You Belong: Spiritual Community, Pastor David Welch

Updated: Feb 13

February 6, 2022







Only ONE demographic subgroup did not report a decline in mental health in the past two years

– those who attend religious services weekly. (Gallup)



"Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. "

1 Corinthians 12:27 (NIV)



Big idea:

You were created with the need to belong to the body of Christ – You’ll never experience wholeness without being needed, connected, and belonging.


Spiritual Community

… is the experience of sharing in the life of Christ with others … and the practice of belonging to one another.



We Need Spiritual Community Because …


I. We NEED one another


"Now the body is not made up of one part but of many. "

1 Corinthians 12:14


"but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong"

1 Corinthians 1:27

"On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable"

1 Corinthians 12:22 (NIV)



II. We are CONNECTED to one another


"Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it."

1 Corinthians 12:27 (NIV)



III. We BELONG to one another

"… so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other."

Romans 12:5 (NLT)
