KEY #3: GATHERING WITH OTHER CHRISTIANS!
Now that you are a Christian you are a member of a really big family that is called the Church.
It’s super important that now you gather with other members of the church family.
Think of it this way, the Church is like coals in a hot barbecue pit. If a coal is isolated, it grows cold, but when together with other coals, it burns hotter! (Acts 2:42-26; Hebrews 10:25; John 13:34-35; I Thess. 5:11; Phil. 2:4)
Your growth as a Christian will happen best when you are connected to other Christians, because we need each other!
The Bible says, “And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as in the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much more as you see the Day approaching.” (Hebrews 10:24-25).
Every Christian needs a local church were they gather regularly. It’s been calculated that there are over thirty commands in the Bible that are impossible to honor without being a part of a church family. It is our prayer that you make Rise your home church!
