Every church is unique, just as every individual is unique, every marriage is unique, and every family is unique. There is no doubt that all churches should share some common goals and doctrines and practices, and these commonalities unite us as one body of Christ. But if the last 2000 years are any indication, the church has flourished in a variety of times and places and in a variety of ways that require it to fit the unique nature of a specific time and place. I believe that here at South Run Baptist Church God desires to use our uniqueness for His glory. As we dig into Ephesians chapter 4, let us consider both what is common to all churches and what is our unique calling here at 8712 Selger Drive.
