The church of believers that meets at Christian Fellowship Church (CFC) today, commenced with a few families that first met together in Bangalore, India, in August 1975. They decided to be disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, first themselves, and then to make disciples, in obedience to the Lord's commission in Matthew 28:18-20.
For a fuller statement of what we believe, click here.
- That the Bible (66 books) is the
inspired and infallible Word of God,
the sole and sufficient guide for our life on earth.
- That there is one God eternally existent in three Persons:
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- In the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His
His perfectly sinless life, His substitutionary death as an atonement
for our sins,
His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Father, and His personal
to the earth for His saints.
- That all human beings are dead in sin and utterly lost and that
the only way
their sins can be forgiven is through repentance and through faith
in the death
and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
- In the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit, whereby a person
is born again
to be a child of God.
- That justification is by faith in Christ alone, the evidence
of this being
good works that glorify God.
- In baptism in water, by immersion, after regeneration, in the
of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
- In the necessity of being filled with the Holy Spirit continually
to have power to be witnesses for Christ - by life and by word.
- In the resurrection of the righteous to eternal life and the
resurrection of the unrighteous to eternal damnation.
A Short History:
The church of believers that meets at Christian
Fellowship Centre (CFC) today commenced with a few families that
first met together in Bangalore, India in August 1975. They decided
to be disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ first themselves, and then
to make disciples in obedience to the Lord's commission in Matthew
28:18-20, emphasizing the new birth, holiness of inner life, mutual
love, moral purity, financial integrity and sharing God's truth
with others - founding every aspect of their lives on God's Word
CFC is not connected organisationally with any
group or church anywhere. We are evangelical in our faith ( See
'what we believe' ) and gladly receive all who
are members of the worldwide Body of Christ.
Our Stand On Money Matters:
No reports of the work done or any appeal for
finances are ever sent out anywhere. All money that is received
as freewill offerings or as voluntary contributions, goes directly
to the work of spreading the gospel in India,
through conferences, literature and audio-tapes etc. ( See
'Financial Support' )
CFC is led by a plurality of elders. No elder
is paid for his work. This is NOT because we feel that such financial
support is unScriptural, but because we desire to stand apart from
the bad testimony that many Christian workers have had in the matter
