Interdenominational: We come from different theological traditions but desire to show visible unity in the areas of essential Christian doctrine.
Bible Based: We believe the Word of God in its original autographs to be inerrant, authoritative, and infallible. Evangelical: We believe it to be our calling to share the gospel with all who will listen.
Pro-Life: We believe that human life from conception on is valuable and to be protected.
Theologically Conservative: We hold to the historic evangelical faith; not modern speculation or revisionism.
Morally Conservative: God’s plan is still single abstinence and marital monogamous heterosexuality.
Open To The Holy Spirit’s Work: We believe that every believer receives the Holy Spirit at conversion and is commanded daily to seek the Spirit’s fullness and filling. Terminology differs (filling, baptism, anointing) but the substance is the same, to seek to be empowered and led by the Spirit. We do not get more of the Spirit; we grow in submission to His guidance, direction, and empowerment. We are open to spiritual gifts and believe that God continues to give gifts as He pleases. We may demand no one gift of any person, but we may expect to see the fruit of the Spirit in all. Ironically, the Holy Spirit, who should unify, is often the focus of what divides Christians. We actively seek to reflect unity by not letting either our liberty or experience be the source of division in the Body of Christ. Extraordinary or sign gifts – tongues, healing, prophecy, miracles – when guided by humility and love should build up, not divide. In any event, we believe that there is no continuing new revelation on par with scripture. Any promptings or subjective experience must be in line with scripture and subject to assessment by our elders.
We acknowledge unity in essentials but diversity in matters non-essential to salvation.
Membership in Christ’s Fellowship is a commitment to hold tightly to the essentials and bear with the diversity that exists in the non-essentials. Think carefully about this before joining.
