We have a ministry for you

"Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many." -1 Corinthians 12:12-14 (NIV)

Church is more than where we go; it's who we are. At FAB, we believe God has blessed each one of us with unique gifts and talents, and it is our responsibility to use those gifts to glorify His name, build up His church, and serve His people.

If you are looking for a way to serve God and others, find your place in one of our ministries. If you're ready to get involved, click here and one of our ministry leaders will contact you soon.
