Purpose

Purpose

The mission of Faith Bible Church is to manifest the grace and truth of the Lord Jesus Christ to the entire world through our own, genuine experiential knowledge of His truth and grace in our own lives. "And the Word (Jesus) became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth…grace and truth came through Jesus Christ (John 1:14,17b)."

The purpose of Faith Bible Church is to glorify God by living lives in submission to the lordship of Jesus Christ, who is the head of the Church. As a local autonomous church, we seek to edify, equip, and encourage one another for the above purpose. We also seek to maintain unity in essential beliefs, protect the church from worldly influences, participate in authentic, conservative, expositional preaching and teaching, and strengthen ourselves in a walk of holiness with Christ. We commit ourselves to be led by the Holy Spirit through praying, fellowshipping together, and maturing together in our relationships with love, encouragement, accountability, and self sacrifice. Discovering our talents and spiritual gifts for service, discipling younger believers, and training leaders for the future are all important aspects of who we are. In addition we seek to spread the gospel and introduce the non-believing community to the love, grace, and eternal salvation available in the Lord Jesus Christ.
