Welcome!

Welcome to the website for Team FCA-Endurance SW Virginia!

We are a group of Christian athletes who have a passion for serving God and for training and competing in athletic events such as running, cycling, swimming, triathlon and ultra-running. We want to take this desire to train, race and compete, and turn it upward to achieve something great for the Kingdom!

Our unified vision is to see SW Virginia impacted for Jesus Christ through the influence of endurance athletes.

Our mission is to present to endurance athletes, and all whom they influence, the challenge and adventure of receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, serving Him in their relationships and in the fellowship of the church.

The Competitor’s Creed 

I am a Christian first and last.
I am created in the likeness of God Almighty to bring Him glory.
I am a member of Team Jesus Christ.
I wear the colors of the cross.

I am a Competitor now and forever.
I am made to strive, to strain, to stretch
and to succeed in the arena of competition.
I am a Christian Competitor
I face my challenger and as such, with the face of Christ.

I do not trust in myself.
I do not boast in my abilities or believe in my own strength.
I rely solely on the power of God.
I compete for the pleasure of my Heavenly Father,
the honor of Christ and the reputation of the Holy Spirit. 

My attitude on and off the field is above reproach - my conduct beyond criticism. 
Whether I am preparing, practicing or playing; 
I submit to God’s authority and those He has put over me. 
I respect my coaches, officials, teammates and competitors 
out of respect for the Lord.

My body is the temple of Jesus Christ
I protect it from within and without.
Nothing enters my body that does not honor the Living God.
My sweat is an offering to my Master.
My soreness is a sacrifice to my Savior.

I give my all – all of the time.
I do not give up. I do not give in. 
I do not give out. I am the Lord’s warrior –
a competitor by conviction and a disciple of determination.
I am confident beyond reason because my confidence lies in Christ.
The results of my efforts must result in His glory.

LET THE COMPETITION BEGIN.
LET THE GLORY BE GOD’S.
