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

living and working together

“In his enthusiasm,
the evangelist often finds it difficult
seriously to imagine that anyone
could be called not to be an evangelist.
The man of vision and imagination
finds it difficult to see the value
of those who do no more
than plod on faithfully along a well-tried road.
The man whose concern is in
personal dealing with people
and leading them to understand God better
finds it difficult to be patient
with the theologian or the Christian philosopher
whose work is in the quiet of a book-lined study.
Yet the truth is that the wholeness
which God is working to achieve
is never complete in an individual,
but through individuals living together as one body,
each supplying the deficiencies of the others.”
- J. B. Phillip
