'Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching.'
Cozy house church or grand medieval cathedral. Cutting edge storefront or traditional venue with pew after polished pew. Simple thatched roof hut. Contemporary megachurch. Or outdoor's magnificent starlit arena.
The venue's not important. It's all about the worship of our Redeemer, Jesus Christ. And a heartfelt, sincere love for each other that weaves us together tight. A miraculous creation these bonds are, beautifully knit with strands of deeply craved grace and mercy undeserved.
This is His sacred community. This is where He makes His home.
