About Our Church?

FBC Bemis Church History

Vision Statement
We will consistently seek to grow in our love for the Lord Jesus and to make that love evident to the world around by our worship of the one true God, loving fellowship with each other, growing in our knowledge of Scripture and walking accordingly, ministering to the needs of the ‘body’ of believers both spiritually and physically, and to make Him known by proclaiming the saving gospel of Jesus Christ as the only way for a fulfilled life and home in heaven.

No room in the inn?
Ah...there is room and we need you! Join us!

If you can help, please contact Joanne Prather.
Some items needed for RITI are deodorant and undergarments. The larger sizes (2X and 3X) go faster!
Other items needed are pocket size hand sanitizers, toothpaste, and toothbrushes. If you would like to donate money, Joanne will do the shopping. We also need people to prepare the meals and spend the night.
