First UMC of Laurel
Being One In The Spirit
Being one in the Spirit is what we are called to be as the church - the Body of Christ. Unity is important. We don’t have to be identical - but we should be unified. Denominations and division in local churches do little to unite us. We need to find ways to unify our local churches and to work together with other Christian denominations.
