We desire to fulfill the need of the youth for merriment
through activities that promote not only spiritual but social
growth as well.
A determinant to one’s active participation in a
community is the feeling of being welcomed. In CFC-YFL,
we strive to create an atmosphere of belongingness wherein
everyone is given warm reception regardless of race, gender,
physical attributes, attitude… etc. We believe that
we are all brothers and sisters in Christ because by one
Spirit are we all baptized into one body and have been
all made to drink into one Spirit (1 Cor. 12:13). Therefore,
each person should be loved, just like Christ had loved,
in spite of who he/she is and was. (John 15:12)
The focal point in the existence of CFC-YFL is Christ. We
look to Jesus Christ as our model and guide. Therefore,
in each endeavor and activity in our community, we first
and foremost seek that God will be glorified. Every activity’s
goal is for the participant to know Christ and be like Him.
Since in CFC-YFL we believe that all things should be
done for the glory of God (1 Peter 4:11), we do everything
outstandingly in all the aspects of our lives. We do everything
to the best of our abilities by dwelling in truth, honor,
righteousness, purity, loveliness and good reputation.
