Our aim is singular: make disciples — both locally and globally.
Local outreach is tough enough, but making disciples globally? How does FBC reach the nations? We pray!… We not only pray for our missionaries and the people they are ministering to, but we also believe it is our responsibility to support these missionaries financially. We send aid in the form of financial support, supplies and love.
Mission Trips — Our church also organizes short-term trips each year to provide vital, first-hand missionary experiences for our members. FBC plans and sends teams to travel to a wide variety of cultures and climates to help our missionaries with projects such as remodeling, construction and ministry evangelism. Here is a partial list of some of the places we have traveled to offer support; Moldova, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Ukraine, and Philadelphia, USA. For more information about these trips contact the church office at (256) 353-2711.

Annual Mission Conference — One of the highlights of our church’s year is our annual Mission Conference. During the conference, many of our missionaries return to Decatur for a long weekend of reacquainting us with each of their individual missions. It is a warm and wonderful time for the FBC church family and friends. There’s even special activities for the little ones at The Great Kid’s Mission Conference.
