About Together Fellowship
Our fellowship is pretty simple. We purposely fellowship in small groups for reasons expressed throughout this web site. There are many; but the primary reason is that meeting in small fellowship groups is the pattern that we see all through the Bible. Yeshua came preaching the Kingdom of God in love and faith. In the same way, we purpose to glorify God and advance His Kingdom. Groups might meet on various days in various ways. Occasionally we do utilize larger venues as God leads for various purposes.
We hold the Scriptures to be sacred from Genesis to Revelation however we purpose to major on the majors and minor on the minors.
We purpose to be:
Bible based – While all of the Bible is based upon the Torah (First five books), we consider all of the Bible (Gen. – Rev.) to be our anchor in life as well as what propels us. All of the Bible is “God-breathed” inspiration from God to man, as a blessing and guide, for every area of life. We study the Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic languages of the Bible. We also consult other versions of the Bible: But we view the King James Version as our authority.
Spirit-led – While the Bible is the revealed Word of God, the Spirit of God directs us in its application. We view this to be so in every area of life including our gatherings. While the Holy Spirit moves to meet needs, He always does so in an orderly manner that never contradicts the written Word. Miracles are not “miracles” to God; they are “normal” to Him. We expect God to be God in our gatherings as well as in everyday life as the Spirit of God moves among us.
Family Integrated – While many groups split and divide the family, we purpose to support the family unit as a God-ordained institution. We have taken this approach since the beginning and have found it to be very beneficial not only for the children but also for the family of God “at-large”. Obviously sometimes it is prudent to make adjustments but this is our general approach.
Congregation – Unfortunately, here in America, the word “church”, has become synonymous with “building”. But not one time does the Bible ever refer to the “church” as a building: Rather it is always people. Of course, we utilize buildings; homes for Fellowship Groups (the heart of Together Fellowship), and larger buildings for larger gatherings as God leads. But we purpose to remember that it is people that God cares for and loves, and Yeshua gave His life for.
Together – God can do great things under any circumstances but He especially responds when His people unite in one accord with each other and Him.
Fellowship – We see ourselves as just one expression of the family of God; a part of the Body of Messiah as a whole. We choose to live as His people, in “community” as we reach out to the lost and the larger Body of Messiah.
We purpose to:
Be culturally relevant: God has made it very clear that He is most concerned about the condition of our hearts. Above all we consider the Bible to be a book of relationships between God, man, and each other. We also consider the Bible to be the handbook for life.
Help the hurting – The central figure of the Bible, Yeshua (Jesus) placed a great emphasis on genuinely caring for the hurting in spirit, soul, and body; and then He instructed us to do what He did so that is what we purpose to do.
Love the unloved – Yeshua said that the greatest commandment is to love and the writer of most of the “New Testament” said that no matter how “obedient” you are if you don’t love others, your actions are empty. It is our desire that our actions are full of life and all that really matters.
Reach the lost / Calling in Israel to the God of Israel – God is preparing for the epic confrontation between the forces of good and the forces of evil. For these reasons and more He softening and cultivating hearts all around the globe, preparing them to receive the Word of God.
Make Disciples – God desires the found to reach out to the lost and express His glory in His Kingdom. That is the way the Bible tells us to live.
Serve the Community – The Bible teaches that God’s people are to care for all people as we are an expression of love and Himself.
We are a community of singles, couples, families, and groups, networked together. – We are a “geographically challenged” group of like-minded people. While separated by distance, we are united in spirit and in “Fellowship Groups“. We travel and utilize the internet and phone services to communicate regularly.
Seeking a lifestyle of healing & health – Yeshua came so that we would have an abundant life but it doesn’t just automatically happen; he gave us a recipe, a formula, a blueprint to follow and so we purpose to live a lifestyle of healing and health in spirit, soul and body.
