Since the first group met in Seattle in April, 1935, we have discovered firsthand that the name of Jesus is the most effective common denominator for the building of relationships, the deepening of friendships, and the establishment of mutual trust between people and nations. Through relationships built upon Jesus, walls of division melt away and are supplanted by the unifying, reconciling, unconditional love which Jesus offers the world in his name. When we embrace and accept this love which Jesus offers to all, fellowship with a holy God and with one another ensues, bringing peace and reconciliation between people throughout the world.
Jesus was asked by a religious leader who was an expert in the law “What is the greatest commandment?” We believe his answer is foundational to who we are and paramount to understanding what it means to “live relationally” within the Kingdom of God.
Jesus responded, “Love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’. All the law and the prophets hang on these two commandments.”
We are people of prayer, believing that the prayer of faith can change anything! Jesus said, “Wherever two or three are gathered together in my name, I am there.” Therefore, we not only engage in personal prayer, but encourage participation in and support of prayer groups. These groups meet in homes and offices; in large venues and small; in the U.S. Congress, in State capitols and in parliaments around the world; in sports venues, corporate board rooms, prisons, factories, military bases, and in diners and cafes, to name but a few. We believe that whenever and wherever a group gathers in the name of Jesus—across our nation and around the world—Jesus is there!
Incorporated in 1949, The Fellowship Foundation, Inc., is a faith-based, non-profit organization established for the purpose of providing fiduciary oversight and accountability to a wide range of ministries. These ministries are conducted primarily by an ecumenical, bi-partisan fellowship of laypeople of all ages, ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds. As followers of Jesus, we seek relationally to introduce the all-consuming, transforming and reconciling person and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth to people from all walks of life and every nation of the world.
