Mission Statement

The Mission of Fellowship Community Church (FCC) and its Foundation is to further the Kingdom of God by displaying God’s love to all people, appealing to them to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and supporting and encouraging Christians to grow in Christ.

What is the FCC Foundation?

FCC has created the Fellowship Community Church Foundation to provide opportunities for church members and friends of FCC to make gifts and investments in the work and future of FCC.  Gifts given to the FCC Foundation will be invested and used to fulfill the needs and Mission of FCC.

FCC has partnered with the Lincoln Community Foundation for purposes of maintaining the FCC Foundation.  FCC retains all control and decision making authority over the FCC Foundation.  The Lincoln Community Foundation  merely provides support by managing our investment portfolio and making state and federal regulatory filings on behalf of the FCC Foundation.  All decisions regarding investment, remittance and disbursements of FCC Foundation funds will remain in the complete control of the church.  

How does the FCC Foundation work?

Any gifts received by the FCC Foundation will be placed in the FCC Foundation account.  FCC Foundation money is invested to work and continue to grow the principle in the Foundation.  Donors may request their gift be used for specific purpose, i.e., youth work or international missions, or the gift may be given for the general benefit of FCC.  Individuals and groups can apply for money from the FCC Foundation for specific purposes.  An Advisory Committee for the FCC Foundation reviews applications received, oversees the investments of the FCC Foundation, and maintains the accounts within the FCC Foundation.  The Committee makes recommendations and reports to the Board of Directors regarding applications, money management, and financial status of the Foundation.
