The Ministries of FCA

FCA is an international ministry that seeks to use the platform of sports to reach every coach and athlete competing at every level. FCA pursues its vision and mission through the strategy of "To and Through the Coach". FCA seeks ministry first to coach's hearts, marriages, and families. Then, when ready, FCA staff minister through coaches to their fellow coaches, teams, and athlete leaders. The ultimate goal of FCA is to make disciples through our methods of engaging, equipping, and empowering coaches and athletes to know and grow in Christ and then lead others to do the same.

Mission statement

To lead every coach and athlete into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and His church.

Statement of faith

We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, trustworthy and true, without error, Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

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

We believe Jesus Christ is God, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His death that paid for our sin through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension/rising up to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. (John 1:1; Matthew 1:18,25; Hebrews 4:15; Hebrews 9:15-22; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Acts 1:9-11; Hebrews 9:27-28)

We believe that acceptance of Jesus Christ and the corresponding renewal of the Holy Spirit is the only path to salvation for lost/sinful men and women. (John 3:16; John 5:24; Titus 3:3-7)

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, who lives within and guides Christians, so they are enabled to live godly lives. (John 14:15-26; John 16:5-16; Ephesians 1:13-14)

We believe in eternal life and that through belief in Jesus Christ as the Son of God, we spend eternity with the Lord in Heaven. We believe that in rejecting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, we receive eternal suffering in hell. (Matthew 25:31-46; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ that all believers are members of His body, the church. (Philippians 2:1-4)
