Scripture Emphasis:

Romans 12:9-10 “Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil, cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.”


The foundation of a vibrant church must be Bible based, Christ centered and Grace driven.  After these, there are several other pieces to the puzzle that must be present for a church to be alive and well.  They all come from the “one another’s” in the New Testament.

What does a church family look like?  ….
