This week, we’ll continue exploring the four ways to cultivate a rich faith by diving into the biblical importance of connecting in community. As Christians, we are created to live in community so we can learn from and encourage each other and grow in our faith.

Keep reading to learn more about why we’re called to connect as Christ-followers!


Christ-centered community is vital for accountability and encouragement.

They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Acts 2:42

As Christians, we have been created to grow through community and relationships with others. Life is better together, and in community, we are known, loved, pursued, encouraged, and challenged to be more like Christ in all we do. Connecting with others provides accountability and encouragement for your journey of faith.
