World Christian Fellowship                                        
equipping, praying, raising awareness

World Christian Fellowship sponsors several activities that run throughout the year. If you have questions about any of these events, contact us by coming to the Agapé Center or call our office at x5098.

Salt and Light Elective Chapels

What value does salt have if it has lost its flavor?  What purpose is light if it cannot be seen?  In Matthew 5:13-16, Jesus proclaims that his followers are to be visible, set-apart people in the world, and the way to do this is by following his teachings—the ethics of God’s Kingdom laid out in the Beatitudes just before this statement.  If our lives are not altered by this teaching, we are indeed useless as disciples: tasteless, invisible.  Salt and Light chapel, as a fellowship of transformed believers, seeks to explore how we are to follow this teaching in our lives.  Through the witness of faithful followers of Christ throughout the world and the encouragement of one another we hope to better understand and better enact what it truly means to live as Jesus lived, to see the world through the eyes of God.
