|The Purpose of JeffreyBowman.com|
If you only remember one thing about this site:
Spirituality = Questions that cannot be answered
Religion = Answers that cannot be questioned
- this is why I've never been "religious"
This site is to allow people to read and listen to some of Pastor Jeff's theological, social, and philosophical writings and sermons. It is sponsored by Fellowship Bible Church of Southern California, an IRS 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization and California non-profit corporation.
Currently, Fellowship Bible Church is a "church without walls" on the internet with the purpose of not only disseminating Pastor Bowman's studies but to encourage people to consider the God of all Grace.This world is filled with various religions and belief systems. Very few on planet earth deny that there is a creator. We'd like to tell you that God's care and concern for you go beyond what you'd ever imagine. He extends that love to you on the basis of His Grace.
As non-religious Christians, we invite you to experience God's Grace in your life. This website was created to provide you with information about life that is centered in God's Grace.
Poke around, read the articles and join with us in the celebration of GRACE.
Here is what we believe:
Freedom in Christ – Galatians 5:1
Christ has really set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and
don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law.
Galatians 5:1 (New Living Translation)
have freedom now, because Christ made us free. So stand strong. Do not
change and go back into the slavery of the law.
Galatians 5:1 (New
is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not
let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
Galatians 5:1 (New
fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do
not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. Galatians
5:1 (New King James Version)
Fellowship Bible Church believes in freedom, freedom in Christ. Often churches say: “Come to Jesus and He’ll set you free! O.K., now here are the rules…” And to that we say: Galatians 5:1.
Fellowship Bible Church allows its people to be themselves. We don’t run our church by legalism, we run it by GRACE. This is more than a belief – it is the core of our fellowship. We believe in freedom in Christ, freedom to enjoy the Grace of God in life.
The Apostle Paul tells us: “So let no one judge you…” So we don’t, nor do we judge others in their freedoms in Christ. (Col. 2:16; Rom. 14:13)
statements or summaries of beliefs have often had a splintering effect
Statements of doctrine were not so much stating what was believed
by a church but rather what was not believed, or the boundaries
upon which Christian fellowship was extended.
Summarizing Ephesians 4:4-6, we believe in:
presupposes that we accept the Bible as the Word of God and is the only
source for divine viewpoint. Like
any other church we believe in other theological concepts but they are
secondary compared with the sevenfold unity of the Spirit.
approach to other theological concepts and Christian living can be
summed up like this:
