" A MINISTRY OF FAITH THAT BELIEVES IN MAKING DISCIPLES THAT ARE COMMITTED TO CHRIST AND ONE ANOTHER. "
September 23 - The Eternal Fatherhood of God
Let’s take a closer look at the relationship of the Father to His children: “For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named” (Ephesians 3:14–15).
The J. B. Phillips translation of verse 15 reads, “From whom all fatherhood, earthly or heavenly, derives its name.” This verse contains a tremendous revelation—that the fatherhood of God is eternal, named after the fatherhood of God in heaven and deriving its sanctity and authority from being a projection on earth of the divine, eternal fatherhood of God in heaven.
Before creation ever took place, God was already a Father—the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. This relationship of fatherhood and sonship within the Godhead is eternal. Before creation was brought into being, God was eternally a Father and Christ was eternally His Son. Every fatherhood in creation is named after the eternal fatherhood of God.
In a familiar verse from the gospel of John, Jesus said, “In My Father’s house are many mansions” (John 14:2). This verse reveals the fact that God is a Father, and He has a house. In Scripture, however, the word house is never used primarily to indicate a physical, material building. Rather, it is always used of a family and the building they occupy. When Jesus said, “In My Father’s house,” He was talking about God’s heavenly family. God is eternally a Father, and family life has its origin in eternity in the father/son relationship within the Godhead.
Thank You, Father, that I am Your child. I proclaim that the fatherhood of God is eternal, and I am part of God’s heavenly family. I have received the Spirit of sonship, and by Him, I cry, “Abba, Father.” Amen.

The History of CGMF.
CGMF began as ministry almost seven years ago. With three basic goals in mind. One, to help train disciples locally, and to encourage the establishment of bible neighborhood fellowships within the church in an interdenominational fashion. Two, provide for much needed assistance for those without medical insurance. Finally, to establish a network of attorneys to give legal guidance to those without the ability to afford one when necessary.
These basic three goals saw the establishment of CGMF Inc.. Since then CGMF has grown and expanded throughout the state of Nebraska. To facilitate this growth CGMF's main office has now moved to Omaha, Nebraska in its efforts to better handle the fluid changes within the ministry itself.
CGMF has 22 neighborhood fellowship groups located throughout the state of Nebraska. Eight of which are unique and independent, whom are associated with CGMF, but are not under its authority or oversight. All the CGMF affiliated groups and associated partners serve in training, teaching and establishing disciples for Christ. With a specially designed teaching program of rotational classes, including special events. All of which have been developed to equip each and every believer in their walk of faith.
Reverend Patrick Vossen is our founder and president of CGMF Inc.. Rev. Vossen has ministered in various locales and holds license and ordination with FGRMC, as well other ministerial associations. He also serves as a Bishop on the Council of Elders of FGRMC, and is the President of Focus Bible College.
