And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.
— Acts 2:42-47

We will strive to spread the glory of God as we live our lives together under the Kingship of Jesus. Community is not an option; it is a biblical mandate! It is in community where we will preach the gospel to ourselves, to one another, and to our surrounding communities through word and deed. It is in community where we are able to speak and engage one another with grace as we follow Christ together. It is in the context of community where we will care and be cared for, serve and be served, know and be known, accept and be accepted, forgive and be forgiven, love and be loved. Life change happens best within the context of a gospel-centered community where grace abounds.

Building a Relational community of grace is...

  • actively participating in a community group at The Bridge

  • actively participating in a 3D group at The Bridge

  • exhibiting grace and forgiveness to those in your community

  • going directly to a brother or sister when you have an issue with them

  • actively discouraging gossiping, backbiting, and complaining

  • speaking truthfully in love to one another

  • modeling authenticity by being appropriately transparent with others
