what if churches worked together???

what if churches worked together rather than saw each other as competition? what if they came together to accomplish a common goal rather than live in a constant state of "reinventing the wheel"? what would be the results of this union in our communities?

i'm not saying that we all need to close our doors and become one large church. each church has its unique personality, each appeals to a various group of people, and each has strengths and weaknesses.

i'm just wondering what we could accomplish if we joined forces, brought our strengths and ideas to the table, and put our insecurities and egos aside? what if we became partners in something bigger than ourselves?

Hope, I have just started reading some of your posts and I thought I would comment to this.

I believe we would see a move of God if the churches would work together. So many churches do see each church as a competition. But what is the goal of the church. . . to bring souls to Christ not to line our self egos or our pockets. So many see it as a social station than a soul saving station. I believe that God is trying to bring that out to us to show us that we need to seek his face not his hand. To be a light to this lost world.

Praying for you and your family through your journey.
