The Need to Belong

Humans have a deep need to belong.

“Even when people come to Christ and fill their need to belong to God, they still need to belong to the community of God’s people.” Victory Over the Darkness by Neil T. Anderson

Koinonia – the word used to describe Christian fellowship in the New Testament – is something the church must provide, or the church will lose its people.

We are the church. Koinonia is our responsibility. It’s a necessity and a need, not an option. Reach out in love. Welcome others warmly. Let God show people who He is through you.

“If your church doesn’t provide opportunities for legitimate Christian fellowship for its members, they will seek it someplace else.” Victory Over the Darkness by Neil T. Anderson
