God’s house is to be a “house of prayer.” For this reason, the people at Bend Christian Fellowship spend time before service in prayer to prepare their hearts before the Lord (Mark 11:17).
Worship to God is central at Bend Christian Fellowship because it is so important to God (John 4:24). Worship that really pleases God is wholehearted worship (Psalm 86:12).
The pattern of the New Testament Church is one that promotes spending time together, corporately and in small groups (Acts 2:46). These are times of worship, studying the Word, encouragement, relationship building, and prayer (Hebrews 10:24-25).
Since all believers are kings and priests unto God, we can expect every member of the Body of Christ to play a vital role in the corporate assembly life. At Bend Christian Fellowship, members of the body will often have opportunities to minister in the gifts of the Spirit and exhortation of the Body (1 Corinthians 14:26).
Giving is part of our worship to the Lord. At Bend Christian Fellowship, we bring our tithes and offerings to the Lord and present them before Him as an act of worship (Malachi 3:10).
At Bend Christian Fellowship, we firmly believe that God moves and operates through the leadership that He has given to us. For this reason, we encourage everyone to join the leader of the service as he leads in corporate worship and to honor the guidelines of the leadership in the flow of the service (1 Corinthians 14:40).
The Centrality Of The Word
The Word has a real place of prominence in Bend Christian Fellowship because we believe it to be powerful and able to change peoples’ lives (Hebrews 4:12).
The Restoration Of The Home
The family is very important here. We believe God wants to strengthen our families in these days (Malachi 4:6).
A Strong Committed Membership
We are a family at Bend Christian Fellowship. Families are committed to each other in love. We are committed to strengthening and building up each other in the faith. To help each other realize their full potential in God (I Corinthians 12:25).
