Our Purpose

FSBC’s Purpose is quite simple: Love God, Love People and Love the Kingdom by promoting and demonstrating an intimate and personal relationship with Jesus Christ!

We do that by Reaching UP, Reaching OUT & Reaching IN!

Reaching Up: Jesus said that the greatest commandment was to love the Lord with all our heart, soul, strength and mind (Matt. 22:37).  We express our love for God by living a lifestyle of worship! Worship isn’t just a service we attend on Sunday mornings,  it is living a life that honors and glorifies God through our obedience, service, and devotion  to Him as we grow closer to Christ.  As we are Reaching UP to Him with open arms in Worship,  we love Him with all our hearts, soul, strength, and mind.  

Reaching OUT: We are not only to love God alone, but Jesus taught us that the second greatest commandment was to love our neighbors as ourselves (Matt. 22:39).  Our neighbors are those who are around us every day.  By loving our neighbors, we are reaching out to them with God’s love.  To love them is to serve them.  It is our desire to become more like Jesus by showing our love for those around us on a daily basis.  When we Reach OUT by being the hands and feet of Jesus Christ, we are loving others with Christ’s love.  

Reaching IN: The last command that Jesus gave us is known as the Great Commission, which is to make disciples of all nations! We want to help people come into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ (Matt. 28:19-20)!  Not only do we want people to know Christ, but we also desire them to be growing in spiritual maturity and becoming fully committed followers of Christ.  We make disciples by focusing on Biblical preaching and teaching that one can take home and apply to their lives in the here and now. By Reaching IN to God’s Word and becoming committed disciples of Christ, we are able to be used to help others in Reaching UP, Reaching OUT & Reaching IN.
