Fellowship, a word that simply means friendly association; especially among people that share similar interests. At Southwest we not only encourage Christian Fellowship, but we believe that it is absolutely essential in order to have harmony not just with each other, but with the Lord. Consider the following verses:
We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.
And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
1 John 1:7
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
There are many more verses in the King James Bible about Christian Fellowship, but just from the above 3 verses we can see that not only is this fellowship sweet, but Christian Fellowship puts a special mark on us as believers and that is we have been washed in the Blood of Christ and as a result we are cleansed from sin!!!
Please look at the different links in our "Fellowship in Action". If you are not participating in any of these groups please know a couple of things: We all need the right kind of Fellowship in our lives. We no longer have fellowship with the world so that means we must have fellowship one with another. Also, you are more than welcome to join us in fellowship and we look forward to seeing you!!!
