About Port Charlotte FGBMFI
Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship International is an organization of Christians that believe what is written in Hebrews 11:8: “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” (NIV)
FGBMFI was founded over fifty years ago in California by a dairy farmer who had a vision of reaching men for Jesus. Our membership is made up of believers from all church backgrounds, who organize meetings in hotels and restaurants where they share experiences of how God has changed their lives.
Our goal is to testify to the power of the living God in our world today through thousands of chapters in about 150 countries of the world who meet regularly. FGBMFI seeks to bring all Christians together under the single banner of their experiences in Christ, and to strengthen them so they can go back to their respective churches refreshed, renewed, and ready to be actively involved.
We believe that all gifts of the spirit are in operation today and manifest in born again, spirit filled believers as Holy Spirit desires.
Here in Florida, there are dozens of chapters that meet regularly in a restaurant setting. This chapter meets the second Saturday of each month and welcomes men and women of all faiths.
Our Mission is:
· To reach others in this part of Florida for Jesus Christ
· To call those who have gone astray back to God
· To encourage believers be baptized in the Holy Spirit and to grow spiritually
· To train and equip believers to fulfill the Great Commission
· To provide an opportunity for Christian fellowship
· To bring a greater unity among all people in the body of Christ
It is important to understand that FGBMFI is not a church. It aims to support ministers, priests, pastors, and their churches. The offices are held by laymen, but Clergy, if led by the Holy Spirit to do so, are very welcome to become members of the Fellowship. It can be an opportunity for them to sit back and enjoy the ministry of others so that everyone can be encouraged in their Christian faith.
