That which we hold to be true, according to the Scriptures. God has provided an infinite resource in His Word. From what we are learning, this is what we believe.
What We Believe
Here at Fellowship, we are passionate about developing spiritually and relationally healthy disciples of Jesus. A relationship with Jesus begins with understanding the central message of the Bible: Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, and no one comes to the Father but by him (John 14:6). Our church exists to proclaim that simple but life-changing message in our community and across the globe.
We believe that the gospel is the centerpiece of faith and life. The gospel is the good news about what God has done through Jesus. God has not only created the world, but since all humanity has fallen out of right relationship with Him, He has brought salvation to us through the death and resurrection of Jesus, His Son, and He will one day make all things right for all time. The Bible considers this message about what Jesus has done as the foundation for Christian faith (see 1 Corinthians 15:1-5), and so do we.
