Our distinctives

Depending on each individual's spiritual background and previous church experience, we tend to develop expectations and ideas about what church is supposed to be like. At FBC Carthage, we aim to be Biblical in everything we do, allowing the scriptures to determine our practices instead of popular trends or cultural preferences. Listed below are some of our "distinctives" that will help you understand who we are. 

Gospel-centered

Elder-led congregationalism

Congregational singing

Parent-centered Youth & Kids Ministry
