A Call to Fellowship

In this fellowship, we share a sense of warmth and we are interested in both the present and the hereafter. Here the stranger finds a place where people are “members of one another.”  We enjoy growth.  There is no other family like it.  This is a fellowship not only extended to our close friends, but we invite all who want to belong. 

This family stresses and believes the Holy Scriptures are the inspired word of God.  We believe they are a revelation of God, the Father, Jesus Christ (the Messiah, promised to the Jewish people, chosen of God to bring Salvation to the whole world), His Son, and the Holy Spirit, the Divine Guest, in the heart of every obedient believer. 

Along with this vertical fellowship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we stress the importance of a horizontal fellowship with all obedient believers, and an intense desire to share it with every creature under heaven.   We stress the intimacies of shared sufferings as well as shared joy.  We are more than teammates and more than fellow-workers.  We are a brotherhood (1 Peter 2:17) and Christ is our older brother (Hebrews 2:11ff). 

We are joint heirs with Him in Eternal life.  We stress the qualities that build up the fellowship which include:  love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control (Galatians 5:13-24).
