Who we Are
At Fellowship of the Rockies our staff is united as a family. In unity, we are eager to fulfill God’s calling for each of our lives as we help equip others to grow in their personal relationship with God. Every follower of Christ is called to be something bigger than themselves— the Body of Christ. We believe we all have a role to play in building God’s Kingdom and we strive to come along side others as they discover their role. Our job as a staff is to lead with vision and humility while staying true to our church’s calling.
WHAT TO EXPECT
From the moment you enter our church, you'll be made to feel at home. Maybe you’re returning to church after some time away, or coming to church for the very first time. Maybe you're an active church attendee who just moved to town and needs to find a new church home. Whatever your story may be, you are welcome here.
Our weekend services are an opportunity for you to connect with God as well as other believers in a casual, inviting atmosphere. Our services include contemporary worship, a relevant message, and a time of ministry and prayer.
If you have children, you'll want to take advantage of our safe and secure children's ministry called F.O.R. KiDS which is designed just for them.
As you look around you will see everything from shorts to sport coats on the weekends. Our concern isn’t what’s on the outside, but what’s on the inside. Come as you are. Jesus accepts you just as you are when you come to Him... and so do we!
When you visit Fellowship of the Rockies for the first time, make sure to stop in the foyer—just outside the Worship Center—after the service to talk with one of our pastors and get to know more about us.
We Look Forward to Seeing You Soon.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
Our Core Values
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellences of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 1 Peter 2:9
Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God. Romans 15:72:9
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:1-2
Statement of Beliefs
God is the creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed as three persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; 3:22 Psalm 90:2 Matthew 28:19 I Peter 1:2 II Corinthians 13:14
Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of a virgin. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on the cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return to Earth someday to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords. Matthew 1:22, 23 Isaiah 9:6 John 1:1-5; 14:10-30 Hebrews 4:14, 15 I Corinthians 15:3,4 Romans 1:3-4 Acts 1:9-11 I Timothy 6:14, 15 Titus 2:13
ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with the power for living, understanding of the spiritual truths and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer spiritual gifts when we are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily. II Corinthians 3:17 Act 1:8 I Corinthians 2:12, 3:16 Ephesians 1:13 Galatians 5:25 Ephesians 5:18 John 16:7-13, 14:16, 17
ABOUT THE BIBLE
The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human writers, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian belief and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error. II Timothy 3:16 II Peter 1:20, 21 II Timothy 1:13 Psalms 119:105, 160, 12:6 Proverbs 30:5
People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called SIN. This attitude separates us from God and causes great problems in our lives. Genesis 1:27 Psalm 8:3-6 Isaiah 53:6a Romans 3:23 Isaiah 59:1,2
Salvation is God’s free gift to us, but we must accept it. We can never makeup for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his/her life by faith. Romans 6:23 Ephesians 2:8,9 John 14:6, 1:12 Titus 3:5 Galatians 3:26 Romans 5:1
ABOUT ETERNAL SECURITY
Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. If you have been genuinely saved, you cannot “lose” it. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us such security. John 10:29 II Timothy 1:12 Hebrews 7:25, 10:10, 14 I Peter 1:3-5
People were created to exist forever. We will exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence. John 3:16, 2:25 Romans 6:23 Revelation 20:15
