Grow Through Discipleship

Baker's Evangelical Dictionary defines discipleship this way: "God has called his people to represent him on the earth, to be with him in every circumstance of life, to be transformed in personal character to be like him. That calling is at the heart of biblical discipleship, both in the Old and New Testaments." At FBCNS we strive to be disciples of Jesus. We do this through serving those in our community, recognizing His presence in the day to day, and allowing Christ access to every part of our life so that we can be radically transformed.

We understand that discipleship is a never ending process. There will be times when we are following Christ and other times when we feel far away. Community is vital to our growth. Through community we learn compassion and empathy. Through community we learn to do life together helping those in need and receiving help when we are in need. Through community we study God's Word together and bring our own experiences and testimonies to encourage others in their own journeys. Through community we worship corporately with our hearts and souls through learning, singing, praying, and giving.

We believe in the faithfulness and power of Christ Jesus to bring about radical change in the lives of those who are obedient to Him.  Bible study class will restart soon under the guidance of our new pastor, John Olsen. This will be a wonderful opportunity to meet new people, develop friendships, and most importantly learn more about God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
