The NCFIC maintains an online network called the, “FIC Network.” In order to be listed, these churches must indicate that they fully or substantially embrace the “Declaration for the Complementary Roles of Church and Family.” The churches which have identified with the NCFIC on the network are very unusual in the American landscape. I have been traveling and meeting leaders of these churches face to face over the past several months at “regional leaders meetings.” Thus far, I have traveled to: Orlando, FL; Birmingham, AL; Atlanta, GA; St. Louis, MO; Davenport, IA; Winston-Salem, NC; Chesapeake, VA; Boise, ID; Phoenix, AZ; and Bremerton, WA.
Following are twenty characteristics of these churches. I have shared some of these things at the meetings we’ve had. As you read through this list, ask yourself: “What percentage of churches in America share these qualities?”
