Welcome to the website of Fair Lawn Bible Church in Fair Lawn, NJ. We hope that you`ll be able to get a feel for who we are and, if you are near us, that you might come by and worship with us on Sunday.
Fair Lawn is our home. It has been since the church`s beginning in a home Bible study in 1930. It has always been a small church. That`s OK, because a small church can illustrate some of the most important things about God. First it is a place “where everybody knows your name.” And God himself also knows us, personally, completely, good and bad. Second, you can know God personally. Despite knowing all about each one, God has invited all people to know him personally, through putting one`s trust and belief into the Savior, Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Knowing God is something we try to emphasize in all our teaching of the Bible. Bible is the center of our name because the Bible, God`s word, is the center of our belief, and of all that we do. We believe the Bible is relevant to our time because it did not come from a merely human cultural origin, but from God. So its concepts of truth, and right are not dated or passe, but timeless and for all people. The Bible enables us to know God because it shows us how to find eternal life and to be accepted by God. And we`ve found that the Bible has a limitless supply of wisdom, strength, encouragement, and comfort which connects to every experience and decision in life.
Church is our “last name.” It is a word that means “called out.” Years ago, church bells would sound to “call out” people to worship on Sunday mornings. But it is really God who calls all believers in Jesus to come and worship, to build each other`s faith, to encourage and love one another, and, as spiritual brothers and sisters, to share their common life in the Savior, Jesus Christ.
