Welcome to the Family Bible Baptist Website!
"Ask for the old paths where is the good way, and walk there in..."
Family Bible Baptist is a gospel work that has begun its meetings in New Richmond, Wisconsin, as of June 22, 2014. This work is under the direction of Evangelist Russell Hildebrandt who has been ordained by and sent out from Old Paths Baptist Church of Northfield, MN. FBB is a gospel work that seeks to lay a foundation that is based upon "..the simplicity that is in Christ" (2 Cor. 11:3), to follow the "old paths" as we use God's word, the King James Bible, to teach and preach the whole counsel of God---provoking one another unto "love and to good works" (Heb. 10:24) , and to reach a lost world through Biblical evangelsim yet remaining "unspotted from the world" (James 1:27).
"A house divided against itself shall not stand" (Matt 12:25) : In today's society where the family seems to be segregated on every hand, an FBB church plant will be focused on keeping families together and burdened with a special vision to edify Christian parents to capture the hearts of their children for Christ within the home. The strength of spiritual leadership in the home translates to a strong spiritual constitution within the local church body. We will encourage parents to maintain their leadership in the family when they come together as a family to worship the Lord and to grow in their knowledge of Him--- "The father to the children shall make known thy truth." (Isa. 38:19).
"God setteth the solitary in families..." (Ps 68:6) : In a world that is devastated by sin, we understand that there are many who, though often not by choice, have been left alone to fend for themselves. The family of believers that God has ordained within a local church assembly is HIS gift and design for these that are alone, for whatever reason, to be the "family" that they are needing.
As the Lord blesses and leads in this gospel work, Family Bible Baptist would be planted as an independent, unincorporated (non-501C3), and historic Baptist Church. It is our prayer that this kind of simple, old-fashioned body of believers would make a positive, life-changing, and eternal difference upon our community for the cause of Christ and for His glory alone.

"The words of the Lord are pure words...Thou shalt keep them,
O Lord, Thou shalt preserve them from this generation forever."
"Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is;
but exhorting one another and so much the more, as you see the day approaching."
