The church that I go to might just as well be my home. The people I go to church with are more like family. Where else can I get this show of love?
~ A.J. Chilson
Romans 14:1 says this, ‘Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters.’ This means that Christians are to accept each other in spite of our differences. In fact, the Bible tells us that the world will know that we are Jesus’ disciples by the way we love one another. Unfortunately, many main stream denominations have forced churches to dispute which group is right or wrong. We know that there is plenty of good that comes from these churches but at The Body we do not have ties to any denomination so that our mission is not influenced by such disputes. We consider ourselves “denominationally neutral”.
The Body is a church where you can learn what the Bible says about sin, God’s answer to sin, God’s purpose for your life, and fellowship with those who have struggled in the same areas that you have. You will be encouraged to get involved with one of our many fellowship groups that meet weekly to discuss the how the Bible can help us live a life that is pleasing to God without locking ourselves away.
The Body is a church for anybody, not everybody. We realize that there are some who need a more strict teaching and others who may need a more flamboyant style of church. God has made His church like a body with many parts having many purposes and we encourage you to find out where you fit in.
We Believe our part of the Body of Christ is to serve anyone who comes to our church. We are a place for people who are tired and need a rest until God leads you elsewhere. We are a place for those who are not sure if organized religion is for them. We are a place for people who are serious about growing as a Christian but not sure where home will be. And of course we want to be that place that you make your church home, a place for you and your family to settle in and find your place to serve. But regardless of why God has led you here, while you are with us we will do our best to encourage, motivate, and love you.
Our main focus is to be a place where those who don’t have a relationship with Jesus or know Him but don’t like their previous experience with church, can be welcomed comfortably and genuinely.
We are a lot like you. Our membership is made up of folks who have had the same struggles that you have. We don’t hide our past and don’t think that we are better than anyone else. We just know that God has forgiven us and we want to share that same forgiveness and love.
Here at The Body you can come as you are and be yourself without being judged. We invite you to come see for yourself why The Body is a church for anybody, maybe even for you!
