Services: Sundays 10:30am
We seek to be a church that is marked by worship to God, spiritual growth through the Word, love for each other, and sharing of the Good News to the lost. It must all begin with being a worshipping church. The Apostle Paul compares the church to the Body (of Christ) with Jesus Christ being the Head (Ephesians 1:22-23; 5:23; Colossians 1:18). It is not surprising then that when the church stops being a place of worship and devotion to the Lord Jesus that it becomes a place of idolatry.
Spiritual growth is another hallmark of the true church. When the Lord Jesus gave the Great Commission, He told His Disciples to make disciples and to teach them "to observe all that [He] commanded" (Matthew 28:18-20). Therefore, we strive to continually devote ourselves to the apostles' doctrine (Acts 2:42). A church that is no longer committed to the Written Word is also no longer a church of the Incarnate Word (the Lord Jesus) who gave us that Written Word.
These aspects of the church are not independent of each other. Being a worshipping church will naturally lead to being a growing church. Being a worshipping and a learning church will lead to a loving church. In other words, the church cannot be loving without being a worshipping and learning church. The command of the Lord Jesus to us is to love one another as He has loved us (John 13:34). In Acts 2:42, the word in Greek for fellowship is "koinonia" from which we get the name of our church. It refers to Christian communion, with God and with fellow believers. It has elements of both sharing and connectedness which is what we seek to have at KBC.
As we become a church that is worshipping her Lord, sitting at His feet (in a manner of speaking), to learn and obey Him in loving within and without, we cannot help but to obey Him in the Great Commission by making disciples and evangelizing the lost. Lack of interest in evangelism betrays an attitude of selfishness and lack of devotion to our Lord and even an lack of gratitude for His sacrifice.
- What is at the heart of the Christian faith?
- What are the dynamics of a personal relationship with Christ?
- What is God’s overall plan for the church?
- What does it mean to live as a believer in the Body of Christ?
- How is a new believer discipled and trained in the ministry?
Join us this Sunday at 10:30AM, as we continue through this beautiful epistle.
