and a Church where you are always valued. This Family, Community, and Church is a special place full of loving people who are “taking their next steps toward Christ, together…” All those who call FCC their church home are at different places in their walk/journey with Christ, and that’s what makes this place so special.
We want to invite you to come check us out. Come with the expectation that you will be loved and valued as a person. (“Warts and all.”) What I think you’ll find refreshing is the fact that we are a church that loves you too much to let you stay where you are spiritually.
Come grow with us!
Pastor, Joe Franklin
