Our Mission is Serving Churches!

Authentic Community

How are you doing in living out the “one another” commands? This resource is designed to help you discover how to live an authentic Christian life. God seeks to form your character and to transform your life. The place for this to happen is in fellowship with others. The studies in this curriculum have been created for learning and growth in dialog with others — in community. In fact, the full purpose and blessing of transformation cannot take place outside of the gathering of God’s people. That is why we encourage you to use these studies in your church — applying the lessons to the real-life dynamics of your fellowship. The author’s goal is to: define what God’s Word says about One Another community, discover how these commands apply to your Christian fellowship, describe what it would look like to practice biblical community, discuss what you can do to embody these practices, and discern how God is speaking through His Word and Spirit.
