Who Are You?
Stauron Ministries is an apostolic company of believers partnering together for Kingdom advancement.
Are you a Church?
… We are NOT a traditionally minded group. We believe the whole of scripture and that there are at least 5 ministry/leadership callings….apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher.
… We are a group of Jesus followers who are in relationship, meet together regularly and worship, pray and encourage one another..
WhERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
We are located all over the world. We are not a ‘local congregation’, we are an international family of believers.
Do You have a church building?
A church building would be too traditional for us. We have what we call a ‘campus facility’. Our campus contains offices, class rooms, kitchen, conference room, library and auditorium. Our facility is available for community use. The facility is named the Freedom Life Center, and is located at 655 Augusta Road, Topsham, Maine 04086.
WhAT DENOMINATION ARE YOU?
We are inter-denominational. We derive from many walks of life… some liturgical, evangelical, charismatic, heathen, successful, average…we say of ourselves that we are ‘mutts’. No pure-bred superheroes. Just basic Bible believing Christians who love Jesus with all our hearts.
Do You Have a Church?
We believe that only Jesus has a Church.
OK.... SO IS THERE A Local Congregation Meeting I can Attend
Sure… we believe that pastoring, teaching and evangelizing are necessary ministries to our spiritual lives. So, we have an expression of ministry aimed at the southern mid-coast region of Maine that is geared toward reaching our community with the love of Jesus. This specific ministry is Family Christian Fellowship (FCF Community Church) Through the ministry of FCF we strengthen our families, enjoy pastoral & teaching ministry and extend ourselves to the community of greater Bath, Brunswick, and Freeport..
What do you mean by the work 'Apostolic'?
It means we are more about advancing the cause of Christ than we are about maintaining our own comforts or the "status quo". We are more gear to the ministry of apostles and prophets than we are pastors. It does not mean the we are 'Jesus only' or 'one-ness' in our doctrine. We are solidly Trinitarian in that we believe the scriptural revelation of on God who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Who is the pastor of Stauron Ministries... or FCF for that matter?
Well, as we have already said, Stauron is apostle/prophet led. FCF is a local congregation of families as well as new converts, and as such employs the service of a ‘team’ of pastors and pastorally minded mature believers.
What do you mean by 'Partnering together'?
To us, you are more than a ‘sheep’ or a potential church member. You are created with purpose and seeds of leadership, success and greatness on the inside of you. Not only do we feel a corporate purpose together in ministry, but each of us individually has a unique purpose. Our strategy is to each be faithful to help another achieve success to the same degree we desire it for ourselves.
The word 'Kingdom' Scares me. What do you mean by kingdom advancement?
Jesus taught that we are to first and foremost seek the benefit of the Kingdom and the King’s (Jesus’) righteousness. If we will do this, then a reward of ‘everything else’ will be added to our lives (Mathew 6:33). Before seeking our own benefit, we are to care more for that which Jesus is concerned. One day in the not so distant future, Jesus will physically return to this earth. He will set up His throne in Jerusalem. And we will all give an account as to how we spent this life He has entrusted us each with. Was I more concerned with my personal advancement, or did I live my life to further His cause?
