Community Fellowship's Mission 

is to serve Jesus Christ and carry out the Great Commission.  We will labor to prepare people physically, mentally, socially and spiritually for the soon return of Christ.  We will exemplify the ministry of Christ in the manner which we treat each other, serve the needs of our community, and invite people to become disciples.

Share His Love

MY GOD LOVES WITHOUT RESTRAINT...

At the heart of each pursuit is the sense that human life, no matter how frail or fleeting, is of great value and this value is appreciated when one life becomes truly aware of another.  Every heart wants to be cherished, every mind understood and every voice heard.

In the pages of Holy Scripture we hear God saying, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you” and “I have loved you with an everlasting love” and we realize that we are known more completely and loved more deeply by our Creator than in any human experience.

It is divine love.

Although not every gesture of love demands a response, our Creator loves us and then invites us to respond.

What response does God want to divine love?

God wants to enter into a deep intimate relationship with each one of us. He is waiting for us to say "yes" to His love.  Moreover, God wants to live out His love in us. Ultimately God wants our lives to reflect His heart of love.

At Community Fellowship we strive to live out the love of Christ both inside and outside our church.  At Community Fellowship you wil find a warm caring family environment.  Sharing His love the primary thing we want our worship, our sevice, and daily lives to be all about.


 

Serve in His Stead

MY WORLD IS A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE FIND HOPE..

Jesus when explaining the difference between the way leadership and authority works in this world and the way it works in Him Kingdom said to His disciples, "Whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant.  And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all.  For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many. (Mark 10:43 - 45)

As Christians we are part of Christ's Kingdom and are called to serve.

When describing a pivotal moment in the life of Jesus with his disciples the bible says that Jesus “showed them the full extent of his love” (John 13:1 NIV).  How did Jesus show the disciples just how far his love would go? By taking off his outer garment, wrapping a towel around his waist and going from disciple to disciple—washing their feet.

The ultimate demonstration of love is to serve.

Setting aside our own agendas, in service we live out our commitment to the well being of others, often to our own discomfort.

Life often deals a painful blow to our fellow citizens of this world. It may leave a community without clean water, a child without access to education or it may convince a mother who struggles to provide for her children that there are no good options.

Every day the Spirit of God motivates people to act in selflessness and self sacrifice to change the world that others face from a place of hopelessness to one of hope.

At Community Fellowship believe that the admonition to love God with all of your mind, heart and soul naturally leads to the commitment to loving your neighbor through acts of kindness and service.

You are invited to discover some of the ways we try to change the world. More than that you are invited to join us and discover how God wants to change the world through you.
  

 

Spread His Good News

 

MY LIFE IS A GIFT TO BE VALUED

When the Creator breathed the breath of life into the nostrils of Earth’s first parents, the act of giving human life was the culmination of a larger scope of work. An environment was first created that would stimulate all of the human senses. Each day we encounter sights, sounds, tastes and smells, we discover that repeated encounters don’t exhaust their wonder.

Human minds from the greatest to the most simple are constantly stretched in the attempt to understand our universe. Creation provided an abundance of food. Our nutritional needs were not merely supplied, but eating would form the context for joy and fellowship.

Relationships of love and mutual respect have always been a part of our Creators plan for us as well. In the harmonious balance between a healthy mind, a strong body and meaningful relationships that result in a joyful spirit, Seventh-day Adventists see vitality at its best.

Of course we live in a world that has broken away from fully reflecting the Creator's original design. The gap between where we were meant to be and where we find our world and ourselves is what we call sin.

The good news is that the same power that created our world created a solution to the problem of sin: Jesus. He is the one who said, “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly” (John 10:10). 

Seventh-day Adventists believe that while we live in a broken world we can still have lives that reflect vitality.

You are invited to learn more about what we understand to be the purpose of a healthy body, an enlightened mind and a joyful spirit that is reflected in healthy relationships.
