So…you’ve hung around our website a while, and maybe you’ve heard of some of the good things we are doing within the community. Maybe you clicked on a sermon, or saw one of our events and said, “Man, I should’ve been there.”
Maybe…just maybe…God is talking to you right now, and leading you to visit us at FAB. You want to attend a service, but you’re a bit nervous, and don’t know what to expect.
Well, we are glad you are here. Lets go over who we are…and what we are not.
We believe that God’s Love is the greatest power on earth. After all, it was His love that gave us a chance to have eternal life. John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” So, with the same love that God showered on us, we share it with everyone!
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” Acts 1:8
Do you remember growing up as a child and having someone give you some money? It may have only been $5 or $10, but to you, it felt like a million! To us that is what it feels like to be blessed by God. We know that God has far more than $10, in fact he has riches untold, but the fact that He would share even just a little piece with us, is amazing! Like that child who received the $5, we feel like we are bursting at the seams…we just have to share it! So when you come, don’t be surprised if one of our members wants to share with you how they have been blessed. We believe that what God has done for us, He can do for YOU.
Can you imagine if grass never grew? Or if trees never grew to stretch their branches to the sky? What if animals never grew, or humans stayed children and never grew up to become adults? Life wouldn’t so fun would it? A world where things stay the same and never grow just doesn’t have the same impact as a world that is constantly in a state of transformation and growth. We believe in growth…not just physically of course, but in our spiritual life, in our love for our family and friends, most importantly in our love for God. There may be a few growing pains along the way, but we are always seeking to grow together, as one, and closer to God.
We enjoy the finer things in life like everyone else. But there is nothing more fancy than the kingdom and riches that our Father has for us in heaven. So, no…we’re not focused on who has the newest car, or if your dress and suit is designer. We don’t encourage church hat wars, or even get mad if you don’t have one to wear. We simply desire for you to fellowship with a group of people who feel like family, in a place that feels like home. That’s FAB.
Whether someone has been coming to FAB for a month or for a year, there’s always a smile waiting for them when they walk through the door. We know you’ve had a stressful week. So did we. But God brought us through it, and that is enough reason for us to celebrate!
So bring your smile, and your praise…because we are here to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth!
