We are a body of believers who love the Lord Jesus Christ and wish to serve our community because of our love for others.


FBC Sheffield Lake is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention.  You become a Southern Baptist by uniting with a Southern Baptist church, one in friendly cooperation with the general Southern Baptist enterprise of reaching the world for Christ. Church membership is a matter of receiving Jesus as your Saviour and Lord and experiencing believer's baptism by immersion.

Southern Baptists have prepared a summary of our faith called The Baptist Faith and Message. It serves as a guide to understanding who they are. Copies are available at Southern Baptist churches. The topics here provide only a brief, partial summary. The full text on the issues discussed is also available.
