FBC BIBLE DISTRIBUTION MINISTRY

Our mission continues! FBC is partnering with recognized ministries to distribute Bibles all over the world! With your prayerful help, our church will be providing financial support to organizations whose purpose is to spread the Gospel by putting Bibles in the hand of those who need it most. For every dollar contributed to this ministry, the church will match it. Please consider a contribution and give to one or more of these organizations.
