Who We Are

Praise and Glory to The Lord God Almighty and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  It is truly a wonderful thing to be able to worship the Creator.  Being given the privilege by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to Worship God In Spirit and in Truth is awesome! 

How do we neglect such a privilege?  As David said, "Where can I go from your Spirit?  Where can I flee from your presence?  If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.  If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast." (Psalms 139:7-10 NIV).  

Hallelujah and Amen!  That's who we are at Fellowship In The Word.  We believe that their is nothing more precious or important than "our" - (fellow believers) - "relationship" with God by and through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 

 

What We're About

Growing together in Faith and Knowledge with our brothers and sisters in Christ; so that, we may increase and enhance our relationship with God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.  As believers, we are all seeking to grow in our faith and understand the Word, Work and Plan of God for our lives.  Such growth only comes through and by practical wisdom of God's Word.  "Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing comes from the Word of God." (Rom. 10:17). 

However, the hearing referenced in this scripture is not simply or just hearing, it's ἀκούω akouō; which means to give audience, give attention to and consider or ἀκοή akoē; meaning having a sense of the thing heard.  In many instances, people don’t hear because they don’t understand, it’s not plain to them this leaves them without any use of practical application of the Word.

Here at Fellowship In The Word, we want all of us to get the “real” practical application of God’s word for our lives, not just hearing a sermon for hearing a sermon’s sake. No, let’s be real and get real about the truth of God’s word for our lives.

Join Us and let’s fellowship together!

The sole basis of our beliefs is the Bible, God’s infallible written Word, the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments. We believe that it is unequivocally inspired by the Holy Spirit and that it was written without error (that is, it is inerrant) in the original manuscripts. It is the supreme and final authority in all matters on which it speaks.

  1. There is one true God, eternally existing in three persons — Father, Son and Holy Spirit — each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of Deity and the characteristics of personality.
  2. Jesus Christ is God, the living Word, who became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. Hence, He is perfect Deity and true humanity united in one person forever.
  3. He lived a sinless life and voluntarily atoned for human sins by dying on the cross as a substitute, thus satisfying divine justice and accomplishing salvation for all who trust in Him alone.
  4. He rose from the dead in the same body, though glorified, in which He lived and died.
  5. He ascended bodily into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God the Father, where He, the only mediator between God and humanity, continually makes intercession on our behalf.
  6. Adam and Eve were originally created in the image of God. They sinned by disobeying God; thus, they were alienated from their Creator. That historic fall brought all people under divine condemnation.
  7. Human nature is corrupted. As a result, all people are totally unable to please God. Everyone is in need of regeneration and renewal by the Holy Spirit.
  8. Salvation is wholly a work of God’s free grace and not of works, in whole or in part, of human works or goodness or religious ceremony. God imputes His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation and thereby justifies them in His sight.
  9. It is the privilege of all who are born again of the Spirit to be assured of their salvation from the very moment in which they trust Christ as their Savior. This assurance is not based upon any kind of human merit but is produced by the witness of the Holy Spirit, who confirms in the believer the testimony of God in His written word.
  10. The Holy Spirit has come into the world to reveal and glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to individuals. He convicts and draws sinners to Christ, imparts new life to them, continually indwells them from the moment of spiritual birth and seals them until the day of redemption. His fullness, power and control are appropriated in the believer’s life by faith.
  11. Believers are called to live so in the power of the indwelling Spirit that they will not fulfill the lust of the flesh but will bear fruit to the glory of God.
