Christ Fellowship of Louisville

About Us

Purpose. Mission.

Our Mission

Christ Fellowship Church exists to proclaim the truth of God, to make disciples of Jesus Christ, and to reach Louisville and the world for Christ. 

Our Purpose

Christ Fellowship Church exists to glorify God by strategically and intentionally engaging the communities of the greater Louisville area with the gospel of Jesus Christ in order to make disciples and plant churches.

By the grace of God alone, and for the glory of God alone—Christ Fellowship Church will love God and obey his commands through: authentic Christian community, biblical worship, Christ-centered preaching and teaching, administration of the Lord’s Supper and baptism, intentional discipleship, strategic missional engagement according to the Acts 1:8 mandate, sacrificial giving, and an unwavering, overarching confessional conviction that submits wholly to Scripture and affirms the Baptist Faith and Message (2000).

Our Values

  1. We value holy Scripture as the only sufficient, certain, and infallible rule of all saving knowledge, faith, doctrine, and obedience. 

  2. We value the doctrines of grace as summarized in the five solas of the Protestant Reformation as the foundation, formation, and motivation for the Christian life.

  3. We value the expositional preaching and teaching of God’s Word for the ongoing edification and reformation of the church.

  4. We value historic Baptist polity—a church that is led by a plurality of elders and ruled by the congregation. 

  5. We value traditional Baptist distinctives such as confessionalism, regenerate church membership, and believers’ baptism by immersion. 

  6. We value joyful, Christ-centered, God-honoring corporate worship according to the Scriptures. 

  7. We value making disciples of Jesus Christ through congregational communities that shepherd, assimilate, and assist in building meaningful relationships among God’s people. 

  8. We value intercessory prayer that is consistent, systematic, and focused.

  9. We value biblical marriage, upholding God’s wise and beautiful design in the complementary, life-long covenant relationship between a man and a woman.

  10. We value the family as the first God-ordained unit of care and discipleship.

  11. We value the sanctity of human life for all people as created in God’s image, from conception through death.

  12. We value winsome, intentional evangelism as an act of love toward non-Christians, including children of our members, relatives, neighbors, co-workers, friends, and anyone with whom we have opportunity to share the gospel.

  13. We value planting like-minded, gospel-centered churches in Louisville and beyond.
