Reconnecting Culture to Christ | Matthew 28:19-20
Rhythms of Fellowship
Love God, Serve Others, Share Your Story | Acts 2:42-47
To love God is to know God. It’s quite difficult to love a person without first getting to know a person. At Fellowship Church, we believe we come to love God based on our understanding of Him; via corporate worship, the study of scripture, and prayer. When we worship God, we express our love and devotion towards Him through our personal relationship with His Son; Jesus the Christ.
At Fellowship Church, we take great joy in partnering with God to change the world, embracing the truth that all of LIFE is sacred, HOPE is real, and TOMORROW can be better than TODAY. We are passionate about relieving suffering and injustice, by joining forces with the God of the oppressed and castaway; living out a transformational message of a resurrected Christ for all the world to see. As we serve our community we have great confidence in the fact that God will restore, revive and rescue a lost existence back unto Himself.
Sharing is a fundamental principle of Fellowship Church. We value the image of God in all of humanity; regardless of their place in society. We believe that we were created to not only live in harmony with our fellow man, but to also “do life” with them; helping bear one another’s burdens, sharing our possessions, confessing our shortcomings, and praying for one another. We believe all of life is spiritual and all of our fears, failures and brokenness can be mended and made whole. We believe that as we “do life”; sharing ourselves one with another in our intentional “fellow-ships” (small groups/ missional communities) we become a fully functional body of believers in motive and motivation able to suffer and celebrate together.
SHARE YOUR STORY
When we look at the word of God, we see it as a collection of stories about peoples experience with God. Telling your story helps you make sense of your life; it helps answer why certain things happened the way they did. Your story helps you understand what has happened to and how God helped you get through; it helps you make sense of who you were created to be. Telling your story can be incredibly therapeutic, and the practice often leads to greater confidence and understanding of self, the tragedy is that most people don’t take the time to tell their story. Don’t take your story for granted; steward it. Take the time to learn your story. We need it. We need you to tell it. If we’re going to be changed, challenged, motivated and inspired, we need you to SHARE YOUR STORY!!!
