There’s nothing in all the world like the local church. There’s joy. There’s friendship. There’s fellowship and life. People are being born again. People are testifying publicly through baptism. People are learning to love and know God.
There are wise elderly mentors. There are children. There are families.
There is love and giving. We rejoice to serve each other food and coffee. We look out for each other and care for each other’s needs.
We prod each other toward what is good and godly. We provoke each other to love God and do good.
We remind each other, time after time, of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
There is nothing—nothing—in all the world like the local church.
