God doesn’t simply intend to save individual souls, but to create a new humanity and community of relationships. Therefore, we are not simply to come to church to receive inspiration and information, but to engage in real intentional and authentic personal relationships.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” — Jesus in Matthew 28:19
Christ Covenant Church has many opportunities for individuals and families to be involved in relationships. Community Groups are the most strategic way for us to experience intimacy and fellowship in the Gospel of grace. Please see other links under the Redeem section of our website to learn more and get involved.
What does it mean to be an incarnational Church, or to live incarnationally as a Christian? Dwight Friesen of the Ekklesia blog gives us a helpful reminder of why we need relationships in the church:
“Incarnational living invites all Christ-followers to flesh out their uniqueness, encouraging the totality of their being to reflect or embody Christ. When people and their respective communities see their ‘being’ as inevitably making the invisible Christ visible through their lives, then every interaction, every act, every moment of stillness becomes a Christ moment. This explodes the singularity of mission; now life becomes mission in a holistic sense. Mission is inevitable when Christ is incarnated, but without incarnation mission looks a lot like busy religiosity.”
