Church: Made for More
Today, when we say the word “church” it conjures up a lot of different images and ideas in peoples’ minds: a close-minded religious group, a comfortable gathering of like-minded believers, a building. There are countless different definitions, some positive, others negative, but very few could be called “inspiring.” But what if all of these definitions miss the mark?
What we find, when we look at the earliest depiction of the church, is a powerful, counter-cultural, awe-inspiring community of people who literally “turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6). In the book of Acts we are invited to once more see what it means to be the church as we are invited to be a part of a bigger story, become members of a larger community who are called to a greater mission, because we have been given a better life. Join us as we learn what it means to define “church” in the way it was always meant to be understood.
