Our Mission

Joining God's mission to disciple all peoples for the sake of His name.

This mission statement communicates three principles:

  • God's Mission in the World - God's mission is presented throughout the Bible. The story of the Bible is the story of God's plan to gather the worship of all the nations that He has created. We join God in His mission by discipling all peoples. Psalm 86:9 All the nations - and you made each one - will come and bow before you, Lord; they will praise your great and holy name.
  • The Purpose of God's Mission - To bring glory to His Name. God's passion is for His name and His glory - that is the supreme reason for His actions in the world. God's passion for His Name is to be the central motivation for us to disciple all peoples. God is not receiving the worship that is due His Name. Therefore, it is our mission to call worshipers from among the nations and disciple them for His glory. Isaiah 48:9-11 For my own name's sake I delay my wrath; for the sake of my praise I hold it back from you, so as not to cut you off. See, I have refined you, though not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction. For my own sake, for my own sake, I do this. How can I let myself be defamed? I will not yield my glory to another.
  • Giving Our Lives to God's Mission - Our responsibility is to not just be a part of God's mission but to give our lives to it. This is what we mean when we say we are "Joining God's mission". Christ's command to His followers to make disciples is just that - a command. It's non-negotiable. Christ died on the cross, rose again and left us with marching orders to take the Gospel to every ethne - every people group - and make disciples. It is our privilege to follow in the footsteps of those who have given their lives to Christ's mission - from Jesus' disciples in the first century all the way to today. Matthew 28:19 (NLT) Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations...
One day, God's mission - and thus ours - will be complete. One day, representatives from every people and nation will be gathered around Christ's throne worshiping and praising His great Name forever...

Revelation 5:9-10,13 And they sang a new song: 'You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth.' Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing: 'To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!

What is the Good News?

How it all started...

In August 1995, Fellowship began meeting in the Norwalk High School gymnasium.  As we expanded, in numbers and ministries, the need for a home of our own became more and more apparent.

In 1999, the people of Fellowship purchased 10 acres on the southwest side of Norwalk. Over time, we made improvements to the property such as grading, landscaping and adding a parking lot - anticipating first day of construction. That day arrived in the spring of 2003 and was completed in January 2004!

The result is a facility that can be a place for spiritual worship of God, for teaching our children the story of God's grace, for community service & events, and for growing friendships and support in Christ's love for years to come!
