Vision and Purpose
The vision of FSBC is to be a Great Commission Church, giving glory to God. We are to make disciples by seeking to share the Good News of Salvation in Jesus Christ to Cornville, the Verde Valley, and throughout the world.
Statement of Purpose:
FSBC upholds a five-fold purpose, based upon God's Word: To WIN lost souls to Jesus Christ and membership in His Family.
Mark 16:15 To TEACH that we are to obey God's commandments. Matthew 28:19-20 To EQUIP believers for their ministry in the Church. II Timothy 3:16-17 To SERVE and encourage believers to use their gifts for service in the world. Ephesians 4:11-13
To GLORIFY and worship God in all things. Romans 15:5-6
We adopt, as our statement of faith, “The Baptist Faith and Message” as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention,
on June 14, 2000, in Atlanta, Georgia. We stand for these distinctive principles:
1.The Lordship of Christ
2.The Bible, the sole standard of faith and practice.
3.Salvation by faith in Christ alone.
4.Believer’s baptism by immersion.
5.Each believer a minister and priest.
6.Freedom of individual conscience before God.
7.Freedom of the congregation to govern itself without interference from the state or other religious body.
