Fayette Bible Church is to be a modern biblical example of God's eternal Church, a fertile area for the growth and spread of the Gospel in our community.
As a modern example of God's eternal Church we make the preaching and teaching of God's Word the focal point of our assembly, we firmly stand on it's authority. Interactive age appropriate Bible study groups, community involvement, and mission efforts are avenues in which turning over of the soil of the hearts of men allow for effective witnessing opportunities along with areas in which the believers can progress in their sanctification.
What is a Bible Church?
One of the most obvious differences you may notice about our church is our name. You may wonder what a Bible Church believes in and stands for. This page will hopefully help you to better understand the doctrinal position and style of Fayette Bible Church.
- Bible Churches do not incorporate a denominational name because of their faithfulness to the Word of God is more important to them than the faithfulness to a denominational name or group. They do not oppose denominations as such, but have seen a progression toward liberalism in most of the large groups. Keeping themselves independent of denominational ties has helped to maintain their allegiance to the purity of God's Word.
- Bible Churches vary in their style of service. FBC has chosen to conduct its service in a traditional manner with emphasis on strong Bible teaching, evangelism, and conservative, sacred music.
Our church is Baptistic in doctrinal position and church government. We have a Board of Deacons that oversee the work of the church along with the Pastor. We have congregational meetings in which the whole church membership approves the finances, policies, and staff of the church.
We believe immersion to be the New Testament form of baptism to be administered upon the personal acceptance and public confession of Christ as Savior. Therefore, we baptize by immersion only. We believe Christ Himself established and commanded the ordinance to symbolize the believer's death to the old life of sin and his spiritual resurrection to the new life in Christ (Acts 2:41; 8:12; 10:47-48; Rom. 6:3-6). We believe that neither water baptism nor any particular form of its administration is required for Salvation.
The Lord's Supper
We believe that the Lord's Supper is an ordinance instituted by the Lord Jesus Christ to be observed by the redeemed in remembrance of His death until He comes again. It is not to be considered as having any sacramental merit nor are the elements to be considered in any way to be the literal body and blood of Christ (ICor. 11:23-26; Luke 22:19-20).
