As Christians - we all confess something. And what we confess unites us with believers both locally and historically. In order to pursue a greater unity and a more loving fellowship, FFC will be teaching through the Baptist Catechism (often called Keach's catechism - but we aren't using the one he popularized) during our Sunday evening service. There have been some modifications to the catechism over the years and because of this - your copy may have slightly different wording of a particular question or perhaps, a different ordering of questions or a different question all together depending on what copy you have. Please see the link at the bottom of the page for the baptist catechism we will be using (5th edition - published c.1693)
Check below to know what catechism question will be taught during the Sunday evening service.

Cor. 10:10), envying or grieving at the good of our neighbor (Gal. 5:26; James 3:14, 16), and all
