I overcame many obstacles, roadblocks, and heartaches to discover the truth. What changed first was my heart, then my mind, and finally, my body. In this process, I learned the true meaning of what it means to be a man.
It’s taken me years of mentorship, extensive study, refinement, and leading other men to identify three key areas and ten distinct virtues every man should abide by to live his best life. I’m here to help you discover the same freeing knowledge for a successful and fulfilling life.
The FX3® Challenge and all resources provided here are in-depth, faith-based approaches to radically transform your life and the lives of others. This includes the support of the brotherhood to hold each other accountable keep each other on the right path for success.
The mission statement of Faith, Fire & Fury, a faith-based dynamic and transformative program and brotherhood, are to provide a biblical foundation for men to live victoriously over the challenges we face today. We do this by applying the truths of Scripture and the person of Jesus Christ. And while this mission allows for freedom of interpretation and expression in many areas of life, we believe that the following core beliefs are absolute and non-negotiable. We invite you to read through this below.
We believe with complete confidence in God’s inerrant Word. We treasure its truths, and we respect its reproofs.
God the Father
We acknowledge the Creator-God as our heavenly Father, infinitely perfect and intimately acquainted with all our ways. Although there is one eternal, all-powerful, all-knowing, holy, just, loving, true, and unchangeable God, there are three divine persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—equal in power but distinct in roles.
The Lord Jesus Christ
We claim Jesus Christ, the second person of the Trinity, as our Lord—the very God who came in human flesh and undiminished deity with true humanity—the object of our worship and the subject of our praise.
The Holy Spirit
We recognize the Holy Spirit as the third member of the Godhead who actively works in us to convict, convince, and comfort us.
The Depravity of Humanity
We confess that Adam’s fall into sin left humanity without the hope of heaven apart from the ultimate sacrifice made possible by the Savior’s substitutionary death and miraculous resurrection.
We believe the offer of salvation is God’s love-gift to all my possible only by his grace and mercy. Simply by believing this good news that Christ died for our sins and then rose from the dead, a person is forgiven of all sins and declared righteous. Those who accept it by faith, not by works, become new creatures in Christ.
The Return of Christ
We anticipate our Lord’s promised return, which could occur at any moment, and we prepare in anticipation of this triumphant return and eternity.
The Body of Christ
We believe in the universal body of Christ, over which He rules as Head, and regardless of denomination, all true believers are spiritually baptized by the Holy Spirit into Christ’s body and are therefore spiritually united with Him and with one another.
The Family of God
We are grateful to be a part of a local congregation for mutual encouragement and spiritual growth, proclaiming God’s truth and as representatives of faith, hope, and love through evangelism, disciple-making, financial support, and services to the community and the world.
Over the years, I’ve served in various leadership roles and responsibilities at my local church, including that of Deacon.

I met Carlos in 2019 and spoke at length about an idea I had for a camping small group. He then shared with me his vision for Faith Fire Fury. Part of this vision included a retreat for men to participate in fellowship as well as a brotherhood as they seek to walk with Christ. A few months later we launched the foundations for the FX3® Retreat.
