We believe Jesus Christ gave the church its purpose in Matthew 28:19-20, ‘go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.’
The purpose of True Fellowship Church is to lead people to a life of faith in and full devotion to Jesus Christ. Full devotion is a journey that believers should travel for the rest of their lives. It is establishing right relationships in our lives focusing on these key areas:
Spiritual Growth – We commit to developing Godly character by striving to exhibit the fruit of the Spirit daily.
Gal 5:22-23 & II Tim 2:15
Spiritual Relationships - We commit to building true community by experiencing spiritual transformation that only happens in the context of relationships with other believers.
Spiritual Service - We commit to developing the spiritual gifts that God has given to all believers enabling us to lovingly serve one another.
Eph 6:7, 2:8-10
Spiritual Stewardship – We recognize all that we have is granted to us by God to do His will in the building of His Kingdom.
I Cor 4:2, II Cor 9:6-15
Spiritual Influence - We believe in sharing all that we are and have received from God, with the least, the less and the loss.
We purpose to be in a high pursuit in the sharing of the Good News of Jesus Christ with all persons in our Jerusalem (Madison, IL), Judea (Illinois & Missouri), Samaria (United States) and the uttermost (other nations).
To actively purpose and engage in the ministries of both the ‘Great Commandment’ and the ‘Great Commission.’ We believe that a great conviction to fulfill both will make a ‘Great Church’!
The Great Commandment: Matt 22:37-40 (Amp)
The Great Commission: Matt 28:19-20 (Amp)
To love God with all your heart is WORSHIP.
To love your neighbor as yourself is MINISTRY.
To go…make disciples is EVANGELISM.
To baptize…is incorporate into FELLOWSHIP.
To teach them…all things is DISCIPLESHIP.
