When you visit OBFBC you will experience contemporary worship (particularly the Gospel style of artists like the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, Ron Kenoly, and Alvin Slaughter). Still, we know that music alone, whatever the style, is not worship. It is a vehicle or tool. Clapping, raising of hands, or whatever outward manifestation, is only a means of worshiping.
What happens within the walls of a building is reflective of what is happening throughout the week in the lives of each member. And, what happens corporately fuels the individual’s everyday life.
With that in mind, a typical O.B.F. worship service will include:
Ascribing to God the glory due His name
(Psalm 29:1-2 ; 1 Chronicles 16:29 )
Responding to truth from preaching, teaching, and reading of the Word
(Ps. 86:11; John 4:23-24 )
Giving of our material resources
(2 Corinthians 9:6-7 ; 1 Timothy 6:18 )
(Hebrews 13:15-16 )
Offering spiritual sacrifices
(1 Peter 2:4-5 )
Doing good and sharing with others
(Hebrews 13:15-16 )
Singing and music
(Colossians 3:16 ; Psalm 150 )
What truly matters is not what we get out of the worship service But what we give to God. Being blessed is a by-product, not the motivation for worship.es.
Relationship with others is of extreme importance, standing next to our relationship with God Himself. Relationship with fellow believers takes priority and goes deeper than what we are to have with those who do not know the Lord.
(Matthew 22:37-39 ; Galatians 6:10 )
OBFBC hosts many events geared towards building strong Christian relationships within the church. We pride ourselves on being a family rich in relationships that matter most. We believe that the body of Christ is built up of a diverse group of people who are called by Christ to fellowship together in Christian love, to encourage each other and to build each other up. Some of our events include, an annual Couples Banquet, Christmas Party, Picnic in the Park, Children’s Carnival, Super-bowl party, Men’s and Women’s Fellowship events and more. We invite everyone to attend our next event in hopes that you will find a place to belong at Orlando Bible Fellowship.

Missions is the heartbeat of Orlando Bible Fellowship. We believe that God has given each of us the responsibility to spread the gospel, throughout the communities in which we live, and around the world. Our primary task is to fulfill the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ, to both “make disciple” and to “teach those disciples,” according to Matthew 28:19-20
, which says, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
The Purpose of the Mission Ministry
- To proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to those that are lost
- To help and equip the missionaries and pastors in their ministries abroad
- To allow our relationship with God to grow and cause us to live each day with passion for the Lord
- To develop a servant’s heart world view within church so that everyday is viewed as a mission from the Lord
n. to turn all people into mature followers of Christ
Christian discipleship is more than being a believer – it’s about being a follower! Once we make a decision for Christ, then just like Andrew, John and Peter, we must become His disciples and follow Him. Have you chosen to follow Christ? If so, then you are a modern-day Christian disciple! “But I can’t learn personally from Jesus like they did!” you might say. Oh, but you can!
Thanks to the faithfulness of those apostles, who clearly understood their role as messengers of Christ, we have their gospels and letters to go by. Later, when Paul was added to their number (by virtue of his Road to Damascus encounter with the risen Christ), he wrote letters to all the churches he helped create. These books and letters became the New Testament of God’s Word, and unlike those first disciples, we have all of Christ’s instructions at our fingertips!
Christian Discipleship – The Short Course in a Long Journey Christian discipleship begins when you make an active choice to get to know Jesus better. By God’s grace, it is then accomplished in several ways:
- You can study His Word daily and spend time alone with Him in prayer.
- You can become a member of a Bible-teaching church fellowship.
- You can seek out the companionship of other Christians who are growing with Christ.
- You can participate in ministry and meet the needs of other believers.
- You can share what you’re learning about Christ with others, just like Andrew, James, John, Luke, Matthew, Peter, Paul and all the original disciples did.
Like those first twelve, you too can be a believer who becomes a follower and messenger!
