Bible Quotes
We used to take sweet counsel together; within God's house we walked in the throng.
(Psalm 55:14) ESV

Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.
(Proverbs 27:17) ESV

Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
(Ecclesiastes 4:9-12) ESV

Do two walk together, unless they have agreed to meet?
(Amos 3:3) ESV

For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.
(Matthew 18:20) ESV

That they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.
(John 17:21-23) ESV

And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.
(Acts 2:42) ESV

For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.
(1 Corinthians 12:12) ESV

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, “I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you,
(2 Corinthians 6:14-17) ESV

And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, ...
(Ephesians 4:11-16) ESV

Because we are members of his body.
(Ephesians 5:30) ESV

Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
(1 Thessalonians 5:11) ESV

And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all.
(1 Thessalonians 5:14) ESV

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works,
(Hebrews 10:24) ESV

Not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
(Hebrews 10:25) ESV

That which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ.
(1 John 1:3) ESV

This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
(1 John 1:5-7) ESV

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.

Fellowship and the Bible

What does the Bible Say About Fellowship?

As Christians and members of a universal church numbering in the billions of people, we are all about sharing this common bond. In groups large and small, we oftentimes gather together in a spirit of commonality and shared belief in the life and death of Jesus, and his resurrection from the dead and subsequent ascension to Heaven to be with his (and our) Father, God. But what is this bond and what does the Bible say about the need to meet as fellows of the Christian church?

Fellowship is a communion of like-minded people who believe in Jesus Christ and his eternal message. Once we have accepted Jesus as our Redeemer and Savior -- who saved us from sin and purchased eternal life through his sacrifice on the cross – Christian fellowship tends to grow naturally. In other words, we want to be with others who believe as we do about Jesus Christ. In the Bible, we are told that even though we many times must live among unbelievers or those who refuse to accept the message of Jesus, we are all the time asked to share true fellowship only with those who love and cherish God and his Son, Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 6:14).

As true Christians, we will want and need to share fellowship. We know that Christian fellowship is necessary for our spiritual growth as Christians. It acts as nourishment, strengthening and supporting our faith. And when we have faith, we want to do good works, many times in communion and fellowship with other Christians. Perhaps the first example of true fellowship in the early Christian church is that which is described in the book of Acts (sometimes referred to as “Acts of the Apostles”). In this example, we are shown how believers in the message of Christ began to gather: “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayer” (Acts 2:42, NIV). This simple passage illustrates perfectly what, even today, we do in fellowship.

Fellowship completes us and our faith. The examples which are shown in the Bible call us to Christian fellowship. In Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians (1 Corinthians 1:9, NIV) we are told how God himself calls us to share it with his Son, Jesus Christ. And when we do as he tells us, he demonstrates faith in us, which helps create the justification we gain. Plus, we share in the mind of Jesus when we truly act as Christians, gathering in fellowship with him and others: “For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ” (1 Corinthians 2:16, NIV).

The grace we receive as Christians comes from our belief in the message of Christ and the fellowship we share. Paul’s eternal message, laid out in the New Testament, is that when we gather together as Christians, wonderful things happen. His benediction at the end of the second letter to the Corinthians is timeless and beautiful in its words: “May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all” (2 Corinthians 13:14, NIV). What more can be said when it comes to summing up all that fellowship gives us as Christians?2
