WHAT WE BELIEVE
We are a family of Christians who are connected through Christ and have committed to serve him together. At our core are both Anabaptist and Evangelical roots. These roots are the basis for our Confession of Faith which is our guide for biblical interpretation, theological identity, and ethical practice. These are represented by the following five essentials.

God’s word is truth and it is the basis for all we do. Our desire is to have every ministry and every activity subject to the word of God. In all settings and to all questions, we respond with, “what does the Bible say?”
CHRIST IS THE CENTER OF OUR LIFE
The heart of the Christian faith is the firm confidence that Jesus died for our sins and was raised from the dead. This is not a message we believe just one time in order to be saved, but a foundational truth that impacts all that we do and all that we are. At Good News Fellowship Church we seek to constantly ask ourselves, “What differences does the death and resurrection of Jesus make here and now?”
THE GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL
Good News Fellowship exists to glorify the God of the Bible: by maintaining and promoting His worship both corporately and individually, by building up followers of Jesus, and by sharing the good news of Jesus.
THE CHURCH AS THE COMMUNITY OF FAITH
Entrance into its membership occurs through confession of faith in Christ and baptism upon that confession. We see ourselves responsible to support, encourage, and hold one another accountable in our journey of faith. We cannot become mature believers without other parts of the body of Christ.
SHARING THE EFFECT OF JESUS IN OUR LIVES
We believe Jesus Christ has charged us to make disciples. We are called to share the Good News of Jesus Christ and be a witness for Him in both word and deed as individuals and as a church family.
We believe in the support of and involvement in missions both local and global.
