Freedom in Christ Ministries (FICM) was founded by Dr. Neil T. Anderson in 1989 while he was professor of practical theology at Talbot School of Theology, La Mirada, CA. Dr. Anderson observed that Christian students did not know who they were in Christ and were not connecting with God in that intimate "Abba! Father!" relationship. As the result, he began teaching a course at the graduate level entitled "Resolving Personal and Spiritual Conflicts." The response was overwhelming and soon Dr. Anderson began teaching this message of our identity, position, authority and victory in Christ in churches across the nation and around the world.
Today he focuses on the importance of overcoming anxiety and fear and how to cut it off at the source.
"If someone has rotten fruit it attracts flies. Then you say "I have a problem, I've got to get rid of all these flies!" When what you should be doing is getting rid of the rotten fruit."
