About FBCD 

FBCD Mission: To provide church life experiences to ensure that every member grows spiritually in action, word, and deed, so that we all speak the same thing and that we may be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. 1 Corinthians 1:10

  • We believe - the Bible to be the inspired Word of God, and our only infallible authority.
  • We believe - that the Lord Jesus Christ and the Bible should have pre-eminence in the church, home and each person's life.  By doing this, there is a joyful, useful and victorious Christian testimony.
  • We believe - that we are commissioned by our Saviour to..."Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature."  We want to witness effectively in Newport News, and to all parts of the world.
  • We believe - that the Lord Jesus Christ has left a legacy of joy to all who would commit their life to Him.  We believe in being joyful here on earth and through all eternity.


Our theme for this year is "Kingdom Building through Evangelism, Empowerment and Exemplified Love."  I Peter 2:9 tells us, "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called ye out of darkness into his marvellous light."  We have been chosen to: center our lives on God and live a lifestyle of workshop and praise that will bring glory to God; connect with God and other members in the body of Christ to experience real fellowship; cultivate Christian maturity and godly character to become like Christ; contribute something back by using our talents, gifts, and abilities to serve God; and communicate (evangelize) God's love to others and develop a heart for the world (lost).





Church Covenant:

Having been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of GOD, to receive the LORD JESUS CHRIST as our personal SAVIOR; and on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we do now in the presence of GOD, Angels and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully Enter Into Covenant with one another, as one body in CHRIST.

We engage, therefore, by the aid of the HOLY SPIRIT, to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this church in knowledge and holiness; To give it a place in our affections, prayers, and services above every organization of human origin; To sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrine; To contribute cheerfully and regularly, as GOD has prospered us, toward its expenses, for the support of a faithful and evangelical ministry among us, the relief of the poor and the spread of the Gospel throughout the world. In case of difference of opinion in the church, we will strive to avoid a contentious spirit, and if we cannot unanimously agree, we will cheerfully recognize the right of the majority to govern.

We also engage to maintain family and secret devotion; To study diligently the word of GOD; To religiously educate our children, to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintance; To walk circumspectly in the world; To be kind and just to those to those in our employ, and faithful in the service we promise others; Endeavoring in the purity of heart and good will toward all men to exemplify and commend our holy faith.

We further engage to watch over, to pray for, to exhort and stir up in each other unto every good word and work; To guard each other's reputation, not needlessly exposing the infirmities of others; To participate in each other's joys, and with tender sympathy, bear one another's burdens and sorrows; To cultivate Christian courtesy; To be slow to give or take offense, but always ready for reconciliation, being mindful of the rules of the Savior in the eighteenth chapter of Matthew, to secure it without delay; and through life, amid evil report, and good report, to seek to live to the glory of GOD, who hath called us out of the darkness into his marvelous light.

When we remove from this place, we engage as soon as possible to unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of GOD'S WORD.
