Although from various backgrounds, we are united at Fellowship Church through our common-unity, Jesus Christ. There are a myriad of differences throughout Christian associations and denominations, yet despite these differences we still believe in a spiritual unity between all who know and walk with Christ.
At the same time, as a local church we practice our faith in a particular way, and hold to distinctives as a church that may differ from other local churches. We strive to embrace our unity, leave room for biblically disputable matters, and love one another with the love of Christ.
We practice Believer’s Baptism at Fellowship. Specifically, this is baptism by immersion after conversion. Baptism is an outward symbol of what Christ has already done on the inside. We encourage all believers who have trusted the Lord Jesus Christ as their means of forgiveness and salvation to follow their Lord in this obedient step of baptism. Our baptisms take place in our worship service in order for the baptism to be a clear declaration to all of following Christ.
Anyone interested in baptism should schedule an appointment with one of the pastors.
We typically observe communion the first Sunday of each month during our worship service.
We believe this ordinance to be a remembrance and memorial to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is a corporate declaration that we as the corporate church have a common unity: Jesus Christ. We celebrate and remember the broken body of our Lord and His sin cleansing blood as the only means of forgiveness of sins and salvation.
All who have trusted Christ are invited to participate.
We believe that children are blessings from the Lord and we enjoy the privilege of dedicating our children back to God. Children come from the Lord and so we willingly dedicate them back to Lord publicly in our worship service while praying personally for each child being dedicated.
Anyone interested in finding out more about child dedications should make an appointment with one of the pastors.
Our Vision for Making Disciples
Rather than a view that only an elite group of people are to serve as “ministers” in the Body of Christ, it is our view that each and every believer is called by God to be an active disciple of Christ.
The biblical model for discipleship is one in which every aspect of life is under the direction and blessing of God. Each person who commits to follow Christ is called to be an integral part of the community of believers, in which every person is devoted to worshipping, growing, and serving.
