WELCOME to the MEADOW
a friendly country church serving Christ in the East Mountains of New Mexico
Family is a high priority for Forest Meadow, with Sunday School, Children and Teen Programs and an
annual Vacation Bible School supporting parents in bringing up children
in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Many choose to home school
their children. A vibrant and diverse youth
program provides a bridge into college life and beyond.
Another priority is Missions and we take the Great Commission seriously. We sponsor mission outreaches to the Tarahumara Tribes in Mexico and the Laguna Acoma Church west of Albuquerque. We have a dynamic Missions Vision and special speakers throughout
the year. Missions giving is very generous and God-led.
FMBC is also known for Serving. A free fellowship meal is provided after our AWANA Bible Program for kids. When a member
has a difficulty or need, this body stands ready to assist. During our popular annual Harvest Fest celebration, we donate gas and
propane to the community. We also have a wood ministry and a food ministry.
Theologically, FMBC subscribes to the Baptist Faith and Message, which we feel outlines solid Biblical doctrine and practices. We do partner with the Southern Baptist Convention of
New Mexico (and other like minded churches), but the Meadow is an independent body, unified and led by the Holy Spirit. Structurally, the
elders, deacons and staff form a leadership team which works together to serve our East Mt body.
At FMBC we believe the Bible is God's Word, Christ is Savior and salvation is about a relationship, not religion. The tone is one of support and generosity, with a willingness to humbly
confront Biblically, balancing truth and grace in a Christlike
manner. If God leads you to the "Meadow," you will find us hungry for the Word, excited about missions, committed to families and passionate about sharing God's love with others
