Being connected to one another isn't simply a nice way to live or a built-in support structure in case of difficulty. Connection to the faith community is one of the key aspects of our spiritual formation journey. We are always being formed—intentionally or unintentionally. Connection takes many forms, but is a vital aspect of the transformation process.
We are created to worship. However, much of the fallen world stands in the way of that worship, and it's only through Jesus that we can truly engage the eternal. Worship orients our lives back to what is true.
