FELLOWSHIP RALEIGH CHURCH

WHO WE ARE

OUR VISION

We desire to make the truth, beauty, and compassion of the Gospel visible through the local church to families and youth in the city, to students on the six college campuses in and around Raleigh, and wherever our church has a presence of authentic community through our Fellowship Groups.

A PILLAR OF SPIRITUAL INFLUENCE

We aim to be a pillar of Biblical teaching in the floodplain of historic Raleigh growth. Additionally, we seek to be a pillar in serving real needs through partnerships, and a pillar of diversity in leadership, worship, and community.

A HEART OF PASSIONATE DISCIPLESHIP

Just as the human heart serves to circulate and re-oxygenate blood to empower the human body, Fellowship Raleigh seeks to serve as the spiritual heart of passionate discipleship to our city.

OUR VALUES

VERSE-BY-VERSE BIBLICAL TEACHING

2 Timothy 4:2

We are a church where God's Word is the engine and rudder. We hope that every sermon helps you love and understand your Bible more. Being committed to verse-by-verse teaching means we are studying the Bible the way God wrote it and cannot avoid the difficult subjects. 

CHRIST-EXALTING WORSHIP

John 4:24

Above all, we engage our heads, hearts, and hands in lifting up our Savior Jesus Christ with whole-life and musical worship. We love variety in our musical style. Whether new or old songs, we love singing the truth about who God is and what He has done. 

AUTHENTIC CHURCH COMMUNITY

Hebrews 10:24-25

We are a community where the gospel of Jesus Christ frees us from pretending and performing and allows us to be our authentic selves, to commit to one another in the local church, and to truly grow together by the grace of God.   

COMPASSIONATE MISSION

Luke 10:37

From a posture of compassion, we are a church that is bold in personal evangelism and active in mercy ministry that meets the real needs around us. Our goal is to show our city and world the love of God in word and deed.  



OUR HISTORY

The dream of Fellowship Raleigh was born Summer 2005 while 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.
