Fellowship Bible Church was planted in September of 1988 by Tentmaker Bible Mission (TBM) missionary William Bagley, Sr. Services were originally held at the Lion’s Club in Pleasant Grove, Utah. In 1993 the current property was purchased and the church building was erected. Services began at 375 North State Street in Lindon in 1994. Then, after training and establishing lay-leadership and calling its first full-time pastor, in June of 1997 Fellowship Bible Church graduated from TBM.

Fellowship Bible Church is very blessed to be made up of people from all ages and stages of life. With various developing children’s, youth, and adult ministries, we have services and activities for all ages.
One great blessing of this ministry is the close family atmosphere it provides. In addition to our devotion to the Word of God and Worship of God during our services, we are involved in many other activities promoting fellowship such as camping (for youth and families), picnics, campfires, men’s and women’s retreats, and others.
Senior Pastor: Chad Johnson
Pastor Chad was born and raised in northern Minnesota and became a Christian at the age of 10. Following High School, he attended Frontier School of the Bible, where he was trained for Pastoral ministry. Pastor Chad became the Pastor at Fellowship Bible Church in July of 2015. He loves learning about Jesus, spending time with his wife (Sarah) and kids (Naomi, Elijah, Gabriel, and Caleb), preaching the Bible, taking road trips, reading blogs, watching sports (Minnesota sports fan), golfing, and eating chicken wings.
We believe the Bible containing the sixty-six books from Genesis to Revelation to be the complete Word of God.
We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Bible.
We believe that the bible was written by Spirit-controlled men; therefore, it is inerrant in its original documents and is the supreme authority in all matter of faith and practice.
2 Timothy 3:16-17, Revelation 22:18-19, 2 Peter 1:20-21
Concerning the Father
We believe Him to be perfect, wise and measureless in power.
We rejoice that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Romans 11:33-36, Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19, Isaiah 44:6, 1 John 1:5-7
Concerning the Son
We believe in Jesus Christ as God’s only begotten Son, begotten of the Father from all eternity to all eternity, very God; begotten, not made, being one with the Father; Who, for us and for our salvation, came down from heaven and was med man, born of a virgin, having an absolutely sinless life.
We believe in His sacrificial and substitutionary death for all; His bodily resurrection on the third day, His ascension into heaven, His presence at the Father’s right hand as our great High Priest and as Head over all things concerning the Church, which is His Body.
We further believe in His personal pre-millennial return to Earth.
Matthew 1:23, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, John 1:1-3, 14
Concerning the Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit is a divine Person, equal with the Father and with the Son and of the same nature. He restrains the Evil One until God’s purposes are fulfilled; He convicts us of sin, righteousness and judgment; He bears witness to the truth of the Gospel through preaching and testimony.
We believe that each person is regenerated, baptized, indwelt and sealed by the Holy Spirit upon believing in and accepting Christ as Savior.
John 14:16-17 Romans 8:9 John 16:13-14
We believe in the sovereignty of God and the free will of man.
Daniel 4:35, 1 Peter 2:16, John 3:16
We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell into sin, and is now, by nature, lost and totally depraved; that only through the sacrifice of Christ can man be saved; that in this dispensation God is offering full, free and perfect salvation by grace, apart from any human effort or merit to all who receive the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior, through faith; that when saved, the believer is the possessor of eternal life, being kept secure forever by the power of God, and is the possessor of two natures; that he may be victorious on a daily basis over the old nature, and walk in the power of the new nature, through the guidance of the Holy Spirit; that he is called to a life of separation from all religious apostasy and worldly practices, and is responsible to be a witness to all men, by his life and words, of the saving power of Christ.
Genesis 1:27-31, Genesis 2:7-9, Genesis 3:1-24, Ephesians 2:8-10,
We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ; that it had its earthly origin on the day of Pentecost, and is composed of all who truly believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. We are united in one body, whether Jew or Gentile, with Christ as our living Head; and we are responsible to keep the unity of the Sprit in the bond of peace, and to love one another with a pure heart. The hope of the Church is the rapture of the saints, which is our gathering together unto Him before the time of the Tribulation; and the establishment of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament.
We believe that both the Lord’s Supper and water baptism are proper and scripturally in order for the church age.
Matthew 28:19 1 Corinthians 10:16-17 Romans 12:5 1 Corinthians 11:17-34 Acts 19:5 1 Corinthians 12:12-14
1 Corinthians 1:10-17, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18,
We believe that the phenomenal sign gifts (i.e. tongues, healing, etc.) terminated with the completion of the writing of scripture.
1 Corinthians 13:8, 13
We believe in the person of Satan; that he is the unholy god of this age and that he is destined to eternal judgment in the lake of fire.
2 Corinthians 11:14, Revelation 20:10, Ephesians 2:2
We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men; the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to everlasting punishment. At death the souls of the redeemed are now absent from the body and present with the Lord, where in conscious bliss, they await the resurrection when spirit, soul and body will be reunited. The souls of the unbelievers remain in conscious misery until the last resurrection when soul and body are reunited. They appear at the Great White Throne, and are cast into the lake of fire to suffer everlasting, conscious punishment.
Luke 16:19-26, 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9, 2 Corinthians 5:8, Revelation 20:11-15
