Hello! Thank you for your interest in IFGF Church! We serve a Winner in Christ Jesus at IFGF Church by living the Word in our daily lives. We equip believers to triumphantly live the Word in the world and bear witness to God’s love and power through unity.
We live in a divided world. Disunity can be found in our homes, households, workplaces, local, state, and federal governments, and so on. The society in which we now live is extremely self-centered. It’s all about the individual in self. The importance of unity in any organization’s success cannot be overstated. We should work toward a common goal and advocate for a common cause. The church is a gathering of people who have been called together for a specific purpose. The Church isn’t made up of a lot of people who aren’t connected to each other. Ephesians 4:4 says, “We Church are all one body.” The Church must function as a team, working together to achieve God’s goals. The church exists to serve three purposes. Worship of God, the edification of the saints, and proclamation of the Gospel. And, in order to achieve all three of these goals, unity is essential.
When we stand united in our worship of God, God is glorified. Unity has tremendous power, and God promises to bless us if we stick together. The mission of the church is to strengthen the body of believers. We can reach out to unbelievers who are drawn to our selflessness while this body of believers remains united.
It not only allows us to help others grow, but it also allows others to help us grow. Concern for people reflects God’s concerns, thus glorifying him. This interest motivates us to assist in the building up of believers, not as a criticism, but as a sincere desire to assist them. Unbelievers seeking acceptance will be drawn in by genuine love and concern for others. The church’s unified message and good news to the world are that whoever believes and accepts Christ as their personal savior will have eternal life.
As a result, if the Church is to fulfill its purposes, unity in the Church is not only desirable but absolutely necessary. In John 17:21, it was the subject of Jesus’ prayer to the Father, “My prayer for all of them is that they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.”
