Sunday School 9:15AM, Sunday Worship 10:30AM

At FBC, we celebrate the gospel, which stands at the center of our lives, our families, and our church. The gospel is the good news that we have fellowship with the triune God through the finished work of Christ.

We live in a world that’s unable to meet our deepest longing. Our soul is eternal; the temporal cannot satisfy it. Our soul is exceptional; the trivial cannot satisfy it. Yet what does the world offer? You guessed it: the temporal and trivial. It offers innumerable gizmos, gadgets, and other mind-numbing distractions. It offers extreme sports, virtual reality, and reality TV. It offers amusements upon amusements. Accompanying all these offers are promises of happiness, but the world fails to deliver on its promises. We know there’s more to this life than the material, temporal, and trivial. We know there’s something beyond the here-and-now. We know this because God “has put eternity in our hearts” (Eccl. 3:11).

God made us for something greater than anything this world has to offer. He created us in His image, so that we might find our joy in Him. But we have sinned against Him and broken away from Him (Eph. 2:1–3). And now we are under His just condemnation (Rom. 3:10–18). Thankfully, the story doesn’t end here. The Son of God has drawn near to us in the incarnation. He has clothed Himself with our humanity—body and soul. He has experienced life in a fallen world. Upon the cross, He was bruised, that we might be healed; humiliated, that we might be exalted; condemned, that we might be justified. At that moment of utter darkness and forsakenness, He bore our sin and shame while drinking the cup of God’s wrath (Rom. 3:21–26).

When we come to God through Christ, we know God’s forgiveness and our deepest longing is satisfied because God becomes ours (1 Peter 3:18). His power is ours to protect us; His wisdom is ours to direct us; His mercy is ours to pity us; His grace is ours to pardon us; His love is ours to refresh us; His joy is ours to satisfy us. Moreover, He’s “our God forever and ever” (Ps. 48:14).

At FBC, we are committed to the celebration of this glorious truth: “Blessed are the people whose God is the LORD” (Ps. 144:15).
