The Called Together Ones
Community is an essential part of the church. A church cannot have true community unless it is local, meaning it contains a real group of people who occupy a specific place together in the world. Jesus said that the quality of our love for each other is our primary witness to unbelievers that we belong to Him. What is it that unites the church? It’s not family, ethnicity, or political persuasion. It is Christ. We share a deep gratitude for His saving grace. We share a profound adoration of Him, and we share a compelling passion to see people come to Jesus.
