Local Serving best occurs when Christ followers discover and live out the good works that God has prepared for them through obedience to the command of Jesus to be His witnesses “in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8). Local Serving is a response to the call Jesus Christ has given us to be His witnesses.
The primary focus and strategic direction that guides FBC’s local serve ministry is centered around efforts that focus on engaging the poor and under-resourced, evangelism, and church planting/leadership development. While it is common today to define the success of the ministry of the people of God in terms of the number of those who are attending the church, the actual success of the ministry of those “called out” is best defined by whether they are actually “going” out (Matthew 28:16-20). As such, FBC provides many real opportunities for our people to serve and share Jesus within a targeted corridor of our community.
