When we look at the early church, we see deep dependence on God, open hands willing to give and serve where needed, and a community of accountability and grace. We love Jesus and pray together regularly, we pitch in and serve where we can, and we keep short accounts with each other. A long standing directive at New Cov has been to take risks, and if it doesn’t work out, to “clean up what you mess up.” We also work hard on tasks, but above all we value each other as brothers and sisters in Christ. It does no good to love Jesus if you leave a wake of broken relationships in your path. If you take your calling and Jesus’ church seriously, you’ll fit right in.
