The Problem

 (1) Church has become something we GO TO
         instead of something we ARE
                       

 (2) We think of Christianity as a 
          PRIVATE RELATIONSHIP
                        
  
 (3) We have nowhere to live out the 
         ONE ANOTHERS of Scripture.

              

Two Passages
    Hebrews 10:24-25    James 5:19-20    (Galatians 6:1    Proverbs 14:12  &
    2 Peter 2:21-22    Galatians 5:19-21    1 John 1:9    Proverbs 10:12
    1 Corinthians 5:9-13)

             

                
The Principles

 Three Things We All Need
 A place where we are . . .

  (1)  Genuinely KNOWN
                

  (2)  Lovingly SUPPORTED
                   

  (3)  Honestly CHALLENGED

           

               
 Here’s Why . . .

  (1)  Anonymity BREEDS SIN
           John 3:19-21    Ephesians 5:8-9

 

  (2)  Some things are too big to FACE ALONE
            Galatians 6:2-5

 

  (3)  Confession is not just for CATHOLICS
            James 5:16    1 John 1:9    Proverbs 28:13    Judges 10:9-16
