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.

November - December 2022


Sometimes life’s stuff gets to us and we fail remember what our living is all about and why Jesus came in the first place.  So with that said, during our Christmas celebration let’s rediscover the hope behind why Jesus came.

The Psalms are not just the songs of the Jews. The Psalms are the songs of the redeemed. That means in every experience no matter how deep the pain, how great the frustration, or how exhilarating the joy, there is a Psalm that deeply resonates and communicates our personal story.  My Anthem- my song!

Sometimes our expectations collide with our Lord’s intentions and we just don’t understand why Jesus doesn’t come through like we think He should. This series we ask questions we have but are afraid to ask.

June - July 2022


We believe in a miracle making God and therefore we believe in miracles! In fact, believing in miracles is at the heart of authentic Christian faith. They are intended to bring the glory and love of God into bold belief. For this reason, John sets out to persuade his readers to believe in Jesus by telling seven stories about Jesus' work which serve as "signs" to help us fully know and believe Jesus.

What if the detours of life were intended by God to be a invitation and not an inconvenience, how would that change things? Although most detours are difficult and seem as though life is getting worse, they are really part of God’s design to prepare you for your future. So let's learn how to detour well.

January 2022 - April 2022


How is it possible that Jesus Christ can transcend all cultures and circumstances and be relevant to all people in every nation?  How is it possible that we can travel corners of this nation and be able to effectively relate with those that have a completely different worldview?  We are so different, so how is it possible?  It is possible because God speaks to us all through His Son.  Take a journey through the book of Hebrews and discover for yourself that Jesus is better.

There is a King


December 2020


Isaiah saw Him coming, the One who would be God's answer for sinners like you and me. He saw Jesus, the Wonderful Counselor, He came with wisdom and purpose, with a perfect plan. Follow Him. As the Mighty God, He will accomplish all His purposes. The Devil threw everything he had at Jesus and couldn't thwart God's plans through Christ. Hide behind Him. As the Everlasting Father, He loves us endlessly. Enjoy being in His presence. And as the Prince of Peace, He reconciles us while we are still his enemies. Trust Him and welcome His rule.

Reclaiming My Identity

June - August 2020

We live in a broken world. Broken, not by God’s design, but by man’s sin. Brokenness seen in suffering, violence, poverty, pain and death all around us. It doesn’t take much for us to realize that we need something greater to fix this brokenness. The gospel is the remedy. Jesus came to rescue us from our brokenness and do for us what we can’t do for ourselves.

Perhaps if there was a day that needed men to take the road less traveled and lead with integrity exemplifying in their example what it is to be courageous, today is that day.  If there were a time for men to step up and be counted not as casual Christians but as authentic Christ followers, now is that time.  If there was a moment of clarity that revealed true purpose and a clear path to follow, this is that moment.

Love Where You Live

May - June 2020

The messaging throughout this pandemic has terrified some crippling them in fear and keeping them in lockstep with all safety guidelines believing it is careless to open society back up without a vaccine.  At the same time, the same messaging emboldened others to live as they normally would not allowing anyone or anything to infringe on their freedom believing it is careless to allow protected rights under the constitution to be taken.  And then there are others that are somewhere in between those reactions; people wanting to care for fellow man but refusing to allow this to continue 1 moment more than necessary.


As a result, the rhetoric is ratcheting up and the political winds are blowing once again; the polarization of our country continues.  But what should be the church’s response?  How are we going to navigate through all these complex decisions in the midst of such complicated emotions?  We have all been impacted, but we have been impacted differently.  How will you stay grounded and steer clear of making judgmental claims or callused comments regarding anyone that does not see things the way you do?  Short answer?  Love where you live.

Mother's Day


May 2020


Moms give and give with little or no appreciation or affirmation, that is why it is so important that we designate this day to reflect on motherhood, celebrate our moms and affirm one of the most significant roles in society.  With all its stumbling blocks, pitfalls and broken dreams, for all the soiled diapers, crayons on the wall and spoiled plans, being a mom is a beautiful thing; it’s a natural part of God’s creative plan to bring love and tender care to light.   Today we honor you!

Living Upside Down


February-May 2020


What if we are living life upside-down?  In other words, what if we are missing it?  What if we are getting it all wrong?  What if all the things that we are living for are the wrong things or (at least) not the right things?  Is it possible that we have missed what it is to be a faithful Christ follower?  The Sermon on the Mount is probably the best-known part of Jesus’ teaching, yet perhaps it is the most misunderstood and arguably the least obeyed.  However, this teaching is the nearest thing we have to a manifesto that Jesus ever uttered for it is His own description of what he wanted His followers to be and to do.

All the Way


April 2020


This year our Easter celebration looked a little different.  With the threat of the Corona Virus looming and the appeal from the government to stay at home to help battle the spread, the church building was empty.  Butbe reminded, so is the Lord's tomb.  The symbol of of the Church has become the cross, an rightly so.  Without the shedding of blood there is no deliverance for sin.  But the strength of our faith resides in a resurrected Savior.  In like manner, the strength of a church is not measured by the attendance on a given Sunday, but rather as the body of Christ is scattered about how many are being the hands and feet of Jesus.   This Easter challenge is all about the provoking question our Lord asked after declaring that He was the Resurrection and the Life.  He asked, "Do you believe this?"   


All the Way - 04/12/2020

John 11:25-26

James the brother of Christ, struggled to embrace Jesus as Messiah.  But after the resurrection, everything changed.  Now the persecuted church that is literally running for their life looks to James to lead them to a place of security and stability.  FWBC Worship Pastor, Tanner Rosenbalm, expounds on the first chapter of James in this 2 week mini-series simply entitled James.

Living with the End in Mind


December 2019 - January 2020


Life is full of endings. It’s natural to want to push past the "endings" as quickly as possible in an effort to minimize the discomfort and insecurity that our ending can bring. Typically, we want to move on to more positive feelings associated with new beginnings, but we must not fail to recognize that endings represent significant turning points in life, and although the end may include some pretty complicated emotions, we do not have to live in fear when the end draws near. Instead, as believers of Christ we must remember, the end is so good and so glorious that we should be living with the end in mind.
