What does it mean to live in Christian community? First and foremost, it’s seriously messy spirituality. In the midst of discipleship formation: prayer, worship, forgiveness, service, etc., community is about focused living on both corporate and personal faith. And while it is personal, it’s not—in any way—private! We’re learning how to live with a consistent Kingdom mindset through communion with God and connection with others… and this is where real community happens.
