WHO WE ARE
We are a church that places our focus on the vision and mission of Jesus Christ. We are devoted to family and committed to teaching the truths of the Bible. With these truths, we are able to exalt the Savior, equip the saints, and evangelize the sinner. It is our hope and belief that God will restore, reconcile, forgive, and redeem those who are lost through the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. As Jesus reminds us in John 13:34-35, a new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
FBC’s mission is to exalt the Savior, equip and spiritually mature the saints to become disciples, and evangelize the sinner. Matthew 28:19-20 teaches that those who are believers of Jesus Christ must go ye therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded thee, and, lo I am with you always, even unto the end of the age.
