At First Baptist Church of Lockport we cannot stress enough the importance of discipleship. The final command of our Lord was that we make disciples (Matthew 28:19-20). At FBC Lockport we emphasize discipleship in three domains:
I. Corporate Worship
In Corporate worship we join together as a body of believers, disciples of Christ, to celebrate our unity in Christ through worship. We worship through song, prayer, giving, and the preaching and hearing of the Word of God.
II. Bible Study
Our Bible study times take place in a smaller group (10-20) of individuals going through similar stages of life. This is a more intimate setting in which we make much of the Word of God through study and teaching.
III. Small Groups
Our small groups meet in members’ host homes and are a time that we set aside for fellowship, Bible study, and evangelism. We emphasize that our small groups are an ideal setting for both the sharing and hearing of the gospel.
Worship with us on Sunday morning at 10:45am.
