We at FBC believe that we exist to bring glory to God by making disciples through Christ-like love and service to God, witnessing to those around us and to those God is calling us to reach around the world.

Our purpose statement begins with the beginning: God. At FBCSLO we believe that we can do nothing outside of His power. God is our focus, God is our purpose, and God defines who we are.

We believe that God wants to work in each one of us...even you! Everyday God wants to shape us and grow us to be more like Jesus. God uses the preached word, corporate worship, and our community to grow in us a call to witnessing to those around us. Gathering together on Sunday morning and in Life Groups grows love and service to God. However, we do not want our faith to end at the four walls of the church, God sends us out to a world that needs the gospel.
