It's about the Master and not the pastor

Sound doctrine, love and family is what makes FABC a perfect place to worship.

It’s like a big family of believers who recognize that we’re not perfect but we strive to be better every day. Pastor Luter is an awesome minister. His sermons always get the message across. The Bible studies are creative and very informative. Sunday school classes are by age groups so you’re sharing with people you can relate to. The choirs, (there are several) are so awesome. There are ministries for everybody. It’s a church that meets all of my needs. It is truly about the Master and not the pastor as Pastor Luter tends to remind us. It has been my church home for 28+ years.

This church has over 52 different ministries to carry out our creed to Exalt the Savior, Equip the Saints & Evangelize the sinner. Be blessed & be a blessing. Amen. Smiling Usher.

Friendly members, a great choir and conductor. The pastor gave a wonderful talk regarding goals for 2020, options for achieving them, and the need for fasting, including the benefits of it. He has a friendly, loving, sense of humor.
