Our Mission

In the fall of 2010 our membership carefully crafted a mission statement with ministry objectives. After prayerful consideration, we chose the following mission statement:

Fellowship Bible Church exists to glorify God by following the Bible’s ultimate authority in making true disciples of Jesus Christ.

In order accomplish our mission, we highlight five ministry essentials:

Bible-Driven Ministry
Christ-Exalting Worship
Mutual Encouragment
Changing Lives
Evangelism both local, national, and international

The Bible is an unfailing guide (John 17:17) that meets all our spiritual needs (2 Pet. 1:3). It tells us how to think about God, how to live our faith, and how to organize the local church (2 Tim. 3:16-17; Acts 2:42-47). We, therefore, make it the centerpiece of our public worship wherein our pastor carefully explains its meaning and prayerfully applies its truth (2 Tim. 4:1-2).

Every Sunday we celebrate the gospel of Jesus Christ by worshipping our Savior. Our worship service is interactive (Eph. 5:19) and instructional (1 Tim. 4:13); it includes group and individual prayer (Acts 2:42), singing to the glory of God (Psalm 66:1-2), free and sacrificial giving (1 Cor. 16:1-2), Bible proclamation (1 Tim. 4:13), and encouragement to respond personally to the Bible’s teaching (Heb. 3:12-13). We invite everyone to join us as we “worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness” (1 Chro. 16:29).

The gospel saves us from sin and liberates us to serve our Savior (Romans 6:17-18). We at FBC are merely sinners saved by grace. Our gratitude for God’s mercy in salvation encourages us to obey Christ in all things (1 John 5:3). Although we stumble, we trust you’ll find us to be people who pursue Christ and serve others (Matt. 22:37-39).

We believe that Christ, as the Head of the church, gives every believer the ability to serve His body in a unique way (Eph. 4:15-16; Rom. 12:4-8). The church works best when its members serve one another. We endeavor to pray for one another (James 5:16), encourage one another in righteousness (1 Thess. 5:11), support each other in our needs (James 1:27), and value others’ needs ahead of our own (Phil. 2:3-4).

We take seriously Christ’s commission to preach the gospel the world over (Matt. 28:19-20). We support mission endeavors that share our core values and support several likeminded church-planters in Utah. We believe that a healthy church systematically evangelizes its community (Acts 20:20) in a culturally relevant way (Acts 17:16f). We sincerely desire to reach the Ogden Valley with the gospel of Jesus Christ (Rom. 1:16). By God’s grace, by the end of 2012 we hope to support multiple foreign missionaries, to organize member-led mission trips, and to share the gospel more effectively with the residents of our valley.
