koinonia - life together

Koinonia (fellowship, or life together) is perhaps the easiest as well as the hardest to describe in the church. 

As the church, we have fellowship and life together in our Savior Jesus Christ. Jesus shares His life with us in the church through the Word and the Sacraments. Gathered together in His name, we hear Him speak and preach His Word to us. Assembled around His supper, we receive His body and blood for our forgiveness and salvation. From this life together in Christ, the church expands outward to carry Jesus' life to the world.
