FFC has adopted an in house document known as a Relational Covenant. The purpose of this document is to enable us to "Walk hand in hand when we don't see eye to eye". The Bible clearly states how believers should relate to each other. We the people of Falconridge Family Church resolve to make every effort to have Christ honoring and Biblical patterned relationships. Recognizing that we are all human with tendencies to falter and forget. The relational covenant has been developed to encourage and remind us how to live well together through times of transition and seasons of stability. The main text from the bible for our relational covenant is Colossians 3:12:17.
"Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tender hearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Make allowances for each other's faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body, you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful. Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father."
