CELEBRATING THE 500TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE REFORMATION
God’s community is not bound by place or time. Jesus prayed for all believers and for their oneness. Christians are not bound by natonal or state borders. We are not limited to continents or by oceans. God’s community is global, and 2017–2018 is an opportunity to celebrate unity in the body of Christ among all Christians.
