In my dear church, in spite of human imperfection, we focus on what we have in common: being children of God through faith in Jesus Christ and having the grace of God the Father. We strive to love one another as the real people we are, not as unrealistically perfect people. I can live out the scripture that Jesus speaks of in the book of Mark: “Here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.” For me, these brother and sister relationships in Christ will continue throughout eternity. Another scripture I love within the International Church of Christ is one that Jesus mentions in John 13:34-35: “As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” I can feel this scripture come to life when fellow believers are by my side amidst hardship. When I feel hard pressed by life’s circumstances and my faith is close to shattering, my friends are there with me. This is how I know Christ’s body is real and tangible, though God may seem so distant.

I love my church, I really, really do!

I am a member of the Turning Point Church, part of the Los Angeles Church of Christ and the International Churches of Christ and formerly known as the AMS ministry. I was baptized March 29, 1998 in the AMS Ministry in Hollywood, California.  Funny enough I had just moved back from London where I had begun seeking God, but God knew where I would grow.

My name is Ben Purcell and I am a disciple in the Seattle Church of Christ, part of the International Churches of Christ. I became a disciple last year, as a freshman at Seattle Pacific University. As a first-year college student I was struggling to find God in Seattle, in friendships, and on my ‘Christian’ college campus. The churches I visited didn’t seem to care about God very much, and neither did my friends. In my confusions I started praying to God, asking to find not just a church, but a community. I had a lot of questions about baptism, discipleship, and the Bible, but no one seemed to have answers for me, so I prayed that God would give me answers to those questions too. Midway through my first quarter, two disciples, Brian Fisher and Joey Lyon, randomly reached out to me while I was reading on campus. Three months, and many Bible studies later, I decided to give my life to Christ and was baptized.
