Belong to God's family
The Bible teaches that each follower of Jesus plays a part in helping God's church to grow, thrive, and flourish (Ephesians 4. 1 Corinthians 12). God has made each one of us part of His Body and we have a role to fulfill. We grow and mature as we commit to belonging to one another in deep and meaningful relationships. Superficial relationships are not something God encourages us to have, but instead, Christ-centered relationships that help to build life, honor, healing, wholeness, and spiritual maturity in our lives that make us more like Jesus. Being part of a church family is not only the way that God designed for us to grow in life, it is the way God designed for us to thrive in life.
