Where believers can belong, serve & grow

At Koinonia Fellowship, our desire is to foster a church community where believers can belong, serve and grow. The Greek word Koinonia means “fellowship”, and our prayer is to see people growing in fellowship with the Lord and with each other.

Our 4-Fold Philosophy of Ministry

It is our prayer that this 4-fold vision impact not only our local church, but our personal lives, our marriages, our vocations and callings.


Knowing Christ and passionately seeking Him is what eternal life is. Every believer has the assurance that salvation is a free gift from God and is received by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.

Proclaim Christ

Our desire and passion is to reach people with the gospel of Jesus Christ – across the street, across the country, across the world. Every believer has been called by God to be a witness of the gospel of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Grow in Christ

Growing in Christ is not done in isolation; it is done within a community of believers who love Christ and one another. We grow by serving one another and by using our God-given gifts and talents to build one another up.

Glorify Christ

We exist as a church to bring glory to God in all that we do. Every believer should be motivated to do all that we do for the glory of God. The only acceptable motives for serving God are His love and for His glory.
