In 2016, we set our focus on PRAYER & EVANGELISM. With a renewed spirit, we gathered together to plan new outreach ministries to reach those around us with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. These ministries give us the opportunity to present the Gospel and reach out to those who may need prayer and an encouraging Word, and to let them know there is a God in heaven Who cares about them. In January 2016, we initiated our " Prayer Conference Line", originally scheduled for three-months. Being led by the Spirit of God, the team who began the daily conference call have continued to the present time. That which started as a mustard seed has become a mighty move of God answering prayers, not only for our FBC church family, but for many outside our church body. The participants of these ministries faithfully pray for physical, spiritual, emotional, and family needs for our church, then as the Word of God instructs us "...that prayer and intercession be made for all men." They pray for our nation, our world and the Body of Christ.
And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. - Acts 2:42
Our Goal is intercession – interceding for others from a place of prayer, praise, worship, fervency and a kind heart.
Our Purpose is to equip, enable, and encourage all church members to pray continually and effectively while making prayer a part of everything we do.
Our Vision is to support our Pastor in his vision for FBC; to equip and keep our church praying faithfully, effectively on an ongoing basis, cultivating a deeper prayer life in their own lives.
In essence, our intercessory prayer ministry is intended to align the hearts of people with the true heart of God.
The Prayer Warriors are active throughout the week at FBC. On Monday-Saturday, they gather from 6:00AM - 7:00AM on the FBC Prayer Line Conference Call each day to pray over our church, our community and our world. On Sunday mornings, they gather to pray over our services and for the needs of our congregation.
To the glory of God, we have seen the tremendous impact of this ministry through countless testimonies and answered prayers. Please join us in this powerful movement at FBC!

"Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” - Matt. 28: 18-20
Our purpose is to pray for the needs of those in our community who come or need prayer. We use this opportunity give out tracks, lead people to Christ and invite them to Church where they can be baptized and discipled.
Our vision is to see each Ministry of our Church engaged in winning souls for Christ.
Our goal is to be actively engaged in the Great Commission, getting out into the community and sharing the Good News and meeting some basis needs of those we encounter, i.e. feeding the hungry, giving water to the thirsty, etc.
Recently, we have been ministering at the Peekskill Train Station & Waterfront, as well as the Cortlandt Town Center. The location where we set up the Prayer Station will change from time to time as we want to go into the different communities in our service area. Please see our calendar for upcoming dates!
