FIRE Gaming

A Place for Christians to gather

Originally geared towards Guild Wars 2, FIRE has recently grown into a multi-gaming Christian community that is steadily branching into various games—mostly centered around the MMO genre with a few oddities sprinkled in. Our Discord is active with an assortment of fiery personalities and eruptions of laughter are commonplace in the Coffee Bar section of our voice comms. Our members share music, memes, and theology on a daily basis but most importantly they share their time building fellowship within the community. If you want to do more than just game, join FIRE today.

A Place for a Wholesome Environment

It can be challenging to be a Christian in this world.  Everywhere we go, we are immersed in environments that carry a much different moral standard than we carry as Christians.  FIRE prides itself on providing an in-game home where we can gather together under a Christian worldview and grow together in our faith. We carry a conduct system that we ask everyone to adhere to, that is based upon Biblical principles. Houses are built on a strong foundation, and these Biblical principles form the foundation for the environment that FIRE has had for the past 10 years we have existed. We hold these standards in all forms of game-related communications.

A Place with a Firm Foundation

Every long-lasting structure to have ever survived the rugged weather and years has one commonality: a strong foundation. It is because of our foundation in the Word of God that FIRE Gaming has prospered over the years in Guild Wars 2.

The Word of God serves as the core of our lives. With the Holy Spirit’s guidance, our entire life can be mapped through the pages of the Scriptures, and He uses its lessons to grow us. At the core of the Scriptures are a set of teachings that are essential to understanding, as they describe the very nature and ultimate plan of our Father.

Our Games are FIRE

Guild Wars 2

Guild Wars 2 has been the primary game of FIRE since 2012 and our community has been representing Sanctum of Rall via skirmishes in WvW on a weekly basis. We have dedicated leaders who navigate our ragtag team to glorious riches and dramatic deaths on the battlefield. If WvW isn’t your scene, you’ll find various members teaching Raids, going through Fractals, farming events, and competing in end game content known as Fashion Wars.

Star Citizen

Whether you’re ready to make your millions mining asteroids or you just want to act like a human banana peel by tripping NPCs, you’ll find our growing community in Star Citizen has a place just for you. Ride shotgun on a smuggling operation, help gun down notorious enemies, or just smash a digital burrito into your helmet-covered mug—however you choose to spend your time among the stars is okay with us.

New World

Crash upon the shores of Aeternum with FIRE. Come join us as we pick wildflowers, slay timber, and water the vegetation with the blood of our enemies. Help us restore justice to the lands by joining the ranks of the Covenant. Together, we shall bring mercy to our enemies—with a quick kill. (More Info to Come)

Valheim

Come be a Viking with us on our dedicated Valheim server! Learn the craft of shooting a bow, dodging a troll, and graciously dying an embarrassing death to furry bacon. We have more than a server full of people playing and you’ll find the sweet connection details after you become an official member of FIRE.

Among Us

FIRE plays Among Us weekly on Sunday afternoons. You don’t have to be an official member of FIRE to participate in the shenanigans; however, it makes the dagger in your back sting a little less when you know you’ve been betrayed by a fellow community member. Don’t ask how. It’s just science. Join us and die.

Jackbox Party Games

If smack talking is your love language then you're about to find yourself in the deep end of the pool drowning in love. Join your fellow trolls in hilarious rounds of Murder Trivia, Quiplash, Don't Push the Button, and more. Best part? No purchase necessary. We've got you covered.

Board Games

Want to take it easy and let your mind drift? Too bad! Put on your thinking cap and try to best our players at games like Catan, Risk, Monopoly, and all other childhood games put in digital format.

Oddities

FIRE likes to spread out into all sorts of games. You'll find us testing out new arrivals all the time and if you have a game that you don't see listed, be sure to share it with the community! You may just find another member who is into it too.

Unreleased Games

FIRE is keeping several pre-alpha and alpha games on the radar. We're excited by the prospects that are being worked on and we're eager to get our hands on new worlds to run amuck in. Please stay tuned for the future moves of FIRE Gaming.

What Sparks Us

Our Vision

FIRE Gaming is a Christ-centered, family-friendly, fellowship-oriented, community-minded group, which is focused on building and strengthening relationships through group gaming activities and social events.

Where there is no vision, the people perish…
bible, blur, book
Proverbs
29:18 KJV

Christ-Centered

The very essence of our community is a relationship with Jesus Christ. It is our goal to be a Christ-Centered community and we desire to honor God in all that we do. It is our belief that our faith is primary and our gaming is secondary, and we have a strong hope that others we interact with see Christ shining through us.

Family-Friendly

Our goal is for every member to play in a comfortable environment where they are in control of the conduct they absorb. By maintaining a family-friendly environment, our gaming fellowship is safe for gamers of all ages. We have established a Biblically-based Standards of Conduct that assist in maintaining our family-friendly environment.

Fellowship-Oriented

Fellowship is what drives us to play with each other. We are more than an in-game character, but a real person that lives on past the log-in screen. We encourage fully immersing in the social experience that comes with our fellowship, which includes in-game collaboration, website communication, and Teamspeak communication.

Community-Minded

Jesus met with people where they were at, and He built relationships with those people, regardless of stature. We are not an exclusive community that wishes to hide away. We wish to build relationships with those in the community around us, and use our Godly example of Christ to positively influence them for Jesus. We regularly interact with others in our server community, and we hope to continue to be highly regarded as a friendly and helpful community.

Our Beliefs

The Scriptures

We believe the Scriptures of the Old & New Testament as being verbally inspired by God and inerrant and infallible in the original writings, and that they are of supreme and final authority.

The Trinity

We believe in one God eternally existing in one essence, yet co-equal persons, the Trinity: Father, Son & Holy Spirit.

The Son of God

We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by God, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born to the virgin Mary.

The Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, who convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. He is the life of the believer and He empowers the preaching and teaching of the Gospel.

The Nature of Man

We believe that mankind was created in the image of God, sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death, but spiritual death, which is separation from God, and that human beings are born with a sinful nature.

The Sacrifice

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the basis of His shed blood.

The Resurrection

We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, His ascension into heaven, and His present life there as High Priest and Advocate for us.

The Return of Jesus

We believe in the blessed hope, which is the personal, visible and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

The Salvation Path

We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again by the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God and heirs of eternal life.

The Eternal Plan

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting conscious suffering of the lost in hell, and the fellowship of the saved in heaven.

The Devil's Work

We believe in the existence of a personal devil, who is still working in the world to destroy the souls of men, and that he and all his angels and all who do not receive Christ as their personal Savior will eternally perish in the lake of fire.

The Gospel

We believe that the the gospel is the only means by which people are saved.

Who we invite

FIRE Gaming has a very specific focus on maintaining a family-friendly atmosphere with like-minded individuals. Our officer team use a variety of criteria to in our evaluations of each applicant, in order to ensure that by God’s grace, we select quality members that are similarly-minded with our membership. For this reason, we primarily recruit and accept applications for:

Those that have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior are the primary members within the guild, as we cater to an environment where this group of similarly-minded people thrive.

Others that do not necessarily consider themselves Christian but are seeking a family-friendly environment can also thrive in our type of community.
 
Non-believers are accepted on a case-by-case basis.

Our officer team selects members that meet cohesive criteria that promotes family-oriented gameplay without strife and needless debate. We base our selection on applicants that express the following qualities:

We are a family-friendly organization.  We strive for clean conversations and wholesome conduct, representing Jesus in our actions and words daily.
 
Why join a Christian guild if one is not even remotely intrigued by the Christian influence it brings?  Those that are are open-minded will thrive here.  This is an environment where Biblical topics can arise at any time, and every member needs to understand that this is the norm for a Christian group.

Why join a Christian guild if one’s own faith background contradicts the faith of the group he or she is involved with?  Unity is important, and while not everyone may believe in the same doctrines as each other, having a background that is a complete antithesis to Christianity will only breed disunity, corruption, and needless debate.

OUR PARTICIPATION GUIDELINES

FIRE Gaming has multiple avenues of staying connected that we use to cohesively build our community, such as Discord and Teamspeak. We desire our members to participate with each other in a more engaging manner than just in-game, as our focus is to build a long-lasting community that extends beyond the log-in screen of the game. For this reason, we have the following participation guidelines:

Our activity levels are gauged primarily through in-game activity, but also looked at secondarily through these other activity avenues. Lesser activity in-game, but higher levels of activity on our website can still build our community, and we welcome that in times of needed decreased play time.

Our Conduct Standards

FIRE Gaming holds to Biblically based standards of conduct. Conduct includes voice conversation, chat conversation, interactions with others, in-game actions, cheating, hacking, or anything game-related activity. Additionally, at no time should any member feel uncomfortable in the community, regardless of age, sex, nationality, color, or faith background. We are a family-friendly group, and for this reason, we have the following standards:

We realize that not every member is at the same place spiritually; the occasional slip may happen. However, we still need to make every attempt to keep Christ-centered standards in order to maintain a family-friendly gaming environment. We have young children that play with us, and we need to ensure they are free from improper conduct. Our officer team has full authority to make executive decisions based upon conduct in the community, which can range from a warning discussion to a complete community membership removal.

Our Leadership

"With upright heart he shepherded them and guided them with his skillful hand."

Odid

Community Leader, Guild Wars 2 Leader

Calm, cool, collected, and not a popsicle. But we think he likes popsicles. He is a man of few words and many Charr. Many, many, many Charr. Many, many, many, many, many, many Charr. It’s not a problem. It’s not a disease. Nope, not at all. The game allows this.

Azurene

Officer, New World Leader

Chicken Queen of the Fowl Army, author of fanfictions that no one may know about but everyone whispers about. Is a closet Disney Princess: obsessed with books, has hair like Rapunzel, would make a chicken her sidekick, slurps noodles like the Lady, wears skirts every day. Prefers to kill you outright rather than kill you with kindness, but she’ll do both because she’s professional. Uses corpses to decorate her office space.

Time zone location: North America – Pacific



"Boats"

Officer, Star Citizen Leader

Does not own a boat. May own too many copies of all the books Brandon Sanderson has written and will (not so) lovingly shove his love for them down your throat. Has the ability to grow a very intimidating/awesome beard and knows it. Not Santa Claus though the jury is still out on that.

Lives and breathes dad jokes and bursting out in song. May or may not come to your rescue should you ever fall in battle in the Mists due to forgetting where you body was, finding something shiny over yonder, or falling off of very high places at inopportune moments. Your mileage may vary. Up for adoption as pocket commander.
