Local Worshipping Household

Muscle Man Cartoon CharacterEach local worshipping community is a unique part of Jesus Christ's community. When I look in the mirror, I see an elderly balding male. While my appearance is important to me, it is only one part of who I am. Scratch the surface and a multifaceted individual with all his likes, dislikes, and idiosyncrasies appears. You are the same too. In the same way, the individual Christian community is also unique.✞

Incarnate Extension of Christ

Kate WillardJesus' community is an extension of the incarnation of Christ himself. She, the household, (for the word used to describe "church" is feminine), is a conglomerate, a Me with her own personality like any other body! She may have the characteristics of a jolly, middle-aged lady or even a starchy spinster with her head in a book. In that way, the make up of each and every congregation is different.✞
