Chestnut Ridge Church
Why We...—Part 3
Many people have given in to the notion that church is no longer an important part of American society. Some view it as irrelevant. Others presume the church is out of touch with the modern world. Jesus says otherwise. By contrast, the Bible proclaims that the church is the hope of the world—it will prevail even when everything else fails. Throughout the series, we’ll explore what it means to be a part of the spiritual family, and how we can continue to overcome those misconceptions. Let’s discover how we can be the church by showing love, kindness, and grace through actions in faith.

Why We...—Part 3
[Tim Haring]
Problem | We don't see the value of being connected to other believers
Solution | Get connected—life change takes place best within community
A fully participating member of the church involves four things:
• Serving
• Giving
• Connecting
• Inviting

Being part of a smaller community of believers will help you stay properly positioned spiritually
