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)

Q. How doth Christ execute the office of king?
A. Christ executeth the office of a king, in subduing us to himself (Acts 15:14, 15, 16), in ruling (Is. 33:22), and defending us (Is. 32:1, 2), and in restraining and conquering all his and our enemies (1 Cor. 15:25; Ps. 110 throughout).
