The Preservation Community is a community where we grow in relationship with our Lord and Savior as we grow in fellowship with each other. When we think of fellowship we think of the word “koinonia” is a Greek word that occurs several times in the Bible. Koinonia’s primary meaning is “fellowship, sharing in common, communion.”
In Acts 2:42, “They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.”
For us Christian fellowship is a key aspect of the Christian life. Believers in Christ are to come together in love, faith, and encouragement. That is the essence of “koinonia.”
What We Do
The Preservation Community will create opportunities for each of us to develop relationships that will help keep us connected to the church and with each other. The Preservation Community will create opportunities for each of us to meet others who share similar thoughts, ideas, feelings, and passions, but it will be more than just that. God has a design for His church to be a place where there is a fellowship of different and differences among its people: a mixture of people from all over the spectrum (men and women, rich and poor, different races and ethnicities to be one big family of believers. We bring what we share in common and what we share differently together to worship and to encourage each other in Christ.
