Something to ponder

"I think too many churches have worked on the model of “behave, believe, belong.” For example, if one behaves the proper way and believes proper doctrine, then he or she can belong to the church. Rather, we should foster communities where you can belong, surrounded by Christians learning about the love of Christ. Then through belonging, one believes. And only after belief in the risen Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit will transformation happen or behavior change. Thus, Belong, Believe, Behave." ~ Nathan Albert
