We are Called to be a Community (Ephesians 3:14-21)
Our central activity is to worship God. Discipleship enhances the worship of God. Community (Biblical Fellowship) is the greatest way to foster discipleship.
Guiding Principle: Our fellowship with each other is based on our fellowship with Christ.
I. How can we (Redeemer) work to practice biblical fellowship?
A. Maintain your fellowship with the family (don’t miss opportunities to be with the family).
B. Exercise your spiritual gifts to strengthen our church family.
C. Serve each other- even in the “smallest” ways.
D. “Break Bread” together.
E. Serve others, with each other.

14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. (ESV)
