Gospel and mission are for the individual but they are not individualistic. The church is not just a collection of individuals but is described by the Bible as a family and a body. The church is organic and united. It is not a club or a hobby but a people who work together amid their diverse backgrounds for one common, all-encompassing purpose – to make much of God. We believe that the Christian life is one intended to occur in a community rather than in isolation. We bear one another’s burdens, we pray for one another, we help one another, and we partner in the great cause of helping others come to know Jesus Christ.
