All other ground is sinking sand…

The slab of the atrium/classroom section of our building has been poured, and the sanctuary foundation will be poured soon. We all know how absolutely essential a solid foundation is to the strength, integrity, and sustainable life of any building. So, in anticipation of this important step in the construction process, the elders of Faith Community Church recently gathered at the building site for a simple, yet significant ceremony to memorialize the sure foundation upon which our church is truly built.

In the area approximating the location of the future pulpit, we buried a time capsule containing the following:

  • A copy of the FCC Doctrinal Statement
  • A copy of our Philosophy of Ministry
  • A copy of the church’s letter of incorporation
  • And, most importantly, a copy of God’s Word with key passages highlighted

These videos capture portions of the ceremony and more fully explain its significane to our church.

In Matthew 7:24, Jesus said,

“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.”

This is our sure foundation, and as the the great 19th century hymn by Edward Mote so definitively states, “All other ground is sinking sand.”
