Our Story


Fellowship Baptist Church was founded in 1839 on Horseleg Creek Road.  The church was later moved to its present location on Burnett Ferry Road with some distinctive qualities, evangelistic heart, mission minded, and caring disciples.  When you visit us, you will find friendly, caring people who will welcome you and accept you as Christ accepted us.  


We have as our process of discipleship (following Christ): 

  • Glorifying Christ (worship),
  • growing (Connect Groups), and
  • going (serving & sharing our faith).  
We ask each of our members to be involved in these areas, and we invite you to become a part of this process as well.



Our Mission:

We exist to live out the Christ life, and to engage the disconnected into a vital relationship with Jesus Christ.


Our Command (found in Matthew 28:19-20):

  1. We will make disciples.  (A disciple is a follower of Christ who makes committed followers of Christ.)
  2. We will teach all people to obey Jesus.
  3. We will take message to all nations.

What We Believe

God:

He is our Creator and Ruler.  He has eternally existed in three persons:  The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  The three are co-equal and are one God.


Jesus Christ:

He is the Son of God and is co-equal with the Father.  He lived a sinless life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the world on the cross.  He arose from the dead three days later and is alive today.  He will return to earth again as King of kings and Lord of lords.


Holy Spirit:

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God.  He convicts the world of sin, convinces the world of coming judgement and of its need for a Savior.  He lives in every follower of Christ from the moment of salvation.  He gives Christ followers power for living, understanding of truth and daily guidance. 


Bible:

It is God's Word written by 40 human authors over a  period of 1,500 years under the inspiration of God about one subject, salvation from sin through Christ.  It is the source of truth and for right living.  It is without error.


People:

All people are made in the image of God but are marred by sin and separated from God but are transformed by what Christ did for us.  All people will live somewhere forever after death.


Salvation:

God's free gift to us through Christ's death on the cross.  We must accept it by faith in Him.  We can never be saved through good works or religion but only by His finished work on Calvary.  Eternal life begins the moment one receives Christ by repentance and faith.  Once a person receives God's free gift of eternal life, he or she can never lose it any more than a baby can be unborn once the baby is born.


Our Core Values


Positive Attitude:

We will demonstrate the Spirit of Christ in everything we do and say.



Passion:

Christ's love motivates us to be passionate about living, serving, and sharing Him with the world.


Authentic:

We will be real and people of integrity as we show Christ in a dark world.


Loving:

Christ loved us enough to die in our place.  We must love Him enough to love others unconditionally.


Missional:

We will have a heart to intentionally tell our world that Jesus is the only way to salvation.  This begins at home and ends with the farthest point on our globe.
