Our Connections in Christ’s Body on Earth
Every believer in Jesus Christ needs to be connected with other believers in order to fulfill the plans that God has for us. This starts with a connection to a local church or fellowship, made up of people with whom you meet regularly for worship, prayer and study.
Then it reaches out (usually through your local group) to a larger regional, churches or fellowships.
The more knowledge you have about the group or groups to which you are connected, the better you can serve the Lord in partnership with them. The following three areas of knowledge are important.
1. According to Hebrews 10:25, what should Christians not do?
2. What is the name of the church in which you attend?
3. Is this church or fellowship connected to a larger Christian organization or network that includes churches or fellowships in other areas?
What is the name of the organization your church is affiliated with?
4. In what way is this organization similar to other Christian organizations or denominations?
5. What are the benefits of individual Christians being connected with other Christians in an organized team of believers worshipping and working together?
