Church is a community of people who share their faith, hope and love of Jesus! The Bible uses a number of pictures to describe what church is like:
• A family We are all brothers and sisters in God’s family.
• A body An organic system of people who work together.
• The bride of Christ Jesus has a special love, devotion and care for the church.

The Difference Church Makes

Church makes a big difference in our lives in the following ways:

• Connects us with God.
• Connects us with other people who have similar spiritual worldview.
• Gives us a new spiritual family.
• Provides us with a spiritual home.
• Gives us the opportunity to work together with other people using the spiritual gifts that the Holy Spirit has given you.

The Way the Bible Describes God’s People

The Bible beautifully describes the vision that Jesus has for His church. It consists of people who:
• Believe that Jesus is the Son of God who saves people from sin and death. 1 John 5:1-13
• Trust in Jesus in this life and throughout eternity. Proverbs 3:5-6
• Make the Bible the foundation of their worldview and the way they live. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
• Love God and love the people around them. Ma􏰀hew 22:34-40
• Keep God’s commandments. John 14:15, Revelation 12:17
• Treasure and share the story of Jesus as found in the Bible. Revelation 12:17
