Welcome home! Your church ought to feel like home. We are part of God's family by faith. We are God's own children. And, just like a real family, we do not always get along; but we should. We are graciously received and still being cleansed of our sinfulness and healed from our brokenness. The church is a hospital for sinners. You are welcome to tag along. By the precious grace of God we are better than we deserve and striving to get better all the time by clinging to the hope of the gospel. The gospel changes everything!
I have heard some say that they will never join a church because they are all full of hypocrites. I answer, one more won't hurt. Not one of us have arrived, but we have been received and welcomed by the grace of God. God isn't finished with us yet! As we look to Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, we grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ and begin to bear fruit for the kingdom of God. We are not a perfect fellowship, but the Spirit of God dwells in us and is working on us. Just wait until you see the finished product! We are His workmanship.
I would love to include you in our fellowship and have you grow with us in grace, knowledge, service and fellowship. We are a work in progress, but we are God's work. It will be glorious!
