The purpose of Iron Faith Fellowship, is to glorify God by fulfilling the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:36-40)  and the Great Commision (Matthew 28:18-20)


Growing on Purpose

"but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him, who is the head, even Christ." Ephesians 4:15


Iron Faith Fellowship is dedicated to God's purpose for each believer. God desires for His children to grow and mature in their faith and practice. That process should have direction and a goal. The paradigm below illustrates the purposeful process  we will give each believer through to develop spiritual maturity.


Growing in God's purpose


"And He gave some as apostles,  and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building of the body of Christ." Ephesians 4:11-12


God has gifted each member of His body according to his purpose. Iron Faith Fellowship is committed to equipping each member in the discovery and exercise of God's gifts. There are many ministry opportunities available.    



What we believe

1. We believe that the 66 books of the Bible are the word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and that it has final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

2 Timothy 3:16 - All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.


2. In one God, Creator of all things, eternally existent in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Mark 1:9-11 - 9 It came to pass in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 And immediately, coming up from the water, He saw the heavens parting and the Spirit descending upon Him like a dove. 11 Then a voice came from heaven, "You are My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.


3. In both the full humanity and full Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 John 4:2 - By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God,


4. In His virgin birth; sinless life; miracles; substitutionary vicarious atoning death through His shed blood on the cross; in His bodily resurrection, ascension to the right hand of the Father; in His continued intercession of all believers; and in His personal and imminent return to receive His bride, The Church.

Isaiah 7:14 - "Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and you shall call His name Emmanuel."

Acts 4:10 - Let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands before you whole.

Luke 5:1 So it was, as the multitude pressed about Him to hear the word of God, that He stood by the lake of Gennesaret,

John 6:44 - No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day."


5. That all men are sinners and condemned to everlasting punishment as their just reward.

Romans 3:23 - for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,


6. That God, in His Grace and Mercy, provided a way to Himself that we might find His peace through His lamb.

Romans 5:8 - But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.


7. That for the salvation of the lost and sinful man, t is absolutely essential to receive, by Faith alone, the Lord Jesus Christ as one's personal Savior and Lord, thus regenerated  by the Holy Spirit, man is born again, becomes a child of God, and enters in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Romans 8:1-2 - 1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.


8. In the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the Head of the body; the church

Romans 12:4-5 - 4 For as we have many members and one body, but all the members do not have the same function, 5 so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.


9. In the continuing ministry of the Holy Spirit, who convicts men of sin, righteousness and judgment; and by indwelling the Christian, empowers him for Godly living and faithful service.

Matthew 28:19 - "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,"


10. in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved to eternal life with Christ and the lost to eternal damnation.
