You were made for relationship with God, but you weren’t made to do it alone—we need Jesus AND His Church! Church isn’t just where we go on Sundays; it is a group of believers following Jesus and living life together. It is through the church that we can fully be who God created us to be and see God accomplish His purposes on the earth.
