Plan Your Visit

We believe we can be an encouragement to you and your entire family no matter where you find yourself in life's journey. If you are looking for a church family, join us for one of our dynamic worship services and/or Bible studies. We look forward to meeting you.

When you arrive on campus...
Enter through the portico of the West Wing (accessible from Entrance A on Friendly Ave. or Entrance B on Jefferson Rd.) or the portico on the north side of the Ministry Center (accessible from Entrance C on Westridge Rd.).  Once inside, you will be welcomed by our greeters. They will also answer any questions you have and can help direct you to our Sunday School classes and/or worship services. Click here for a campus map.

If you have a baby or preschool-age children...
You are welcome to bring your young children into our worship services. However, we also offer Worship Care with age-appropriate environments where your child will be taken care of by supervised, skilled, and loving caregivers, all of which have successfully passed a criminal background check. The check-in station for Worship Care can be found in the breezeway between the Ministry Center and FABC Kids building. Just look for the "FABC Kids" portico located near the main portico of the Ministry Center (also, see FAQs below). Also, for your convenience, you may also register your children ahead of time (coming soon) to make the check-in process as simple as possible when you arrive.

As you enter for worship...
You will be greeted by ushers who will give you a bulletin which contains important news about the church and how you can get plugged in at FABC. For our younger worship participants, FABC Kids worship packets are also available along with the bulletin. Our ushers are available to assist you should you have any questions or special needs.

As our guest...
We hope you will let us know of your visit and a little bit about yourself by filling out our Online Connect Card. This will help us better minister to you and let you know what your next step is with us at FABC.

About our worship services...
We offer two worship services at 8:30 & 11:00am currently in our Multi-Purpose Room (located in the Ministry Center). Our services are "traditional" in the sense that we identify with the historical church and the faith that has been handed down through the generations by means of the clear teaching of God's unchanging Word. Our services are also "contemporary" in the sense that we seek to make the timeless gospel of Jesus Christ understandably relevant and applicable to today's circumstances. Musically, we are a blend of traditional and contemporary elements making the most of the talent God has blessed us with through our Praise Teams, Worship Choir, and Orchestra.

Dr. Dickard is a solid expositional preacher! He cherishes God's Word and takes care to unfold it one verse at a time. He takes the deep truths found in Scripture and not only makes them understandable but also applicable.

What is a worship service like at FABC?
Because our mission is to bring ALL people into the joy of a transforming relationship with Jesus Christ, our aim is to have a positive, Bible-centered impact on every person in attendance regardless of age, race, gender, or socioeconomic background. We value intergenerational worship. This means you'll hear a variety of hymns and praise songs led by our Praise Teams, Worship Choir, and Orchestra all aimed at exalting Christ and encouraging His church. We value prayer. Each week you'll have the opportunity to be led in a time of corporate prayer as we intentionally intercede on behalf of our families, community, nation, and world. We value the Bible - God's holy, sufficient, and inerrant Word. You will be encouraged and challenge with biblical messages that apply to your every day life.
