Here at FBCWest we believe that Jesus, the Son of God, has saved by His sacrifice and our salvation is God’s gift not because of our value, but because of His grace. This faith that we have should cause us not to seek safety, but we should be “reckless” in our faith. To take risks as a result of faith. Risks in witnessing to others; regardless of whether or not they think we are simple minded; risks in loving others, though they may not love us in return; and risk the giving of our lives for Him and His purposes. Because as Paul stated in 2 Timothy “for I know whom I have believed and am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until that day.”
In conjunction with this emphasis we are emphasizing three aspects of the church’s ministry: The Word of God, Worship and ministry to the “Next Generation”.
At FBCWest it is our desire to worship God in Spirit and in Truth, being passionate about God and worshipping Him and taking seriously His teachings. We believe that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant word of God. In our worship services we have times of worship, prayer and Bible teaching. Pastor Joe Davis is a practicing attorney and teaches the Bible from that unique perspective. We also believe in congregational involvement. FBCWest Praise Band along with Worship Leader Lindsay Irvine gets the entire congregation involved in worship, various members of the congregation reads from the Scriptures at each of our services and there is time during the service to pray at your pew or at the alter. We believe worship should be personal and passionate. The “Next Generation” is to minister to our children in such a way that we give them the spiritual understanding that they may start their adulthood with a closer walk with God than we did when we became adults.
FBCWest is a growing multi-generational congregation where the church is family is more than a slogan. At FBCWest we take seriously what Jesus taught His disciples, “That they’ll know you are My disciples because you love one another.”
FBCWest has been ministering in the community for 61 years, and yet, it has the excitement of a new congregation. The congregation is multi-faceted in that it is composed of people of all age groups along with being ethically diverse.
