About

Our goal to assist current and former members of Faith Christian Church Tucson or one of its affiliate churches, connect with other people who were formerly victims of spiritual abuse and who have experienced first hand the heavy handed abuse that occurs in these churches.  You are not alone!! There are hundreds of people who have gone through amazingly dificult experiences and are here to help, pray with you and connect you with resources to get through it all.  Their stories are shared here.  Until this site is fully operational, you can visit http://www.facebook.com/pages/Former-Members-of-Faith-Christian-Church-Tucson-and-Its-Offshoots/264869173542893 and begin connecting with others.  God bless you!

    If the amount of time and resources that you spent creating this forum were used to glorify God, help those in need, seek and save the lost, or even just forgive as Jesus told us to do…. You would be a lot happier….as would those around you.

      Dear Anonymous June 1:

      There is no doubt that the mission you are serving to bring more people to Christ and spread the Word of God is a good thing. But you mention “seek and save the lost” which is a phrase I heard many times at FCC. I’m sure you attribute this phrase to newcomers who are not yet saved. This outreach that you do is good. But, what about “seeking and saving the lost” of those who have left FCC? The mental and emotional damage that is done to those that leave surpasses the “good” you are justifying in your mind by seeking and saving the lost of newcomers.

      The one thing you will notice with the blog and what people say is that nobody from FCC reaches out to any one of us. When I left FCC, I knew very well the isolation that would come from my minister at the time, but I didn’t know it would be this bad. When people leave FCC the members are told not to talk to them because they are now “in the world” and “backslidden”. What kind of church does that? Let alone followers of Christ? You should be reaching out to these people in love, not hate.

      WHY DOES NOT GOD STOP THIS EVIL MAN ????

      Mat 24:25 ===

      “False Christ’s and false prophets are going to appear and produce great signs and wonders to mislead, if it were possible, even God’s own people. Listen, I am warning you.”

        You could ask the same about every seemingly injust thing in the world – and a lot worse things are happening. I don’t know why, but it should indicate to current members that they should consider it really is possible they’re in the wrong place.

      You are a member of a dangerous cult if you subscribe to these “churches.” Ask yourself this question: ” In order to be saved, because I am such a worthless person, do I need to go out and explain to everyone just how bad I was before I accepted Christ into my life?” WARNING: “God is Love” is a premise that is NOT in this cult. Judgment of others and disdain/contempt for those outside of the “church” definitely is not only a premise, it is a prerequisite for members. This is a widespread con.

      I understand where you are coming from in this comment, but this website was the only reason I did not fall prey to FCC. I think getting the word out is absolutely vital to help others follow Christ in the way that He meant for us, and to avoid being drawn into this cult which appears so nice on the outside.

  2. Anonymous from June 1, speaking for myself, unless you know me personally, you don’t really how I glorify God. You don’t know whom I’ve forgiven or not forgiven. You don’t know who in need I’ve helped. And you certainly don’t know how utterly happy I am to no longer be under a controlling, manipulating, abusive system that goes by the name of “church.” If you’d like to discuss the issues in person and perhaps get to know me a bit better, I’d be glad to oblige.

    You people seriously need to move on. If you had a bad experience with something or someone, forgive them and move on. Don’t lump everything into one and just assume everyone is going to have a bad experience. All you are is bitter. The leaders of these churches aren’t perfect and in 5 years I’ve never heard a single one of them ever claim to be. Quit telling other people your assumptions and opinions about them like it’s gospel truth! So you didn’t get along with some of them, big deal, get over it. And you also need to quit slandering the other churches just because you had a bad experience or didn’t agree with something at the one you attended. Every church, I don’t care where it is, what denomination it is, who their leader is, EVERY SINGLE ONE has people that don’t agree with absolutely everything they do, does that make that church a cult? Absolutely not! Anyone and everyone is welcome to leave at any time if they don’t feel comfortable for whatever reason. It’s the same with these churches, you can leave anytime you want to if you don’t like it. You need to learn the definition of a cult. Are any of the members making out any of the church leaders out to be a god? No they’re not! The truth is, these churches and their leaders put God first in EVERYTHING and teach others to do the same. And when I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING! That includes church, life, finances, home life, etc. God is a part and is involved in EVERY aspect of your life so what is wrong with getting advice or help on any of these things? Absolutely nothing! Am I saying that none of these leaders have ever made any mistakes in the positions they’re in? No I’m not! They are HUMAN! They make mistakes, they’re not infallible. I encourage anyone who is looking at this site not to believe everything that is said on here because most are gross exaggerations of the truth anyway! Go speak with one of these leaders yourself, go check out the church yourself. If you don’t like it, then go to another one that suits you better, but don’t go bashing and slandering them just because you didn’t like it there. These churches and their leaders are doing great things for students on college campuses across the country! For every 1 person on this site that is slandering all of these churches, there are probably 10 others that are so thankful for what these churches have done and are doing in their lives!

      The leaders speak directly to God and there is absolutely NO training/schooling behind their contemporaneous and individual interpretations of the Bible. Go to one of their meetings on campus…they like to use state facilities to recruit! There exists no oversight over these church leaders, and the “pastors” are self-anointed/self appointed con men who PREY (not pray) on others and manipulate and exploit in the name of God.

        To be fair, I don’t think they realize how demented some of their practices are – they think they’re right, and that’s why things continue.

        I said “practices” but I probably should have said beliefs/attitudes, because those are the things that cause everyone to act the way they do and comprise the general spirit of these churches.

    Hi, My son is on campus at Colorado Boulder and was approached by a member from Resurection Church. He says they are great people but they have been pressuring him into being saved. We are worried and I am not sure if this is a cult?? I live in another state so its hard for me to find out anything about this church except for it’d website. Does anyone have any input of info that might help?

    Hello,

    I was a member in FCC in Tucson for 6 years. I THANK GOD every day for finally opening my eyes. Like many of you, I had good and bad experiences while I was a member. I saw many red flags, but ignored them because I really thought this Church “had it right.” I am now in the healing process, and I am struggling to find a church in Tucson. I am afraid of getting into another FCC church. I don’t trust like used to… I love God, and I really want to start going back to Church. Can anyone recommend me a good church in Tucson in which I can grow and heal. Thank you!
