Fixing our eyes upon Jesus ... Hebrews 12:2
Fredericksburg Bible Church was
established in September 1977 by several families who felt that their
spiritual needs were not being met elsewhere.
Property and Buildings
The sanctuary was constructed in 1889, and was the home of Bethany Lutheran Church until 1954 when First Baptist Church purchased the building. During their ownership many additions including classrooms, offices and a fellowship hall were built along with a renovation of the sanctuary.
In 1988 Fredericksburg Bible
Church purchased the facility as their permanent home. In 2000 a major
renovation of the sanctuary was completed. The sanctuary is capable of
holding approximately 250 people.
Fredericksburg Bible Church is an independent Bible church that is not affiliated with any formal organization.
Jesus Christ as the head of the church.

Overseeing the congregation and
attending to their spiritual needs.
The church has various ministries that are internal in nature in an effort to edify and unite the body.
A monthly newsletter, called "The
Monthly Messenger," is published in order to further minister to our
congregation and keep them informed of current events and church issues.
We have a very active audio ministry. Sunday morning Bible class , Sunday worship service, and Wednesday night Bible study are recorded and distributed to those who can't regularly attend, and others throughout the US.
Evangelism is always communicated from the pulpit as we have a continual stream of visitors during our Sunday Worship Service. These visitors are generally tourists and are usually just visiting Fredericksburg with no plans to return.
Since Fredericksburg is a small community where most everyone knows everyone, a majority of community evangelism is done through one on one contact that is enhanced through social events sponsored by the church. Just a few of these events include an annual men's fish fry held at a members ranch, an annual family entertainment program at the church, a men's scramble golf tournament and an annual creek baptism. The baptism is a huge church-wide event held at a member's ranch. Visitors are regularly in attendance to the event where they hear a clear gospel message. This event also includes time of fun, fellowship and an old fashion country barbeque.
Fredericksburg Bible Church is missions-oriented with an approved slate of missionaries supported through prayer, gifts, and short-term mission trips that often include some of our congregation. These short-term participants are announced in the church prior to their trip and prayed for before and during their trip. Upon returning from their mission trip they share their experiences with the congregation.
In an effort to keep missions in front of our congregation we publish a "missionary of the month" in our weekly church bulletin and encourage prayer for all our missionaries. We also invite our missionaries to come and speak whenever possible.
We have various methods we use to embrace new attendees and enhance fellowship. The church has some social events that are blended with ministry that are designed to build relationships and promote fellowship. One example is a pot-luck luncheon after the Sunday worship service on the third Sunday of every other month. Another is our Ladies night out. This event brings the ladies together to have a time of fun and fellowship with featured guest speakers.
