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.
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)
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.
As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.
Proverbs 27:17 NLT
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.
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.
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:
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.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness..
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:
When playing, members will be social in their participation, collaboration, and communication. Members are encouraged to use other community participation methods, such as Teamspeak and Discord, in order to keep engaged with the community.
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:
Members will refrain from cursing and sexual innuendos.
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.

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.

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.
