Article CollectionOn this page you can find the following about FiCF:

Purpose:

To minister to women so that the image of God can be restored in them, and that they may live out the abundant life as promised by Christ.   

Goals:

  • To develop Christian women leaders and promote the health and growth of the total person so that they can become effective witnesses for Christ at home and at Church, in the market place and the society at large.
  • To provide a platform for woman ministers, seminarians and pastors’ wives to support and share with each other.
  • To serve girls and women who are abused and oppressed by providing spiritual and emotional counseling and healing, and provide educational and vocational training to rebuild their lives.

Statement of Faith

  • We believe the whole Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God and the final authority for all Christian faith and life.
  • We believe the Triune God is the only true God, Creator and Ruler of heaven and earth. Jesus Christ the Son, conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, died on the Cross as an atonement for our sins and rose again on the third day. He ascended into heaven and will return to establish new Heaven and Earth. God the Father prepared the Salvation, the Son accomplished it and the Holy Spirit executes it.
  • We believe that human beings, both male and female are created in the image of God, but in Adam we are all sinners in need of God’s salvation. Only by faith in Christ can we be justified and receive eternal life.
  • We believe the church is the Body of Christ. Christ is the Head of the Church. In Christ all people regardless of race, class or gender receive the same spiritual Inheritance and the same calling to faithfully use their gifts and resources to build up God’s Kingdom.
