FBJC Philosophy Statement:
PREACHING. To preach simply means “to herald” or to proclaim the truth of God’s Word. At FBJC we are committed to preach the Word of God using a variety of forms and approaches. This will be achieved through our Sunday Worship Service and special events. (2 Timothy 4:1-5)
TEACHING . Teaching is the systematic training and instruction in biblical truth. At FBJC we are committed to teaching the Word of God to every generation from children to senior adults. This will be achieved through structured classrooms, small groups and a variety of teaching methods (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
EVANGELISM. The purpose of evangelism is to equip and motivate believers to share their faith and provide them with opportunities to introduce their unsaved friends to Christ. At FBJC we are committed to reach others with the Gospel. This will be achieved through personal evangelism, small groups and corporate evangelism events (emphasis on personal evangelism). (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15, Acts 1:8, Philemon 1:6)
DISCIPLESHIP. Discipleship can be defined as a “shared life”. At FBJC we are committed to linking believers in meaningful relationships that encourage spiritual growth, accountability, and instruction in righteousness. This will be achieved through one-on-one relationships and small groups. (Matthew 28:18-20; 2 Timothy 2:2).
COUNSELING. The purpose of counseling is to offer hope and help that is distinctly biblical when individuals have lost their focus and direction in life. At FBJC we are committed to using the Word of God to develop true and lasting change in an individual built on the model of 1 Thessalonians 5:14. This will be achieved through individual personal counseling as well as small groups.
