Welcome to Marion Bible Fellowship
Marion Bible Fellowship in Marion, OH, is a Christian church with the purpose of introducing Jesus as Messiah and the only means to salvation. We seek to teach the Scriptures as they were taught and practiced by Jesus and His disciples long ago. We feel much has changed in the Christian church since that time. At Marion Bible Fellowship, we hope to return as close as possible to the original practice of the faith by using the entire Bible as the guide to the Christian life.

MIDWEEK AND SPECIAL EVENTS
The "What About...?" Series
"What about..?" answers questions of faith, questions of practice and gives clarity and direction to our lives, our witness and our walk with Messiah. Topics are chosen, a discussion leader assigned and the Scriptures are explored. Titled differently, this series could be called, "What's the Bible say about...?" Discussions are not explored by way of opinion, or tradition, but by examining the Word of God and finding answers that sit on a solid foundation. Explore this week's discussion by livestream, by the link below, or dig though the archives by following the link. Base your walk of faith on Scripture and find a closer walk with God.

About Us - How We are Familiar
So, how is Marion Bible Fellowship similar to other Christian fellowships? Many denominations teach that Jesus is the only way to find salvation and the means through which we receive forgiveness of sins and wrong doing in our lives. This is good, proper and of first importance, and we teach the same. Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father but through Me.” (NASB) It is not by our good deeds or even our obedience in following God's commandments that we are saved. Because we all sin regardless how hard we try, we are only saved through believing in Jesus as Savior and Master of our lives (our faith is in Jesus' goodness and payment for our wrongdoings, not our own goodness).
Marion Bible Fellowship it’s more than a church it’s a family. I have been a member of the church since the very first service I attended. I have learned more from this church then I have ever learned from any church that I’ve ever gone to and I feel so more spiritually fulfilled than I have ever felt in my entire life because of this church. You learn more about the Scriptures and about how to apply them to your daily lives than any churches has ever taught me.

About Us - How We are Unique
So, how is Marion Bible Fellowship unique? We specialize in our approach to Bible study for children, youth and adults. We are differentiated from many churches by the way we teach the Scriptures and by the emphasis we place on learning and living the Commandments of the Bible once someone believes in Jesus as savior.
In this way, Marion Bible Fellowship keeps the roots of the Christian faith planted firmly in His Word. Are you "grounded" in the faith? Are you certain what God expects of you as a believer in Messiah? At Marion Bible Fellowship we believe every part of the Bible is inspired and gives direction to our lives. This means that some things you will find at MBF will not be found in many churches: The keeping of Sabbath (a whole day of worship, rest, and family commanded by God of His people); The celebration of the Biblical Holidays (Passover, Unleavened Bread, Pentecost in the spring and Trumpets, The Day of Atonement and Tabernacles in the fall)—all strangely unfamiliar to Christians nowadays but faithfully practiced by early Jewish and Gentile followers of Messiah.
Some say our approach is unique, but it really shouldn't be: We read the Bible and do what it says without canceling or changing anything—especially God’s commandments. Why is that so strange? To us it seems simple and straightforward. In fact, it is the same approach to Scripture used by Jesus (Matt. 5:17-20), the Apostles (Rom. 7:12,14; 1 John 5:3), and the Early Church (Acts 17:11).
So, is the Old Testament merely "Old News?" Should we cut the New Testament away from the deep roots that seek to nourish and keep our faith well grounded? At Marion Bible Fellowship we believe the entire Bible is good news and good guidance for living a Christian life, not just the writings of the New Testament.
Nourish and strengthen your faith by learning to live as Jesus, the Apostles, and the Early Church lived. Sabbath, Passover, the feasts of the Bible, regular times of prayer, the study of the Bible with the original context in view, as well as fellowship with like-minded believers will all combine to add direction to your life of faith. This gives structure and a framework to living the Christian life and training our children in the way they should go.
We believe both the Old Testament and the New Testament work together seamlessly. Essentially, the Old Testament teaches us what God expects for us, and in the New Testament Jesus and the Apostles teach us how to do what God expects.
Come and see how the Hebrew roots of the Christian faith can make the Bible "come alive" for the first time. God has planted you in rich soil – as followers of Jesus of Nazareth, you have chosen a Jewish rabbi as your savior and teacher. Tap into the roots of your faith, and see how much you can really grow!
If you're searching for a congregation set on discipleship and serious study of the Word of God, then look no further. At Marion Bible Fellowship, discovering the Jewish roots of the faith, and studying the entirety of the Bible satisfies the hunger for "more" in the heart of a growing disciple of Christ. If understanding the Biblical context and growing spiritually together with a community of Christians that encourage one another lovingly in godly character in the pursuit of truth interests you, then you'll feel right at home.

Community Life at Marion Bible
Although our ministry starts with teaching every adult and youth all the way through the Bible once every six years, it certainly doesn’t end there. As mentioned, we gather as a congregation throughout the year to celebrate the biblical festivals. We pray and support one another. We enjoy vibrant times of group fellowship, and together we serve the Marion community through outreach ministry. We also support international missionaries in Israel and the Palestinian territory.
