As members of the church, we are part of the same family.
We are part and parcel of one of God’s great families.
We all share in the same Lord, Jesus Christ.
We can share in His love and comfort.
Our fellowship is in Christ, and we are called to love one another.
Our mission is to lead each other in the way of the Gospel and to share the Gospel.
But what does it really mean to belong to a fellowship?
And is it a good idea?
How to join a fellowship of faithThe fellowship of Christ was a spiritual, not material, family.
The Apostle Paul describes the spiritual community of the Christian church as being in the unity of the Spirit, the unity and fellowship of the Church, the communion of the people of God.
This spiritual and material family is the Christian Church, as the apostle Paul calls it.
In the Bible, the word “church” is translated “fellow.”
That’s the word we use to refer to the fellowship of God in Christ.
The church is not merely a place where people gather to meet and worship; it is a place of worship and fellowship, in which God’s people come together to worship, serve one another and live a life of peace and love.
We often speak of the fellowship as being part of a family, but that’s a little misleading.
The Christian community is not just a family; it’s a family of believers.
And when we say “family,” we don’t just mean a family consisting of a father, mother, children, siblings and aunts and uncles.
The family of faith is a community of believers in Christ that includes all of the families that were created in God’s image.
We believe in the Bible and in Jesus Christ, so when we use the word family, we mean the Christian community of Christians.
What does that mean?
The first thing to understand about a fellowship is that it is not a family unit.
The fellowship of believers is not one of married couples.
It is a group of people who have come together in Christ and who are united in Christ to share in one another’s love, comfort and fellowship.
When we come together as a group in worship, we do not just have our own personal beliefs; we have a shared experience of the love and joy that God has for us and His children.
This love is what makes our fellowship unique.
We have an intimate experience of God and of each other.
In other words, our fellowship is not simply a relationship with people.
It’s not just about having our own opinion about matters of faith.
The Bible tells us that we are to live in fellowship with the whole of God, and that includes Jesus Christ himself.
When God’s love for us is felt and experienced in our fellowship, then we are not only doing what we love to do, we’re doing it for Jesus.
And Jesus Himself says that love of God is the highest good.
So we have to know that love is always present in our relationship with God.
It has to be present in the worship, the fellowship, and in our personal lives.
What does the word fellowship mean in a nutshell?
It means to be united in the love of Christ.
To be part of that love.
This is why the church is called the fellowship.
The Church is not only a family but also a community.
When the church has its own unique, unique, shared experience with God, then it is the fellowship in Christ’s image that is most intimate and spiritually meaningful.
The word fellowship, however, can also refer to many things: family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, family members, colleagues, or even other believers.
When a fellowship comes together to meet together in worship and service, we might say it is called a family.
But when a fellowship ends, the community is called by the same name.
When one of us is gone, another will come along and take the place.
We call this new family the church.
When our community is broken up, our love for one another becomes strained.
That’s why when we come to fellowship in a different way, we often say it’s called a homecoming.
What is the difference between a homewarming and a fellowship party?
The Bible says a homebreaking is a gathering of Christians together in fellowship.
In a home warming, people are invited to come together for fellowship in the name of Jesus Christ and to pray for each other, sing songs, and worship in the presence of Jesus.
But a fellowship doesn’t have to be an evening event.
When people have come to believe in one or more of the following truths, they may invite others to join them.
They may pray together in private.
They might hold a home-cooked meal or a meal in the home.
They could sing songs in their own homes or in church.
They can attend a Bible study together or at a church.
This kind of fellowship is called an assembly.
And, of course, the Bible has many more ways to call
