At Fellowship Bible Church we want to be about more than simply conducting Sunday services and maintaining a building. We believe there is a God-given purpose for our existence laid out for us in His word. Below is a brief explanation of the four components of our purpose which also serves as the process by which each person at FBC is challenged to grow and mature in Christ. Each component is represented by a room in the floor plan of our “spiritual house.” Like the layout of any house, ours is designed to create movement – a natural flow from room to room – which enhances our joy and satisfaction in the house.
“You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” -1 Peter 2:5
It’s simple, uncomplicated and uncluttered. The best things in life usually are! Here are the four rooms of our house and what they represent:
Our basic human tendency is to think the world revolves around us. It doesn’t! The more we read and reflect on God’s word, the more we see Him as Creator, Sustainer, Protector, and Provider. God is central to all of life and the only proper response is to worship Him!
Church is where authentic and transparent relationships grow and flourish as we all learn to live life together to the glory of God! Call it a team, a body or a family, the point is the same – the church is a connecting place where we learn to embrace community.
It is our goal at FBC to help every believer understand their unique, God-given gifts and abilities and to realize their full potential as ministers. These contributions help us live with a sense of importance as we collectively strengthen the church.
No church fulfills its purpose completely until it moves beyond the boundaries of its own members and facilities. Christ himself exemplified a life of ministry that reached across traditional boundaries of race, gender and social status. His church can do no less.
