Our Mission

… is to help people from all ages and stages develop a faith that is real and friends that are true so that we may think biblically, live distinctively, and love like Jesus to impact our world for Christ.

Our History

Our Name

We believe that God adopts us into His family. One of our members referred to the group as her “Firm Family.”  That name stuck, and when we launched the church in 2019, the name was chosen to emphasize that together we are members of God’s family.


Firm Family becomes an official church!


Firm Foundations Community Group was started at the Evangelical Free Church of Chico.  We believe that Jesus Christ alone is our firm foundation–as Paul wrote to the church in Corinth, “…no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 3:11, NKJV).

Thing's you'll frequently hear

“Every member is a minister” – 1 Peter 2:9 declares, “… you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”  We believe that every member of God’s church is a minister, and that we are called to ministry whatever our walk of life.

“Moving from rows to circles” – To love and serve one another we need to know one another.  We are intentional about providing opportunities to get to know one another.

“People are often God’s method” – Our sovereign God can work in any way He pleases – very frequently this is through His people.

Every need presents an opportunity, but not every need constitutes a call.  Saying no to one opportunity lets you say yes to another:  We look to provide you with opportunities to do good works.  We do not expect that you avail yourself of all of them.

The best is yet to come, because Jesus has yet to return:  Jesus is our hope, and each day brings us closer to his glorious return.
