The First Baptist Church of Belleview is a Church with a great history, a strong legacy and a powerful ministry. Adopting Matthew 28:19 & 20 as its foundational purpose, the Church has under the sovereign Grace of God focused on several major activities through power of Jesus Christ with a foundation of prayer through the Holy Spirit. In order to keep the “main thing the main thing” this church has focused on the priority of Acts 1:8 reaching to the world by starting on our doorstep and taking the “Good News” of the Gospel to all parts of the world through a strategy of “local evangelism” that reaches into the neighborhood through events that attract people and training others to connect with people outside of the walls of the church.
Over the years, this church has planted several Churches nearby areas and sent numerous ‘Missions teams’ to many countries around the World from the streets of Europe to the dusty sands of north Africa and the hills of Guatemala!
Along with our youth, we have sent teams to nearby cities to help local churches with outreach and we have a “Helping Hands” Ministry that helps to feed the hungry and clothe the poor!
We place a great emphasis on Discipleship and have a strong Sunday school (known as “Life Groups” spanning all ages and often have over 80% of the Worship Service crowd are in the small groups. We also offer mid-week Bible study groups as well as new member classes. We emphasis our ministry to Children as a priority, and the reaching of the youth who need to hear about the hope that is in Christ!
Our Worship is integral to the fabric of our Church and we enjoy a strong Music Ministry with a large choir and a very active “children’s choir” who are participatory in the music program. The church is known for its ‘musical productions’ and especially the “singing Christmas tree” each year. We see the worship time as crucial for personal worship as well as corporate praise.
A great emphasis is placed on expository Bible based preaching and teaching and encourages through exhortation the application of the Bible to the everyday life of the believer ensuring that we provide a “relative message to the real world!”
This is a Church with a “servant” heart and we emphasize using the “spiritual gifts’ given to each person by God to transform in action! However we enjoy good fellowship and there is a “caring” core to the gathering of believers here at FBC Belleview.
“We use every resource available to reach every person available with the gospel of the Bible and then train and equip them to be effective followers of Jesus Christ!”
