FCA's Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
We believe there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)
We believe in the deity of Christ (John 1:1), in His virgin birth (Matthew 1:18, 25), in His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15), in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood (Hebrews 9:15-22), in His bodily resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:1-8), in His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Acts 1:9-11) and in His personal return in power and glory (Hebrews 9:27-28).
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men (women), regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. (John 3:16; John 5:24; Titus 3:3-7)
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (John 14:15-26; John 16:5-16; Ephesians 1:13-14)
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (Matthew 25:31-46; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Philippians 2:1-4)
What People are Saying about FCA...
Rev. Billy Graham
“The Fellowship of Christian Athletes is one of the most effective movements in this nation for the presentation of the Gospel to young people.”
Joe Gibbs, head coach, Washington Redskins
“FCA is an exceptional ministry in that it encourages people in the game of life and challenges people to study the Word of God.”
tobyMac, Christian recording artist
“If we would take most opportunities and do with them what FCA has done with athletics to students, we’d be in a very good place right now. It’s impressive to me because FCA is taking something that brings people together—athletics—and they’re using that very thing that brings them together to make them walk together at a deeper level.”
Kent Bottenfield, 10-year MLB pitcher
“FCA refuses to water down the message in order to attract individuals. They are all about Jesus Christ and a relationship with Him. They don’t take the message and twist and turn it and try and draw interest.”
Bobby Bowden, Head Football Coach, Florida State University
“I am involved because I believe that is one of the answers to America’s problems. So many of the young men we coach come from broken homes without a father. The coaches have to become the father-figure. I think that when these boys go to FCA meetings and conferences, it prepares them for life.
“I’ve seen more boys turn their lives around through their affiliation with FCA than any other branch, other than maybe the church. The church still comes first for me, but FCA is at the very next level. If you’re not going to get your kid in a church, get him into FCA, and he will want to get into a church.
“I’ve seen lives completely changed, especially when you send kids to FCA summer camps. Nothing affects kids like FCA!”
John Wooden, legendary basketball coach, UCLA
“FCA is a great organization, and it serves an outstanding purpose. It is a wonderful opportunity for young people. I like to see how it has progressed at the various campuses throughout the country.”
