Heaven will have every nation, tribe, and tongue in unity. The church that begins to reflect that truth today will be blessed. We find this in Acts 4:32-35. Through the Old Testament, we find there is but one God. He chose one man through whom the world would be blessed. God desired one nation to light the way. When they did not, God gave His one Son to do what no one else could. Jesus prayed for the church to be in unity. When we are, He blesses us! A unified church powerfully focuses on the essentials of the Gospel, realizing the love of God and helping others experience it too.

One of the many challenges in coming together in the church is the wide diversity of people and talent. Coming together as one body or group of people, theologically, centered on God and His movement among us, coupled with our choice to obey, can be challenging. What happens next? If we are going to plan for the future to ensure we have a future we must wrestle with the idea that there are various people, talents, skills, thoughts, methodologies, processes, and more. What do we do when people rub us wrong? What happens if the power group is getting outvoted by the new group? There is the big problem. Why is it my opinion and your opinion? Why haven’t we sat down and talked this out before we are in a public debate? In Romans 12, Paul takes the 11 chapters of theology and begins to put them into practical terms. The church's beauty is that we are to be different from anywhere else our friends and family have gone. The church embraces you in the way of Christ. The church encourages you. The church enables you to fulfill your calling in Christ.

In Romans 15, Paul addressed some adjustments that would need to happen for the church to remain in diversified unity. Inevitably, when a group of people gather, the differences are noticed before the similarities. Paul dealt with this in Rome. The Bible teaches us, in this passage, to remove the labels we hand out to people and learn to love one another in Christ, for Christ, and because of Christ.

Lead Team Set 3 Goals for 2023.

1. Evangelism - it is our desire to see evangelism increase this year. A good way to measure that is through baptisms. Our goal is 12 baptisms this year. Evangelism Training is on March 12 at 4 pm.

2. Discipleship - it is our desire to see 50% of the worship attendance in intentional discipleship, whether in a group of 3-5 people or 1:1.

3. Community Engagement - it is our desire to see 50% of the worship attendance serving through community engagement initiatives. Look for sign-up opportunities.

About Us

1. We desire to see every person in Crowley and the near regions become disciples of Jesus who make disciples of Jesus. We are a Bible-believing church. Our command from God is to make disciples. However, that looks and feels different than it did when I was a kid! People are farther away from God than ever before. It takes more "touches" and deeper relationships before there can be spiritual conversations.

2. We will love people so they can move forward on life's journey. We have been saying this for a few months now, but want to keep saying it until we live it out everywhere we go! Because people are farther away from God than ever before we must choose to love them with patience, kindness, respect, and conversations - many conversations! We have to respect them as humans before we can discuss other matters. We must be patient with people as they work through the trauma that church and Christians have given over the years.

3. We have established a code of conduct for the FBC family:

  • Accept — We provide a welcoming, non-judgmental and safe space where you can take steps of spiritual growth. We are a group open to new ideas and people. We would love to meet you.
  • Recognition — We find the good in people and love to share it with others. We would love to get to know you.
  • Inspire — We motivate to mobilize people to fulfill their God-given potential. Let us help you reach the heights for which you are designed.
  • Serve — We engage our church and community by service projects, providing help when possible and sharing community resources.
  • Evangelism — We want to build real, trusting, relationships in order to share the gospel of Jesus Christ that leads to life transformation.
