Our Mission

Together in Christ, we love God and others

WE ARE
MADE TO SERVE
 
FBCM deacons are chosen and ordained by the church to be servant leaders and ministers to the congregation. They serve in vital servant-ministries and provide service-oriented leadership. Deacons assist the pastors by providing care for the church’s members and other persons in the community.
WE ARE
BIBLE-CENTERED
 

Acts 6:1-6 describes a potentially divisive issue that confronted the early church. The issue was resolved when deacons were chosen for practical everyday service to their fellow believers. They collected and distributed food fairly to those in need, especially widows who had no means of support. The first deacons’ ministry helped free the apostles to devote themselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word of God.

WE ARE
LEADERS
 
Deacons are to be spiritual leaders and ministers to the congregation based on 1 Timothy 3. Their primary duties include but are not limited to:
 
  • Assisting with offering, communion and baptism.
  • Assisting in ministering to those who experience physical, financial, and spiritual crises.
  • Assisting in guiding and nurturing the spiritual life of the church.
  • Assisting pastors by encouraging and supporting the ministries of the church.
