Biblically Based – God’s Word is our guide, authority and conscience in everything. We stand firm where Scripture stands firm and remain flexible where it is flexible. It is through the teaching and preaching of God’s Word where we have knowledge of the Gospel, where sinners are convicted, where hearts repent, and where people are moved to serve Jesus Christ (2 Timothy 3:16).
Passionate About Prayer – We believe the attitude and action of prayer is essential to everything we do as individuals and as a corporate body. Nothing of eternal significance or value is ever accomplished apart from prayer. It is through our prayers that we align our hearts to listen to God’s Spirit, we declare the goodness of God, give God thanks, seek forgiveness, find supplication and abide in His presence (Psalm 45:18, Jeremiah 29:11-13, Matthew 6:9-13, Colossians 4:2).
Committed to those far from God- We believe that lost people matter to God; therefore, they matter to us. Jesus came to seek and save the lost and has left us here, in part, to do the same. Our individual lives and corporate efforts will reflect this conviction to pursue the dead churched, de-churched, and unreached in our community and beyond with the love of Jesus Christ and the hope of the Gospel (Matthew 28:18-20; Luke 19:10, Rev. 2-3).
Invested With Our Gifts – We believe that each believer has been employed by the Holy Spirit with at least one spiritual gift and many God given talents in order to serve the body of Christ. Believers are called to be good stewards of the manifold grace of God. Spiritual giftedness and maturity determines where and how a believer serves. We believe excellence honors God and reflects His character. We strive for excellence without compromise in all areas of our ministry and lives. (1 Peter 4:10; Colossians 3:17).
Committed To Community – Belonging to our community requires a commitment to being intentionally involved with others in accountable, encouraging relationships. We believe life-change happens best in the context of abiding relationships that together are pursuing spiritual growth in Jesus Christ. In clusters of caring people, participants share and encourage each other toward spiritual growth. (Hebrews 10:24-25).
Relevant in Ministry – We believe that to be biblical we must be traditional. We also believe that to be effective in our ministry, we must share those traditions in a manner that engages our culture and in a way that they understand. The Bible does not tell us to use only certain styles of music, or to present our message only through words. The Bible does make it clear, however, that we are to find ways to effectively bring the message “into all the world” in order to make disciples. We believe this will require careful scrutiny of everything we do – new practices and old – and a willingness to change when necessary within biblical parameters, in order that we, “by all possible means might save some.” (1 Corinthians 9:22; 2 Thessalonians 2:15, 3:6; Ephesians 4:11-16).
Acts 2:42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the
breaking of bread and the prayers. 43 And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and
signs were being done through the apostles. 44 And all who believed were together and had all
things in common. 45 And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing
the proceeds to all, as any had need. 46 And day by day, attending the temple together and
breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, 47
praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by
day those who were being saved.

Overtime: Junior high and high school students are invited to come hang out at FBC Higher Grounds after the football game on 10/28.
AWANA Store: With the new AWANA year off and rolling, it’s time to stock the AWANA store. The store would appreciate any donations of small toys, games, or other items that will appeal to boys and girls preschool through 6th grade. Donations may be dropped off at the church office. Thanks for your support!
Online Giving: FBC is pleased to now offer online giving! If you would find it convenient to tithe in this way or you want to make a one-time donation to a specific missionary or ministry (we call that a “love gift”) this option is now available to you. You can access online giving anytime from the church’s website, www.holyokefbc.com. We hope this feature will serve you well. Please contact the FBC office if you have any questions or concerns.
Upcoming Opportunities for Youth: FBC is pleased to announce that Mike and Micaila Frazier will be helping us to start a youth group this fall for junior and senior high students. More details to follow. Additionally, the Holyoke Bible quizzing team has begun regular practices. If you are a student ages 8-18, you are invited to participate. Contact Mike and Micaila Frazier for details.
Officer Mark Werts has been invited by our missionaries, Randy & Marleen Green, to participate in a short term mission trip to El Salvador. If you would like to support the ministry of Officer Werts, please pray for him and consider giving financially. At this point, he has raised the money needed for trip expenses. All future donations will go toward military grade tourniquets that will be given to the police officers trained in El Salvador. These tourniquets are about $28 each. The more money we raise, the more we will have to give towards supplying police officers with life-saving tourniquets. Thank you for your generosity and prayers..
Kitchen items and Lost & Found: Unclaimed dishes and other items have been accumulating at the church for the last several months. Please check the lost and found table today for any items you may have forgotten. Remaining items will be disposed of next week. Thanks.

Authenticity is central. Authenticity is essential. Whether it is knowing what you have discovered or purchased is real gold, or you wonder if you have genuine tickets to the Broncos game, or whether the cash you pulled out of the bank is genuine, there are endless pursuits in our life that are established on the p …
Recently, one of our kids was in timeout for the way he was treating his sister, so I asked him to go tell his sister sorry and to give her a hug and kiss. He gladly got up from the couch, apparently relieved that he was once again free, and merely yelled into the bathroom door where she was in mommy’s arms and said, “Sorry Bekah” and darted off.
Wings For the Weary
“He gives strength to those who are tired; to the ones who lack power, he gives renewed energy. Even youths get tired and weary; even strong young men clumsily stumble. But those who wait for the Lord’s help find renewed strength; they rise up as if they had eagles’ wings, they run without growing weary, they walk without getting tired.”
Several years ago when we found out we were expecting our first child John, Samantha and I took a “babymoon” trip to Mackinac Island in Michigan. Mackinac Island is unique because, with the exception of a single ambulance, there are no motorized vehicles allowed on the island. We spent most of our days walking the island or taking carriage rides and enjoying the warm summer breeze. However, one o …
A few days ago I shared the following verse on Facebook:
Exodus 34:6-7, “He passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, ‘The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion, and sin.'”
I shared that verse because one of the things I have run into quite frequently among friends, family and c …
As the New Year starts, this is the time of year when many of us are thinking about setting new goals. Reflecting back on the previous year might bring us a sense of gratitude for all that the Lord has accomplished in us. Or it might make us feel indifferent as we are uncertain of how meaningful life seemed to be. Maybe we did not lose that 10 lbs. we w …
23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
Here’s where you’ll find us
