The Bible Fellowship Church
With 64 churches in five U.S. states, and two in Mexico, the Bible Fellowship Church is An Expanding Fellowship of Churches United to Make Disciples of Jesus Christ. In addition to local churches where over 10,000 people gather for worship each week, we team together in missions (Board of Missions at www.bfcbom.org), church-planting (Church Extension Ministries at www.churchplantingbfc.org), children's discipleship ministry (Victory Valley Camp at www.victoryvalleycamp.org), family retreats and conferences (Pinebrook Bible Conference at www.pinebrook.org), and care for our seniors through our preferred Continuing Care Facility (Fellowship Community at www.fellowshipcommunity.com).
Are we a "denomination"-- Yes, we are a "denomination" of networked and like minded churches. We share a common doctrinal statement and a book of Church order. However, unlike some denominations, each church is organized on a local level with Pastors and Elders seeking to provide spiritual leadership. Each local church has its own role of members or are vital to the life of that body. Each congregation calls its own pastor, determines local leaders and ministries, and exercises spiritual care for one another. Every year, each church sends local representatives to BFC Conference for a meeting of our sister churches. Denomination "decisions" are made by representatives of the local church.
We are connectional-- We believe that churches should help one another together for the gospel. This allows us to partner with our sister churches for events and ministries.
