ABOUT US

WELCOME TO FELLOWSHIP CHURCH

Fellowship* is a community founded by Pastor Grant Edwards and his hippie friends in 1972. Since then God has worked through everyday people in a place like Springfield to change thousands of lives all over the world. We are passionate about helping people KNOW Jesus, GROW in their faith, SHOW the love of Christ to others and GO where Jesus calls us to go.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

The Bible

We affirm the Bible to be the inspired, authoritative Word of God and that it is eternally reliable in all matters of Christian faith and practice.

The Holy Trinity

We affirm that there is one God, infinitely perfect and eternally existent in the persons of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ

We affirm the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory.

Salvation

We affirm that salvation is by grace, through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. We affirm that repentance toward God, faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit are necessary to receive salvation.

Resurrection

We affirm the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those that are saved to the resurrection of eternal life and those that are lost to isolation from the Living God.

Holy Spirit

We affirm the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling enables the Christian to live a godly life. We affirm the fullness of the Holy Spirit as the empowerment of the Christian for witness and service. We affirm that the Holy Spirit provides one or more spiritual gifts to all believers manifesting them as He wills. We affirm that all of the gifts of the Holy Spirit are operative today.

The Church

We affirm the one, universal Church which is the Body of Christ. We affirm Christ as its head. We affirm all who are born-again as its members. We affirm the church’s purpose as offering worship to God, fellowship and instruction to itself, and evangelism and service to the world. We affirm the offices of Ephesians 4 as the church’s divinely established order and government. We affirm the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Baptism

We affirm believer’s baptism by immersion in water in obedience to our Lord Jesus Christ.

Table Of Our Lord

We affirm the Table of our Lord, the Lord’s supper for believers.

Victory Of Christ's Church

We affirm and are confident in the victory of Christ’s Church over the forces of darkness.
