FLAT BRANCH IS A PLACE WHERE YOU WILL BE LOVED AND CAN GROW IN CHRIST!
Flat Branch is an active church that was established in 1873, and is experiencing new growth today. We represent the Presybterian branch of the Protestant tradition, which emphasizes the authority of the Bible in all matters of faith and practice, God's sovereign love and control of our lives, and leadership in the congregation is performed by elected presbyters, or elders. Salvation comes to us through faith in Jesus Christ alone. Our original frame church was built in the late 1870's, and was replaced by the current sanctuary in 1965. The Felllowship Hall was added in the 1970's.
Flat Branch worships God in a traditional but laid-back style with some blended contemporary elements. Our members and friends cover all ages from babies up to over 90 years old. Most dress casually for worship, but a few like to dress more formally, especially in winter. We welcome all people and emphasize the unchanging nature of God's love in Jesus Christ.
Our church joyfully embraces traditional Christians values, stressing the sanctity of marriage and life as Christians have practiced it for 2,000 years, historic moral standards, and God's call for all of us to turn from our broken ways to follow the light and love of Jesus Christ.
In April of 2016, Flat Branch was officially dismissed to the new ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians from the Presbyterian Church (USA). At that time we changed our name from "Flat Branch Presbyterian" to "Flat Branch Covenent Presbyterian" to denote this historic change. ECO is the new and rapidly growing Presbyterian denomination that emphasizes biblical faithfulness and mission engagement, and moves away from the revisionist and progressive direction of the PC(USA) that has been in a steep decline for decades. This move has brought new joy to our congregation, as well as many new members, who are glad to be part of a biblically faithful church and denomination. For more information about the wonderful mission of ECO, check out their national website at www.Eco-Pres.org.
We are a simple local community church full of great people. We don't take ourselves too seriously, and love to have fun together, but we do take God's Word seriously. We are always learning new ways to grow and new ways to express our faith. We always strive to do great things for God as individuals and as a community. We are gracious with one another and support whoever is down and in need, especially if there is a family crisis or trauma. If you need a place where you will be accepted as you are, but challenged to be all Jesus wants you to be, then you are at the right place at Flat Branch.
Our doors and our hearts are open to you and those whom you hold dear. All we ask as that you seek to know Jesus and the abundant life He gives to all who follow Him in faith. We will be glad to help you connect with Jesus as your Savior if you aren't yet sure what Christian faith is all about. We love seekers, doubters, and broken folks who want something better in life! We've all been there at some point in our lives. We likewise ask for you to love us as we love you. Join us for worship. Join us for study. Join us for fellowship and service. Join us for life! Jesus Loves You And So Do We!
Job 1:19 (ESV)
and behold, a great wind came across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young people, and they are dead, and I alone have escaped to tell you."
