The church is the body of Christ. As such, we are committed to Christ (Romans 10:9) and one another (Hebrews 10:24-25). Ephesians 5:18- 21). Under the chief shepherd, Jesus, the leaders of the church cast vision, equip believers for ministry, and lead the faith family to provide accountability in lifestyle (James 5:19-20) & doctrine (Acts 17:11; Hebrews 13:17). Together as the church, we live on mission (Acts 2:42-43) and exercise generosity (Acts 2:44-47).
