We believe that God created humans to have fellowship with Him, but they defied God by sinfully going their own way. As a result, we need God’s saving grace to end our alienation from God. Salvation comes only through God’s grace-not human effort-and must be received personally by repentance and faith.

Christmas Revolution


December 2019


Let’s set an appropriate tone but to make room for Jesus  this Christmas.  In fact, let’s make Him the primary focus of our celebration by declaring a Christmas revolution.  There is plenty of room for all the fun and festivities that this season can bring, but let’s take our holy day back.  There is something special happening this time of year and with great effort we can focus our attention and celebrate Jesus.


Love One Another- 12/01/2019

John 13:34-35



November  2019

No doubt we recognize it is appropriate for us to be thankful when blessings come our way?  But is it possible to be thankful when things do not turn out as planned?  What does it mean to be truly thankful?  How important is it for us to offer our thanksgiving?

Ephesians 5:14-20

You, Me, We


October - November 2019


We want our relationships with each other (especially marriages) as enriching as possible. But a common challenge we all face is a mutual lack of understanding about how each of us views and processes the world around us. Join us as we take an honest look at marriage and relationships and discover how the gospel of Jesus Christ can set us free to experience a piece of Heaven right here on Earth.

Long before Elisha became a hero of faith, he was stuck in the repetitive moments of the ordinary.  But he reached for something more and God granted it to him; it  changed his life and his generation in the process.  His story has the potential to change us today as well. Join us as we learn about Elisha.

Many see education as a program of schooling that we achieve or an institution that we attend.  But it is far more than that.  Education is a process that does not just prepare us for life; it extends us the opportunities in life.  With that said, when we stand at the crossroads of opportunity to make our decisions, which voice do we listen too?

Famous Last Words


April - May 2019


These are the Lord’s final moments before Jesus dies.  I am sure there are plenty of things the Sovereign King could have said.  Yet, these are His final words.  With all that He is experiencing and all that He could say or do, Jesus offered up these final words.  What must we learn from this?

The Light Has Come

November - December  2018

Christmas is filled with lights.  But Jesus is the true light, the original light from which all light has its source.  In John’s Gospel, you find a conflict between light (which represents God, His goodness, and eternal life) and darkness (which represents Satan, sinfulness, and eternal death).  However, it is Jesus who shines in great brilliance, full strength and power and is the perfect expression of all God wants man to be.  He is the Light that give us life.  Do you really want to have a merry Christmas?  Let’s make it about Jesus, the one who gives life.

This is Us


September - October  2018


Since the beginning of the movement we call church, there has been a faithful remnant.  There has always been a group of people who understands that the movement of Jesus Christ, must move.  That is to say that there has always been a group of mission minded Christ followers who gather in Jesus name only to make much of Jesus.  With their whole heart they strive to tell the whole world that Jesus saves.

Fake News- The Bible Doesn't Say That


July - August  2018


Fake news has taken American culture by storm especially in the political arena where these stories are extremely toxic and polarizing.   Obviously, there are certain stories we can quickly identify as being fake written to get a reaction.  However, there are other fake news feeds that are not so easily understood as being counterfeit.  In this series there are familiar headlines many believe to be biblical principles and spiritual truths when in fact the Bible does not say that.

Chasing Life Found in Christ


June - July 2018


When militants from the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) moved into northern Iraq, they begin identifying Christian-owned property.  Families would find the Arabic letter “nun” (noon) or letter “n” painted on their homes, churches and businesses.  The single letter conveyed the powerful accusation that occupants and owners were “Nazarenes”; they were people who followed Jesus of Nazareth rather than Islam.  They were Christians.

That provokes a question, “R-U-N ?”  Is there enough evidence in your life to label yourself a Christian?  “R-U-N ?”  What does being labeled “n” in our context look like?  “R-U-N ?”  Why would anyone put their life on the line like that anyway? 

Don’t run from God, but run to Him chasing life in Christ

Be the Difference


April 2018 - May 2018


The church has been delivered from serving the flesh and has been raised up as the children of God to walk in victory. But how many times have you served God for a while and then turned your back on Him to do evil in His sight? How many times have you come to your senses, repented and cried out for deliverance from the bondage of sin? How many times has God restored you to a life of blessing just for you to repeat the same bitter cycle?

The flesh reigns when God’s people choose to do evil in the sight of the Lord. The flesh reigns when God’s people choose to sin. Doesn’t that frustrate you? Don’t you want to live in victory? Don’t you want to defeat the enemy? Don’t you want to triumph over the sin of the flesh?  The Gospel is the catalyst needed for you to be the difference.

What in the World


March 2018 - April 2018


"What in the world, what is with all this Jesus stuff?"  How many times has someone you have known express that kind of sentiment.  So how does one make that journey from being a skeptic, a cynic or someone that just doesn’t understand what faith in Christ is all about to one who not only recognizes the value of what we do but fully embraces what we do and become a part of God's family?  How does one make the transition from looking curiously from outside the church to celebrating authentically inside the church?  What is in the world makes the difference?  It's all about the gospel; for God so loved!

Life in the Wild


February 2018 - March 2018


Living in our broken world can be hard.  Instead of the perfection of Eden, our world is wild and full of struggle.  But because of Christ, life can also be joyful and full of hope!  Walking through Genesis 3, Dan DeWitt shows us how we can look at this world realistically but without despairing, as we wait for God to keep his wonderful promise to bring us out of the wild and into his perfect creation.  The opening sermon is presented by Dan DeWitt who was celebrating his new book release with our ministry.  The following messages will expound the early chapters of Genesis and build upon those themes as we seek to navigate our life in the wild holding on to the hope of the Gospel of Christ.

Hello, I'm New

January 2018

Regardless of the embarrassment we may suffer or the awkward moments we endure, if we are going to have new life, then we must return to God.  True repentance is an authentic pursuit to do what is right in the eyes of God as we humble ourselves before Him even if it requires humbling ourselves before man also.

With Us

December 2017

Life is full of decisions, yet sometimes we get tired of making decisions.  We come home determined not to make another decision the rest of the evening.  However, some decisions are of such importance and so urgent that we simply cannot put them off.  It is a matter of life or death.  We cannot afford to put off the decision to believe in Christ.   Jesus is calling and He is with us!  Will you simply make the decision to believe in Christ, and experience real life!  Life at its fullest.  Life as God intended us to experience.

It's Simple

October 2017 - November 2017


No matter what others may say or do, put your faith in Jesus!  Let no one keep you from knowing Jesus.  Let nothing keep you from loving Jesus.  This is who we are.  This is what we do.  This is God’s will for our lives.  We give our life to know, love and follow Jesus Christ!

When you think about it, it’s simple.  The more you know, love and follow this gospel of Jesus, the more you encounter life altering power that changes everything from the inside out.  When you know, love and follow it produces a conviction.  It challenges sin and it instills a confidence full and complete in Christ.

I am not sure where you are at in your journey of self-discovery.  Maybe you are on the front end trying to figure out who you are.  Maybe you are on the back end trying to remember who you were meant to be.  Or maybe you are somewhere in between trying to close that gap between who you are and who you want to be.  No matter where you find yourself, I want you to experience the joy of discovering who you are and the freedom of discovering who you are not. 

It won’t be easy.  There are no shortcuts, but God has not given up on you.  So, don’t give up on yourself either.  It’s never too late to be who you might have been if you focus or refocus upon Him.

Ride the Divide

June 2017 - July 2017

There is a divide that exist between knowing about God and His word and obeying God and His word.  This series is about bridging the gap that exist between where we are and where God wants us to be.   We want to ride that divide.  We want our life to bridge that gap in order to make a measurable and meaningful difference in life.  We don’t really know truth until we start obeying truth.  And perhaps there is no better example to consider how that plays out practically than what is laid out in the Gospel of Luke.

The Collective, the Student Ministry of FWBC, went to summer camp and were challenged to wake up to the message of Jesus Christ.  They learned within community of other students to go all in for Jesus; to focus on the freedom of a bright future as provided by the gospel.  Below are 2 messages.  One from the camp speaker, John Decker,  that was shared the week the students returned with our entire congregation.  The other is from our student pastor, Ben Hays, the week following in an effort to get woke and stay woke together.

Jesus Greater Than

April 2017 - June 2017

So many look without truly seeing.  They are half awake, half aware or even half alive.  Going through the motions of life, yet lacking vitality in life.  And as a result, they see less, experience less, enjoy less.  We are in such a hurry that we don’t fully appreciate the beauty that is right before our eyes.  So, it is within our relationship with God.  It’s possible that we give God a passing glance instead of hallowing His name.  It’s possible that we have settled for a god that fits in the constraints of our mind instead of the God who is able to do immeasurably more than all we can even imagine.  It’s possible that we rush by with a casually and really miss worshipping the God of wonders authentically.  Jesus is greater than all else.  Don't miss Him!
