In April of 1973, the group of people that would become Fellowship General Baptist Church met for the first time. They gathered in the Town and Country Restaurant, owned by Sid and Lois Ferguson. God wanted them together, and by July of that same year they officially organized as a church.
Over the years, God has blessed the ministry of this special people. Literally hundreds have experienced the life-changing power of the gospel: souls saved and souls reclaimed ; young men and women called into ministry; lay people trained and activated; and need-meeting ministries performed (the hungry fed, the naked clothed, the cold warmed, the sick and imprisoned visited; and widows, orphans, and handicapped cared for.
This is Fellowship Church's calling. It's our past. It's our present. It's our future. Today, we state our mission to develop faithful followers of Jesus Christ. We seek to accomplish this through the fulfillment of three objectives in the lives of our church family.
Reaching the Unreached
We will encourage and train the church family to bear (share) witness to their faith to those who have not yet accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord.
Building Healthy Christians
We will encourage everyone toward healthy relationships with God and other people.
We will encourage our church family to take advantage of the means of grace for spiritual growth through prayer, Bible study, worship and fellowship.
Preparing for Ministry
We will help our church family discover who God made them to be as we encourage them to find a ministry with which to serve the Lord.
