Being a Christian is not about religion, rules or empty rituals –it’s about having a growing, personal relationship with God, through Jesus, that changes the way we live our lives.

Simply that we do a better job of living the life God wants for us when we do it with the support and encouragement of other Christians. This is called “fellowship,” and it’s a key ingredient to our success in following God.
