Here at Fellowship, the Gospel - the good news of Jesus - is at the center of everything we do. The Gospel is our heartbeat and our foundation.
We look different from one another. We come from different backgrounds. We don’t all think alike, live alike, or vote alike. We are young, we are middle-aged, and we are old. Look around the Fellowship family and you'll quickly notice that we're quite different from one another. But even though we're different, it's the Gospel that serves as the common thread weaving us together into beloved community.
We are transformed by the Gospel.
The Gospel invites us into relationship with God. This is the Gospel: that God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, Jesus, as an offering of atonement of sins through His death, burial, and resurrection. So that whoever believes in Jesus would not perish, but have everlasting life.
We Grow in a life of worship.
Believing and trusting in Jesus is the beginning and foundation of a lifetime of following Him, becoming more and more like Him. We are each a work in progress and God invites us to Grow in a life of worship to continue to become more and more like Jesus. There is more to the church than sitting in rows on Sunday mornings. We, the church, have been planted to Grow. Not just higher or wider, but deeper in love of God and love of others.
We Gather in community.
God doesn’t want us to go on this journey alone. He created us to Gather in community. We exist to fully express the love of Jesus Christ in and to the community we are planted in. This is what we are called to: more than Sundays and sermons and songs, we're called to the table where community can flourish. We are called to be more than consumers and more than spectators. Our God has called us to be known and cared for in the context of community.
We Give our lives away on mission.
Here’s the best news of all: we have been called to give of ourselves freely, just as our God freely gave of Himself for us. We have been called to a fuller expression of a church family, one that responds to Christ’s call to love our neighbors as ourselves, to love our church, our city, and our world.
