Comunidad

When I first accepted to be a missionary for 2 years in Barcelona, God laid on my heart an idea for an event. Community is essential for walking in a relationship with Jesus– we are the Body of Christ. So what if I brought my friends and family together via art, music, and coffee, and speak to them about what God is doing in Spain? This would be a chance to not only rally their support, but allow God to speak to them as well through conversations and worship. Thus, came “Comunidad”.

Here are a few thoughts from la Biblia about Christ’s community. Community is a group that:

Most Spaniards have no idea what true, Christ-centered community looks like. Less than 1% of Spaniards are even evangelical Christians! At the International Church of Barcelona, we place extreme value on community in order to grow together as well as draw unbelievers in. If we begin to LOOK like the Body of Christ as God intended, we will draw unbelievers in. Jesus said, “By this ALL will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:35
