LOVE ONE ANOTHER
The second great commandment that Jesus gave was to love our neighbor as ourselves (Matthew 22:39). The law is summed up by loving God and loving neighbor. More specifically, Jesus tells Christians to love one another (John 13:31-35). This is how the world will know that we are followers of Christ. In addition to loving one another, we are also called to bear with (Galatians 6:2), encourage (1 Thessalonians 5:11), stir up (Hebrews 10:24), exhort (Hebrews 3:13), forgive (Colossians 3:13), be hospitable to (1 Peter 4:9), be kind to (Ephesians 4:32), serve (1 Peter 4:10), submit to (Ephesians 5:21), and teach (Colossians 3:16) one another.
At University Presbyterian Church, we pursue relationships with each other through community groups, men's and women's Bible studies, and day-to-day fellowship. Studying God's Word together and praying for one another is foundational to who we are as Christ's church. All that we do must be shaped by the Bible and covered in prayer. God designed us to live in relationship with him AND with his people. We want to build a community that cares for each other in tangible ways and can speak the truth in love to each other.
