Who We Are

Mission and Purpose 

Fellowship Community Church of Mechanicsville exists for the purpose of teaching the Word of God and watching for the miraculous. We watch for the miraculous because that is where God is actively at work and our desire is to join what He is blessing rather than going our own direction. As a church, we seek to be explained by what God is doing and that is the miraculous.

Statement of Faith

We teach:

  1. The Bible is the inspired Word of God, His full written revelation, and our only rule of faith and practice.
  2. The unity and trinity of the Godhead – God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit.
  3. That God the Father is sovereign in all things.
  4. That Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man.  He is God’s only begotten Son, the sole Mediator between God and man.  We further teach His pre-existence, His incarnation, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His atonement, His bodily resurrection from the grave, and His visible return from heaven to reign forever.
  5. The Holy Spirit is fully God; He is personal and active in salvation, sanctification (setting apart as holy), and preservation.
  6. That God created all things.
  7. That man was created in the image of God, that he sinned in Adam, that he is a sinner by nature and by choice and he is spiritually dead.
  8. That salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ apart from human merit, works or ceremonies.  Those who are in Christ are made spiritually alive, kept by God’s power and are eternally secure in Him.
  9. That the church is the spiritual body of which Christ is the head and that there is a two-fold aspect of the church, the universal and the local.  Also that the ordinances of the church are two in number: baptism — the immersion of the believer in water following salvation, and the Lord’s Supper — a remembrance of the new covenant for the atoning death of Christ until He returns.
  10. The resurrection of the human body; the everlasting existence of all men either in heaven or hell; divine judgments, rewards and punishments.

Fellowship

Fellowship is important to the family of God. God has brought His people together to share a common life, a common purpose, a common function, and to be partners in truth. The example for us is the fellowship, partnership, and commonality that goes on within the Trinity. True Fellowship belongs to those in the light.

Community

Community suggests both genuine fellowship within our church family and an open door to those around us. A community does not meet just on Sundays; a community constantly cares for each other in unity. We are to be a light in our community, a place of peace for those caught in the world, a place of forgiveness for those guilty of sin, and a place of hope for the hopeless.

Church

Church is God’s design for the assembly of people called by His name – according to His Word. Therefore, God has charted the course for this church; our fate is part of God’s plan; the body of believers have been chosen by God; our reason for existence has been defined by God.

May you find fellowship and community here. Our prayer is that we live up to all that God has called us to be.
