History
Agape Fellowship Christian Center was founded by Curl Oral Hazell. It held its inaugural service in a conference room at an area hotel on September 4, 2005 in Conyers, Georgia. It purchased its own facility on December 2, 2014.

Agape officially became a part of the Bethel Gospel Tabernacle Fellowship International on October 30th, 2011.

Mission Statement
To continually strive to be a church community that fosters Christian fellowship with people of all races and background. This fellowship is founded upon salvation through the cross of Jesus Christ and obedience in adhering to the uncompromising teaching of Scripture, which is exemplified by genuine love for one another, as Christ commanded us.  Agape Fellowship Christian Center not only endeavors to cultivate Christian Fellowship within its local congregation, but also to consolidate efforts with other ministries, both at home and abroad, to evangelize in obedience to Christís command to go into all the world, to preach and teach the Gospel, and to baptize in the name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, thereby inviting the world to enter into the same joy of fellowship in Christ as we enjoy. 

What We Believe 

  • God 
    We believe in one God who is eternally existent in three persons (the Holy Trinity): God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. They are one and partake of the same divine nature/substance (John 10:30; John 15:26)

  • God the Father 
    He is the Creator (Gen 1:1). He begot the Son (John 3:16). This is an eternal act of the FatheróGod from God. The Son always was, just as the Father always was (John 8:58). The Holy Spirit proceeded from the Father (John 15:26). This is an eternal act of the FatheróGod proceeding from God. The Holy Spirit always was, just as the Father always was (Gen 1:2).

  • God the Son 
    He is the Redeemer (John 3:16)
    He is the only way to God (John 14:6)
    He is fully human (John 1:14)
    He is sinless (1 Pet 2:22)
    He died for our sins (1 Cor 15:3)
    He was raised from the dead (1 Cor 15:4)
    He is at the right hand of the Father interceding for us (Heb 1:3)
    He is coming back for those who accept Him as Lord (1 Thes 4:13-17)

  • God the Holy Spirit 
    He guides the believer into all truth (John 16:13)
    He inspired the writers of Scripture (2 Pet 1:20-21)
    He convicts the world of sin,  righteousness, and judgment (John 16:7-11)
    He in dwells the believer, empowers the believer for service, and enables the believer to speak with new tongues (Acts 2:1-4)

  • The Holy Scriptures 
    Scripture is the inspired word of God (2 Tim 3:16-17; 2 Pet 1:20-21)
    Nothing can be added to, or subtracted from Scripture (Rev 22:18-19)
    Scripture is the standard/measure by which we are to live to please God (Ps 119:9; 2 Tim 3:15)
    Scripture gives us assurance of the hope of eternal life (John 5:39; Rom 15:4)

  • Humankind  
    Humans were created in the image of God (Gen 1:26)
    When the first man sinned, manís fellowship with God was broken (Gen 3:8)
    From that moment on, God made provisions to renew that fellowship (Gen 3:21)
    Ultimate provisions for the renewal of that fellowship were fulfilled in Jesus Christ (Psalm 40:6-8; Heb 10:1-10)

  • Sacraments 
    The Lordís Supper (Matthew 26:26-29): This is an act of obedience to the Lordís command to commemorate His sacrificial death. The bread represents His broken body while the fruit of the vine represents His shed blood. We are commanded by the Lord to perform this ceremonial act until He returns, at which time He promises to do it anew with us in glory. Agape partakes in Holy Communion on the first Sunday of every month. 

    Water Baptism (Matt 28:19; Rom 6:3-4): This is an act of obedience to the Lordís command. It is an act of declaration, signifying oneís belief and trust in Christís death, burial, and resurrection for salvation. Baptism alone does not save, but a confession to the Lordship of Christ is first required.

Roles Of The Pastor and Members 
The Pastor is the leader/shepherd of the flock but not its lord (1 Pet 5:2-3). As the leader, the Pastor is expected by God to lead and to feed the flock (Jer 23:1-4). The Pastor plays a vital role in edifying and equipping the flock for service to the Great Shepherdóthe Lord (Ephe 4:11-12).

Each member is expected by God to follow the Pastor as his/her spiritual leader in support of the vision for the ministry (1 Pet 5:3) as the Pastor follows Christ (1 Cor 11:1). Each member is also expected to seek God to know his/her gifting and to be good stewards of every gift in the work of the ministry (1Cor 4:2; 1 Cor 12).
