"Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some [is]; but exhorting [one another]: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching ” Hebrews 10:25(KJV). God created human beings with fellowship in mind, first with Himself, then with others. The scriptures encourage us not only to develop a dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ but also to interact and commune with fellow believers in the body of Christ.
Therefore, fellowship is interlaced in every component of our ministry. Here at CFC we emphasize fellowship that promote unity among the body, provides encouragement to one another, and exercise unconditional love for each other.

“Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:1 (NIV)

Evangelism goal is to glorify God by proclaiming the good news that Jesus Christ died for the sins of the world, rose victorious over death, transforms lives by the power of His Spirit and is coming again to establish His kingdom. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Matthew 9:37,38 (KJV)
“Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.” James 5:14,15
Are you physically, spiritually or emotionally sick? The bible tells us that Jesus Christ carried our sicknesses as well as our sins, and God is the healer of the whole person. ”But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5
