Christian Fellowship:


Christian fellowship takes two primary forms, fellowship with God, and fellowship with Christians.

We have listed a number of scripture references on what Christian fellowship is,

and

"some," that indicate what Christian fellowship "is not".



Fellowship with God in Christ Jesus:


Our Christian fellowship is first and foremost with Christ (not with man or a church),
this is our first appreciation of "real Christian fellowship". 

1st Corinthians Chapter 1 Verse 9: "God [is] faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship
of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord".

1st John Chapter 1 Verse 3 (pt. b): "and truly our fellowship [is] with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ".

Ephesians Chapter 3 Verse 9: "And to make all [men] see what [is] the fellowship of the mystery,
which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ".

and then we have:

Fellowship with other Christians, but only because of our fellowship with God:



Christians Fellowship, because of our Fellowship with God.

Acts: Chapter 2 Verse 42:  "And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship,
and in breaking of bread, and in prayers".

1st John Chapter 1 Verse 7: "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light,
we have fellowship one with another, and the
blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin".

1st John Chapter 1 Verse 3 (pt. a): "That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you,
that ye also may have fellowship with us".



Fellowship with Non - Christians, is Not Fellowship.

2nd Corinthians Chapter 6 Verse 14:  "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers:
for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?
and what communion hath light with darkness"?

Ephesians Chapter 5 Verse 11: "And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness,
but rather reprove [them]".

2nd Corinthians Chapter 6 Verse 14: "Wherefore come out from among them,
and be separate saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing":



Fellowship in a Christian Assembly.

Now here, one must first and foremost, be aware of what the Bible states about Christian Assemblies.

In the original Bible text, the original Greek manuscripts, the word so commonly used today as "Church"
was and is, in the original Greek tongue, "the Ekklesia".

Now "the Ekklesia" means, "the called out ones", or "the gathering of those summoned".
Called-out and separated (re - fellowship) from the un-believers.

New Testament Christians would then own that there is but "one body" which is the Church "the Ekklesia",
and that the various religious sects (denominations with paid workers, and others) are NOT the true Church,
but are attempting to divide and limit the true body of Christ.
(1st Corinthians Chapter 12 Verse 12, and 1st Corinthians Chapter 1 Verse 13).



Fellowship in a Denomination?

Attendance in a denomination (a so called Church) does not make you a Christian,
as folk who attend such places fall into a number of categories,
some may be Christians, but many may not be Christians.

The folk in the congregation may look like this:
* Pew sitter who truly believes and has received The Christ, or received by The Christ,
* Pew sitter who is comfortable in attending, but does not know The Christ,
* Pew sitter who is truly seeking,
and:
* Preacher who knows The Christ,
* Preacher who knows The Christ and actually preaches the true Gospel,,
* Preacher who knows not The Christ and may simply be a paid worker,
and:
* Elder who knows The Christ,
* Elder who knows not The Christ.
And many others.

So please, do not be intimidated if you wish to attend a denomination to take a look,
or to seek true Christian fellowship,
just remember that it is more than likely full of a mix of folk like the above.



New Testament Church Assembly?

How then shall one be able to recognise a church of the New Testament (NT) order?
Is it possible for such to exist today?
Our link Assembly Pattern indicates what is as close as possible to a true NT Christian Assembly.
