About Us

About Us

Fellowship Baptist Church is not a place, but a people. People who love the Lord and strive to live for His glory and honor, yet we are, every last one of us, sinners saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, according to the scripture alone, unto the glory of God alone. We gather multiple times throughout the week for worship, prayer, Bible study, encouragement, and fellowship. The Bible is our authority for every matter of faith and practice, so when we gather we take God’s word seriously, and as we study His word, we get to know our God as He has revealed Himself to us.

Sunday morning ministry includes nursery for families, Sunday school for younger children, a healthy mix of God glorifying worship music, solid biblically grounded and gospel centered teaching, and a time of fellowship to get to know one another.

Our great desire is for those both in our city and around the world to come to know our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and to that end we believe evangelism to be central to the Christian life. We support missions globally, yet we also send each of our members as missionaries to their own neighborhoods, schools, workplaces, and families that the glory of our God would be revealed through the preaching of His glorious gospel.

We invite you to join us on Sunday mornings and learn more about who we are and how you can connect with us.

    Hello,

    I am studying John MacArthurs following sermon:

    https://www.gty.org/library/sermons-library/81-74/the-damning-deception-of-empty-words-and-empty-hearts

    The Damning Deception of Empty Words and Empty Hearts
    Sermons Matthew 7:21-29 81-74 Mar 29, 2020

    I came across your sermon on
    Enter Through The Narrow Gate
    DEC 20, 2020 Pastor Steve

    Would you say MacArthur is one those that has mistakenly define “doing” = “obedience (see your audio marker 10:30 thru 10:58 and 11:58) ?

    Any other recommended resources or references that cover material more indepth?

    I am focusing on what is needed to be saved vs live as a saved person?

    Thank you.

      Hi Felix,

      Thanks for the comment. Yes we need to be very careful in this area. Careful that we do not put the cart before the horse. Obedience to the Lord, the fruit of sanctification is not unimportant as it is God’s will for His people. But we never put that fruit into the salvation equation other than to say it is a result of salvation in a believer’s life. God is never going to evaluate our fruit to see if we earn heaven. It will never be believing plus fruit equals heaven. Rather we can say believing equals both heaven and fruit. True saving faith alone always results in salvation, and it also always results in obedience (not perfect of course). No, John MacArthur does not teach anything different in this regard. He consistently has taught the very truth of James 2 that faith which does not result in good fruit is not saving faith. Hope this helps.
