About Us

Nurture

Growing together as the church in fellowship and unity.

Serve

Ministering to the local community and reaching the ends of the earth.

Thrive

Living in the fullness of Christ and the Spirit.

Our church motto is "Nurture, Serve, Thrive." These three themes communicate what we as a church are seeking to accomplish in our worship and work.

Nurture

We seek to nurture the faith that the Lord gives every person  in our midst, both inside and outside of our church membership, by growing together in fellowship and unity.

Serve

We seek to serve all people in both physical and spiritual ways, by ministering to the local community and reaching the ends of the earth in Christ’s love.

Thrive

We seek to live in the fullness of Christ-likeness and the power of the Holy Spirit, by continuing  to grow in faith, hope, and love as a vibrant and healthy congregation.

We desire to exalt Jesus Christ as the Son of God and the Savior of all who believe in Him. Recognizing and feeling this relationship we are committed to the following objectives:

Worship

To exalt the presence of God through worship thus experiencing an awareness of God, recognizing His person, and responding in obedience to His leadership resulting in a deepening of faith, and strengthening of service.

Witness

To be a spiritual body empowered by the Holy Spirit to share Christ with as many people as possible in our church, community, and throughout the world.

Minister

To be a church which expresses the love of Christ by ministering unselfishly to persons in the community and the world in Jesus’ name.

Educate

To guide persons to experience an increasingly meaningful fellowship with God, corporately with fellow believers, and personally toward a mature Christian faith and life.

Apply

To be Christ-like in our daily living by applying Christian principles and emphasizing total commitment of life, personality, and possessions to the Lordship of Christ.

Heather McClintock

Children's Minister

Heather McClintock joined the FBC Riesel staff in 2014 to serve as Children’s Director. She is a wife, a mother of 2, and a full time Registered Nurse. Heather has spent many years working in various ministries within the churches her family has attended. It was while they lived in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, in 2005 that she first felt a calling for children’s ministry. She has been an active participant in children’s ministry since. When her family relocated to Riesel from Northwest Arkansas in 2010, that service continued. Heather’s passion is to teach, train, and empower kids to live out their faith. Her goal is to instill in every child the necessity and privilege of active prayer, active study, and active worship. She does this through age appropriate lessons, plays/skits, camps, and more.
