MISSION AND VALUES
Prepare and Deploy Dependent Disciples
Out of a desire to glorify God as a spiritual community, the mission of Fellowship Bible Church is to prepare and deploy dependent disciples of Jesus Christ who change their world for Him as they are being changed by Him.
Making disciples is what Jesus has called us to do. That calling involves bringing people to faith in Christ and equipping them for service “to prepare” disciples.
Jesus has also sent us into this world to be a witness. Therefore, we also desire “to deploy” disciples—deploy them in their homes, neighborhoods, communities and around the world.
However, we do not want to prepare and deploy disciples who enter into this holy calling in their own strength and power. It is disciples “dependent” on the finished work of Jesus Christ that we trust will be raised up through the ministries of Fellowship Bible Church. When dependent disciples are prepared and deployed, change will take place in people’s lives.
