Christ - many members
We are a local body of Christ that is currently located in the home of our Shepard-Pastor in Kristiansand, Norway. We are connected to saints in different parts of the world and broadcast the teachings on our YouTube channel.
We are a local body, a member of the body of Christ, and sent to our brethren. We are sent to the ones in prison, who lack food and water, who are blind and deaf, who need healing, among His sons and daughters. We are called to cause a shift. We are called to be a pattern. This is why our vision is:
“For whom he did foreknow he also predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.” (Rom. 8:29-30).
Our Father works together with his people to bring about the necessary changes. “Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?” (Amos 3:3). We, therefore, have a resolve to be conformed to the image of the one who gave his life for us. Through sound teaching, personal vision, study, circumstances, fellowship, worship, principles, obedience, and submission to His Word, we renew our mind day by day, moment by moment (Rom. 12:2). We count it all joy when we face trials because we know it is necessary for growth (Jam. 1:2-4). We are changing from the inside out. His truth is setting us free as we grow and mature.
“So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”” (John 8:31-32)
And we do it all because He loved us first, therefore we are. We are not meant to be disconnected from one another as local bodies, but we are all meant to be as one mind, same love, and united in spirit, intent on one purpose (Phil. 2:2).
