Fellowship of Evangelical Bible Churches
11605 W. Dodge Rd., Ste. 3
Omaha, NE 68154
This Fellowship grew out of the immigration of Mennonites from Russia/Ukraine into the praire states and provinces between 1874-1880. Established with an emphasis on true repentance, conversion, and a life committed to Jesus as Savior and Lord, the Fellowship was founded in 1889 under the leadership of Isaac Peters and Aaron Wall. The founding churches were located in Mountain Lake, Minnesota, and in Henderson and Jansen, Nebraska. The Fellowship has since grown to 43 churches with approximately 5000 members in Canada, Paraguay and the United States.
World evangelization has been an integral part of the Fellowship since its beginning. Today, for every 50 members in the home churches, one missionary is serving. The Fellowship does not direct its own mission efforts, but participates with existing evangelical "faith" mission agencies. Personnel from Fellowship churches serve under in 22 countries under almost 40 agencies.
Doctrinally, the Fellowship has its roots in historic Anabaptism but was strongly influenced by the Bible School Movement. Believer's baptism is by immersion. The Fellowship is holding fast to the inerrancy of Scripture; the deity of Christ; and the need for spiritual regeneration by faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ as payment for sin. Members look forward to the imminent return of Jesus Christ and retain a sense of urgency to share the gospel with those who have never heard of God's redeeming love.
