The Elders have had “The body of believers” on their hearts for a long time now, and are praying for a pastoral care ministry leader to step forward.
Ephesians 4:16 NIV From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
A healthy body, functioning in harmony, also "makes the body grow." Spiritually speaking, when the members of the body of Christ work together in unity, as we should, the church "builds itself up in love." It attracts others to the gospel of Christ, and those people are added to the family of God (Acts 2:47). A church known for speaking the truth in love will be known as a healthy church, a healthy body. Those in the body all function, and function together to accomplish the tasks of the church (Acts 2:42–47).
We are all called to love our neighbour (Physically and Spiritually) and work together to grow the body of believers.
