FVBC is of Southern Baptist persuasion and a congregationally-led church, strongly valuing our historical tradition. We elect a Board of Deacons, committees, and ministry teams to prayerfully under take the work of our church. The pastor is an ex-officio member of every group, providing watchful care and guidance as necessary. We practice the ordinances of Baptism and The Lord’s Supper. Membership is based upon a salvation experience, followed by water baptism, a symbol of that experience.
Fuquay-Varina is located fourteen miles south of Raleigh, with a population of approximately 20,000. Downtown sections are delightfully quaint, sprinkled with churches, and tree-lined neighborhoods. There are many new housing developments, businesses, and restaurants on the outskirts. We have traditional and year-round schools, parks, recreational facilities, as well as a local library and a museum.
