At Fellowship, our vision is “to change the heart and soul of Northwest Arkansas and the world.” Our mission statement for how we intend to accomplish our vision is “to produce and release spiritual leaders who know and express the authentic Christ to Northwest Arkansas and the world.” We want to see people come to know Jesus and live out their mission of making disciples here and throughout all nations. Although we have crafted the words of our mission statement in a very intentional way, the idea isn’t anything new. We want to do what Jesus commissioned His followers to do before He ascended into heaven. We look to the Scriptures to be our guide and model for how the church is to be present in the world today.
As we consider our calling as a church, we will study the first-century Church with a key question in mind: What does it look like to see Jesus change lives, communities, cities, and the world? To answer this, we will investigate the stories of the early Church, recorded for us in the Book of Acts. Each week we will look at a specific church in a specific city.
It is our desire to be a church actively seeing the gospel spread in our day. We pray that God would tear down the idols of sex, power, money, and greed in our city and reconcile people to Himself. Join us in praying the prayer of Paul in Ephesians 3:14-21, that God would do immeasurably more in our cities in our own day than we could ever ask or think. As we enter the fall, it is our hope to pray bigger, dream bigger, and hope bigger than we ever have before that Jesus can and will, through the power of the Holy Spirit, make Himself known through the lives of His people, the Church.
