We believe that the Bible is the inspired, living, breathing, authoritative word of God, and it is the Truth given by God to his people for the practice of all faith and life (Hebrews 4:12). We embrace that following Jesus is reflected in our commitment to love God with all that we are, all that we have, and to love our neighbor as ourselves.
We also believe and incorporate the beliefs of the ancient church as expressed in the following creeds (click each for the text):
At Real Life Fellowship, our mission is to make the love of God known to everyone, by any means, no matter what. Although many refer to this as a missional or Bible-centered church, we would rather just say that we are all about Jesus. It is our hope that you are more impressed with Him than you are with the music or sermon. We are an intergenerational faith community that seeks to love God and those around us deeply as we desperately embrace grace in the midst of our messy and real lives. We do not claim to “have it all together” or pretend like we do. Our ministry does not operate around programs or any particular personality type, except that of Jesus, because we believe that He is God’s ultimate love expression –His only Son sent for us. We seek to respond to what God has done, is doing, and wants to do through living passionate, desperately dependent, Spirit-led lives that strive to reflect Him in all that we are and do.

Real Life Fellowship gathers throughout the week in smaller groups doing ministry, building relationships, and experiencing life together all over the city of Holland and beyond. We believe that Church is what we are, not somewhere we go. However, we are blessed to share a beautiful facility with our brothers and sisters at La Casa de mi Padre. Since November 2016, God has been blessing us richly as we are learning to live out the Gospel in a cross-cultural setting. While we still meet independently as distinct congregations, we take every opportunity to work together in the community and celebrate that we are one body in Christ.
In that light, we consider the coffee shops, school campuses, homes, neighborhoods, bars, streets, etc. all around us to be the different places we utilize to help nurture our relationships, lives, ministry, and walk with God.
