Flexslider only on Front Page

Hi, I'm using Flexslider and it works fine.

The only thing I cannot do is to use it only on front-page.php

Here is the code that works (but on all pages, not only on front-page)

add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'enqueue_child_theme_styles', PHP_INT_MAX);

function enqueue_child_theme_styles() {
    wp_enqueue_style( 'pho', get_template_directory_uri().'/style.css' );
    wp_enqueue_style( 'pho-child', get_stylesheet_uri(), array('pho')  );
    wp_enqueue_style( 'grid', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/css/grid.css');
    wp_enqueue_style( 'flexslider', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/css/flexslider.css');
}

function theme_js() {
    wp_enqueue_script( 'theme_js', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/js/theme.js', array( 'jquery' ), '', true );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'flexslider', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/js/jquery.flexslider-min.js', array('jquery'), '', false );
}

add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'theme_js');

Here is the code that I thing should work nly on front-page. But it does not.

add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'enqueue_child_theme_styles', PHP_INT_MAX);
function enqueue_child_theme_styles() {
    wp_enqueue_style( 'pho', get_template_directory_uri().'/style.css' );
    wp_enqueue_style( 'pho-child', get_stylesheet_uri(), array('pho')  );
    wp_enqueue_style( 'grid', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/css/grid.css');

    wp_register_style( 'flexslider', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/css/flexslider.css' );
    if( is_page( 'front-page' ); ) {
        wp_enqueue_style( 'flexslider' );
    }
}

function theme_js() {
    wp_enqueue_script( 'theme_js', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/js/theme.js', array( 'jquery' ), '', true );

    wp_register_script( 'flexslider', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/js/jquery.flexslider-min.js', array('jquery'), '', false );
    if( is_page( 'front-page' ) ) {
        wp_enqueue_script( 'flexslider' );
    }
}

add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'theme_js');

If anyone knows, please tell me what is wrong with the second code.

Or you can try to test for the front page with this:

if ( is_front_page() ) {
    wp_enqueue_style( 'flexslider' );
}

Try deleting the ; after the Front Page:

From this...

if( is_page( 'front-page' ); ) {
        wp_enqueue_style( 'flexslider' );

to this...

if( is_page( 'front-page' ) ) {
        wp_enqueue_style( 'flexslider' );
