6 Pillars // Community
Christ-Centered Community stems from our life in Christ. We are called to live with Christ at the center of who we are, but not to do this on our own.

Christ-Centered Community is an inside-out approach to living out God’s commands from His word. When we focus on fellowship with God and each other, we can live out God’s Word in our life toward those who we already have relationships with outside the church walls.
