Being Church 1: God’s People on Mission

Start Date: Jan 30, 2019

The essence of the church is to be a spiritual family cultivating Christlikeness and serving others, so that the world can see and experience who Jesus is and join the family. This definition of church doesn’t always look like many churches today. For that reason “Being Church 1” takes a look at the DNA of the church in the New Testament. In this 5-week study, we will cover such things as the mission of God’s people through history, the call to discipleship and following Jesus, and how we grow and mature spiritually in community.
