“Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles.”
— Acts 2:41-43, NKJV
Home & House Fellowship
Covenant Partner Groups
Breaking Bread is an integral component of the ministry and through home and community fellowship, believers share the word, fellowship, and a meal from house to house. Our local house and home fellowship, known as “Covenant Partner Groups” meet weekly for Sabbath Services and are held in various cities throughout the United States and abroad. Patterned according to Acts 2:42-47*, the believers fellowship is the heartbeat of the ministry.
The people are what the ministry is all about and every joint is necessary in building the kingdom of God. Home fellowship group leaders foster and promote environments that contribute to teamwork, cooperation and communion (fellowship) among believers that assists in fulfilling the vision of the Kingdom, the local assembly, and the family (Acts 4:32-35).
By overseeing a home fellowship group an outreach ministry leaders desire is developed to posses the heart of Elohim in fulfilling the great commission to reach their communities with the word and love of Christ.
Why house and home fellowship?
Why house and home fellowship instead of church buildings? We are not against a local meeting place and have established some great community houses of worship as led by the Lord and believe we will again someday according to the divine pattern.
In the meantime, the vision Christ gave to his Church (the body of Christ) was to build the kingdom and He would build the Church, so we are about His business of doing that.
Therefore, we strive to make the best usage of earthly resources in fulfilling that assignment and home and group fellowship has been the vehicle the Father has given us to accomplish that.
The church as we know it has become ineffective and inefficient in accomplishing the great commission and mandate given to us by Christ before He ascended and the building of so-called ministry and houses of worship has taken precedent over building Christ in people.
Many churches are no longer a sacred gathering place of help, healing and wholeness, instead they are houses void of power, presence and the persistence in maintaining communion with Christ or His children.
Go Into All The World
Where we are commanded to go:
Christ brought the Kingdom of God to earth and compelled men to enter in, and those that did He additionally commanded that we go and preach the gospel of the good news to the ends of the earth. (Matthew 24:13-15).
There would come a time (and now is) when men would do evil, the earth would groan in travail and the enemy would increase his plan to deceive the whole world.
Therefore, we do not have an unlimited amount of time to fulfill the great commission and must be about our Fathers business while we still have day, because night is coming and we will not be able to work (John 9:3-5).
As pioneers and leaders in the house and home fellowship movement, Apostle and Prophetess Ingram along with the SEED Faith Ministries team are equipping people to GO! It’s time to get boots on the ground!
After His disciples were filled with The Power of the Holy Spirit, Christ commissioned them to go into strategic realms and establish the government of God. Acts 1:8 “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”
You are here in SEED Faith Ministries to be equipped to GO! And here is where you are going…
Jerusalem (Acts 1:8a)
in Jerusalem (Acts 1:8a) – Represents the individual and family unity comprised of the local assembly of believers who train, learn, nurture and develop one another in discipleship for successful spiritual and personal living.
The assembly (gathering) provides a place of corporate accountability, teaching, worship, prayer, and fellowship with others of like faith. We believe (and Christ said) go and take Jerusalem first!
Judea (Acts 1:8b)
and in all Judea (Acts 1:8b) – Represents the immediate local community where believers are commissioned to go share the good news of the gospel of the Kingdom for corporate accountable living and expanding the kingdom in the marketplace, workplace and city-space.
Samaria (Acts 1:8b)
and in Samaria (Acts 1:8b) – Represents the city and surrounding states. This is where trained and commissioned believers provide ministries, outreaches, and services to our multi-cultured and unreached society bringing the gospel of Christ through works of service.
end of the earth (Acts 1:8c)
and to the end of the earth (Acts 1:8c) – Represents national and worldwide ministry outreach to support and establish ministries to take and preach the Gospel of the Kingdom to the entire world and unto every creature.
