Our Purpose

Our desire is to be used by God to help people experience the joy, the peace, the hope, and the purpose that comes from being a follower of Jesus Christ.


Jesus Christ called people to follow Him. Everything we do at Fellowship is designed to help you know God, love Him, and live a life that honors him.

our values

We value the gospel - we believe salvation is by faith and faith alone, in Christ and in Christ alone.


We value the Word of God - we believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God and therefore the source of wisdom for all aspects of life.

We value freedom in form. We are committed to being what God intends His church to be and

we believe that the Bible is clear about the purposes and functions of the church. A church should have vital learning, worship, relational, and evangelistic opportunities. But we believe God gives each church freedom in how it seeks to accomplish those tasks.

our history

Fellowship Bible Church was formed in 1976 as the result of several evangelistic Bible studies. The church moved into our present facility in 1978.

We are an independent Bible church not affiliated with any denomination. Our church philosophy was modeled after the original Fellowship Bible Churches planted in the Dallas area by Dr. Gene Getz.


Bil Gebhardt joined the pastoral staff as an associate pastor in 1982. In 1986 he was asked to become the senior pastor.


Over the years people have faithfully invited their friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors to visit our church. In 2002 we started a radio ministry called Fellowship in the Word. We are thankful that the Lord continues to draw people to our church and that we have enjoyed steady growth since our doors first opened in 1978.


Like any church we have people who have come from many different backgrounds. But one thing they have in common is a desire to know God personally and deeply. Many of those who now call Fellowship "home" are people that came out of a church or religious tradition that did not faithfully teach God's Word or present the gospel as a gospel of grace.


Perhaps the most frequent comment we hear is, "I've just never really heard the Bible taught like this before."
