Four Reasons Community Is So Important

The Body of Christ is constantly learning, growing, and in need of some encouragement and each other. When we know a part of the Body is struggling, how can we help him/her by not just saying “hang in there”, “try harder”, or "I hope it gets better,” but actually doing something to help.

In order to be active in our commitment to belong to each other, we must understand that someone's struggle affects not just them alone, but the entire Body of Christ.

He wants to use them, their insecurities, their heartbreak, and traumatizing vacuum stories for His glory.
