“growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church. He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.”
(Ephesians 4:15, 16 NLT)

Many people feel that they do not need to fellowship in a church community setting with other believers because they can discover God by themselves in their own way at home. In the Bible Christ is referred to as the head of the body of His church. How can we develop a relationship with Christ whom we cannot see if we do not even make an effort to form relationships with the members of His body whom we can see? We connect to Christ growing healthy spiritually by developing the body connection within a community of believers.
