Christian Family Fellowship is a non-denominational, Reformed Baptist church located just outside of the Coffey Park neighborhood in northwest Santa Rosa California. We are a Bible-reading, Bible-preaching church adhering to the doctrines of grace and the 5 Solas of the Reformation. We invite you to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ with us this Sunday!
We seek to exalt and worship God in every aspect of our lives and especially in our corporate worship services. Our services are centered on Christ and saturated with scripture.
In our music we seek a balance between traditional hymns and more contemporary songs from groups like the Getty’s and Sovereign Grace Music. We select songs that are both theologically accurate and easy to sing as a congregation. Most week’s our worship team consists of a guitar, piano, bass, cajon and a few singers. This time usually lasts about 45 minutes and includes announcements, scripture reading and prayer.
We commit to preaching and teaching scripture. We seek to proclaim the true gospel which comes to us from the pages of Scripture. The goal of each message is to accurately present the God intended meaning and application of the chosen passage. As Paul said “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” We teach all scripture. Not just the easy parts.
Pastor Steve Wadleigh preaches three times a month and tends to preach through books in the New Testament.
Pastor Don Strand preaches once a month. He tends to preach through books of the Old Testament.
Children are a welcome part of our congregation. You are always welcome to keep your children with you during the service. Many families chose to include their younger children in time of singing before taking them to children’s church.
* Childcare is available for infants through Pre-K at the start of service.
* Kindergarten through 5th grade participate in the singing and are dismissed for Sunday School during the sermon.

Names are important and our name says a lot about what you will see when you visit.
Christ Himself is the very life of our church. Everything we do as a body of believers revolves around Him. This church is His church—Jesus Christ is the Lord here because He is the Alpha and Omega of our lives. He is our Savior, our Redeemer and our King. As a group of people who have believed upon Christ, we love Him, follow Him, obey Him and serve Him. We are all about Christ!
We are family by our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. His spiritual life invigorates our people and our church. The truth of His Word and His love knits our hearts together. Despite our many differences of family background, education, business, and social standing, we are one in Christ.
Is the way we define our theological and historical distinctive. We are Reformed and Baptistic which means we stand in fellowship with people who hold to the great tradition that extends back through the sixteenth century English Reformation to the Apostolic foundation of the first century church. Therefore we believe in the full inspiration and authority of Scripture, salvation by grace alone, the baptism of believers only by immersion, the priesthood of believers, the eternal security of the redeemed, and more. These are the primary God-exalting truths that mark our identity.
The word “church” is the English word for what the Bible describes as those who are “the called out ones”. Accordingly, Christian Family Fellowship is made up of people who have been called out of darkness by the power of God into the light of His kingdom. We have been drawn by the Spirit into fellowship with Christ. Our members are in the world, but no longer of the world. We are the church; believers called Christians in Family together as a Fellowship around the centrality of Jesus Christ and His gospel of salvation.
Christian Family Fellowship is our name but it is more than merely a name. We are a congregation who have been redeemed by Christ, who support one another in loving fellowship, who hold to the historic creeds and doctrines of the Christian church and who are called out of the world to be the church of God.
Is this the kind of church of which you want to be a part?
