What Unites Us?

We are the body of Christ — diverse in gifting, diverse in our contexts and diverse in service — but we are united by our commitment to the Lordship of Christ and His mission. When we collaborate and work together, we become a fuller expression of the body of Christ better able to accomplish the Jesus mission.
