We are always asked, what kind of church are you guys at Iron Faith Fellowship? Are you Pentecostal, Charismatic, Baptist, etc. Well, we are none of those! Shocked! I hope not; nowhere in the Word of God will you find these man-made denominational organizations! They were first called Christians at Antioch (Acts 11:26). We are a Bible believing fellowship trying to be the best Christians we can be, which is what God expects of us. We are a non-denominational fellowship just trying to serve our God and His creation. We want nothing more then to see people come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ through His word and by our example and to disciple them to do the same! Do we get excited, yes. Do we worship, yes. Do we preach from the Word of God all 66 books, yes! If we all worked as hard to be the best Christians we could be as we do being those other labels, what true fellowship we could have! The unity in the body would be seen as genuine and the devil would be less able to use us as an excuse to the world, claiming we are weak and powerless (Ephesians 4:1-16)! We are an imperfect people saved by Grace through faith and not of ourselves (Ephesians 2:8-10). Lets just have CHURCH as we have been given enough labels from the world! Though we understand God has given many gifts as mentioned in 1 Corinthians 12 there are a variety of gifts mentioned and God administers to whom He will! In our experience as well in the church at Corinth the gift of tongues was an abused gift and not handled in the orderly fashion as God intended, 1 Corinthians 14 God is not the author of confusion as we do not want to be, so to keep order in our service we do not support the use of tongues in our worship time, but ask those who believe they have that gift to reserve it for when they may be with mature believers and prayer time, and most importantly with an interpreter!
