Note: Christian Family Fellowship may have a building in Tipp City, Ohio, but our constituents and family extends around the globe. This is part of a series looking at how believers “do church” in their own neighborhoods.
Our home church has many facets to it. We are people who also attend local churches and are involved in other church community affairs. We have even invited people from the church we attend on Sundays to our Saturday evening fellowships that we conduct twice a month.
At our fellowships, we will do a variety of things such as worship with videos, communion, prayer, healings, teachings, sharings from others in our fellowship, and many times eat dinner together. We purposely hold our fellowships on Saturday evenings to enable the people to also attend a local church of their choice.
It’s One Body
This allows them to take advantage of other activities in another church. Some offer classes, outreach programs and out-of-town guest speakers. We are all a part of the body of Christ, therefore we believe it is important to have an interest in what our city is doing as a whole.
We have also found that keeping our network open to other churches, ministries and fellowships in other cities allows us to minister to people who feel their individual needs may not being met in their current church. If they want to stay in their church, wonderful! We’ll help them get healed and delivered anyway.
Healing is Available…to EVERYONE!
We are personally involved in the International Association of Healing Rooms (based on the ministry of John G. Lake) where we are able to go and pray for people. Susie is also involved with Aglow International which offers an excellent class called Game Changers by Graham Cooke.
It teaches us how to walk in the renewed mind. She has run this class for the women in our fellowship, and it has helped them tremendously in changing their mindset to be more Christ-like.
We also offer everyone healing and deliverance within our fellowship and beyond it. There is so much to learn about how to move deeper in the Holy Spirit, and we are always pursuing that.
We seek to live, walk and breath as Jesus did while on this earth. He brought heaven to earth and that is our goal!
