The DNA of Real Community

The DNA of Real Community

In this four part series, we studied the four devotions of the early church found in Acts 2:42. Instead of re-inventing the wheel, we seek to do church the way they did it at the beginning. We devote ourselves to the apostles’ teaching, the fellowship, the breaking of bread, and prayer through our Community Groups.

This first century practice of the early church was one of its four devotions. When we pray together as the early Christians did, we are able to see the miraculous power of Christ moving in our midst.

Pastor Gary Combs continues the series “The DNA of Real Community” with this sermon about the second “devotion” of the early church, “the fellowship.” The Greek word for fellowship is koinonia. This is more than just a get-together. This is about the common identity that believers share as members of Christ’s family.
