Mission Statement


FLARMIC CARE CENTRE & SCHOOL (FCC) The flarmic care centre & school (FCC) is a non-profit charitable organization serving as a Faith based organization for the local communities in Kenya and was formed as a project of Flaming River Church for the following purposes: The FCC shall have at heart the religious cultivation, spiritual growth and development of the needy people, enabling them to stand firmly in their Christian faith, to devote themselves to Christian mission and to uphold the following purposes as the basis of all the activities of the organization: 1. To act as a Faith Based organization within the family of the gospel preachers ministries and the universal Church of Jesus Christ. 2. To encourage by all means the education interests of and religious educational, literary and philanthropic work of local Churches, organizations and individuals throughout the world right from the childhood stage. 3. To promote fellowship among the local churches and the Evangelical-Protestant people throughout the world. 4. To do everything necessary or incident for the accomplishment of any or all of the foregoing purposes, including the establishment and management of trust funds and the acquisition of bequests, consistent with the law and within the principles of Christianity. 5. The prevailing circumstances is ripe for this project because of numerous factors ranging from abject poverty, declining pupil enrolment in schools, ravaging HIV/AIDs leading to increasing numbers of orphans and vulnerable children. We are therefore intent upon offering hope in the face of cruelty of the real life situation and experiences. Our assessment reveals that these children lack support system for them to learn and become reasonable and helpful members of the society when they grow up. This will therefore be an intervention measure to complement government efforts in education. Our concern is driven by an open secret that the government efforts is faced by numerous challenges like the reasons cited above. Most public schools do not have a mechanism to assist OVCs (orphaned and vulnerable Children), and therefore such children naturally get locked out of the educational system. 6. What is the spiritual impact of FCC? As Christians we believe and cherish the concept of sharing and giving. We, however, are incapacitated financially to be able to match our aspirations and desires with positive and pragmatic actions. It is therefore our belief that with this project, we shall be able to reach the souls of many children, parents and guardians whose aim is to better their lot through education but who are faced by challenges that inhibit this realization. In our plans, we intend to bring on board without discrimination all deserving cases as we take cognizance of the levels of poverty and increasing numbers of destitute children in our society, and the cost implications against the number of children to be assisted. 7. Who is FCC trying to help? What issue is FCC trying to address? Our project focuses on helping children from poor families in local churches, including those affected or infected by HIV/AIDs. Community education for behavior change is also being addressed to minimize the spread of HIV/Aids and to reduce stigma, promoting the wellbeing of neglected children from the slums. Provision activities shall also be conducted at the centre, acting as a model for other projects within the community. It is intended, on a long term scale, that the school shall be modified to act as a center of excellence facility for the community to promote the best interest of the children and the society at large.

Organizational Statement of Faith


Statement of Faith The following is a statement of our position of basic Christian doctrines. As once stated by a great missionary, "There are certain basic Christian truths about which there must be agreement. On all other doctrines there should be liberty. In all things there must be charity." It is our resolution to take an uncompromising stand on the essential doctrines of the faith, and extend "the right hand of fellowship" to all who hold to them. It is also our resolution to protect the liberty of Christians to hold different perspectives on the "non-essential" doctrines. There are doctrines we may consider non-essential, but which are important. We therefore make known our belief on these, while presenting them with tolerance toward those who may hold a different position. We are committed to truth and accuracy in doctrine, but also understand that one can hold right doctrines and still do damage to the body of Christ by causing divisions over the non-essentials. We are therefore just as committed to the essential Christian character, believing that "In all things there must be charity." As the apostle stated, "The goal of our instruction is love, from a pure heart and a sincere faith" (I Timothy 1:5). That, too, is our goal and commitment as we promote the following teachings that we hold as truth: On the Person of Jesus There is only one true God, Who is revealed in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is the Word (Logos) of God. The Word was with God in the beginning, which states His pre-existence as one with God. "By Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth" (Colossians 1:16), therefore making Jesus the Creator. Jesus Christ is the Purpose of God found in all of creation. He is the Father's delight and desire, and the Father is looking for the reflection of His Son in all created things. Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. In the beginning, it was the ultimate purpose of God for all things to be summed up in Christ (Ephesians 1:10). Jesus Christ, Who pre-existed with God in the form of God, emptied Himself to become fully a man that He might be the propitiatory sacrifice for the sins of mankind. Through His propitiatory sacrifice made on the cross, all who believe in Him and His sacrifice have their sins remitted and are restored to the fellowship with God lost by man's transgression. Jesus was born of a virgin, by the seed of the Holy Spirit. His virgin birth is a testimony that only the Spirit can beget that which is Spirit. Those of the new creation are not solely of human origin, but are born from above by the Holy Spirit. The resurrection of Jesus' physical body after His crucifixion was literal, as will be the resurrection of both the just and the unjust on the Day of Judgment. "There is one God and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus" (I Timothy 2:5). All who seek restoration and fellowship with God must go through Jesus and cannot approach God through any person, spirit or doctrine. It is also a supreme presumption for any person or institution to seek to be mediator for others in place of Christ Jesus Himself. The apostolic commission was for His followers to labor until Christ was formed in His church, to present every person complete in Christ, and to manifest the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place. When Jesus is lifted up, He will draw all people to Himself. We consider it the primary purpose of the church to esteem and exalt Jesus in every way. It is the focus and devotion of Messiah Ministries to know and preach Him, and not ourselves. We pray for the grace to continually respond to His call to return to our first Love, that we might passionately devote ourselves to pleasing Him in all things while preparing for His return. On Man We believe that man was created by God from the dust of the earth, without sin or the knowledge of good and evil. The first man, Adam, transgressed the command of God, and as God had warned, the process of death entered him and all of his descendants because of that transgression. Therefore, all have sinned and are worthy of the sentence of death. Because of our unrighteousness, we are unable to approach a holy God, except through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus. Through Jesus, we not only can come before the Throne of Grace, but we may approach it boldly since our confidence is not in ourselves, but in the Lord Jesus. On the Atonement Because all have sinned and are therefore under the sentence of death, all must trust in the atoning sacrifice of Jesus for the remission of sins. There is no other way to reconcile with God or escape from eternal judgment, except through the propitiatory sacrifice of Jesus. Those who trust in Jesus Christ have access to the Throne of Grace by His sacrifice and by His sacrifice alone. Good works are acceptable to God only as a love offering given to Him because of His worthiness, and have no bearing on our acceptance, standing or approval, all of which were accomplished by the cross. Good works offered for the purpose of acceptance, standing or approval is therefore an affront to the cross by which all of these things were gained for us by Jesus. Good works are not offered for His approval, but for His joy and glory, and must be offered through the Son (I Peter 2:5) in obedience to Him. Therefore, the goal of our service is obedience not sacrifice. On the New Birth Believing in our hearts that Jesus is the Son of God and in His propitiation made for our salvation, results in a regeneration and renewal that constitutes our new birth into new creations. Although this does not imply immediate perfection in our temporal life or lifestyle, it does mean that true faith will result in a radical change in us. Being "born again" implies a new beginning, not an ending. Christian maturity in faith, truth and life is a process. Even so, this process must begin with spiritual regeneration or new birth. While it is possible to change our behavior without regeneration, changing our hearts requires the new birth, and it is our hearts upon which God looks. On the Purpose of Faith True faith is of the heart and not just the mind (Romans 10:10). God's purpose in requiring faith for salvation is to raise our focus and concentration above the temporal to the One who is eternal. Therefore, the gospel that is able to save souls must be preached in the power of the Spirit of God. The gospel is not dependent upon human eloquence or persuasion that may change minds, but cannot change hearts. Only the Spirit of God can reveal the Son of God, and only the Son of God can reveal the Father. On the Authority of Scripture We believe that the Bible is God?s written Word expressing His character and desires for His people and we choose it as our rules of order, practice, and conduct and as our sole authority for living life as a Christian. We understand that there are many practices and doctrines that are considered orthodox which do not contradict the Scripture, but which are not directly addressed in His Word. We are committed to giving liberty in the belief and practice of these teachings, but we will endeavor to maintain the simplicity of the biblical testimony and its stated practices as we are given grace to perceive them. We do not accept any spiritual experience as having its source in the Holy Spirit that does not have a precedent in Scripture. We do not accept any revelation, vision, dream, prophecy or discernment as truth which contradicts Scripture, or cannot be verified by it. We do not believe that any other writings have the same authority as the canon of Scripture. On the Lord's Supper We acknowledge the ordinance of the Lord's Supper in remembrance of Jesus and as a testimony of our communion (common-union) with Him in His body, the church. We consider it a holy ordinance, but we do not accept the teaching that communion is for the purpose of remitting sins, which Scripture testifies is based solely in the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross (Hebrews 9:25-28). On Water Baptism We believe that water baptism should be accomplished immediately after commitment to the Lordship of Jesus and His atoning sacrifice for our sin. This ordinance is a personal and public statement of faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ on our behalf, and is a commitment to lay down our lives to be one with Him in His death, burial and resurrection. On the Baptism of the Holy Spirit We believe that every believer has the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ, abiding within them. But every believer is not necessarily filled with the Holy Spirit or baptized in the Holy Spirit. God desires every believer to come to this place of deep trust and surrender of every area of their life to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. This determines the measure that they are filled and baptized with the Holy Spirit, to move in the gifts of the Spirit and bear the fruit of the Spirit.(John 12:24) We are to be completely yielded to God, as best as we can and all by His grace, to be filled with all the fullness of God in our life-long journey of spiritual maturity to be sanctified entirely in spirit and soul and body, to be both sound and blameless at the coming of Christ, as the pure and holy Body of Christ and Bride of Christ (Ephesians 3:19 and 5:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:23; Acts 1:5; Galatians 5:16-26). On the Present Ministry of the Holy Spirit We believe that "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever" (Hebrews 13:8) and that His ministry in and through the church by the Holy Spirit has not changed from the beginning. We accept, acknowledge, encourage and seek all of the biblical gifts and ministries of the Holy Spirit as present and vital for the church to accomplish her full purpose today. On the Second Coming of Christ We believe in the literal, physical return of the Lord Jesus Christ to take authority and rule on earth. We believe that those who are alive and remain at the return of our Lord will be changed and caught up to be with Him in the air. Those who have died in the faith will be resurrected and precede those who are alive in being changed and caught up to be with Him. We believe in the literal, physical resurrection of both the just and the unjust for the Day of Judgment. For those of us who have been justified by faith in Jesus Christ and His sacrifice on our behalf, this resurrection is for eternal life in fellowship with God. Those who are not justified by faith in Jesus are resurrected for an eternal judgment.
