Church Is a Plural Word
Christianity is social.
We have been adopted by the Father, united to the Son, and filled with the Spirit. God has invited us into his life...into the dance of the Trinity. But it doesn't stop there.
We have also been reconciled to one another, united together as brothers and sisters, and called out to be a people for God. We are collectively called the church.
As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 2:4-5)
One of the ways we live this out at Sovereign Grace is by meeting together regularly in our homes. It's not a rule of faith...you won't find "Small Groups" in the bible. However, you will find a long list of "one another" commands. We go to small group because small groups are an opportunity to be what God has made us to be.
Church is a plural word.
We are making room for friends and members. There are new groups forming in Irvine, Orange, and Santa Ana this October. Consider this your invitation.
