What Kind of Church Is This?
Christ’s Fellowship is a non-denominational church that shares a heritage and affiliation with churches of the Restoration Movement which encouraged believers to lay down denominational differences for the sake of unity in the body of Christ. Some of the appeals to unity that are part of this movement include the following:
“We are not the only Christians, but we are Christians only.”
“Where the Bible speaks, we speak. Where the Bible is silent, we are silent.”
“In essentials, unity. In nonessentials, liberty. But in all things, love.”
There are three important conceptual threads that run through these statements and upon which our fellowship stands:
A Commitment to the Authority of the Bible
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and we regard it as the only authority for personal decisions and church practice.
Freedom in Christ
Because the Bible does not speak specifically to some issues of our culture today, we strive not to turn matters of opinion into dividing walls between believers.
Love for One Another
Because the family of God is greater than any one church or denomination, we extend the love of Christ to all who call Jesus their Lord
in order to fulfill His words from John 13:35, “By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
