Key Verse:

That if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9 NIV

It's More Important than You Think!
By Pastor Jon Haakana

“And all who believed were together and had all things in common.” Acts 2:44 During the first five weeks of our new school year at Mount Olive, we have been celebrating being part of God’s Church. We love our church! But as we are discovering it is so much more than just getting together once a week, or participating in a program here or there. It’s more important than you think! We are a called community, and if we truly love our church we need to truly love one another—in community—in Christ!

We like to belong. We like being a part of something bigger than ourselves. God has wired humanity this way, and He has especially wired us, as believers in the Lord Jesus, to be in community together. This is, in a real sense, what it means to be a church. We exist in a community that is called together. That is the root meaning of the Greek word for church, ecclesia. It is the idea of being “called out” to gather and meet together. God has called us together into this community called Mount Olive.
