Over and over during his time on earth, Jesus issued an invitation: “Follow me” – and only by this following could someone find truest and deepest life, even eternal life.
“Jesus said I am the way and the truth and the life.” John 14:6
And the parting mission Jesus gave each of his followers was to go and call others to follow him. Today the true church is more than just a brick-and-mortar institution. It’s the long line of all the people, the disciples, that trail back across time and distance to our leader, Jesus Christ.
And, it’s the great community of all of us – disciples of Jesus – who continue to embark on this trek together and who call others to come along with us.
Joining a church congregation is less about becoming a member and more about becoming an active disciple of Christ Jesus. It’s why, at Shandon, we invite you to join us on a path that is grounded in community, that is connected to the deep roots of Scripture and tradition, and that asks for your utmost commitment.
