What you will find at FBC
A group of imperfect people whose lives have been radically changed by the gospel of Jesus Christ. This change should be visible in how we serve each other today, and in genuinely caring about you.
We have extra special care for the tiniest of our church family (birth to 4 years old). A beautiful nursery is available on the second floor during Sunday School. Our nursery is always staffed by adult volunteers.
Please note that, for the time being, nursery care and children's church have been suspended during the worship service time due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Children's Church Treehouse
Kiddos 4 years old - 5th grade head upstairs to our treehouse to experience a fun time of learning and exploring God's word with friends. All children's church and nursery volunteers have background clearances.
Worshiping with Us
Who we Worship
We worship the one true God, the creator and sustainer of everything (Hebrews 1:3; 11:3). This one God exists for all time in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
Call To Worship
This is a reading of scripture that reminds us of the Glory of God and calls us to respond to Him with praise and worship.
We encourage each other and praise God when singing contemporary Christian music and some traditional hymns. We sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs with thankfulness in our hearts to God (Colossians 3:16).
Scripture Reading and Teaching
All scripture is breathed out by God and all scripture is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16). We teach all scipture, even the hard parts.
We pray for mercy, strength, wisdom, healing, missionaries, our nation, our community, the global church, persecuted Christians, and First Baptist Church, Bradford. We pray in the name of Jesus, and we pray everything for the glory of God (John 14:13).
Generosity is evidence of God's grace in our lives. We give freely because that's what Jesus did for us. (2 Corinthians 8:9).
