We believe the Bible is God’s Word. There is no other written revelation from God to us other than what is found in the scriptures.  The Bible was written by human authors, inspired by God, without any error, completely sufficient and authoritative for faith and life.
We believe there is only one God, who is the Creator of the universe and its Ruler.  He has eternally existed in three co-equal Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  He is all-knowing, all-powerful, holy, perfect, just, and righteous in all His ways. He is love and therefore merciful and gracious.  He is Father to all who trust in the Son.  
We believe that God the Father loves the world so much that He sent his only begotten son, Jesus, to this to die on the cross for our sins so that we can have eternal life.  He was born of a virgin and lived a sinless life which made Him the only acceptable sacrifice for sin.  His death on the cross was followed by His bodily resurrection to demonstrate His power of sin and death and the efficacy of His sacrifice.  He ascended to heaven and will one day return as King of Kings and Lord of Lords to reign forever.  
We believe the Holy Spirit is co-equal and eternal with the Father and the Son.  HE is present in this world to convince men of their need for Jesus Christ.  He lives in all Christians from the moment of salvation and brings power for living in the spiritual understanding and guidance we need. 
We believe man is made in the image of God and is the crowning work of God’ creation.  Every person of every ethnicity possesses full dignity and it worthy of respect and Christian love.  However, by his free choice, man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race and therefore passes on a nature that is inclined toward ins.  Sin separates us form God and only His grace can bridge the gap that exists between mankind and God.  
We believe there is no other way to obtain salvation or forgiveness for sins, other than through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ.  salvation is therefore by God’s grace accepted in faith alone.  Our salvation is secure forever because it is an act of grace and not self-effort.  Salvation means we are declared righteous through Christ in the eyes of God and by those means alone are made children of God.

Since 2004, it has been my blessing to serve alongside my brothers and sisters of Fellowship Baptist Church as pastor.  Pastors dream of being able to invest their love for people and God’s truth into a church family for many years.  God has saw fit to allow me to live out that dream here in Meadowview, VA.   Having grown up just across the state line, southwest Virginia has been a wonderful and beautiful place for Erin and I to raise our family and call home. I truly hope you will come by and visit with us.  I would love to get to know you and help you on your journey with the Lord.

Here at Fellowship Baptist Church we have a simple way of expressing who we are and what we do.  It is as easy as remembering our initials…FBC. We believe that the Lord Jesus has commanded us to be a church that FOLLOWS Him from a heart of worship; loving Him with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength. He has called to BUILD disciples that are intentional about making other disciples through the lives we live and the truth we teach.  Finally, He has commissioned us to CHANGE the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We know that only He can change a person’s heart.  But, we must be His hands, feet, and voice in the world.  There it is…FBC…Follow, Build, Change.  That is us and we would love for you to come and be part of what God is doing here!
