Christian Fellowship Ministries
Started in Prescott, AZ in the early 70's during the Jesus People movement, we have always been focused on reaching those that have been rejected by the religious world. When the church world didn't know what to do with the hippies getting saved, CFM was training them and putting them into the ministry. Since then, the fellowship has planted churches across the globe, in more than 100 nations and has multiplied to more than 3,000 churches world-wide.
Since 1973, the Prescott congregation has mothered an entire fellowship of churches that go by various names. These include The Door, The Potter’s House, Victory Chapel, The Lighthouse, Living Waters and the Christian Centers. The fellowship now includes more than 2,200 congregations worldwide. The Christian Fellowship Ministries take seriously Christ’s commission to “go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”
Therefore, our mission as a fellowship has always been to fulfill Christ’s Great Commission through discipleship, church planting, and world evangelism. It was Christ Himself who commanded His followers to “make disciples of all the nations,” and the simple obedience to this command by our founding Pastor Wayman Mitchell that has been imparted as our fellowship’s vision.
With this focus, we are constantly endeavoring to reach unsaved and unchurched people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to spread the good news of God’s love and saving grace throughout the world. Whether we use Christian bands, movies, dramas, street preaching, or door-to-door evangelism, our focus and mission is to help lead people into their own personal relationship with the Savior Jesus Christ.
“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, And he who wins souls is wise.”
