Have you been awakened?
Fellowship at Awakenings allows us to take time out of our busy week and daily routine to retreat to the comfort of a "rustic people" for good food, genuine relationships, and the undeniable presence of God's Spirit.
Awakenings is about coming and being loved, for who we are.
Awakenings Christian Fellowship
It's about GOD awakening the hearts of His people... It's about EVERYONE being afforded a second chance in their BROTHER'S eye.
We preach the Gospel
The Gospel Only
"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age" (Matthew 28:19-20). Jesus told us to spread His good news even to the very ends of the earth. Here at Awakenings, it's as simple as that.
We encourage and accept all
Everyone is Welcome
Everyone has a past and baggage they would rather keep under wraps, but here at Awakenings, we welcome all of you. We don't judge you by your mistakes; we love you as a treasured member of God's family. And in God's family, "there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for [we] are all one in Christ Jesus" (Galatians 3:28).
It's about Encouragement and Community
"A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity" (Proverbs 17:17). As a part of Awakenings, you'll find both.
Together, we'll be at the high points, celebrating just as loudly as you, and we'll be in the valleys, too, pulling you to your feet.
It's About our Faith
IT'S ABOUT GOD
Describing God is something that theologians, philsophers, scientists, and even poets have been trying to do for far longer than many of us have been alive. It's a daunting task, no doubt, but the Bible sums Him up fairly quickly and easily: He's love. He took the time to craft each of us, write the complete stories of our lives (complete with twists and turns), and even sent His Son, Jesus, to die for us on a cross. Just imagine that! God desires a relationship with each of us so badly that He sent His perfect Son to die on a cross, take the punishment for our sins, and - here's the best part! - make it possible for us to enjoy eternity in heaven with God, Himself, and the Holy Spirit.
IT'S ABOUT JESUS
Almost everyone can tell you who Jesus is, but they may not be able to tell you why He's so important. Jesus is the Son of God and came to earth as a baby. He grew up as 100% human and 100% God and lived a sinless life. Eventually, Jesus hung on a cross, was buried in a tomb, and rose from the dead three days later! Because of Him and because of His obedience, we can pray directly to God, live a life in step with Him, and, at some point, spend eternity in paradise. That's not the end of the story, though: Jesus is in heaven right now, getting it ready for His followers. The King of Kings and Lord of Lords is coming back for us, the church - His bride.
IT'S ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is Jesus' direct gift to us when we accept just how hopeless we are without Him and accept His free gift of salvation. We receive the Holy Spirit the instant we acknowledge Jesus as Lord and Savior. Really, the Holy Spirit is a Christian conscience. He gives us the ability to commune with God, understand the Bible, feel convicted when we sin, and become more Christlike.
IT'S ABOUT GOD'S WORD
The Bible is God's word on paper. Stop for a second and let that sink in. We have complete and unrestricted access to God's word. The Bible is a Christian's single greatest weapon against Satan and greatest comfort and source of guidance. It was written by human authors divinely inspired by God Himself and guided by the Holy Spirit. It is the single source for Christian truths, beliefs, and faith.
