We regularly meet together for fellowship to spend time with each other, pray and encourage one another and meet with Jesus.
The Bible encourages us to meet often, that we may encourage, build up, feed and nurture the people of God.
“Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, 45 and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need. So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved”.
Acts 2:44-47 (NKJV)
“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching”.
Hebrews 10:25 (NKJV)
It is said that ‘No man is an island’ and we are foolish to think we can go it alone, we need each other. Most of the Apostle Paul’s letters were addressed to churches in the New Testament, designed to be read aloud to the various fellowships. Paul uses the analogy of the body as the church in 1 Corinthians 12. We are all members of that body contributing some integral part to the overall function, life and health of the church.
We see that the church has been gifted with practical, spiritual and ministerial gifts. To encourage, build up and bless the body. That’s why we meet regularly, to encourage, share each other’s burdens, bless and of course worship the God of our salvation.
