Our identity in Jesus is intrinsically corporate.
To become a Christian is to be united with the body of Christ, a union we embrace and express through covenant membership in our local church. The church isn’t a religious support group. It’s not a result of our sins and weaknesses. It’s a result of our identity in Christ. It’s the context God ordained for enjoying a growing relationship with him because it’s only through relationship with other Christians that we’re able to do the things that enable us to enjoy a growing relationship with him – treasure Christ, pursue authentic community, and love our neighbors. There is no category in Scripture for following Jesus and not being an active, faithful member of a local church.
When you become a member at KingsWay, you assume a significant measure of spiritual responsibility for every other member of our church. These spiritual responsibilities are clearly laid out in our church covenant. In a church our size, however, it’s difficult to walk out these responsibilities in the same way with every other member. For that reason, we’ve established something called Community Groups.
Community Groups are small groups of 8-10 adults who help one another follow Jesus in every area of life. They become the primary people with whom we treasure Christ, pursue authentic community, and love our neighbors. It's a safe place to be real about our failures, honest about our strengths, and learn to follow Jesus in the middle of it all. This is the basic structure of life at KingsWay.
To get involved, search the list below to find a Community Group near you. Then contact the group leader to let them know you're interested in visiting. Any one of them would love to answer questions about our church and help you get connected.
