FRBC exist to lift high the name of Jesus in and through every area of ministry

and life.

We are committed to Gods Word, committed to do our very best in being Faithful to His work, and committed to be bold Witnesses of what He has done in and through our lives.

The desire at FRBC is to know Him more, and make Him known to the world who so desperately needs Him.


FRBC exist to reach all generations and all people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

As we minister to those across the street, across town, across the nation, and around the world we realize that the motivation for such work is the Great Commission and the love of Jesus.  This is a church that realizes the importance of the call to be witnesses, to be salt and light, and to be faithful to the Lord in everything we do.
