Questions about the Xchange:
What is the Xchange?
Our Online Church Community... more than just downloadable audio or streaming video, this interactive webinar format now gives us the platform to develop personal relationships with individuals who can't attend our services physically but want a great church home where they aren't judged, can be encouraged, can learn, grow, make friends and get involved - no matter where they are in the world!
Using this online software tool, people who have a high speed internet connection, are now able to join and become full members of Family Bible Church & participate interactively with our Web-Pastors as they watch the live video stream of our Sunday service. Privately request ministry or prayer to respond to the message and a Web-Pastor will call you to do just that.
Log in early and stay on after the service to text chat with other Xchange members and get to know like-hearted brothers and sisters in Christ from around the USA and the World!
A unique ministry...
Established on a consistent foundation of God’s unconditional Love & His forgiveness offered freely through Jesus to every individual regardless, this ministry has committed to non-manipulative or controlling methods to offer people the Abundant Life that Jesus came to give us in our every day lives, at every level.
We’re a very down-to-earth lot… as you will see. The teaching we offer from God’s Word is extremely practical though not at all departing from the Power that God offers His children.
We’re not about “behavior modification” i.e. you don’t have to pretend here. Please be yourself – it’s ok… you’re OK. God loves & accepts YOU just as you are… and so do we! We're individuals who have faults and face issues too.
In time, as your core beliefs line up with God’s Word, amazing things will happen in your life… effortlessly. The change you might perhaps long for will happen,… from the inside out (and NOT vice versa), but this change doesn’t happen overnight either.
Participating in the Xchange community
Email and request a call if you'd like to talk with us urgently. If you need prayer, baptism, healing, in trouble? A death in the family? If you have any special needs… please let us know and keep us informed. Allow us to walk with you through this.
Technology today has given us the tools to connect with you across the World. Let's use these tools to grow strong & mature in Him and together reach the entire World with the Great News of God’s Love!
To grow and remain healthy, a church member should connect socially with others of like heart. Make a concerted effort to develop relationship with your FBC contact person & use Facebook, phonecalls or even online small group meetings online to get to know others. Facebook is a popular online social networking tool to use to share news, history, family info, pictures etc. Many of the pastoral staff and current FBC members are regular Facebookers.
This is not requirement but a $39 donation will enable us to mail a packet of recommended materials that’ll lay a good foundational understanding of who FBC is and what we teach to help you get grounded in the Good News! This includes: a Discovery Class (CDs and workbook that'll help you identify your gifts and talents), a certificate of membership, a CD set of teaching to listen to in your car or at home & a highly recommended book to read by Dr. Jim Richards.
We teach Biblically about giving and invite all our members to participate in supporting their church home as the Lord leads them. We do not manipulate. Biblical giving needs to come from your own willing heart for it to bless and enrich your life. Any donation of tithes or offerings; books, CDs or DVD purchases; payment of trip fees etc. can all be done securely through our Donation link online. Diligent financial records are kept and a tax-deductible receipt is mailed to our donors annually.
