Churches are called to live in unity for a cause larger than themselves, John 17:23, Romans 15:5, Eph. 4:3,13, Col 3:14. We are called to reach out to others and impact the region in which we live and serve, Luke 13:34, John 11:52, Acts 2:44, 46, 1 Cor. 1:2, Eph. 3:6. This means we can do more together than we can by ourselves.
