THE STORY OF FBC

How it all started ...

Fellowship Bible Church was started in 1983 by a few praying couples. They were praying for a church where the Word of God would be taught with depth and insight. They wanted to be a part of a church where small groups would gather in homes to encourage one another to worship, grow , serve, and reach out. The church met in recreation centers and schools until, in 1990, it built the main building of the current campus. In 1999, the annex added more children's classrooms and a place for young adults to meet. Since the beginning, small groups have been the heart of FBC. 

FBC Pastors

Since 1983, God has provided pastoral leadership to meet the needs of FBC at each point of growth and development.  Floyd VanDeburgh (1983–2007) is now currently serving with Strategic Impact, a mission organization dedicated to the worldwide equipping of church leaders.  David Doyle (2007-2008) has served as Pastor of Ministry Development at Kindred Community Church in California.  Jack Arrington (2011–2019) is still actively involved at FBC and spending time with his wife, Lael, in a new chapter of retired life.  Brad Neese (2020–present) is active in the Irmo community and is excited about leading FBC through their next season of seeing growth and spiritual transformation in the lives of men, women and children inside and outside the church family.

Where we are headed ...

It's a new season at FBC. We are building on the past, recognizing the present, and anticipating the future. In the midst of media upgrades, new Learning Center curriculum and facility improvements, our hope is that all men, women and children experience life transformation only brought about by faith in Jesus Christ.
God has some exciting things in store for FBC in the days ahead, and we are leaning forward with great expectation as the Gospel is spoken and shown through us in the community and world.

Let us be part of your story ...

We invite you to join us every Sunday as we gather for coffee (9:30AM) and worship (10AM).
