The first mention of Deacons in Scripture is from the sixth chapter of the book of Acts. The creation of this ministry was necessary due to the increasing demand of needs coming from the early church. By design, deacons are to serve in a manner that aids the Elders, or “Pastors”, in a way that frees them to care for the flock more diligently. Deacons are not an administrative wing of the congregation, rather they are called to serve, care for, and engage with the local body.

It is our goal at Fruitland Baptist Church to further the Kingdom at all levels and serve you and your family. We look forward to seeing you!
