Methodists, Charismatics, or any other conservative, Nicene- derived Christian Church.

Christforums is:

.... an orthodox Protestant forum whose members espouse the Apostolic doctrines in the Biblical theologies set forth by Augustine, Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin and John Knox etc. We do not "argue" with nor do we solicit the membership of people who espouse secular or cultic ideologies. We believe that our conversations are to be faith building and posts that advance heretical or apostate thinking will be immediately deleted and the poster permanently banned from the forum. This is a Christian community for people to explore the traditional theologies of Classical Protestantism. Those who would challenge the peace and harmony that we enjoy here as fellow believers are directed to another forum.

Enjoy your fellowship

In order to understand the importance of Christian fellowship, we must first understand what Christian fellowship is and what it isn’t. The Greek words translated “fellowship” in the New Testament mean essentially a partnership to the mutual benefit of those involved. Christian fellowship, then, is the mutually beneficial relationship between Christians, who can’t have the identical relationship with those outside the faith. Those who believe the gospel are united in the Spirit through Christ to the Father, and that unity is the basis of fellowship. This relationship is described by Jesus in His high-priestly prayer for His followers in John 17:23. The importance of true Christian fellowship is that it reinforces Christ centeredness in our mind and helps us to focus on Christ and His desires and goals for us. As iron sharpens iron, in true Christian fellowship Christians sharpen one another's faith and stir one another to exercise that faith in love and good works, all to God’s glory.

I'm so new.

I was prayed for by all kinds of Christians when I most needed it, and so it was natural for me to want to pray for others also

when they really need it. Thank you, Jesus, for answered prayers.

 

He saves us from evil, and guides us in our journey.

I loved the late Billy Graham. Still love him in the Lord, and have attended Baptist churches, and Assembly of God churches.:RpS_thumbsup:

I loved the late Billy Graham.

Yes, Billy Graham was (probably) a once-in-a-lifetime phenomena. When my siblings and I were kids (must have been in the 1970's) my parents took us to see Graham preach at McCormick Place in Chicago. I wish I had been older at the time because I probably would remember it better. I love watching him on TV when they show the old films of him preaching at his many crusades. He was a born evangelist.

Sorry about this double post. There was some sort of server error and it looked like it didn't post the first time. Does anybody know if one can delete one's posts?

Hello and welcome, @2002 ! I share your admiration of the late, great Billy Graham who is surely at home with our dear Lord. The Lord truly worked through this man so that many souls would be saved.

@Eric T. Double post was a new issue that began today but should now be resolved.

Yes, I saw Billy preach in Memorial stadium in Baltimore about 1976.

He and his team were outstanding. He was the real deal!

He still is the real deal in a new place, (Heaven)and I believe that.

Welcome 2002, we are the same age. Billy had a much deeper effect on people in 1950 to 1970 that most afterward.We will likely never see that type of large crusades ever again. My parents supported him financially all their lives, my wife and I went to one crusade and she went to three. Many people were introduced to Jesus Christ for the very first time under Billy's preaching. His words live on today, as he was filmed and recorded for history.

It was 1975 that I saw Billy and his team at the great crusade at Memorial stadium in Baltimore.

Wow, it was something! Wife and I went forward to accept Jesus even though we were then

already saved and members of a fine church. It was our one chance to see him speak in person.

 

In my case, 2002 refers to the year of my healing from my near fatal illness. I will

write about that when I can. God bless you all in Jesus!
