NEW Sermon Series Begins September 11

Jesus sends his followers out on a mission. In that style, THE ONE, was developed as an encouragement for each of us to be engaged in the mission God has for us.

Go and make disciples of all the nations....

The mission of FBC is to make disciples of all the residents in Crowley and the surrounding area.

How do YOU fit into that mission? Have you considered that question? You have a mission that helps to achieve the larger mission of FBC which helps achieve the Great Commission that Jesus gave before he ascended to the Father.

This series of messages is taken from Matthew 10

Sept 11 - The Mission (1-8)

Sept 18 - The Environment (8-15)

Sept 25 - The Threats (16-25)

Oct 2 - The Tactics (26-31)

Oct 9 - The Responsibilities (32-42)

I encourage you to begin praying through this chapter and allowing the Holy Spirit to guide your thoughts to better understand the situation, the mission, and the opportunity.

October Emphasis on Fasting

Prayer Lunch October 2

That's not a typo! We are going to have a prayer lunch on October 2 as we start the month of fasting. As incredible as that seems it is possible. Watch this video to know more about fasting.

Each person will be encouraged to "fast" on a day in October. During this time of fasting you are to focus on the Lord. A prayer guide will be provided for you. The purpose is so that we can experience the presence of God in new ways and to seek the Lord's face concerning the needs of our church.

7 Things You Can Do If You Want Things to Change

Clearly, you should pray. God uses our circumstances to push us closer to him. But what practical responses should you formulate?

Many natural instincts are unhelpful in situations like this. Being impatient, critical, and blaming others is counterproductive.

So what do you do?

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.
