GOD WANTS YOU TO LIVE LIFE TO THE FULL!

ABOUT US

FBC is a church in Groveland, and we help people like you live the life you've always wanted. Jesus tells us in John 10:10 that he has come to bring life in abundance, a life worth living! We believe that an abundant life looks like this:

 

  •  Knowing God
  •  Living in Community
  •  Making Disciples
  •  Changing the World 

 

FBC Groveland is a community of believers who believe that the local church is God's primary strategy to impact the world, and we've been doing that for nearly 100-years.
