Jones Christian Fellowship

Here’s a little on who we are. We love God, and we love people! We believe that it is by the grace of God, the sacrifice, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and our belief in Him, that we are saved. We believe in living purposeful, exemplary lives in our communities, workplaces and wherever we go. We also believe that, as is showcased in Romans 3:23-26 (the “NLT” version is a worthy look up!), we’re not perfect, but in our ever growing relationship with God, wake up each day and work on living the great lives we're made to live!

This is a club that aims to support each other, as well as our Rice and wider community.
