As the church, we are a community of people because of the Gospel. Jesus glued us together when he rescued us. We are also a community of people for the Gospel, which means we live to make his legacy and name famous.
In other words, we are a community by the Gospel and for the Gospel.
COM Groups (communities on mission) are how we live real life together. They give us a chance to model and image the Gospel with each other by reconciling differences, sacrificing for each other, and entering the lives of those around us. It also gives us a chance to image the Gospel to the culture around us by entering the fray as Jesus did and demonstrating God's love as we speak of God's love.
We're a people that are on a mission not our own. When we were rescued, we were given a greater commission than to suck air and die some day with tomorrow's garage sale items to show for our life. We have been commisioned by a King as missionaries in the most simple and beautiful way possible. Charles Spurgeon once said that "every Chrstian is either a missionary or an impostor." We agree.
