The purpose of FLBC is to bring glory to God, primarily by fulfilling our divine mandate as set forth in the Great Commission:
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.“
We also seek and strive to glorify the Lord:
- by reaching up to Him in worship
- by reaching out to our neighbors outside the church, and
- by reaching in to our brothers and sisters within the church
Our purpose is stated in more than just our purpose statement. The purpose of FLBC is also in its mission statement, core values and our operational values. Our beliefs are summarized in our Profile of a Doctrinal statement. You can read about each below. The purpose of FLBC is to glorify God !
Our Three Fold Vision
The three fold vision of FLBC is to see God transform as many people as possible into passionate and productive followers of Christ. Our three fold vision is: To see the lost saved, the saved grow, and to be real.
The three fold vision that has become our motto is:
“To see the lost SAVED, — Matthew 28:19, 20
the saved to GROW, —– II Peter 3:18
and to be REAL!” —– I Samuel 16:7
