Who We Are

We are a nondenominational church fellowship of believers that come from many different traditions, backgrounds, and locations. Our focus is on the person and work of Christ, we gather in His name alone, and proclaim “Jesus is Lord”. We have a place for you in the fellowship of loving people who love our Lord and love each other. The Banner Elk Christian Fellowship is a fellowship of the Body of Christ. We love each other and enjoy being together; so fellowship is a big part of who we are. We welcome all, and you; as a visitor are just as much a part of this fellowship as those that have been coming for many years. We invite you to fully participate in the meetings and functions of this church. We offer communion, discipleship classes and a contemporary worship service each Sunday along with several small group meetings throughout the week.

What We Believe

The Banner Elk Christian Fellowship has been meeting together since 1981. We come from many different backgrounds and have some common beliefs that we consider essential. Those beliefs that we commonly agree upon are the inspiration of the Bible as the Word of God and as the final authority in matters of faith and practice. We believe that God is loving, just, the creator, and existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is eternal, the incarnated Son of God, virgin born, lived a sinless life, and died upon a cross for our sins and that God attested to His finished work on the cross by raising Him from the dead and seating Him at His own right hand. We believe that the sacrificial death of Christ on the cross fully and eternally paid for our sin, and by our faith in Him we are granted eternal life and fellowship with Him. We believe in the person and work of the Holy Spirit; that He dwells in the lives of believers, and is the enabler, convicter, comforter and counselor.
