Together Again

Episode 1 — How Big Is Your Circle?

The vision of the church as the body of Christ does not pertain only to one local church. The body of Christ is made up of many churches, and each part of Christ’s body has something unique to offer the rest. When we open ourselves up to learn from one another and work together in unity, we are truly better together.
