Our ownership to the life of the church flows out of our understanding of His church.
1 Timothy 3:14-15, Romans 2:11, James 2:8-9, Ephesians 2:19-22
“The Church is a family, not an orphanage. You see, the reality behind an orphanage is usually characterized by a couple of things. Usually you have one or two overworked staff trying to serve a bunch of underserved kids and we spend all of our time and all of our responsibility trying to depend on those individuals to take care of all of the work. There’s really no burden of responsibility for the orphans to maintain, but a family it’s all in. There’s this responsibility that each and every one of us have.” – Dahti Lewis, Lead Pastor at Blueprint Church in Atlanta, GA
