People are busy, schedules are filled, and there are now so many online options for “virtual church.” So you may wonder, if you can watch a service from home when it fits into your schedule, then is it really necessary to be part of a local church? In his letter to the Ephesians, the Apostle Paul conveys two huge truths. First, believers are united in Christ. It’s a truth that defines our position and describes our possessions as believers. Second, believers are stronger and more effective together. Our connection in a local church is our primary place to exercise spiritual gifts, find encouragement, grow spiritually, receive support, and engage in God’s kingdom. When believers experience true biblical community, it will enhance our personal walk with God and show why we are stronger together. Join us as we study God’s desire for Christians and the Church.
