For even as we have many members in one body, and all the members don’t have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.
(Romans 12:4-5)

Marty Berglund

Pastor Marty Berglund attended Crown College in Minnesota. After graduating in 1975, he became an interim pastor at the Minnetonka Community Church in his hometown in Minnesota.

From 1976 to 1980, Marty attended Dallas Theological Seminary where he earned a master’s in Theology.

As the founding pastor of Fellowship Alliance Chapel, Marty, with his wife Laurie, began the church in 1980 in their garage with a group of 17 people.

Marty is the author of three books: Seeking the Unseen God (2004), Choices of the Chosen: Lessons from Israel’s Shepherd King (2013, co-authored with Rev. Glenn Kantner), and Led to Lead: Faith and Leadership Lessons from the Life of Moses.

Marty and his wife, Laurie, live in Shamong, New Jersey.

Two verses that are among my favorites are found in 2 Corinthians 5:20, 21: “Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he [God] made him [Jesus] to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”

We are ambassadors for Christ, carrying the Good News that Jesus died for our sins.
