Welcome to Fellowship Bible Church!
Greetings! I would like to extend a warm welcome to you as you visit our website. I hope that you will find the Bible notes, sermon audio, and other documentation to be of help to you as you study the Bible, and consider what kind of church God wants you to attend.
If you are wondering where to go to church, please visit and see for yourself what we are all about. You can find directions and service times if you look at the Quick Info menu on the left side of this page. When you arrive at Fellowship Bible, you will find friendly people, a solid old school building that is receiving some TLC, and most importantly, folks who desire to worship the Lord Jesus Christ in spirit and in truth with traditional-style music and sound expositional Bible preaching. If you don't find the answer to your questions on our website, please contact me here and I will be glad to get back with you.
If you are not a Christian, may I invite you to consider what the Bible says about God, man, sin, and Jesus Christ? One way you can do that is to click the Bible Resources menu at the left, and then select "Tracts and Testimonies." I can tell you that when I was a young man, I was brought up going to church. Somehow I knew, though, that just going to church did not make you a good person! There are lots of people who go to church that do not act like it. What was important was the message that the Bible taught.
That simple messages includes the fact that God exists and that he created mankind to have a perfect relationship with him. However, the first man snubbed God and chose his own way. This was the first human sin. As a result, his offspring (me included) became sinners too. We are by nature those who tend to go against the grain of God's desires. Our hand is always in the cookie jar, so to speak, when it is not supposed to be. Well, I was a young boy and I knew that I did wrong. My parents could have told you that without any hesitation. I didn't like the feeling of doing wrong, particularly since I knew God was not pleased with that.
I learned that the Bible says that if I am not perfect, I am not going to "make the cut" and get into heaven. That was a problem, because I was afraid to go to the other place! But the good news was that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to the earth, died in my place for my sins, and rose again from the grave. If I would believe in him, the Bible says, I would have eternal life. Well, problem solved! I had no good reason to think there was some other way to get to heaven (there isn't) so I believed in Jesus and that was it--I became a Christian. I now "made the cut," not because I was a superstar, but because Jesus is the perfect "Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world."
Contrary to many other religious sytems, the teaching of eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ is that simple--receive him and you will be saved! There are no specific things that one can do (good works) in order to be saved. Just expressing a committed trust in the Lord Jesus Christ is all that God asks.
Please do not hesitate to come or give a call if you have questions of a spiritual nature. We would be glad to be of whatever help we can.
Warmest regards through the Lord Jesus Christ,
Pastor Matt Postiff
