The Bible Fellowship Church is an expanding fellowship of churches united to make disciples of Jesus Christ. Over 10,000 people in over 70 congregations gather for worship in our churches every week mostly in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, and New York. We also have congregations in Maryland, Florida, New Mexico, and Mexico. This number is growing through the evangelistic efforts of each local church and through Church Extension Ministries (CEM) which plants new Bible Fellowship Churches.

CEM provides each church planter with monthly coaching by our director who is a licensed coach and ordained pastor. Church planters have a guaranteed salary through support raising. Our budget fills in any gaps between support raised and promised salary. We only plant between 10-12 churches at a time so that each church planter gets the support they need to be successful in church planting to God’s glory. We also hire short-term church planting interns.

We believe that all people are born sinners and by grace alone, through faith alone, those who believe receive forgiveness of sin based on Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection. We practice believer’s baptism by immersion. We hold to a premillennial view of Jesus Christ’s earthy return and reign.

Our local churches are self-governing through a Board of Elders elected by the congregation. Although autonomous, our churches are not independent. Each congregation calls its own pastor(s) with denominational approval.
