Value #2: “AUTHENTIC COMMUNITY is required for sustained Spiritual Growth”

“Authentic Community” means I have a transparent relationship with a group of people.

1. John 13:34-35
Love = Command

What is the S.H.A.P.E. of love?
Sacrifice
Humility
Acceptance
Proximity
Encouragement

2. Acts 2:42-47
What do Christ-following communities DO with their time?

Who in this church family can I honestly say I am “devoted” to?

3. Hebrews 10:24-25
Other people are part of my community.

What are the actual consequences when one person drifts away from the community?

John 13:34-35

34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. 35 By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” (ESV)

Acts 2:42-47

42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. 43 And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. 44 And all who believed were together and had all things in common. 45 And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. 46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved. (ESV)

Hebrews 10:24-25

24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. (ESV)

Heaven & Hell

As mortal human beings, we are irresistibly curious about life after death. In addition, most everyone knows that the Bible is not silent on this matter. But what does it really say?

  • Is Heaven beyond imagination?
  • Is there a default destination?
  • Can people in Heaven see me now?
  • Will I remember life before I died?
  • Will I recognize people I know?
  • Are we designed for life in the clouds, or life on earth?
  • Why is Heaven not for religious people?
  • Hell sounds like more fun. How terrible can it really be?
