Our mission is to transform religious and irreligious people through the Gospel into passionate disciples of Jesus.


Our unique kingdom passion is to make the truth, beauty, and compassion of the Gospel visible through the local church to the city, campuses, and communities within, around, and beyond Raleigh.


In 7 years we envision God maxing out our church's ministry at 410 Lord Berkley--our divine address. Getting us to this point we envision God multiplying our influence 4X as a Pillar of Biblical Teaching in downtown Raleigh and as a Heart of Passionate Discipleship to RDU.

The dream of Fellowship Raleigh was born Summer 2005 while Pastor Matt was taking a church planting class at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Chicago.  From the beginning, the vision has been to plant a dynamic local church in the heart of a strategic city where there is both cultural diversity and a significant college and university presence. Like any living and breathing story, many things have changed along the way, but the important aspects of our vision and values have always remained the same. Our mission is to transform religious and irreligious people through the Gospel into passionate disciples of Jesus.

Fellowship Raleigh is a non-denominational, elder-led local church. We believe in the centrality of the Bible, the Gospel, and the local church in our approach to ministry. We maintain partnerships with many other churches and networks centered around care, common mission, and like-minded philosophy or ministry.
