A highly dysfunctional church cannot serve God well - so what does a healthy church look like? It isn't so much about organizational structure, history, or even specific doctrine - it is about people. People bound together by Jesus, and fit together as God intends. We are called to actively engage in being the Body of Christ.
This is life, this is work - and it produces something wonderful: JOY!
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality. Romans 12:10-13
