The birth of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International is in essence the story of a tremendous move of God beginning in the last decade of the twentieth century. Since 1994, when over twenty-five thousand people attended the first Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship Conference in the Louisiana Superdome, the spiritual religious freedom that makes Full Gospel Baptist unique has impacted Christian men and women across the world.

Captured by the phrase "The Right to Choose", that freedom is based on the belief that the Gospel of Jesus Christ must be promoted by recognizing the free expression of the gifts of the Spirit as a viable part of the Body of Christ. The Fellowship is convinced that the choice to exercise these spiritual gifts is imperative for the local New Testament Church to fully function as the dynamic organism God has intended.

The FGBCF is not a denomination or religious sect. The Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship is distinctly a Fellowship as defined herein: A Fellowship, which embraces all ministries, churches, individuals, or other constituents that acknowledge and accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. The Fellowship is inclusive to all baptized believers who acknowledge and accept the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The Fellowship is in communion with all who agree and are willing to abide by the set forth structure outlined both in the vision of the Fellowship, and the policies implemented thereof. We believe in the autonomy of the Baptist Church and respect it as such. Those who are members of the Fellowship do not have to change the name of the church where they worship, but it is believed and expected that the church should claim and/or announce its affiliation or membership in the Fellowship somewhere in its description.
