Prior to the arrival of Jesus, God provided rules for following Him we commonly know as the 10 commandments. Christian and non-Christian alike know most of them. They are found in Exodus 20.
- You shall have no other gods before me.
- You shall not make for yourself an idol.
- You shall not take the name of God in vain.
- Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.
- Honor your father and your mother.
- You shall not murder.
- You shall not commit adultery.
- You shall not steal.
- You shall not lie.
- You shall not covet.
Quite a lot to live up to! Jesus bound the commandments together in an easy to understand way in Matthew 22:37-40. The disciples were confused and asked Him which commandment is the greatest. His reply beautifully encapsulates the entire Law.
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Campfire Fellowship seeks to live out Jesus’ words by ministering to lonely Christians in campgrounds across America. We know it can be lonely traveling. We hope to build a community that will reach out and support one another across the digital miles.
Campfire Fellowship wants to proclaim the Gospel of Christ to those who may not know about Him.

…that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,…
