Our Guiding Principles

That we remain clear in our call to biblical faithfulness, recognizing that the Word of God is our final authority in all aspects of ministry, congregational life, programming, and outreach.

That our church will be based theologically on an evangelical Anabaptist understanding.

That we will seek to be welcoming and inclusive to all people who wish to worship and fellowship with us and that we will intentionally plan to integrate them.

That our focus will be an intentional attempt to move our ministry outside of our walls into the local community.

That membership means that we are open and accountable to the community of faith.


That we will employ a congregational model of church governance led by a team of church elders, including pastors.

That we will attempt to provide worship opportunities which will reflect our recent heritage, and also move us into new expressions of our corporate encounters with God.

Approaches

Niverville Community Fellowship's approaches to their priorities include:

  • Meeting together regularly to connect with the heart of God; to be inspired and changed by a new understanding of the will of God
  • Study of the Word of God that is fearless and communal
  • Discernment of gifts, strengths and learned skills within our fellowship that is honouring, encouraging, and illuminating
  • Service that begins with an understanding of Christian justice; moves to an awareness of the felt needs of others; results in discernment that demands action
  • Embracing the Anabaptist heritage of radical commitment to following the teachings of Jesus
  • Continuing the example set by Jesus to transform injustice in all its forms and to be an advocate for those at the edges of society
