“When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place” (Acts 2:1).
A group gathered all together in one place does not mean they are unified. Sporting events and political rallies, for instance, are made up of people holding different opinions. The community of faith, however, comprised of individual believers from varied walks of life and a diversity of experiences, are unified by the distinctive work of the Holy Spirit, who has providentially gathered them together for the primary task of fulfilling the Great Commission mandate given to the church. We have been all brought together that we might all go forth.
