  • 1 Peter 2:4-7
  • As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says:
    • "See, I lay a stone in Zion,
    • a chosen and precious cornerstone,
    • and the one who trusts in him
    • will never be put to shame.”

Community wall principles
  • The main thing: pressing down into Jesus and the reality of his crucifixion. Letting Jesus shine through us.
  • Everything is held together by the weight of pressing into deep truth AND lives.
  • “We” stones, not “Me” stones.
  • Interlocked.
  • Not about attending; about relationships.

If a stone is removed, the foundation will still hold.

  • Very specific.
an essential commitment
An Essential Commitment
  • To press into a clear support relationship within our fellowship. This should be done out of genuine desire for spiritual maturity, a commitment to personal holiness, a response to God’s grace in another, and the conviction that personal accountability is needed in order to progress and be safeguarded from deception.
