As a follower of Christ, we are called not only to believe but also to connect. Believing is how you connect with God. But after you connect with God, He expects you to connect with a Christian fellowship of believers who can support you in your journey with God.
God created us with the need to connect with other believers and one way we do this is by actively serving the Lord in a local church. We see church membership as a pattern in the New Testament of God's word. For instance, in Acts converts repented, believed, were baptized, and they were added to the number of the church.
"And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved."
Another way we see believers connecting in the bible is through fellowship. Fellowship is a very real sense of sharing our lives with others. At FBC we strive to allow fellowship opportunities to happen. Please view our events calendar for upcoming fellowships.
As relational beings, we believe connecting with other believers helps in several ways.
- Connecting enriches each other's lives.
- Connecting provides accountability in a world temptation.
- Connecting encourages one another.
- Connecting develops a support "family"
