Thanks for stopping by! At Family Life Fellowship, we view our website as the front door to our ministry. Here you can find out what we're all about; our beliefs, our ministries, our worship experience, and you can even check out some of our recent messages.
But, here is what I really want you to do ... come join us for a Sunday service. When you come, you're going to find a church where God is doing some great things through some ordinary people just like you. So, check out the site, and then make plans to join us and find out for yourself. Whether you've attended church your whole life or you have never stepped foot in a church, we believe everyone can find their place at Family Life Fellowship.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Family Life Fellowship Church Covenant
As members of God's covenant family known as Family Life Fellowship, we commit ourselves to God and to one another to be Christ-like in our lives and relationships through the presence, guidance, and power of God's Holy Spirit.
We will love one another as Christ loved us, honor one another above ourselves, be kind to one another, encourage and build up one another, and offer hospitality to one another.
We will have a spirit of unity based on our bond in Christ, have equal concern for each other, rejoice when another is honored, and consider others as important as ourselves.
We will use our God-given knowledge to instruct one another, use our spiritual gifts to bless one another, use the Word of Christ to teach and admonish one another, and nurture one another toward spiritual maturity measured by the life of Jesus.
We will confess our sins to one another, pray for each other, help the weak, be patient with one another, forgive one another as the Lord forgave us, and restore those who sin.
We will not talk negatively about one another, not pass judgment on one another, not be morally impure, not use obscenities, not be greedy, but we will be filled with the Spirit."
We will let the light of godly lives shine together to bring glory to God.
