Growing Deep & Reaching Out
The vision of Fellowship Bible is to present every person complete in Christ. Just like a healthy, mature tree establishes a deep root system while at the same time branches out and bears fruit, so there is to be a parallel experience in the life of the believer. As a person grows deep in their relationship with Christ, there is to be a corresponding development of Christ-like character and spiritual fruit the Spirit of God produces in the life of the Christian. Our vision is to see every person experience and express authentic maturity in Christ.
