At Kootenay Christian Fellowship we take Micah 6:8 seriously. It says, "He has told you, O man (church), what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”
There are three things that God asks of his people: To act justly, to love being kind, and to walk humbly..
Just think what a great world we would have if we all promoted justice. If we spoke up for the weak and protected the vulnerable. Add to that acts of kindness. Not kindness that is out of duty, but where a group of people actually loved doing kind things. Such a people we desire to be. And then lastly, what voice would we have if we were proud of our goodness. Would we not be just like the religious bigots everyone loves to hate. We desire to be a people that are willing to get our hands dirty, our knees bent, and our feet on the ground.
In this website you will find information and opportunities. But our most sincere prayer is that we will get to know you and you and us will get to know God. If we can assist you in any way, please email your concern to one of the people on our contact information page. We want to be a blessing to you. Come and share a day of worship with us. We meet every Sunday at 520 Falls Street in Nelson, BC.
There is free parking available on Sunday behind the building.

If God is all powerful, why is there suffering?
Suffering. There is no shortage of it. Starving babies in Africa, floods in Ontario, hurricanes in the Caribbean, planes colliding in mid-air, are just the tip of the suffering iceberg in the world. If God is all powerful, then why does He allow suffering? I have experienced divine intervention that protected me from untold suffering, yet I suffer every day with pain in my hands. We hear testimonies of where and when God’s power kept suffering from coming to their house. Yet just down the street, we can hear the story of horrific suffering visiting that family. Is God unfair? Some would conclude that God does not exist because of the existence of suffering. Actually, I believe just the opposite. Suffering suggests the existence of God and our need for Him in our lives.
