The church began as a Methodist congregation in 1893 and then closed in the mid 1900’s. The building was reopened and established as the Evangelical Fellowship Church in 1979 by a group of local christians and has been a witness for Jesus Christ ever since. The congregation seeks to honor and glorify God, to carry out His will, to manifest the unity of our faith in Jesus Christ as God and Savior. It is our mission is to spread the kingdom of God and to foster Christian fellowship and love by the preaching of the Word of God, and administer the sacraments of both Communion and Baptism.

Statement of Faith

1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God. 2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and     Holy Spirit.  3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life,     in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His     bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His     personal, pre-millenial return in glory and power. 4. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men, regeneration by the Holy     Spirit is absolutely essential. We believe that salvation is the act of sovereign grace     conferred on the believer by a loving heavenly Father and that it is by grace alone;     that man's good works are of no avail in bringing personal redemption, good works     being rather the fruit of devoted Christian discipleship. 5. We believe that men in his natural condition is a sinner and alienated from God.     That the sinner must repent of his sin before he is in condition to receive forgiveness     of sin and regeneration. 6. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose application of the     blood of Christ to the heart of the believer; he is cleansed from all sin and enabled to     live a godly life, victorious over all power of the devil. 7. We believe in the resurection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto     the resurection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.  8. We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in Christ.  9. We believe that the walk of a Christian should be one of continual growth in grace     and the knowledge of the Son of God.  10. We believe in two sacraments: Baptism, which is the outward sign of the new birth,       and the Lord's Supper, which is also an outward acknowledgment of faith in Christ.   To read and print the full set of articles in the church by-laws, please click below: By-Laws & Articles of Faith of the Evangelical Fellowship Church
