FBC, About Us

Who We Are

Fredericktowne Baptist Church (FBC) is a community of born again believers in Jesus Christ who desire to become more like their risen Lord and Savior. We desire to glorify God by obeying him and his commission to the church. Therefore we place a great emphasis on preaching the life-changing good news of Jesus Christ and invite men and women to come and follow him in complete obedience.

Welcome Message

Everyone at FBC belongs to a family. Whether as a spouse, parent, child, or relative, family relationships are a significant element of church life. We make it a priority to minister to families because the church is a family of families.

Ministry programs are available for the entire family. Our key ministry is our worship service which focuses on our relationship to God by glorifying and praising Him through song and the teaching of his Word. We also have other various ministries that focus on our relationships to other Christians’ such as small groups, men’s and women’s ministry teams, youth and children’s programs. Another ministry segment we also focus on is our relationship with the world. Through various ministries of FBC such as mission projects, outreach opportunities, and community service we reach out on a community level as well as a global level. Please select the specific ministry you are interested in to find out more information.
