“Spiritual friendships are needed by all people; are discovered through the immediate bond of the love of Jesus Christ; are created through shared faith, prayer, possessions, feelings, and decision-making; and will last forever.”
– Pastor Tim Keller
Through deepening our relationships we will sharpen each other, encourage each other, pray for each other and build each other up. We recognize that we cannot live as followers of Jesus without each other—in fact when we commit to each other in love we exemplify Jesus.
“I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be One as we are One.”
– John 17:22
Therefore: We will commit ourselves to Spiritual Friendships in a variety of forms and settings, in church and out, inviting Jesus into our experience. We will be an inter-generational and family-focused community reflecting God’s redemptive heart for us and for the world.
