The Church as Tribe (John 17:15-23)

There are many ways to describe the church. 'Tribe' means that we are close, like a family. It says that we are in this together and we have a common task.

The Church as a Safe Haven (Matthew 16:13-20)

Ekklesia comes from two root words, ek ('out of') and kaleo ('to call'). It literally means, "The ones called out." Jesus adapts a civil term for us in His vision for humanity. We are to be called out from the violence, segregation, and evil of this world into the love, compassion, and grace.

The Church as Intersection (John 4:7-42)

Worship is an intimate, supernatural, and ongoing reunion with the heavenly Father who created us.
