"As you come to Him, the living stone, rejected by men, but chosen and precious in God’s sight, you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ." (1 Peter 2:4,5.)
Our church is not the building we are all working together to build, but the ecclesia, the people. Built upon the rock of faith in Christ, our church is built of many faithful people, like living stones, who come together in faith and loving communion with God and with each other. This page is dedicated to our personal stories—our spiritual journeys, what we find precious here, and why we are committed to Raising the Cross.
We hope to see your story here in the future! Please submit your draft (<700 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
