Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

no other purpose

"He works on us in all sorts of ways.
But above all,
He works on us through each other.
Men are mirrors,
or ‘carriers’ of Christ to other men.
But usually it is those who know Him
that bring Him to others.
That is why the Church,
the whole body of Christians
showing Him to one another,
is so important….
The Church exists for nothing else
but to draw men into Christ,
to make them little Christs.
If they are not doing that,
all the cathedrals, clergy, missions, sermons,
even the Bible itself,
are simply a waste of time.
God became Man for no other purpose.
It is even doubtful, you know,
whether the whole universe was created
for any other purpose."
- C.S. Lewis
