What the Home Fellowship Network Believes


1. Consider Jesus Christ to be the head of the church (fellowship), the worship, the resource of all the needs of the body.

2. View Jesus Christ's goal for the church to be sanctifying it's members, conforming them to his image, preparing them for mutual ministries to each other and outreach to the lost world.

3. Gather informally, usually in a home, with the common bond of Jesus Christ as the result of spirtual birth in Him.

4. Believe in the priesthood of the believer for the work of the ministry and therefore don't have a so called "professional" pastor.

5. Consist of people from varying denominations who want intimate not superficial relationships with one another.

6. Enjoy prayer, praise, worship, bible teaching, communion and testimonies of the lord's works as a common practice.

7. Encourage teaching and learning times that are open to questions and discussions.

8. Include children as a part of the gathering and ministry time.

9. Consist of casual settings which often include eating together.

10. Enjoy all the "one anothers" listed in the scriptures.

11. Operate as an organism rather than a organization or institution. (1 Corinthians 12 and Ephesians 4).

12. Lead through leaders who have a functional mindset rather than a positional mindset, to facilitate rather than control.

13. Make church decisions through consensus (Acts 15:22,25) and all look to Jesus, the head, allowing the Holy Spirit the opportunity to bring the whole church fellowship into one mind.
