Worship Service

May 2, 2021

Fellowship is governed through the Biblical practice of “Elder rule." The Scriptures teach that Elders (or overseers or shepherds) are responsible for the health and direction of the church. Elders are nominated by the body and selected by the existing Elder Board. The spiritual qualifications for Elders are found in I Timothy 3:1-16 and Titus 1:5-9. According to the apostle Paul, the local church assembly was to recognize those who were spiritually qualified for church leadership. These individuals were then to minister to the church by godly service and rule. Our Elder Board provides directional decisions to be carried out by our staff and core leadership.

Worship With Us

Come hear the name that mercy comes from
Come hear the name of Jesus
Come hear the laughter of all those who know
Come hear the name of Jesus
King of the nations, the faithful and true
Come hear the name of Jesus
Giver of life, He makes it all new
Come hear the name of Jesus

Come to the fountain that never runs dry
Come taste the grace of Jesus
Bring all your burdens, your pain and your pride
Come taste the grace of Jesus
The fullness of heaven poured out on earth
Come taste the grace of Jesus
There’s bread for your hunger and wine for your thirst
Come taste the grace of Jesus

Hallelujah! For the Lord almighty reigns
Hallelujah! He has risen from the grave


Come all ye people near and far
Come praise the name of Jesus
Lift up your voices and give him your hearts
Come praise the name of Jesus
Join now with heaven in eternity’s song
Come praise the name of Jesus
From the beginning, Lord over all
Come praise the name of Jesus

I love You Lord
Oh Your mercy never fails me
All my days
I’ve been held in Your hands
From the moment that I wake up
Until I lay my head
I will sing of the goodness of God

All my life You have been faithful
All my life You have been so, so good
With every breath that I am able
I will sing of the goodness of God


I love Your voice
You have led me through the fire
In darkest nights
You are close like no other
I’ve known You as a father
I’ve known You as a friend
I have lived in the goodness of God

Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me
Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me
With my life laid down, I’m surrendered now
I give You everything
Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me

Worthy of every song we could ever sing
Worthy of all the praise we could ever bring
Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe
We live for you

Jesus, the name above every other name
Jesus, the only one who could save
Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe
We live for you, oh, we live for you

Holy, there is no one like you
There is none besides you
Open up my eyes in wonder
Show me who you are, fill me with your heart
And lead me in your love to those around me


I will build my life upon your love
It is a firm foundation
I will put my trust in you alone
And I will not be shaken

Were creation suddenly articulate
With a thousand tongues to lift one cry
Then from North to South and East to West
We'd hear Christ be magnified

Were the whole Earth echoing His eminence
His name would burst from sea and sky
From rivers to the mountain tops
We'd hear Christ be magnified

Oh! Christ be magnified
Let His praise arise
Christ be magnified in me
Oh! Christ be magnified
From the altar of my life
Christ be magnified in me


When every creature finds its inmost melody
And every human heart its native cry
Then in one enraptured hymn of praise
We'll sing Christ be magnified

I won't bow to idols
I'll stand strong and worship You
If it puts me in the fire
I'll rejoice 'cause You're there too
I won't be formed by feelings
I hold fast to what is true
If the cross brings transformation
Then I'll be crucified with You

'Cause death is just the doorway
Into resurrection life
If I join You in Your suffering
Then I'll join You when You rise
And when You return in glory
With all the angels and the saints
My heart will still be singing
My song will be the same

Good news embracing the poor
Comfort for all those who mourn
For the broken hearted
We sing louder

Release from prison and shame
Oppression turning to praise
For every captive
Sing louder

Restoring sight to the blind
Breaking the curse of the night
For all in darkness
Sing louder

Proclaiming freedom for all
This is the day of the Lord
Beauty for ashes

Let there be light
Open the eyes of the blind
Purify our hearts in Your fire
Breathe in us we pray
Jesus, have Your way


There's no borders in Your love
No division in Your heart
God of heaven, God of freedom
There's no taking back the cross
No regret in what it cost
God of freedom, God of heaven

Take my life, and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee
Take my moments and my days
Let them flow in ceaseless praise
Let them flow in ceaseless praise

Take my hands, and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee
Swift and beautiful for Thee

Take my will, and make it Thine
It shall be no longer mine
Take my heart; it is Thine own
It shall be Thy royal throne
It shall be Thy royal throne

Take my love; my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure-store
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee
Ever, only, all for Thee

ELDER BOARD vs. SHEPHERDING BOARD

The Elders of Fellowship Bible Church of Northwest Arkansas have rewritten the church’s “bylaws” (1988). A distinction between the Elder Board and Shepherding Elders was made. The Elder Board’s responsibility is to set the spiritual, theological, and philosophical direction of the church. Their role and function has been described in the information above. Shepherding elders are men who are Biblically qualified for the office, who have been recognized by the church body, and who function in the “shepherding elder ministry” as described by the Board of Elders. These men focus on the shepherding rather than overseeing function. They are extensions of the Elder Board, but do not meet to set policy or direction.
