What is a Family of Churches?
Jesus • Family • Mission
The simplest answer to this is that a family of churches is a collection of autonomous churches who love each other and share in life & mission. In the same way that we look at individual believers and families and expect them to engage in biblical community, we come together as individual churches in community. The life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus has made a new community and a new family within the Kingdom of God. The connection made between people through the blood of Christ is stronger than connections made by birth and genetics. Through Christ, we are family, and we are better together.
