Few are willing to do the hard work of actually being the church.

You know, an active community of believers who encourage and minister to each other …

Both when they gather together and throughout their daily lives.

Most, instead, are content to pay others to do “church” for them …

From an elevated podium and stage each Sunday morning.

Be exceptional!

Dare to be the church as the New Testament actually shows it …

And leave that other stuff behind.
