Spiritual Light

The Lord Jesus Christ, Light of the World

The very first thing that God created was light. It is fundamental to the structure of space and time in this universe. Nothing else would exist without light. Not only does it give us the ability to see things, but the universe itself depends on the operation of electro-magnetic radiation, including the visible spectrum that we perceive as light and colour. Without light there would be no life on this planet, no warmth, no plants, no animals, no food, no mobile phones and no internet.

 Even before the creation of physical light, before the creation of the physical universe, there was, and always will be, spiritual light. Just as physical light is needed to see the universe, spiritual light is needed to see or know anything about God.

John 1:1-5

Membership and Council

Invisible Membership 

The Fellowship of Light (FEL) is absolutely committed to maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of its membership. The officers of FEL may only retain personal identification information (PII) for the purpose of voter registration, preventing electoral fraud and for authentication to our technical infrastructure. The officers and members are forbidden to disclose PII to any third party, even to a government agency.  

Anyone who agrees with our statement of Faith, may declare their affiliation to FEL, but FEL will neither confirm nor deny this.

We are conscious of the need to protect our members from persecution and will actively partner with any para-church organisation that seeks to support anyone being persecuted for the sake of Christ, even if they are not eligible for membership of FEL.

Biblical Theology, Fellowship of Light

Statement of Faith 

  • We believe that there is One God in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit
  • We believe that the original text of the Bible is inspired by God, namely the 39 books of the Old Testament and the 27 books of the New Testament
  • We believe in the authority and accuracy of the Bible in all matters or faith and conduct
  • We believe that God the Son became a human being, Jesus Christ, while also keeping his divine nature. He died in substitution for our sins, and was raised to life again, in real bodily form and now reigns with God in heaven.
  • We believe that all human beings are sinful and need to accept that the death of Jesus is the only atonement for their sins. All those who have accepted Jesus shall be raised to eternal life. All others will face eternal condemnation.
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit brings sprirtual light to believers, sanctifying them to make them holy.
  • We believe that Biblical preaching and teaching are gifts of the Holy Spirit
