“For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, God’s building” (1 Corinthians 3:9).
To be a devoted follower Christ is to embrace the larger, diverse community found in congregational life. Faith is never a lone God-and-you affair but a kinship between Christ and us and us and one another. It is in the church of the Lord Jesus Christ alone where individuals from so many varying walks of life, who might not otherwise have met, are thrown together for a common mission. You can go alone and go fast or we can go together and go farther.
