The mission of God has a church. So the church needs to be in sync with the mission of God. This is the guiding philosophy of the Forge Missions Training Network, which has helped church leaders and laypeople alike all over the world to reach their neighbors, their neighborhoods and their communities with the gospel. In these guides you and your friends will be equipped to be missionaries where you are&-which is why God has a church in the first place. In Community: Living as the People of God you'll explore the dynamic image of church not as a building but a people, not a place but a movement, not a weekly event but a lifestyle. You'll consider how you and your friends might begin to employ your skills and gifts not as a service to the church but as a fulfillment of God's mission to spread the good news of God's kingdom to the ends of the earth. And you'll gain a fresh understanding of how you might relate to one another not as members of an institution but as a family on an exhilarating adventure.
