OUR MISSION

      TO BRING FREEDOM IN ALL FORMS TO ALL PEOPLE, EVERYWHERE

OUR STORY

TFMC was started over 100 years ago by a group of families committed to bringing the gospel of Jesus to the rural community of Turlock. The church started meeting in a home downtown before moving into a facility on East Main Street and then eventually into our current facility. 

In recent years TFMC has experienced significant transformation in order to better meet the needs of our rapidly changing community. While many of the church's longstanding members have gone on to heaven, a new core of young, passionate leaders has risen to carry on the mantle of ministry to Turlock and beyond. 

The current-day TFMC is a community-driven church, committed to creating a family of Christian believers where ANYONE and EVERYONE can belong, even if they don't yet believe or behave like us. Our story is over 100 years old, but is really only just beginning!

OUR CULTURE

Our CULTURE flows from our Mission.

We strive to live as ones set FREE

The CULTURE of TFMC is encapsulated in the SIX values by which we strive to live.

ENGAGING THE POWER OF PRAYER

Prayer & Listening to God are our only NON-negotiables. In all things, at all times, we PRAY before we act.

DISCIPLING CULTURE

In all we do we will "take someone with us."  We are disciples of Jesus who make disciples of Jesus. Together we strive to BE who God has made us to be and to DO all He has planned for us to do.

EXERCISING GIFTS WITH AUTHORITY

We acknowledge all the various gifts and abilities God has given to every person & are committed to helping each person use those gifts with excellence as God directs.

MAKING A GLOBAL IMPACT

We take seriously and literally Jesus' commission that we make disciples of "all nations."  We seek and respond to opportunities to bring FREEDOM EVRYWHERE, be it in other towns, states, or countries.

ENGAGING SOCIAL JUSTICE

We are for FREEDOM in ALL FORMS for ALL PEOPLE. We stand with and for the those who are oppressed because of gender, financial status, ethnicity, or any other background, and we work to bring holistic freedom from all forms of slavery and subjugation.

MULTIPLYING MINISTRIES

We are not called to build a brand or an empire here for ourselves, but to raise up others and to GO where God calls us. We multiply disciples, leaders, groups, and churches.   

OUR LEADERS

Developing leaders is one of our HIGHEST priorities. Every leader here is always raising up their own replacement through mentoring.
