If you’re new to FBWS, we want you to know that you are welcomed, and we thank you for taking time to visit our website. Our church exists to encourage, disciple, and equip people who know Jesus as their Savior to live for Him, love Him, and serve Him with their lives. In addition, our church exists to introduce people to Jesus Christ and to tell them of their opportunity to receive Him as their personal Lord and Savior.
One of the best things about our church is how approachable and inviting everyone is. We have Sunday school (for all ages), a Sunday morning worship service, and a time of preaching and equipping on Sunday evening. On Wednesday night we gather for adult Bible study and prayer time while children and youth programs are enjoyed.
God's Simple Plan of Salvation
My Friend: I am asking you the most important question of life.
Are you saved? It is not a question of how good you are, nor if you are a church member, but are you saved? Are you sure you will go to Heaven when you die? God says in order to go to Heaven, you must be born again. In John 3:7, Jesus said to Nicodemus, “You must be born again.”
In the Bible God gives us the plan of how to be born again which means to be saved. His plan is simple! You can be saved today. How? First, my friend, you must realize you are a sinner. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Because you are a sinner, you are condemned to death. “For the wages [payment] of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). This includes eternal separation from God in Hell. But God loved you so much He gave His only Son, Jesus, to bear your sin and die in your place. “ . . . God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
My friend, “God . . . commandeth all men everywhere to repent” (Acts 17:30). This repentance is a change of mind that agrees with God that one is a sinner, and also agrees with what Jesus did for us on the Cross. How? ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved . . ..’ ” Acts 16:30-31 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13). Whosoever includes you. Shall be saved means not maybe, nor can, but shall be saved. Surely, you realize you are a sinner. Right now, wherever you are, repenting, lift your heart to God in prayer. Just pray: “Oh God, I know I am a sinner. I believe Jesus was my substitute when He died on the Cross. I believe His shed blood, death, burial, and resurrection were for me. I now receive Him as my Savior. I thank you for the forgiveness of my sins, the gift of salvation and everlasting life, because of your merciful grace. Amen.”
Be sure you are saved. Please! Let God save you this very moment.
After you are saved, there are three things to practice daily for spiritual growth:
• Pray -- you talk to God
• Read your Bible -- God talks to you
• Witness -- you talk for God
“Whosoever therefore shall confess [testify of] Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 10:32).
