A Message From The Presiding Prelate
Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. It is with Jesus joy that I take this opportunity to share with you the vision that God has given me for this fellowship.
My vision for Kingdom Connection Fellowship is that we would be Spirit led, Spirit filled and bound together by relationship. I am trusting God for something fresh and different from the norm. I want us to experience fresh power, fresh oil and fresh fire!
It is my desire that we would become an answer to His prayer ...“Make them one as You and I are one.”John 17:22 It is also my desire that we would bear the true mark of discipleship... “Love one to another.” John 13:34-35
We will be a fellowship of integrity and one in which God’s people may have confidence. Our fellowship will be a place of rejoicing, a place of communion with Christ and a place of power. We will be a fellowship that will know and understand what it is to say, “I was glad when they said unto me, ‘let us go into the house of the Lord’”
I believe that as you read this, something will move in your spirit, saying perhaps, “This is a Fellowship for me!”
Please consider this as my personal invitation for you to become a part of what I know is going to be an anointed fellowship.
We should come with the mindset of being a blessing and a help to each other.
Bishop Jerome H. Ross, Sr.
Understanding Our Fellowship
Kingdom Connection Fellowship is not another church, we are a group of churches. We are not a denomination, we are interdenominational. We are not a convention, we are a fellowship connected by Kinship, Relationship, Friendship and Fellowship.
We are separate but united... advancing the Kingdom of God. We are not a money driven fellowship. Of course, money will be required to function but it will not be our primary goal.
The desire of Kingdom Connection Fellowship is to operate in the spirit of excellence. We desire to be a fellowship of the three C’s: Commitment, Consistency and Character. It is also our desire to be a fellowship that is Spirit driven; a fellowship that is evangelistic; and a fellowship that is family oriented.
Belonging to Kingdom Connection Fellowship will globalize your ministry, enlarge your territory and expand your mission in addition to increasing your impact by helping you to fulfill your purpose to advance the Kingdom of God.
Kingdom Connection Fellowship will strengthen you by you having the knowledge that someone is standing with you; partnering with you to change the world. Having a group of like-minded churches coming together to provide preaching, teaching, education, worship and fellowship.
Kingdom Connection Fellowship provides Credibility: We will gain through fellowship and relationship. Opportunity: Will allow male and female ministers a vehicle to exercise their gifts. Profitability: Belonging to something that is larger than oneself. And Ethical Accountability: We each will hold each other to the standard of Christ being accountable one to another.
The Essential Beliefs
I. The Scriptures
We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired, and is a perfect treasure of heavenly instruction; that it has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error for its matter; that it reveals the principles by which God will judge us, and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions shall be tried.
II. The True God
We believe the Scriptures teach that there is one, and only one, living and true God, an infinite, intelligent Spirit, whose name is Jehovah, the Maker and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth; inexpressibly glorious in holiness, and worthy of all possible honor, confidence and love; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; equal in every divine perfection, and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.
III. The Son of God
We believe Jesus Christ, according to the Scriptures, to be the only begotten Son of God, the rock that the church is built upon and the giver of Spiritual gifts for the perfecting of the saints, the work of the ministry and for the edifying of the body of Christ.
We believe the Scriptures teach that Sanctification is the process by which God sets us apart for His use and His glory, according to the will of God, we are made partakers of His holiness; that it is a progressive work, that it is begun in regeneration; and that it is carried on in the hearts of believers by the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, the Sealer and Comforter.
We believe that Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
VI. The Holy Ghost
We believe in the indwelling of the Holy Ghost for all Believers and that the Holy Ghost verifies and validates the Believer
VII. The Local Church
We believe in the full atonomy of the local church as an independent entity under the Lordship of Christ, through pastoral authority, with regard to: (A) Government, Polity, and Operations, (B) Discipline, and (C) with the added value of the Episcopacy as a covering.
VIII. Church Leadership
We believe in the value of Biblical terminology for leadership in the contemporary church: Bishop, Overseer, Pastor, Elder, Minister and Deacon. We believe that all of these are designaions for servant leaders.
