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 Name

God adopts those who believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior into His forever family (Acts 16:30-31, Romans 8:14-17).  One of our  early members referred to the group (originally named Firm Foundations) as her “Firm Family” and the name stuck. When the church officially launched in 2019, the name was chosen to emphasize that together we as believers are members of God’s forever family.

Our History


Will and Lindy Wilson started Firm Foundations community group at the Evangelical Free Church of Chico. It was originally planned to be a group for young couples, but as God blessed the group it soon grew to include people from all ages and stages.  


Firm Family became a church! Through much prayer and discussion, it was decided to launch a church from the community group. As we have met in various locations and various formats, God has been faithful to continue working in and through us as a local church body. We are excited to see where He directs us in this next chapter!


How do I become a member at FFC? You can be a member of God’s family and church by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior (Romans 10:9-10). We do not have formal membership at FFC, but if you fill out a Connection Card you will be added to our roster and kept informed about what is happening at the church.

Where is the church office? The church office is currently located at 2201 Pillsbury Rd. STE 150, Chico CA 95926

Is there a children’s ministry at FFC? In recognizing that different families have different needs and convictions about children in service and in an effort to be a welcoming place for people from all ages and stages, we have a children’s ministry on Sunday mornings for kids up to 5th grade. We also welcome kids of all ages in the service with their families and provide coloring activities on a table in the back of the room. 

Is FFC part of a denomination? FFC is a nondenominational, evangelical, Bible-believing and Bible-teaching church who is striving to love God and love others (Matthew 22:37-40).

How can I give to FFC? You can give online, mail a check to our office, or drop your offering in the box on Sundays.
