Our Mission

We are a Christian evangelical church - A church whose primary purpose is to share the good news of Jesus Christ. The purpose of our church is to be a Community of Grace by leading people to become obedient, reproducing disciples of Jesus Christ, as He commanded in Matthew 28:18-20.

You

You are wonderfully made, and God loves you so much he sent his Son, Jesus Christ to die for your sins and give you a hope for eternity.

Us

God created us for community, each person uniquely gifted to minister to one another.

Him

God is all-powerful, and able to do more than we can ever imagine, according to His power that is as work within us.

What to Expect

Come as you are.  We have no dress code.  People attend wearing suits, jeans, slacks and even shorts. Some wear sandals, and others wear heels.
The 9:45 a.m. Sunday worship time is a blend of hymns, gospel, contemporary praise and worship music. The 11 a.m. worship time uses modern praise and worship songs. Some people just sing, others clap and raise their hands, and some simply worship quietly. We also believe in using all kinds of instruments in worship. We have guitars, keyboards, drums, tambourines, etc.
The pastor preaches and teaches in a down-to-earth and practical style that speaks to everyday life. We believe our answers come from the Holy Scriptures, so people bring their Bibles to church. If you don’t have a Bible, we will be glad to furnish one for you. Each pew has Bibles provided for your convenience. The styles do differ from Sunday (preaching) to midweek (in-depth teaching); however, all the pastor’s sermons teach the truths of Scripture.
Our teachers, pastors, and ministry leaders are here for ministering to the people. We are blessed to have wonderful children’s teachers and youth pastor.
We believe that we are all on this road of life together, each helping the other along.  We have people who have come from all sorts of backgrounds, heartbreaks, hangups and addictions.  So we pray for and encourage each other in our daily walk.
Our most important focus is teaching the Scriptures, proclaiming Jesus Christ as Lord, and living an obedient and productive Christian life of love. We believe that all those who place their faith in Jesus Christ as their one and only Lord, resulting in a willingness to follow His teachings according to his or her own level of knowledge and spiritual matuirty, are part of the body of Christ. The denomination we support (Southern Baptist) is not as important as being Kennedale’s Community of Grace to the unbelieving and hurting world.

Our salvation is not dependent on music styles, clothes styles, spiritual gifts, Bible translation or church structure we adhere to. We recognize there are differences in certain practices from church to church and even among God-fearing believers. Our goal is to focus on Jesus Christ and his teachings; therefore, we unite around the most important and essential doctrines of faith. When it comes to secondary issues, we seek to discover the truths of Scripture as we understand them and live according to good conscience without leading others into harmful or sinful behaviors (Romans 8:1-13). In essence, our desire is to be a loving and united Christian family that seeks to grow in the essential Christian doctinres and faith without being divided over minors.

We believe: In essentials — unity. In nonessentials — diversity. In all things — charity.

We believe in being a church that does more than just gather on Sundays. We make a conscious effort to plan several events throughout the year to make a difference by serving our community. FBCK has provided school supplies and lunches for needy children. We have served lunches to the faculties of many of the local schools. We have hosted a Back the Blue Sunday and luncheon to honor law enforcement, and provided gift bags to many of the fire stations throughout the area. We believe being a service to the area is a way to shine the light of Christ for others to see.
We believe each and every person is a missionary: someone called to take the light of Jesus to others. This comes through our acts of service, but also through our intentional support of missionaries and mission endeavors throughout the world. We train our youth to be mission minded by taking our youth to mission camps. Some examples of these missions include traveling to New Orleans, Louisiana where they worked on inner city improvement projects. Some of our youth have also been to Hungary for mission work, as well as provided support to a local clothing drive and soccer camp for refugees.

FBCK believe’s in giving financially to missions as well. We have adopted a missionary family in Canada who leads a small church in a struggling industrial town.

We also raised $7000 for a church in the Philippines to purchase a much needed truck.

In addition, we plan our Vacation Bible School with our community in mind by providing meals each night for children.

Our Doctrinal Beliefs

We are confident that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant word of God.
We acknowledge the creator – God our heavenly Father, infinitely perfect, and intimately acquainted with all our ways.
We claim Jesus Christ as Lord – the very God who came in human flesh – the object of our worship and the subject of our praise.
We recognize the Holy Spirit as the third member of the Godhead, incessantly at work convicting, convincing and comforting.
We believe that Adam’s fall into sin left humanity without hope of heaven apart from a new birth, made possible by the Savior’s death and bodily resurrection.

We believe the offer of salvation is God’s love gift to all. Those who accept it by faith, apart from works, become new creatures in Christ
We believe that God expects our lives to reflect that we belong to Him and that we are pursuing a holy life.
We believe that, as believers in Jesus Christ, we are members of His universal church and that the local church is the place God has designed for his people to worship Him, observe the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Table, and love other Christians.
We anticipate our Lord’s promised return in power and in glory.
We are convinced that all who have died will be brought back from beyond – believers to everlasting communion with God and unbelievers to everlasting separation from God.
