The Role of Community

1. The church should be our oasis form the week, where we look forward to seeing other believers face to face (1 Thess. 3:5,7, Heb 10:25)

2. Our primary characteristic should be love (1 Thess, Heb 13:1, 1 John 4:7 )

3.No matter how much or how little you know about God, that is a reason to be thankful.
(1 Thess 9,10)

4. We must strive to be a mature body of believers
A. Looking at our relationship with God (1 John 1:9)
B. Looking at our relationship with others in the church (Matt 5:23,24)
C. Looking internally at ourselves (1 Cor 11:28)
