September 2022 marks 7 years of Rooted Fellowship. As some of you might know, the number SEVEN is a significant number in the Bible. Every year since year ONE, we have celebrated with a birthday Sunday. This year, and Lord-willing moving forward, we as a church would like to celebrate by pressing more into the presence of God as we cry out to Him to AWAKEN our hearts and souls to the wonder of who He is and to His transcultural Church.
We want to focus more on the new life found in Jesus Christ – a reminder for those who have crossed the line of faith and have a relationship with Jesus, and a call to those still in darkness to come to Christ, for He is our only True Living Hope.
We are Rooted
At Rooted Fellowship we believe that God has beautifully designed us for fellowship, that we have been wired for community. In our current fast-paced, tech-saturated, attention-deficit-disordered culture, we can often find ourselves believing that we are independent and that we don’t need anyone. This couldn’t be further from the truth. We need relationships. A relationship with God the Father, through Jesus the Son by the power of the Holy Spirit. This relationship then connects us to others, what the Bible refers to as God’s Family and the beauty of Gods Family is that it’s made up of individuals from all walks of life, from every race, nation and language. Our hope is that Rooted Fellowship would continue to be a safe space where people might come and experience the beauty and love of God and by grace, be woven into the rich diverse tapestry that is The Church. We are Rooted Fellowship.
We strive to see a world awaken to the wonder of God and his transcultural Church. We are a community-focused church, that seeks to reflect the diversity of our city through the power of the Gospel by being:
A life centred and saturated around the Truth of the Perfect Birth, Life, Death, Resurrection, Ascension & Return of Jesus Christ, affirming Him as Lord and Saviour.
(1 Corinthians 15:1-4; 1 Corinthians 15:12-19; 1 Peter 2:22; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 4:15; John16:28; Acts 1:9)
As the Gospel transforms the individual life of a person, we want to see a multiplying effect of that in the lives of others and we believe that happens best in the making of disciples.
(Matthew 28:18-20; 2 Timothy 2:2; Ephesians 4:11-16)
Is a view of community that reflects, embraces and enjoys the diversity of its context, and by the power of the Gospel transcends it and creates one new community in Christ.
(Ephesians 2:14-16; Romans 12:3-5; Revelation 7:9)
