So, if you think it's time to join FBC, here is what you need to do next. On any Sunday stop by the information table located in the main foyer entrance. Our Pastor and staff will be present to talk to you about the mission, vision, and strategy, as well as, various ministries and opportunities at FBCF. You will then receive a special information packet with membership forms included. Simply complete the form, return it to the office and we'll contact you to finalize the process.
Why is membership important?
Membership helps the staff to identify the people in whom we can trust to lead and care for others. Membership identifies that a person has a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and that he/she is willing to go public with that faith through baptism. Membership identifies that a person is willing to support this ministry with their time, talents and treasure and to be held accountable to the values of FBCF. With the added requirement of participation in a strategic service team or ministry team, it also identifies that the person will partner with us in our strategy.
Why is it important to be a member in order to be in a leadership role?
Because of what membership represents, members are the most qualified people to be in a leadership position. Often, if people are not willing to be held accountable, to go public with their faith through baptism, or to commit to leading people in life-changing a relationship with Jesus Christ, it can be an indication that they are not ready to lead others within the church environments.
What does membership indicate?
Membership indicates that you are willing to partner with the church to help us lead people in a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ. Members can draw great satisfaction from knowing that they are instrumental in leading others into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
