- RBF History
- RBF Mission Statement
Reigles Bible Fellowship started in the hearts and minds of a group of individuals in the area who were concerned with promoting the worship of the Lord Jesus Christ and acknowledging His Lordship. That group of people also believed that scriptures are the Word of God, totally inspired by Him for our benefit, that we may see the death and resurrection of Christ as our only hope for remission of sins and passageway to eternal life with Him.
Reigles Bible Fellowship (now often referred to as Reigles or RBF) was founded by 21 believers and was incorporated in July 1989. Land was donated and the small group of visionaries took it upon themselves to design and construct the new building. After ground-breaking ceremonies in October 1989 work actually began in March of 1990. With Herculean efforts the basement floor was poured, the walls laid up and the structure under roof in a little over three weeks.
This project would not have been possible without the help of friends and neighbors, too numerous to mention. By the beginning of September 1990 we had a full occupancy permit. A big celebration ensued with over 250 in attendance. The actual date of the dedication service was September 19, 1990 which also included the installation of the pastor, Rev. Benjamin Brown. Thanks to all who helped make it possible!
In March of 2000 we completed another building project which included a new, larger sanctuary and fellowship hall. Many new ministries have come along: AWANA for the kids, an active teen ministry and Working Hands For Christ’s Mission (our lay missions group), to name a few. Along the way we adopted the phrase “Looking To Christ For Great Things” which still spurs us on to what He has for us – greater things than we could imagine!
The mission of Reigles Bible Fellowship is to serve God and to do His will, to provide a place of devotion and worship for the studying of the word of God, to win the lost to Christ and have the opportunity to come together to care, share, and learn with others.
We endeavor to support Biblical-based missions and to cooperate with other Biblical-based groups. Our goal as a Church shall be to evangelize the people with the word of the Bible and welcome all to the love of Jesus; to spiritually feed and support the Christian members, friends and community; and to grow and develop fellowship events to meet the spiritual and social needs of others.
We hold that the Bible is the infallible, inerrant Word of the Almighty God, written by men under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the Holy Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit.
We believe that Christ was born of the virgin Mary, died on the cross for our sins, rose on the Third Day, triumphantly and is alive evermore.
We believe in the personal return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for the catching away of His saints.
