"Now you are the body of Christ, and individual members of it."

1 corinthians 12:27

Belonging to a local church is not like belonging to a country club or sports team.
It's more like belonging to a family.
Regardless of what our earthly families are like,
we who are in Christ
belong to God our Father and to one another as brothers and sisters.
That's not a metaphor.
God is our Father.
We are a family.
