A key part of the Christian life is having relationships with other believers. God calls individual Christians to participate in communion with Him and with His people. When Jesus saves us, He saves us into something bigger than ourselves—we receive the privilege of becoming members of His body. By nature of our faith-union with Christ we are also united to one another as Christ’s body. Through the body we are able to both personally grow, as well as help others grow up into maturity in Christ (Eph. 4:15–16).

So, when you think about getting connected at New Bethel, think about getting connected to the people of New Bethel and surrounding areas. This doesn’t mean that you’ll know everyone who is a member or attendee at our church, but it does mean prioritizing building relationships with people and investing in the already-established relationships that you may have at church.
