We believe that by our love for one another the world will know that we are Christ’s disciples (John 13:35). Yet isolation and independence are keeping us from showing that love. Experience Community exists to equip God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up (Eph. 4:12). This happens at every level, from marriage, to family, to small groups and the body of Christ as a whole.
The vision of Experience Community is that communities, whether husband and wife or entire neighborhoods, would experience unity, benefitting from the gifts of the individuals that meet the real needs of people in a tangible way while reflecting the love of Jesus Christ.
We do that by intentional living; taking every opportunity to become more interdependent and intimate in our relationships with one another. By authentic and transparent interactions, we will increase trust and open doors for healthier relationships that can mutually edify each other while showing the world that Christ lives in us.
Biblical community cannot be forced, one can only create opportunities to grow it. This is how we can help. Experience Community is available to disciple any couple or group to help brainstorm ideas to create opportunity to build community.
There are many ways to create opportunities to deepen community. We focus on five areas that allow the greatest level of integration: praying together, learning together (being in the word), fellowship (eating, playing and relaxing together), working together (serving others and each other), and sharing our lives (dreams, fears, resources and gifts) (Acts 2:42-47).
We don’t need more busyness in our lives, but we need to take advantage of the occasions that we already have to love and be loved.
By the way, how’s your neighbor doing? Could they use an encouraging word or deed?
